Heather The Residence at Riverbend
I visited this facility We visited The Residence at Riverbend for my mom. I like that it wasn't too large and it was a small enough and nice community. It was clean and everybody was friendly. I spoke with Tara, and she was always very thorough, very courteous, and answered all my questions. I liked her. We haven't tried the food yet but they sent us home with banana bread for my mom. The place was very well-kept, it was clean and had lots of spaces for people to go and be. It was very well done. They had a gym, a hair salon, they had a music room or a place to go and watch TV or shows together. They also have pianos and they could sing, they have libraries and places to sit outside. The place was nice.

We chose Residence at Riverbend because when we were just looking for a place to go for a few days we came here and we liked it so when it was necessary, this is where we wanted to go. We have a 1 bedroom and it has a large living space and room, plenty of space for our things. Everybody is very congenial, if you ask for help you will get it. It is a good place and I would recommend to others looking.

Pam The Residence at Riverbend
I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident I love it there at The Residence at Riverbend. I couldn't be more pleased. It's a perfect layout for the assisted living where my mom lives. They have a first floor built around a central garden, so it's just beautiful and tranquil. The staff is all amazing people. They really can't do more for you. The rooms are also very lovely. She's in a shared room and they have a kitchen and a bathroom. The food's delicious. They have an on-staff kitchen in there. You can eat from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on a menu and you're served by waitresses. The dining area is like a five-star hotel. It's super nice and I couldn't be happier. They send out a monthly calendar of activities and exercises every day. They have different games, they have music, they have people and bands that come in, and people that come in and sing to them. The facility is absolutely beautiful, well-kept, clean, and looks brand-new every time I go in. They have a movie room, an exercise room, a music room, a library, a game room, and the full-service dining room. They have an outdoor garden and residents can also have their own garden. They go out on field trips all the time too. They have a fireplace room that you can go hang out in. I wish I had made the move earlier. I think it's great. All of these places are expensive but I think it's worth it for the level of care that she got and for how safe and secure I feel that she's there.

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident The staff are impressive - everyone from the wait staff to the maintenance crew to the managers are thoughtful, kind and caring. Wow, what a difference from other facilities I've had loved ones in. The food is excellent. And, you can get food anytime you want throughout the day. Delicious! While COVID is challenging, the staff is conscientious and thoughtful. Activities are scheduled to address social, emotional and intellectual areas -- and staff implemented a program we suggested. The cost, while high, is more affordable than many places. I highly recommend this facility.

Nancy D. The Residence at Riverbend
As difficult a decision as it was to move my parents into assisted living, I knew they would be well cared for here ... and that gives me peace of mind! I checked out and visited 6 different assisted living communities, but I knew immediately after stepping foot into Riverbend that this would be best for my parents. Everyone at Riverbend is so friendly, supportive, and responsive. The building looks and feels new, it is well kept, they offer many activities, and the food is very good. I really love the Residence at Riverbend!

Rick The Residence at Riverbend
Bringing a loved one to residential care is alway a huge moment for an entire family, and the staff at Riverbend from sales to the Reflections Neighborhood staff were patient, compassionate and professional in helping us make that transition. Starting in Sales with Tara Jalbert and Executive Director Anthony Fucaloro to Marnie Stasiuk, Arthur Digiacomo, and the staff of the Reflections Memory Care Neighborhood, we were walked through the entire process with great care, and attention to detail- especially in the midst of a pandemic! Their follow up and feedback has also been excellent. We are sleeping well knowing our Mom is content and well cared for in her new surroundings. I highly recommend the Residence at Riverbend in Ipswich.

Edward The Residence at Riverbend
The Residence at Riverbend in Ipswich has served a key role in the care and comfort of my 90 year old father. In July of 2020, after the sudden and unexpected loss of his wife of 52 years, it was time to find a place Dad. After six months we are thrilled to say that Anthony and his team have exceeded Dad's expectations. The care givers are exceptional, the food is 5 star, the engagement is varied and creative, the facilities are gorgeous and the attention to detail is one of a kind. The Residence at Riverbend was there for us in a time of need and continues to foster care and fulfillment for Dad, each and every day. To Anthony and all the wonderful care givers, thank you!!!

The staff and facilities are first rate! Both of my in-laws were in other assisted living/nursing homes in the area at different times and the quality of care here is better than any other we have experienced. The nursing and personal care staff are more than accommodating, really work with the family to make the best experience for the resident. The food is also amazing and the place looks like a spa.

Mom was one of the firsts residents at Riverbend. She went from living with her daughter to once again having her own place with the added benefit of friends and skilled care. The care workers became her friends too...so much so she tried to play matchmaker with grandchildren. Place is beautiful. Thanks to the Riverbend staff for their excellent treatment of our mom.

My mother lived there for 2 1/2 years and loved it. The staff was wonderful to her and she made many good friends with other residents, often dining together and socializing. With her children (myself included) living out of the area, it was a relief to know that she was in a safe and secure environment with an attentive staff.

Robin The Residence at Riverbend
It is a great feeling to wake up and want to go to work. I love my job. There are so many caring and wonderful associates in this one building that it is humbling. Every discipline is active in caring for our residents. We work together as a team and communicate on a regular basis about the best practice approach. Everyone has a voice from our Executive Director, Housekeeping team, Kitchen team, Activities and of course our RCA's. I would bring my Mom here to live and feel that she was being well cared for and living a great life. Working with Pam Simpson has been one of the best parts of my job. Never have I worked with someone that works so hard to help maintain positive relationships with the associates and residents. She is caring, compassionate and 100% involved in what is going on in the building. It is a great place to work.

Recently I had the difficult task of aiding in the selection a living community in which to place my grandmother. After much research, my mother and I selected The Residence at Riverbend and it was such a great decision. The facility itself was lovely and had so many events going on. However, the staff namely Robin the care director, was so focused on my grandmother's care that I was ultimately put at ease. She was constantly in communication with me, answering any and all questions that I had. I am very grateful to the staff at The Residence at Riverbend for welcoming my grandmother to her new home.

It was a difficult decision for our family to put my mother into an Assisted Living Facility. We had many questions and the staff at the Riverbend were very patient with us, helping us along and answering all questions knowledgeably and professionally. It is a well kept and clean facility & the staff is always friendly. My mother is very happy there and that puts our families minds at ease.

We have had the best experience with The Residence at Riverbend. We recently placed my mother there and they have exceeded our expectations. First of all the director, Pamela was extremely friendly, professional, efficient and beyond helpful at helping us make the transition. She assisted us in making our choices and helping to calm any fears I or my mother had. The staff since our transition have been such a delight. They are friendly, professional and always are going the extra mile. Thank you to Pamela and her team for making such a hard life transition for us a pleasant experience. We are very happy with our decision and find comfort in such a fantastic team.

Ed The Residence at Riverbend
I have lived at Riverbend almost two years, and I'm spoiled rotten. My meals are all excellent, I have many friends, and there is plenty to do every day, My room is cared for and everything is changed weekly. I especially enjoy the daily exercise class. I arrived here on July 15, 2014 with my 80 pound black lab named Rosey and learned that there is a 20 pound limit for dogs. Well, the staff took her aside and when they returned I learned that she could stay. From that day on she had many new friends and she loved the Happy Hour every day. When Rosey passed everyone missed her. We had a service for her and we all attended the planting of a rose bush in her memory. Shortly after that I got a rescue dog from Texas named Molly. She is part Grayhound and part yellow lab and except for seeing snow for the first time she fit in well.Everyone, residents and the staff, all welcomed me and my dogs with open arms. In the beginning I was skeptical about this new way of life. My kids pushed me and they insisted that I spend my money on myself saying I deserve the Riverbend way of life, and I'm glad I listened. This old trooper and former police chief is very happy here.
