A True Family Environment
My father-in-law lived here for 2 years before recently passing away. He remained at River Bend in comfort through his last days and I couldn't be more grateful to the staff that he grew to love for all of their attentiveness throughout his stay here and especially in the days before he passed away. Their compassion was evident, not only for my father-in-law, but also for every family member and friend who came in to visit and say goodbye. River Bend will always come highly by me.
Best Assisted Living home in the area!
My sister lived at River Bend for almost 4 years and recently passed away there. The staff and administration are the most caring and compassionate people I have ever met. My sister absolutely loved living here and loved the food as well! They were always so helpful when we had questions and very accommodating when we came to visit. We will definitely miss all the staff that we have come to know so well and highly recommend River Bend to anyone looking for a nice, clean facility with loving staff members who actually care!
Think twice about River Bend
My mother is a resident of Riverbend Assisted Living in Great Bend, KS. She has lived there for over two years. When she first moved in and up until about 7 months ago I would have given 5's in all of the areas. Now I will give the residence a 3. They have had many of their help leave and they are very short handed. My mother's care is not anywhere near the quality it used to be. There was one incident, not that long ago, when only one care giver was in the entire facility. There have been numerous times when we have asked administration to relay a message to the CNA,s and CMA"s about a request for mom. Often times they will assume the message was given, but didn't check with anyone to see if the request was actually carried out. An example of this would be about 2 months ago my mother threw up and some of it hit the carpet. We asked to please have it cleaned up and still to this day, September 19th, it is still there. I do not put blame on the care staff for many of the problems because they do not have enough help to adequately care for the residents. My mother enjoys living at River Bend because of the friends she has made, so at this time she will not be moving. But if I were looking for an assisted living facility for my loved one, I would give River Bend a second thought.
Good Food Menu
My dad liked this one real well. They have more of a menu when they had meals and the staff was really friendly and stuff there also. I lived in Great Bend at the time and I had meals there that they didn't charge anything if I wanted to eat with my dad. That was really nice.
