WHAT IS SUPPORTIVE HOUSING?
Supportive Housing is an option for people who are unable to live independently in their home but are not ready to move into a Personal Care Home, it is an excellent choice for people who require 24-hour support and care. This program provides assistance for people with physical limitations and ongoing health conditions such as Alzheimers or Dementia. Residents receive support and non-medical assistance with activities involved in daily living such as hygiene, dressing, medication reminders, and recreational activities.

It was difficult for her to move from her home into a seniors place but she loved it immediately, we all did. I feel blessed and extremely grateful to have found such an incredible, loving, supportive residence for my mom. It is her home and she loves it, as well as all the staff who care for her so well.
- Shellie Johannesson on Behalf of McCaw family
At Riverside Lions they have their own kitchen in the same building with a professional chef and kitchen staff that prepare all meals fresh daily. In the past, myself and a few other members of our family have had the pleasure and opportunity to join mom and the other tenants for a meal at Riverside Lions on a few occasions, and the meal we had was always served hot, fresh, and tasty just like a home cooked meal should be. There is also great group of staff on every individual floor, caring for and keeping watch on all the tenants for their safety and well-being. If for any reason someone is missing in the dinner hall, it is quickly noticed by the staff and someone will go to their room and get them. On a daily basis, the staff on every floor also will administer the medication my mom requires, properly and professionally, This was also a relief for my sister and me. There is also a great number of enjoyable activities and daily exercise for tenants to engage in several times a day if desired. Myself and my whole family is so happy we found Riverside Lions for my mom and I know she couldn’t be happier.
