Hear from some of our residents, guests, and families about their experience with Generations at Riverview.
Jospehine T. reflects on her mother’s Jean L. stay at our rehab unit at Oakton Pavillion:
My mother is 101 years old, and was at Oakton Pavillion for 6 weeks. She loved everyone there and she loved it so much that she did not want to come home. I was there all the time through dinners and they never said a word. The therapy team especially Kiko and Franciso were just wonderful. The people there were wonderful to her and are wonderful to everyone there.
They went over and above and helped me out with her medicine, they monitored her closely and when they saw a problem they checked with her doctor and showed me what to do when it was time for her to go home.
I have told everyone at my church that my mother was at Oakton Pavillion and everyone is wonderful. When she was being placed, I told the hospital I want to go to Oakton Pavillion, it’s not a doubt in my mind if she had to be placed again, I would choose Oakton Pavillion.
A few years ago, Ed was the caregiver for his wife Helen. It got to a point where Ed and his family realized that it was too much for him. He was overwhelmed not only with his wife’s daily care, but he had to take care of himself and it was too hard to keep up with the house and cooking. Ed’s son in law knew of Generations at Oakton through friends and felt this was a perfect place for both Ed and Helen. Helen is at Oakton Pavillion receiving long term care while Ed is next door at Oakton Arms in his own apartment. Ed has the ability to visit his wife at any time, but can also enjoy the convenience of meals and housekeeping to keeping him as independent as possible. Ed is happy that his wife is being taken care of properly and it had made life much easier to enjoy.
When Josephine’s husband passed away, she sold her house and moved into a condo. She soon realized she didn’t like living there and didn’t like the way the building was run. While visiting a friend at Oakton Arms, she toured the community and instantly knew this was the place for her. She talked to her children and they agreed that this would be much better than where she was living. Since Josephine moved to Oakton Arms, she feels it was the perfect fit. She has made many new friends and feels like she has a bigger family now. She is happy knowing she is safe and around so many good people.
