"River’s Bend was able to help me through a difficult time in my life. I was in need of wound care and rehab. River’s Bend was able to supply me with both. This was my first time in a rehab center and I could not have gone to a better one. The therapists were wonderful and the nursing staff attentive. All of the staff were really nice and concerned about me. Now back at home, I continue to do out-patient therapy at River’s Bend. I would like to thank all the staff at River’s Bend for helping me get back home again.”

– Arleen Hastreiter

"River’s Bend is the next best thing to home. It is very, very clean, nice, and quiet. The nursing service is great. The visiting hours are very flexible. Good food served with a smile. My doctor and wife had a lot to do with the decision to go to River’s Bend and I agreed. It is a good home.”

– William (Bill) Johnson

"They are helpful, friendly and pleasant. I appreciate activities offered...music events, holiday parties, etc."
