“When I walked into The Rio Grande I fell in love and I didn’t want to leave. The people I met were very friendly and positive. The environment is beautiful and comfortable. I enjoy being sociable in the dining room while eating delicious meals. The activities and games provide great entertainment and amusement. The managers are easy to talk to and very caring. They work hard, long hours and are available 24/7 for emergencies. I feel very safe and happy here.”

“I had recently lost my wife and was not happy staying in a big house all by myself. My barber suggested I check out The Rio Grande and I did. I walked in the front door and all I saw was a cruise ship without the water. I immediately fell in love with the surroundings and took the tour. I had an apartment before I left that day and have been happy ever since. The management and staff go out of their way to please me.”

“I am very, very grateful to be able to live here. It’s a wonderful place with such fabulous residents, and the most gracious and caring staff. Over many years of health problems, I have lived at other communities, but this is the first and ONLY place I have ever felt at home. It is a blessing to reside here.”
