User Reviews

Both of my parents lived here due to dementia in their late stage of life. The management assured me of their safety and concern, but I found out all too soon that medication errors were common, incontinence was not managed, and in general promises were not kept. Staff cuts are also a problem and the expenses just get higher and higher. Call the ombudsman's office for info.

River Ridge is a wonderful assisted living community. Mom was extremely happy and well-cared for.
