Staff And Training
Staff and training at Rivers Edge are crucial to our company. We focus on making sure our team is fully trained in helping our residents so that our residents can have their best possible experience. When hired, our employees go through training to best assure family members will be in great hands. Being a family-owned and operated business, we know the importance of keeping a family safe. Our goal and values center around just that.
As a company, we offer different growth opportunities for our employees. From job shadowing for beginners to extensive training to keep them up-to-date and knowledgeable on different health codes, we help them gain a deeper understanding of our residents in their needs and preferences.
