“The residents at RiverWalk are my family. I am at that front desk to help them every day and with each task I assist them with, a huge burden is lifted from their shoulders. Making their days easier allows them to focus on what they enjoy, like going to a class or walking by the Hudson.”

REGINA WALLACE

Director

“We don’t have a staff, we have a family. It’s made up of the residents and employees, and each day, I am proud to say I am a part of that.”

KATHERINE MURPHY

Marketing Manager

“It’s not easy, moving from your home of 40 years. When I help each prospective resident get past that thought and realize RiverWalk is their new home, I know I’ve helped them to live a more independent, stimulating life.”

RICARDO PINEIRO

Building Services Supervisor

“When new residents come to RiverWalk, they worry about who will help them hang pictures, change the light bulb, or reach the top shelf. Many of them say having me around makes them feel more secure. It warms my heart.”
