    The building may be old, but has lots of character and the residents, staff, volunteers, families and friends make up for it in heart! Care is their top priority, not a fancy new building like other facilities. Under the new management, there has been a complete 180 degree turnaround. Those on the leadership team come with a great deal of experience, knowledge, education and passion for what they are doing. I would highly recommend coming to take a tour, and you won't be disappointed, as I was pleasantly surprised! The Admissions team will give you a warm welcome and will have you feeling like part of the family in no time! And the food is remarkable! I have been to other facilities in the area, and residents at other facilities have raved about how amazing the food is at Riverbend and how other facilities can't compete! And the therapy team is like no other! Several families just marvel at how fast their loved ones are progressing and improving just days after the hospital. I would highly recommend checking out Riverbend for your loved one!

    Nursing and management is a JOKE!! If u need care for a loved one with dementia or Alzheimer's this is NOT the place for them. Any aggressive behavior shown they won't them out even if u have a PRN ordered to be given. They won't give it and want the person taken to hospital. Also, the nurse is not always on the floor due to short staffed so the nurse works 2 areas even with the patients that need watched closer such as my dad. Bad bad situation! Don't go there if u care about your loved ones!!

Types of Problems at Nursing Homes

Some issues within a nursing home are much more severe than others. Medicare evaluates each problem based on 2 scales: the number of residents affected by a problem and the severity of the potential or actual harm to residents based on the problem. We have color coded the matrix below to make it easier to pick out the more severe problems. In general, orange and red issues related to the treatment of a resident are considered substandard quality of care.
