 A ribbon cutting ceremony was held recently for the completion of The Memory Care Residence at RiverWoods, in Lewisburg. 

Lois Hunter, former RiverWoods employee and current resident, cut the ribbon. A special dedication was made by former president & CEO, Seneca Foote, in honor of Rev. Peter Geschwindner, chaplain at RiverWoods. Foote dedicated the Memory Care Garden to Geschwindner, a long-time employee of RiverWoods and Albright Care Services.

The Memory Care Residence will offer semi-private and private rooms with services aimed to help residents with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias.
