Testimonial

"The residents regularly reinforce the importance and value of showing kindness and acceptance. Additionally, Riverside’s talented and caring staff consistently display genuine compassionate attention to each and every resident. And, the Women’s Board continues to go out of their way to provide warm-hearted assistance, creative programs and activities for the residents, along with much needed fundraising. It is a pleasure to be a part of the Riverside Family!"

− Jim Walsh, former Riverside Foundation Board of Directors

"If I had to point to one thing that stands out at Riverside, it would unquestionably be the staff. Riverside has only had two Executive Directors in 40 years. Both have led with vision, passion and commitment. The staff also reflects those traits. Many have been here for decades, and all are dedicated and caring. It is that loving culture that makes Riverside such a special place."

− Prudence Hallarman, Vice President Board of Directors and Women’s Board Member
