Senior living.

The Rivers way.

The Rivers is ready for all our residents, with compassion and a person-centered approach to senior living.


Proud history.

The Rivers opened in 1999 on land previously owned by The River Hills United Methodist Church. The community adopted the name “The Rivers” because of its location just south of the Minnesota and Mississippi Rivers. In 2016, The Rivers joined the Transforming Age family of communities and officially became a not-for-profit organization.
