Retirement communities were once considered places where folks spent the last chapter of their lives in a usually boring and restrictive environment.

That has changed.

Today’s senior communities such as RiverView Senior Resort in Palm Bay are all about writing exciting new chapters during retirement … and writing them just the way you want them.

Want to learn German? The residents of RiverView have a German Club. Brush up on your etiquette? Well, join the Ladies’ Etiquette Club. Perhaps you want to take up photography, now that you’re retired. You’re in luck, for the Photography Club is ready to help you hone your photographic skills.

Want to swim? Jump in, the swimming pool is heated. Enjoy a walk? Waterfront walkways invite contemplation. Do you want to give back to the community? The Projects with a Purpose Club can help you channel your inner volunteer. How about toasting life with a good brew? The OMC, or Old Men’s Club, at RiverView meets at locations such as Hell ‘n Blazes Brewery in Downtown Melbourne.

“When folks walk into RiverView, the are amazed by the life that is everywhere they look,” said Jacquie Esterline, director of community relations at RiverView.

“This is not assisted living as they have remembered.”

With a picture-perfect location that includes 3,000 feet of uninterrupted Indian River shoreline, RiverView invites and engages from the time you enter.

“Wow” is the first word often uttered when folks enter our building and see the spectacular view of the Indian River Lagoon before them,” Esterline said.

Soak up the view and the natural wonders of life in paradise or maybe catch the latest rocket launch from Kennedy Space Center from RiverView’s observation pier, but when you desire privacy, your spacious, attractive apartment, furnished the way you prefer, awaits.

“You can be as active as you want while knowing that if your needs ever change, you will have the help you need,” Esterline said.

If you ever need a little support with the activities of daily living, from housekeeping to bathing and dressing, RiverView staff is here to help with utmost respect for your dignity and independence. On-site physician and home health services complete the picture of total care for residents.

Convenience is an integral part of RiverView’s “wow” factors, for the community is five minutes from Interstate 95 and 10 minutes to the Orlando Melbourne International Airport. Should a medical emergency arise, Health First’s Palm Bay Hospital is three minutes away.

Life at RiverView is a perennial vacation where you enjoy gourmet meals, housekeeping service, activities and concierge services, manicured surroundings and round-the-clock security.
