Luxurious and homely, Riverdale is perfectly equipped to offer residents the complete care package. Overlooking the River Brain, the home is set in natural and tranquil surroundings. Riverdale is also built according to dementia care best practice; a central circular corridor provides a continuous path around a secure sensory courtyard, catering for all of our residents.

We have something for everyone at Riverdale - a Café and traditional pub area for catching up with friends and family, a potting shed for keen gardeners, hair salon and spa for when some pampering is in order as well as many more amenities to enjoy. All areas of the home provide a calming environment for our residents, drawing inspiration from our beautiful surroundings.

I find the care given to my husband is very good. There always seems to be something going on for the residents and it is nice to hear it when I am visiting daily. The home is very clean and smells good compared to other homes I have visited in the past. I have recommended St Pauls Care Centre to others in the past as I feel it meets all the requirements we have.

My husband hates respite but managed to survive two weeks! The woman who ran the floor was brilliant and they made sure he was in the lounge everyday. There was an "entertainer" singing, talking etc- most of the time and there always seemed to be sufficient staff around. In a lot of homes the staff ratios appear too low, the staff were pro-active and very helpful to me. Am considering getting him back for another break if they have room. Two of the biggest problems are lack of respite places and inability to book in advance.

The home is welcoming, bright and airy. All newly decorated with attractive and purposeful displays on the walls. Furniture new and clean and environment pleasant without any odours. The staff are without a doubt dedicated, caring and giving, above a good standard. They made a big difference socially to my father, as he was bedbound and would rely on company visiting his room. The standard of nursing care at the home made my fathers last 18 months as comfortable and happy as possible. The family would like to Thank you all!
