Riverside Manor continues to grow

Have you seen Riverside Manor in Newcomerstown lately? If not, you need to stop by and see the exciting changes being added to the facility.

Their residents, their families and the community showed their need for more space, a Memory Care Unit and a rehabilitation center, and they listened to those needs!

With much excitement and anticipation, they are right on schedule to open the new addition in May.

With the 28 new private rooms, residents will be able to enjoy living in beautifully-decorated surroundings with the privacy they need and desire whether they are along-term or short-term resident.

Riverside Manor offers a Memory Care Unite for folks with Alzheimer's or Dementia. Their highly-skilled staff is dedicated to helping these residents with each stage of memory illness.

The Memory Care Unit is small and homey with a low noise level to aid in less confusion for the resident.

The designers of the new Memory Unit thought of even the small things that make a big difference to memory impaired residents such as color schemes, locator signs for important rooms like the "kitchen" or the "bathroom."

Memory boxes will help Alzheimer's and Dementia residents identify their own room. The boxes will contain momentos and photos from their past and will be located just outside their rooms. For the safety of the residents, Riverside Manor uses the Wander-Guard system to ensure that the residents who have a tendency to wonder will be safe and secure in the unit at all times.

Riverside Manor is also excited about the addition of a 6,000-square foot therapy room. This state-of-the-art area will offer all of the equipment needed for their team of skilled therapists to get residents back on their feet. Physical, occupational and speech therapy as well as respiratory services and restorative programs are all offered at Riverside.

Whether you are an in-patient or out-patient, long-term or short-term, the caring staff will make your stay as pleasant as possible.

A few of the professional services provided to their residents are physical services, psychiatric services, podiatry services, social services, vision as well as lab services.

Riverside Manor is growing not only in size but also in service. While growing in size and service, they will always continue to provide the same warm loving atmosphere their residents are used to.

Riverside Manor is located at 1100 E. State Rd., Newcomerstown.
