Independent Living Reviews for Rivermont Independent Living

I visited this facility

Everything was very nice at Rivermont except the size of the apartments. The staff who assisted us was congenial and helpful. The atmosphere was very friendly. It's a clean environment. There were exercise classes, attendance at the sporting events at the University of Oklahoma, church attendance, and some arts and crafts.

I am a friend or relative of resident

My Mother needed a comfortable home, where she would feel safe and happy and one that she would grow with the knowledge that she was in a good place in her life. We chose Rivermont Retirement Community. We were amazed with the spacious living and cafe area. The natural light streaming down gave light and beauty to the rooms which created a feeling of joy. My mother has lived at Rivermont for two years. She has had a wonderful experience making new friends, has participated in activities, dinned with friends, enjoyed fantastic cuisine, listened to musicians, and amazed by the artists and writers. There are so many celebrations at Rivermont to enjoy. My mother felt comfortable in her apartment that she has decorated with her favorite furniture and pictures of our family. She has met authors and so many interesting people while living at Rivermont. The staff and volunteers are fantastic professionals. They are always kind and caring. Rivermont's gift is a beautiful home with loving residents that share their life with joy. I am so happy and thankful that we chose Rivermont.
