My mom was a resident at River Grove for 12 1/2 months before she passed. River Grove was wonderful the entire time. Each room is private so your family member doesn't have to share space. The staff is caring and loving even when dementia patients are not so much. Every request and/or concern was addressed immediately and when my mom had to be moved to another cottage with more care in her last 5 days the staff moved all her items to the new room for us. They were always there to help with anything even to listen to us or give a hug. ALL the staff is caring and I would not hesitate to refer anyone in need to this facility. The grounds are clean and well kept and they have outside areas that are safe as well.
I recently started at River Grove and I can honestly say, this is a Fantastic place to work. The Management team is Amazing, always willing to go above and beyond. The Caregiving Staff are the most compassionate group of young adults I have met. It's an absolutely great atmosphere, and I am having a great time being employed there.
River Grove has changed the game. Michelle B is amazing with my grandma! It's all she talks about how sweet and kind Michelle is and she is always checking on grandma. It's truly amazing! This girl needs a raise! Kudos to you Michelle thank you for what you do with our elderly loved ones! It takes a special kind of person to do this job!
You know, there’s not many good things I can say about this coming from a former employee. The former administrator there does not care about anyone but herself. I was being bullied by 3 caretakers at that facility, not knowing if they are still employed there or not. But every time I would report directly towards her, actions were not taken and I felt like my mental health did not matter so I left. It was drama central. So many no call no shows and people reporting after reporting a specific care partner that no actions were taken until an employee wrote a letter claiming that he would quit if she was not fired. Overall, amazing facility for your loved one to live. I miss working there, but I don’t miss the drama, unnecessary rumors and constantly being overworked to the point my mental health diminished.
This place has been so very helpful and understanding of our situation with my mom. A few issues have come up but mostly due to understanding how things work. This was the hardest point in my life for my dad and I to put my mom in memory care but at the same time River Grove made the transition as easy as it could be. Thank you all for being so caring not only to my mom but to my dad when he comes daily to visit. I would check this place out for sure if looking for memory care.
