Great experience

Mom is doing really well here. They have done a great job of taking care of her. I would tell others that the staff are very accommodating to any additions that you may want or need when moving in. The apartments are really big, she has got tons of space for her things. We would highly recommend The Rivers.... Read more

A great option for south of the river.

So far things are going well. They've been easy to work with, and the transition went very smoothly. The employees at the top are reachable, and you can get to them for questions all the time. They did reach out in the first month to make sure things were going well and we had everything we needed. I also really liked that in that first week she was there, the head nurse, the doctor, everybody came in to introduce themselves to her. It's a very clean facility. Everything is spotless when I go in. She really liked the food when she first moved in, but they got a new chef that she's less excited about. They seem to have a good variety of activities, and they're doing outings and things. She's been happy with the activities. I think all of these types of places are too expensive, but overall they're providing the things they promised initially.

Very Caring - Would Highly Recommend THe Riers

We really like it here. I feel like they are very caring and attentive. I feel comfortable with my loved one being in their care. Overall it's been clean. We had an issue with a leak that resulted in some mold on the wall, but they've repaired it and taken the appropriate steps. They recently just changed the food, and it's much better now. Activities are great as well.

Mom & I are both delighted

I appreciate the extra efforts and personal touch of Community Relations Director (name removed). Only two other places I visited had a comparable "non-institutional" feel, and they were both more expensive. Staff is delightful and invested in the well being of residents. Residents are extremely social and welcoming. Mom has a fabulous apartment and I am jealous!

Doesn't Feel Institutional - Very Welcoming Environment

We liked them from the start, and they had a great video virtual tour. It was low-fi and wasn't staged at all. It was jus someone walking around with an iPhone. But the overall impression was quite charming. What really made the video was that it started off at the apartment door being opened from the inside with the marketing person saying "Well hello, come on in." And that's been how we've experienced The Rivers, very welcoming from the start. The marketing person did a great job with follow-up and made it really easy for us, letting us know the next small step to take each step of the way. The facility is lovely and very pleasant. There are lots of little conversation areas around the building, and the residents seem to use them. The residents on the whole are extremely friendly. Every time I'm there, they're greeting me. The staff is lovely. They got to know my name and who I was immediately. They're cheerful to interact with and love my mom - and make a point of telling me so. My loved one thinks they're grand, which is the most important thing. She loves the food as well, and is buddies with the chef. There seem to be activities to do, but there could be room for more. Aside from having a space that's physically and aesthetically pleasing to be in, the staff are incredibly personable. Anybody who directly interacts with the residents on a regular basis, seems to be very warm and personable. The cleaning staff are the only ones I've encountered who aren't quite as outgoing, but they've been friendly as well. My loved one is delighted to be living here, and that makes me delighted as well.

Good Care at a Fair Price

We would recommend this community to others for their loved ones. The people we have spoken to all have been responsive to our questions or concerns about our loved one. There has been some staff turnover. This is an older community.

My review of The Rivers

We chose The Rivers because of the availability at the time. The room sizes at the facility are adequate for an assisted living place. The meals here are off a menu that residents are able to choose from. I would probably recommend for others who are looking.

I would recommend.

It is a safe place for my mom. The room sizes are pretty good and the layout of the community is good. My mom does not care for the food. They have nice outdoor space for the residents with a pond. They are currently remodeling the inside common areas.

Good place for senior living but not for memory care

They cleaned my mom's apartment weekly and changed her bedding. They brought her food in the evening. They had activities but she chose not to participate in many. They had opportunity to have a church service by video. They had an outbreak of the norovirus and due to the chef leaving, they had assistant caregivers preparing and serving the food who weren't trained to it. I feel that cleanliness around food was an issue which I think is why the virus continued to stick around there. The was a lot of staff turnover. The business office has stability issues and I would get billed several times for the same month.

Terrible place. Filed 2 claims with mn department of health. Be careful Management and nursing staff terrible as well as food. No consistent staff or management. Would never recommend anyone's love one to be there. Didn't give my family member correct medication for weeks and ordered hundreds of dollars of meds that they didn't administer. Moved my love one into a wonderful new facility and they were shocked with the over ordering and lack of administration of medication My family member endeded up in hospital because of lack of meds. So sad ....beware

Delightful new nurse

Never in my life have we met a more delightful young lady than [name removed], Director of Nursing. She made our mom feel that she was the most important person ever. She assured my brother and I to "trust" the team. We believe her. She is spirited and plans to lead the nursing staff to become great caregivers. The staff have assured us that she will be the best thing that will happen to the Rivers. The marketing team are sweet, but try hard to sell. They don't really want to answer questions about all the transition. In speaking to several tables of residents, they all are happy that they have a new nurse. We're excited, but cautious about our decision. We'll see. Mom's apartment is nice, but the community is old, dirty in appearance, and outdated. Our only hope, is mom gets great care. We hope [name removed] will lead the team to greatness. We love her!

[Name removed] was great. Very laided back. This place has only 1 bedroom units available as well. Big place but the rooms are smaller then the other two places. My parents will have to decide if they ever have a 32 bedroom available.

Bad experience at the Rivers

The Rivers is not the place to send your parent who needs memory care! My Dad who lives with my Mom who has dementia had a horrible experience living at the Rivers! The lack of care, response to emergency , medication mismanagement, poorly trained staff, lack of activities, amongst constant flu quarantines made this place a living hell for them. They were over charged for services they didn't even receive. We had to move them after 4 months.

Best facility in Minnesota.

My grandmother is currently residing in the new memory care unit. She definitely needs to be in a secure unit, but her dementia isn't as advanced as most of the other residents in all the other memory care units we looked at. But at The Rivers, they noticed this and so they created a second momory care unit for people that are still in the early stages of alzheimers but need the security of a locked unit. It is so nice for Nana to have others in the same boat as her and its esp nice my Nana has others to talk to, or do activities with, or even just not feel like she's being punished and locked in a unit with people that are constantly reminding her of what she has to look forward to with this awful disease. I think she has a much more positive attitude and has had less behaviors. SHe's sleeping and eating better and I think she's happier than I have seen her in years. And we owe it all to The Rivers! They actually care a lot about their tenants and are constantly trying to make a difference in their lives. You can tell that they are not just in it for the money but they have a passion for what they do. I would definitely recommend ANYONE looking for senior living or memory care to go check out this amazing facility and if they don't offer something you really wanted, you can ask and they will probably work on getting it for you. They have been so helpful to Nana and all our family. They really are a Godsend.
