My mother has just recently left Riverview due to her needing a nursing home to meet her needs. I can honestly say mum was treated with the utmost respect and dignity at all times. We were able to spend Christmas lunch with mum which was lovely. Could go and visit mum whenever we wanted, anytime day or night and was always made to feel welcome. Mum was always made to feel at home. It was ensured that mum's dietery needs were met, which was very important to us as a family.
