My Tour Experience at River Ridge at Avon

I didn't feel it had the right set up for my loved one. They did have aides for overnight care and a nurse on call.

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!!!

The community is pretty clean. The staff is friendly. Like with any community, it can take some time for the staff to attend to my loved one's needs. We do think the food is pretty good here. We do feel like River Ridge At Avon is a good value for the price.

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!
