River Bend assisted living community receives award

River Bend assisted living by Americare recently received an award for community services, during the company’s recent virtual awards ceremony. River Bend, located in Great Bend, was selected from Americare’s 86 assisted living communities to receive the award based on exemplary quality in the area of community services.

The recognition is one of four philosophy awards which reflect the four priorities of the company: service to residents, service to the employees, service to the community, and fiscal responsibility.

According to Jamie Peters, administrator of River Bend, the award belongs to the entire team at the community. “We’re so proud to be recognized in this way,” Peters stated. “Americare is a top-notch organization with high standards in every area. We were compared to many other excellent communities and came out on top. That means a lot.”

The community was evaluated using specific criteria including state survey results, resident/family survey results and other quality indicators. Awards are given annually each spring and reflect a community’s performance during the prior 12 months.  

“The company considers a nomination in any one category quite an achievement,” said Americare President Clay Crosson. “The community that actually wins the award is simply the best of the best and truly reflects quality that has made Americare a trusted name in eldercare services.”

River Bend, located at 3820 Broadway Ave., is a 40-bed assisted living community licensed by the state of Kansas.
