In 1986 Riverside Senior Living welcomed our first resident in Decatur’s downtown historical district...
Spacious apartments overlook the Tennessee River to the east while a picturesque courtyard with a soothing and peaceful fountain, elegant gardens and wrought iron furniture catch the view of our interior apartments. It is not unusual to spot a hot air balloon launching from Rhodes Ferry Park just a few footsteps from Riverside, or the magnificent Delta Queen tied up for a day trip in Decatur. From late May until early September outdoor concerts fill the park on Monday nights and weddings take place on the lawn during the spring, summer and fall. Riverside is a busy, healthy, happy place to call home. Our campus is locally owned and operated by residents of Decatur who have chosen Riverside as a home for their parents. On any given day, you will spot the owners tending to the grounds, visiting the residents and sharing a pleasant memory with families and friends.
Home Sweet Home!
