Review of Riverside Care Centre

My aunt has been a resident here for many years. She is suffering from dementia. At all times I have found management and staff to be both professional and very caring. Residents are treated with dignity, sometimes in very difficult circumstances. Visitors are always welcomed warmly. Activities are well planned and provide a variety of experiences. Relatives are always informed sensitively if a medical problem occurs. I can recommend this care home with absolute confidence. The staff do a wonderful job.

Review of Riverside Care Centre

I have been very satisfied with the care provided for my mother. The staff are very kind and friendly and treat all the residents with dignity. It must be so difficult to manage any activities with dementia patients but Ann Robinson does an excellent job. Always something happening and family are welcome and included.

Review of Riverside Care Centre

Kevin's illness restricts him from joining in with any activities although there is a varied programme in the home. He receives excellent 24 hour care at Riverside Care Centre. Over the 2 years I have built up a good relationship with members of the staff and they are all caring, not just for Kevin but to myself and the members of my family. I cant thank them enough.

Review of Riverside Care Centre

When it was decided my mother had to go into care because of dementia I was apprehensive. I found this home and am extremely glad that I did. She is now well looked after and has her hair done regularly. The staff are very approachable and there are no adverse comments I can make about them or the home. They should continue with their good work. I would recommend the home to anyone whose relatives need good care
