A river runs through it

Trilogy Health Services has completed a “trilogy” of its own by adding the North River Health Campus to its community in Evansville, IN, that also features River Pointe Health Campus and West River Health Campus.

Currently, the North River campus can house 97 residents, and with the opening of 30 Independent Living Villa Patio Homes, Trilogy offers customers a complete array of services to the city on the banks of the Ohio River, including assisted living, long-term care, short-term rehab, transitional care, respite and adult day services.

Specialized memory care services also are offered at West River Health Campus in its freestanding Legacy neighborhood.

The North River community follows the senior care provider’s village center prototype. Rooms are clustered into neighborhoods, with short hallways and access to North River’s amenities, which include several common areas, a beauty salon, Ritzy’s ice cream parlor, computer lab and multiple courtyards with covered porches.

These rooms surround the heart of the campus, which is marked by a central dining room below a windowed pergola.

The design scheme is contemporary, striving for a sophisticated, comfortable atmosphere. The campus features an open floor plan with a large centralized area for residents to congregate and socialize.

Since Trilogy’s acquisition of River Pointe Health Campus in 2003 and opening of West River Health Campus in 2010, CEO Randall Bufford says the North River Health Campus completes the organization’s vision of providing services that encompass the entire eldercare continuum for citizens of Vanderburgh County.

“We provide care options for all levels of healthcare, and the needs and preferences of our residents are our top priority,” he says. “We are proud to have North River Health Campus join our other campuses in Evansville.”

The culture and décor at North River are focused on the local area — dining choices contain local flavors, hallways hold the names of local landmarks and residents are encouraged to decorate their rooms with their favorite pieces from home.

Residents have their pick of both private suites and companion suites in either the health center or assisted living neighborhoods.

Each room comes fully furnished or residents can bring in their own furniture and decorations to personalize their space.

A private bath is also available in each room, and assisted living suites include a kitchenette.

North River also offers Trilogy’s Home Again short-term rehabilitation program in a state-of-the-art therapy gym.

This program features a full range of medical and rehabilitation services, including physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech language pathology. Therapists at North River work directly with residents’ physicians to create individualized therapy programs.
