I visited my mother four times while she was in respite care. Each time staff were very welcoming and attentive offering tea on arrival. From my mother's comments, she was clearly very happy during her stay and was full of praise for the staff. I stayed for lunch on three occasions and each time the quality of the food and the conditions in which it was served was excellent. No hesitation in recommending this home.

Son of Riverdale Resident

My mother has just spent two weeks in respite care at Riverdale care home, Braintree and I cannot recommend it highly enough. I have had a previous poor care home experience which to Riverdale is just not comparable. The care my mother received has been of the highest quality. The staff were genuinely very kind and caring, treating her with dignity and spent a lot of time talking to her and constantly assessing her needs.

Daughter of Riverdale Resident

My time spent here was full of loving care from the staff and management. The surroundings are very homely and clean, and my room was very comfortable. I enjoyed all my meals here which were to a high standard. I had fun with the activities and it was great to learn new things. They made me feel like I was part of a family, and because of that I now return to see them regularly where I'm always welcomed.
