I didn't think I was ready for retirement living, and it took a little while to adjust to a different lifestyle. Just think--no cooking, cleaning, laundry or grocery shopping. WOW! Most importantly, you are not alone.

It will soon be three years since I came to live here and I haven't regretted it. I know you will like it to.

Nancy - Riverstone Resident

When I first moved into Riverstone, I thought I'd died and gone to heaven. It's a wonderful place to be and I'm very happy to be here.

Staff members at Riverstone all perform efficiently and politely. The place is very clean, laundry is expertly prepared, special requests are cheerfully accommodated by all staff.

Riverstone is renowned for its meals and rightly so. There is always a choice and all are delicious. Each meal has an assortment of pies, squares and puddings for dessert. Not to be missed is Mavis' Black Forest Cake.
