My grandmother spent the final 8 months of her life here. Myself and my family could not be more happy with this facility and all of their staff. Very professional and always communicated with the family. They all took great care of my grandmother and we could not have asked for more. We are forever indebted for the love shown to my grandmother, ensuring her final days were as peaceful and comfortable as possible and providing top notch care that the family was unable to. Highly recommend!

My amazing and kind brother Billie was recently at River Towne Rehabilitation. The staff was amazing. They were helpful and kind and compassionate with all the patients and residents. The administration, nurses, CNA’s, and social workers were all informative with any in questions we had. The therapists in rehab were amazing and patient. My brother is a stronger, more confident man because of River Towne Rehabilitation. Thank you River Towne for all that you do.

Absolutely the best decision my family ever made was to move my aunt to this facility. Prior to coming to River Towne, my aunt was in an excellent, top-rated facility in Florida. They seemed to be taking great care of her, but she was basically depressed and becoming an invalid. Each time I visited or called, she was in her bed and mainly slept. NOT at River Towne!! My mother immediately began to show signs of progression, not only in her mental health but in her physical health as well after entering their center. After about a month at River Towne, I walked in one day to find her sitting up in a chair in her room, make up on and looking better than I had seen her look in a few years. It was like we had her back again! Her mental health is strong, her outlook bright, and she is back to herself.  They got her up each and every day, and she was thrilled about participating in rehab. She made friends with the other patients and even played bingo a few times a week. We were able to take her home and she is still thriving and living life to the fullest. I cannot say enough about this wonderful facility that gave my aunt back to us again! The therapy department gets it right by making sure the patient’s hit their goals. FIVE STARS all the way around. They truly care about patients and families at this facility!

I’m very content and feel optimistic about the progress I have made here at River Towne. I was looking for a small facility that offered a “family” type atmosphere. I feel safer and stronger knowing I will be going home without my spouse, who passed away in June due to Covid. River Towne’s staff has prepared me mentally and physically to accept my new normal. They have allowed my dog to visit and it just shows me the kind of people they are. They understood the assignment. When some days are more challenging for me, they know how to brighten my spirits and continue encouraging me by inviting my dog, Rosie, to visit. The entire staff is so unbelievably supportive and caring.  I am so grateful for the therapy department and how understanding and patient they are every day.  The staff takes care of my meals, housekeeping, and laundry while I have more time to focus on my healing process. River Towne Care and Rehabilitation Center has a true family value system and everything is focused ultimately on the patients and residents. I am proud to say, during my stay, it has been such a positive experience. I would highly recommend it to others.

When I came to River Towne Rehabilitation, I was recuperating from a fractured hip. My family was concerned for me living alone with just me and my youngest son. I’ve always been an independent woman and I wanted to continue to experience my independence. River Towne offered me that opportunity to be independent while in a safe and comfortable setting.”With the help of the caring nurses, CNA’s, therapy department, administative staff, my kind social worker, Mary and all the wonderful staff at River Towne, I was back on my feet before long and will be discharging home in a few days.  The dining room staff goes the extra mile to make sure the residents have good food and the meal experiences are always special. “Thank you River Towne for the peace of mind you have given me and my family.

Edna Godwin has been a Resident of River Towne Center since 2013.

She became President of the Resident Council in 2019.
Ms. Godwin decided to join the Resident Council when she arrived at RiverTowne to get involved. She decided to accept the nomination of President because she wanted to make a difference.
Meetings are always started with a prayer to lift up those residents who are in the hospital or have COVID.
She is proud of the renovations that are still taking place in the Center and is appreciative of the Center listening and taking action on all items shared in their meetings. In her spare time enjoys reading, puzzle books and spending time socializing with staff and other residents.

I have lived at River Towne Center for 3 years.  I had a stroke and was no longer able to take care of myself so I chose to become a Long Term Resident.  I enjoy playing Bingo and ordering take out. I love my roommate and visiting with the other Residents. I am blessed to be a part of the River Towne family.

The staff have been excellent and provide great care. I’m a professional artist and love providing the staff with my drawings. The food has been great as well and the fried chicken is off the chain. Great place for sub acute rehab!
