“Currently, more fatalities are occurring in the general population of older adults over 85 years of age than in those living in nursing homes.”—McKnight’s Long Term Care News
“The data clearly tracks with the nationwide effort to prioritize nursing home residents for vaccinations. Case counts began to steeply decline as the Pfizer, and then the Moderna vaccines began to be distributed to nursing homes across the country on December 20, 2020. Nursing home case counts remain low, particularly when compared to infection rates among the general population, which have roared back in recent weeks,” -–McKnight’s Long Term Care News
“Today, new cases in American nursing homes are at their lowest point since May, when the federal government began tracking such data, the New York Times reports. Nursing homes are now among the safest places to be.”

CARE – COMPASSION – COMFORT
Welcome to River Ridge in the heart of Wynne, Arkansas. Whether you are looking for short-term rehabilitation or long-term care, you have come to the right place. Our highly skilled healthcare professionals – coupled with sophisticated therapies and high-tech treatments – deliver world-class care that is patient-centered and dedicated to achieving the best possible outcomes.
We recognize the importance of performing our jobs with compassion. Our elders often come to us during difficult and challenging times in their lives and deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. In fact, they become part of the family.
Finally, we provide comfort – physically, emotionally and spiritually – in a home-like setting for an enriched experience that improves the overall quality of life and promotes optimal healing.
I choose RRR for my wife, first because Dr. Burks, MD has been our PCP for many years and I knew with him and Laura Allen, NP seeing for her that she was in good hands medically. Second, we choose to stay at RRR because from day one, the staff showed their love, compassion, and dedication to my wife and my family. I see the staff go above and beyond to care for my wife. If there is a concern, it is taken care of as soon a possible.
The staff here are always there for me when I need them. Always a smiling face to make me laugh or smile. Also, I LOVE the food, activities, and friendships I have made.
I have been in LTC since 1973. I started as an orderly back when we could pass medications. From there, I was put in charge of maintenance, housekeeping, and laundry. Since RRR was built on the location it is now, I have worked in housekeeping, laundry, and remain as Maintenance Supervisor. The reason I continue to work is because this is my family. I care for the Elders and Staff and want to meet their need.
I love my job and taking care of others. I have worked here at RRR for many years and they are my extended family. I cannot imagine working anywhere else.
