When it became apparent that my Mom was spending too much time alone and would benefit from having the opportunity to socialize on a daily basis while still maintaining her independence the Riverstone was the obvious choice.  Who doesn't like to have housekeeping, social activities, and home cooked meals provided in a warm and inviting atmosphere?  Mom has been a resident for 18 months and plans to be a resident as long she is able.

Family - of Riverstone Resident

My mother was living with a family member after giving up her home of many years after my father passed away. The transition was difficult for her even though she had many comforts. She was lonely and spent many hours sleeping in her room. 

We made the decision to move her to RIverstone, she now has a large room with all of her things around her, she is no longer lonely,she has caring people around her at all times and my brother and I heard my mom belly laugh for the first time in a long time. Life does not get much better than this. 
P.S. my mom has 4 children and all of us lived either in different countries or cities after each of us married
