The Story Behind Riverside Assisted Living In Alaska

Whether you’re a homesteader or a relative newbie to the Peninsula, you’re probably familiar with the Riverside House & Restaurant in Soldotna. Some would call it a landmark, having served thousands upon thousands of locals and guests alike since 1966. And if you grew up here, we’re sure that you remember a special birthday party, wedding reception, anniversary, graduation, dinner party or that “first date” at the Riverside Restaurant with the amazing view of the river.  So many great memories!

Well, as time would have it things deteriorate if not constantly maintained (especially in Alaska), and the poor old Riverside House & Restaurant had seen better days.  It was time for a change, time for a new purpose, time to breathe new life into a new tomorrow and allow the beauty of this wonderful location to be enjoyed by many to come.

So, in the spring of 2012, the bulldozers and the dump trucks rolled in and the old Riverside House and Restaurant was no more. In its place something new began to appear. Brick by brick and board by board, a majestic new edifice was taking shape. Not an ordinary building, but something special that would become a home to many of those same individuals who built this community and made it what it is today.

After 15 months of construction, sweat, and tears, we were pleased to announce the Grand Opening of Alaska’s premiere senior care community: Riverside Assisted Living in Soldotna. The building and all its amenities were brand new, but the spectacular scenery and the amazing view of the river is still the same!

Riverside Assisted Living in Alaska was conceived with one thing in mind, making your golden years fun, comfortable and carefree, in an elegant setting. Whether you are completely independent or needing significant assistance with ADL’s (Activities of Daily Living), our caring staff & experienced healthcare professionals are dedicated to your well-being. We spared no expense in our beautiful 33,000 sq ft building, to make you feel right at home, while receiving unparalleled care. Delicious meals, housekeeping/laundry, 24-hr staffing, medications management, access to a nurse, and assistance with bathing, dressing, grooming, and mobility.  We’ve got you covered.  You’ll enjoy stunning riverfront views from our patio and courtyard, spacious dining, living room and dance hall as well as from our activity room, theater and second floor atrium lounge.

And don’t forget a visit to our salon, spa, library, game and exercise rooms.  Musical pieces played on a baby grand piano and watching the fish in our 400 gallon aquarium are just a few things to keep you occupied at Riverside Assisted Living. Our newly added hobby farm and expansive greenhouse appeal to many of our residents.  However, it’s the relationships you create with our devoted staff and the other residents that make this place so special.
