Great Experience

It is a smaller community and a great place. They have really great people here. The community is a good value. They have been wonderful to work with from the onboarding process to the finding needs of our loved one out.

If We Knew How Good It Was, We Would Have Done It Sooner

I would recommend the community. We have been happy here. The care is better here than when our loved one was at home with an aide. Our loved one's health has been better. They did a good job with COVID. The community is close to family member's homes.

Assisted Living In Avon at Its Best

My loved one is in a studio which is adequate for her needs and her care. In addition, the one bedroom apartment is a very generous space if your loved one would like to spread out a bit more. The River Ridge staff is excellent at communicating and has gone above and beyond to assist to my loved one's needs. Happy Hour at the Bistro is so nice for them to get out and socialize and something my loved one looks forward to each day. Concerts and other activities such as magicians, comedians have been great! All the "themed" parties are very festive and fun. Even during this difficult time with the pandemic, they have tried to "get creative" with activities to keep residents engaged. The hair salon is a wonderful amenity that my loved one takes advantage of. Overall, a very caring and clean environment!

A safe and friendly place to call home

Our mother has been living at River Ridge for a year and a half and we have been very pleased with her experience. She had only been there 9 months before covid restrictions were put into place. River Ridge has done an amazing job putting safety measures in place for the residents and staff. As frustrating it is not to be able to see mom when they are in lockdown, the knowledge that they are keeping her safe outweighs the frustration. The staff is very attentive which is so appreciated. Our mothers medications have always been brought to her in a timely manner. The staff works diligently to try to make things interesting for the residents in this strange time. Mom says the food is good and varied. The building is very well kept. The rooms are very nice and the weekly cleaning is a very nice plus!(as well as laundry!!) It’s easier to reflect on pre-covid as there were many more activities available for the residents, trips to restaurants or museums, the Bistro in the lobby, daily ice cream socials and happy hour, movies etc. Hopefully this will be back sooner rather than later but in the meantime they are doing a great job and working their hardest to make River Ridge a great place to live! They are succeeding!

Amazing Staff and An Awesome Place!

My mother is a current resident of River Ridge. Anyone who knows me will tell you that I am extremely hard to please but I can genuinely say that I am extremely pleased with our experiences thus far at River Ridge. The staff is amazing, thoughtful and caring. My mother is gluten-free and on her move in day she was greeted with a Welcome Basket full of gluten-free treats that I know the Executive Director went out and bought herself. My mother moved in to River Ridge during Covid so it is hard to say what the activities will be like once Covid is a thing of the past, but I've got to tell you that the daily ice cream delivery to my mom's apartment is a great treat. I strongly recommend River Ridge....trust me if it's good enough for my mom (and my high standards) it will be great for your loved one!!!

Excellent place! People are wonderful!

My mother and I visited several facilities searching for the 'right' assisted living apartment over a year ago. Once we saw River Ridge our minds were easily made up. Not only is the campus beautiful but more importantly the hand picked staff and administrators are beyond compare. Their caring, compassion and kindness is evident everyday, and on more than one occasion I have caught someone doing something really nice for my mom. Every visit affirms we chose the right place . I highly recommend River Ridge to a anyone looking for an assisted living facility!

Nice facility, very clean. Rooms are shared suites which would not work for my Mom, but might be nice for others.

Can't say enough good things

[Removed] at A Place for Mom was fabulous. I was online looking at options for my mom at 9pm on a Friday and she called me right away. We ended up talking for almost an hour. The following morning a gentleman called me from the facility and next Thursday we were having lunch there. Everybody in the community is great here. I have said it to many people; you feel like everybody reaches out to you. They are all there to do their job, but also they feel like a family. The wait staff is kind, nice, and just unbelievable. They have a doctor there who has now become my parent’s doctor. I can’t tell you how many people and how many times they check in on my father. Before he was in bed for 1 ½ months straight and he wasn’t doing much of anything. Because of his condition he was administered medication 4 times a day. I asked if we could switch to 3 times a day and from that is when everything changed. Now he will talk to the wait staff, he will actually engage in conversation, and everybody that I met would not believe the difference in my dad. My mother kept saying that she felt like they’re on their honeymoon. She went to Europe and went out to eat often. Here she and my father go to the dining area and the waiter would take their order. The waiter is from Italy and he would know the places that my mother would tell him about. He would sing with them too during meals. It is such a wonderful place. There’s dignity, it’s like an apartment place, and I even stayed overnight there. They have things going on all the time like the media room where residents can go and watch a movie. The facility is a safe and secured place. The doors lock at 8pm and you have to push a button to have someone come and let you in. They’re all lovely people, the transition has been really nice, and there’s not enough good things to say. I can walk out of here and not have to worry about my parents at all. I know that they are under great care.

I am looking for a new place for my dad, who has dementia. I liked it here. The space is attractive and clean, I saw many positive interactions between the residents and staff and the residents appeared to be fully engaged.

Mom's New Home and Good Care

This has been a great community for my mom. The staff is keeping me informed on her progress. The community is clean with good environment. The menu is outstanding and my mom likes the variety of the meals. They do have activities that are offered for her to participate with the other residents. I would be happy to recommend this community for other families for the good care and value.

Fantastic Staff!!

My parents have been here for about five weeks and so far everything has been going wonderful for them . I could have never picked a better fit. The staff are fantastic and provide them with with nothing but the best of care. They both have improved immensely in every day life skills. They get three healthy meals a day and are outside often throughout the day doing different activities and getting some fresh air. We are very happy costumers and thrilled with the results we are seeing. I owe a big thank you to this place.

Well Maintained Community

My tour of this community went pretty well. The community from what I saw appeared to be well maintained. The staff was friendly and welcoming. It was a nice experience, and they treated my family and I very well. This is a nice community, but not the one for us.

Toured This Community For My Father, and It was Good

I toured this facility for my father and his needs. My tour went well. Everybody was kind and friendly. The staff I met was informative and answered my questions. From what I saw the community appeared to be well maintained, everything looked nice and clean. It was a pleasant tour, just not the one for my father.

A nice community.

Overall, I would recommend River Ridge at Avon. They modified my mother-in-law's pain meds and there was an interaction between the meds and she had to spend some time in the hospital. The medical staff either wasn't aware of the potential intereraction or ignored them. We were surprised by that. The rest of the staff there is wonderful. It's a nice community. The food is very good. They do offer activities but she has not participated yet.
