Our Community Focus

Conveniently located in the historic, lush surroundings of Prospect, KY a suburb of Louisville— just minutes from the Gene Snyder Freeway, Waterson Expressway and I-71, River’s Edge Nursing and Rehabilitation Center has served the community for over 20 years. Our property is adjacent to Hay Kennedy Community Park, on the banks of the Ohio River surrounded by large oak trees and a pristine nature reserve.

Our quiet, nurturing home-like environment is staffed with a kind and caring team that treats every resident like family. We believe in personal connections and knowing everyone on a first name basis. We believe in providing care and kindness living by the ‘Golden Rule’— Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. We believe each resident is unique, bringing their own life experience, likes/dislikes, and personalized needs.

Our consistent quality star rating from third parties is another testament to our level of care. Residents and their families and loved ones have peace of mind knowing that we are available to help with all daily tasks such as personal hygiene, medication needs, cooking, cleaning, and transportation as well as a large array of skilled nursing and medical support services.

State of the Art Safety

Safety is a Top Priority

We have multiple prevention methods for the spread of COVID-19 and other viruses. These include routine electrostatic cleaning, needlepoint bipolar ionization (cold plasma), HEPA air scrubbers, and MERV 13 air filter installation. Cold plasma has been shown to kill multiple bacteria, viruses and mold spores, and recent studies have demonstrated a significant reduction of COVID-19 virus when installed.

Partnering With Industry Experts

We developed and implemented industry-leading protocols to help prevent the spread of disease. We partnered with university and community-based epidemiology clinical experts, the North Carolina Statewide Program for Infection Control and Epidemiology (SPICE), while following state and CDC guidance.

Some of Our Additional Safety Measures Include:


Following all guidance and requirements for state and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid (CMS) to ensure optimal patient, family and staff safety


Residents are monitored and screened regularly


Teammates and guests wear masks throughout their shifts/visits when required


Daily Activities

When residents have an engaging social life, they’re able to live more comfortably and productively. Activities give structure which provides them certainty in knowing what’s coming up next; time goes by faster and increases a sense of purpose. There’s also something comforting about having people around who care enough to make your days a little more interesting.

Kind Words

When my dad called to say he fell and was in the hospital it quickly became apparent that he could no longer take care of himself. After talking with several nursing homes in the area, I decided River’s Edge was the best. The location is in a quiet residential area with a park nearby. When registering my dad, staff made us feel welcome and answered all our questions and made sure they knew who my dad was, his hobbies, his interests, his life history and experiences. I see first-hand the staff’s dedication and hard work to meet residents’ needs. They do an extraordinary job.
