Determining the right services for you or your loved one can be overwhelming. We are here to help. Here at Riverside, we are a team. Regardless of age, ability or diagnosis, we work with each person to help them navigate life and achieve their goals. There are no cookie cutter approaches.
With the support of local tax levies approved by Miami County voters, as well as state and federal dollars, we directly provide service coordination, advocacy training, Early Intervention and recreation activities. We also fund adult day services, in-home care and job training through our network of service providers.
