The Rivers is the perfect choice for anyone who desires to remain connected to the Burnsville area and stay engaged in familiar activities. This exceptional lifestyle offers the time and opportunities to discover new talents and make new friends.

Absolutely. Independent living residents at The Rivers have their choice between an apartment home with one or two bedrooms. You’re invited to make yourself at home by furnishing or decorating your residence. Assisted living residents have the comfort of private apartments with full kitchens, private bathrooms, and step-in showers.

Some of the amenities include a swim spa, exercise room, resident gardens, libraries, heated underground parking with car wash area, non-denominational chapel, beauty salon and barber shop, and convenience store. Services include scheduled transportation, housekeeping, delicious dining, and lots more.

Assisted living offers individuals assistance with the activities of daily living — dressing, bathing, dining, medication management — while still offering every opportunity for maintaining independence.

Memory care provides a specialized atmosphere for residents coping with memory loss, Alzheimer’s, or other dementia-related disorders. Therapeutic activities and programs help maximize cognitive development, diminish anxiety, lessen confusion, and increase peace of mind.

Occasional memory lapses are common for individuals over age 65. However, people with dementia cannot retrieve information and, in most cases, lose the ability to remember. Dementia can be a variety of diagnoses, the most common of which is Alzheimer’s. This disease begins slowly, but over time, symptoms worsen.

A few factors to watch for: a senior who suddenly stops doing a longtime hobby, or withdraws. Sudden weight loss. Change in grooming habits. A house in disorder. An inability to follow conversations. If you suspect that your loved one’s memory loss is disrupting their daily routine, it could be time to seek medical advice.

A quality memory care program provides countless benefits such as safety, nutrition, and professional support. Activities and programs provide mental stimulation and interaction. Therapeutic tools such as music and art can awaken the senses and provide moments of personal success.
