My name is Katherine Tomaso and I have been a resident here at Riverside Rehab since November of 2015, and it has been a pleasure staying here. I am very impressed with the time and dedication the staff has towards the residents. Before coming here I heard that a lot had changed since my last visit. There were complaints of the staff and concerns regarding the food that was being served. I am happy to say that while staying here I have had a visit from Tony, Food Services Director who has listened and has met my nutritional needs. I have also met with Penni, the administrator and she has been excellent in making sure my stay has been a wonderful experience. Recently I had a fall and the attention I received was outstanding. I understand that the nurses have long days and for the most part are very busy, so the attention I get makes me feel extra special. I know that in every healthcare facility there are lot of room for improvement and since Rome wasn't built in a day, I know that with all the effort I see every day, Riverside will be an outstanding facility. Thank you so much.
