River Terrace is Situated on 30 Scenic, Wooded Acres
Just minutes from the Timber Ridge Golf Club and steps away from native wooded trails and all the biking, trail walking and recreational opportunities on the Wabash River Greenway. This stunning acreage was graciously donated more than a decade ago by the late Dr. Charles Caylor and Mr. Ware Baker for the purpose of creating a not-for-profit retirement community for Bluffton and the areas surrounding Wells County. With our opening in 2003, their vision became a reality. Discover a new lifestyle - one full of activity and friendship, with plenty of time to do what you love. Discover a beautiful setting and enjoy it to its fullest, without nagging thoughts of housework or maintenance. Discover a place you can call home and find peace of mind, where expenses are controlled and medical care is available if you need it.
It is our goal to meet the needs of each resident while maintaining the privacy, dignity, and integrity of each resident. That's why our philosophy at River Terrace Retirement Community is "Residents First". This philosophy affects everything we do; from caring for our residents to the manner in which we conduct the business and operations of our company.
At River Terrace, we understand that no one looks forward to entering a skilled nursing facility, even if it is only for a short-term stay. The role of our Admissions Department is to assist families who need to find immediate placement for a loved one. Often a Discharge Planner or Social Worker at a hospital informs a patient’s primary contact of the need for short term rehabilitation or long-term care placement. Once this decision has been determined, families must quickly choose a facility.
We encourage families to tour and meet with our Admissions staff so they can see the facility first-hand and ask any questions they may have regarding this process. Once the family has chosen a facility, they inform the Discharge Planner or Social Worker of this decision. Next, the Discharge Planner or Social Worker will make an official referral to our facility. Our Social Worker or Nurse Manager, then, conducts an on-site assessment and notifies the referral source, the patient and the family of acceptance.
Admission to River Terrace will be based on the type of care needed, the environment most appropriate for the Resident, and the availability of the accommodations. We truly believe and insist that each Resident receives the best possible care at the least viable cost to the Resident in the most ethical manner, regardless of race, color, handicap, sex, creed, national origin, ancestry, sexual orientation, arrest or conviction status, marital status or religion.
We accept inquiries and admissions 24-hours a day and 7-days per week including holidays. We also welcome on-site tours at all times. At River Terrace, we will always strive to make this challenging transition as smooth as possible for everyone involved.
