We wish to thank your organization for providing medical and custodial care to our dear mother Doris Lucille Edwards during her stay at your facility. As you may know, God and Savior Jesus Christ called her into his arms on December 24, 2013. This is a very difficult time for my family, but we are very appreciative for our time with the wonderful mother she was. We are whole heartedly thankful to all whom provided her special care and made efforts to meet her needs. Bless you!

– Steven, Regina, Brenda, Frayne, Mara, Deliah & Carla Edwards


Thank you for the thoughtfulness and kindness in remembrance- with a card to me. Your sharing of my sorrow is deeply appreciated. Even though, I do not know each one personally, I certainly appreciated the kind faces, as I walked through there those 34 days. Keep up the good work! It was appreciated more than words can say.

– Lois V. Holstein


It has been painful to watch our beloved Mom and Grandma hurt both physically and emotionally when all we could do was love her and hold her hand through it. What has been such a comfort has been the care that was given to her and to our family by the staff at Riverview. The staff cared for her with such true compassion and kindness, a care that went beyond doing their job to the best of their ability. It was a comfort when we had to be away from her to know that she was cared for so completely. Words cannot convey the depth of our gratitude for all that each staff member who cared for her meant to us. As a woman who care for so many people all of her life, we are grateful to have that care returned to her in such a way that honored her legacy. We will never forget the integrity and kindness of your staff in caring for our beloved Mother and Grandma, Lola Lane. From the heart of every single member of our family, we would like to thank each and every one of you for being an important part in the final days of her life. May God bless you.

– Gary Lane & family


We would like to thank you for taking such good care of our mother during the final weeks of her life. The staff was kind, compassionate and caring at that critical time. Please convey our deepest appreciation to Tracy and Dinah and all the caregivers of the Outlook Pointe Unit.

– The family of H. Parrish


Our father, Charles Linamen, was a River View resident from October 4- November 8, 2012. Family members and friends visited Papa 2-3 times daily and had the opportunity to interact with staff members and observe facility operations.

River View is a clean, attractive facility that offers highly professional and respectful care and services. Staff members were, without exception, pleasant and helpful.

Papa made significant progress during his stay and continues to do well. What River View staff members do professionally and personally makes a positive difference in the lives of people. Thank you for making a positive difference in Papa’s quality of life.

– Patricia L. Chasse


Just wanted to say thank you to the entire staff for taking such good care of my mom. You were always available + helpful + you are much appreciated.

– Family of E. Harris


Just wanted to thank you and the staff for everything you did for our mama while she was at Riverview. Mama passed away this morning at 12:35. We had expected to have her here longer but it wasn’t meant to be…we so enjoyed having her here at our house for the last 5 days. Despite being “displaced” from her beloved home, she genuinely appeared to be happy here as she told several friends and family members the same. Again- thank you for all your efforts- we appreciate the care you gave mama in her final days.

– Driver family


Thank you for all acts of kindness shown to my aunt during her stay at the nursing home. Your medical aid, professionalism, and concern for her well-being will be remembered by her family and mere words cannot reveal our depth of gratitude.

– Family of B. Brown


Thank you for all your help with my father. My family has been most impressed with the care that my father has received from everyone at your facility. The nurses and staff and all the therapists have been wonderful in helping my father. Please let them know how much we appreciate all their efforts.

– The Hayes Family


As a nurse I understand how serious my husbands’ condition was when he arrived at River View on the Appomattox. The care he has received from the nursing and rehab team has been priceless; he is well on his way to recovery and soon being able to come home. I would highly recommend River View to anyone in need of care!

– Catherine B.


I went to River View on the Appomattox for rehab after a knee replacement. I hesitated to stay as I thought being in a “nursing home” I would not get the rehab I needed in order to go home. I was wrong; the rehab team lead by “The Boss” Jessica was wonderful and I was home in 2 weeks. I will return to River View when I have surgery on the other knee!

– Barbara W.


My mother is currently residing at River View on the Appomattox Nursing Center. At the time of admission, the admissions and billing personnel, and other administrators were exceptionally cordial and helpful in explaining the admissions and financial process. Most importantly, the facility is clean and the staff appear to genuinely care about the well-being and safety of their residents.

– A. Manson


My father in law, James E. Schaeffer, stayed at Riverview on the Appomattox for approximately two months. “Pop” was past eighty years old at the time. He had been suffering from dementia, had become dehydrated and was not eating. “Pop” came to Riverview from a local hospital with a feeding tube after having lost so much strength that he was not physically strong enough to function.

“Pop” received wonderful care while at Riverview on the Appomattox. He gradually gained weight and strength, regained the ability and desire to eat, became physically active again, and after the two month stay was able to come home and live with our family for another year and a half. This progress was due to the quality care he received from nurses, assistants and therapists at Riverview on the Appomattox. The staff was always pleasant, caring, and professional.

My wife Robyn and I were very grateful for all that the Riverview on the Appomattox staff did for “Pop”.

– Roger Green


Thank you all so much for everything you did to make my stay at River View such a pleasure. I’m recommending everyone to River View.
