River Bend Assisted Living by Americare was awarded the Gold level of the company’s Honor Club for 2016 at Americare’s recent annual meeting in Charelston, S.C. Communities with Honor Club distinction meet very narrow award criteria in each of the four philosophy areas: resident service, employee service, community service and fiscal responsibility. These communities are seen as the company’s “best of the best.” The Executive Director and Director of Nursing from Honor Club communities participate on a corporate advisory committee that researches new technologies and quality improvement initiatives. Honor Club membership runs April to April each year. Only eight of our 104 Assisted Living communities were awarded as Gold Honor Club members for 2016.
“Our Honor Club achievement is the result of a team effort,” comments Jamie Peters, Executive Director. “It belongs to the entire staff.  Each day we work hard to deliver person-centered care and to operate in a way that is true to Americare’s philosophy. We are very proud to have been recognized for our efforts. This is a very prestigious honor,” she finishes.
River Bend Assisted Living is located at 3820 Broadway Ave, Great Bend. It is licensed by the State of Kansas.
