There are always choices, and meals are served in a comfortable, gracious setting accompanied by top-notch servers.

Our independent living community is home to an upscale River's Edge Restaurant, and just down the hall near our catered assisted living is the cozy Fireside Café. Comfortable dining rooms are part of our Masonic Health Care Center, Hickory Suites Rehabilitation, Compass Point Catered Assisted Living, and Riverside Lodge Memory Care communities. Catering services and private event spaces are also available for your special occasion.

We provide independent and catered/assisted living apartments, memory care, and skilled nursing. Our onsite physical, occupational, and speech therapists offer rehabilitation services for both short-term stays and outpatient needs (a wonderful asset for those who live anywhere on our campus or for those in the community). If needs change over time, our phenomenal interdisciplinary team works with residents and their families to determine if and when a move to a different level of care is necessary.
