Riverview Retirement Community
Spokane, WA - Assisted Living, Nursing Home, Independent Living, CCRC
Riverview Retirement Community's 32-acre campus is ready and waiting for you to visit. As one of only four continuing care retirement communities in Spokane, often people find their place at Riverview first in our independent living homes. However, your needs may change over time. Many of our residents transition to our assisted living or skilled nursing options so they can access more help but remain close to nurture the friendships they've built here. At Riverview, we're not about retirement, but re-vitalization. We provide more than a place to live. We provide a place to meet friends and fulfill promises you've made yourself your entire life.
