The whole experience for my Mum since moving to Riverdale Care Home has been absolutely outstanding, she has settled in well to her new environment and is beyond happy.  Knowing she is relaxed and content is so reassuring for the rest of the family too. Everyone in the team displays a culture of professional care and kindness to all the residents to ensure their needs, likes and choices are met.Daughter of Resident, Riverdale Care Home

The accommodation is beautifully decorated making it feel like a home from home. It feels like a safe and well thought out environment where residents are comfortable and safe. I am proud to show both my extended family and my mums visiting friends around.Daughter of Resident, Riverdale Care Home

Daily activities are organised as an integral part of supporting the residents to stimulate their social, physical and mental well-being and is inclusive regardless of ability which helps reduce the feeling of loneliness. Residents are encouraged to join in and are provided just the right support that builds confidence. Nothing is ever too much trouble for the staff at Riverdale. Any request made to help and assist is always met with enthusiasm and a smile.  Daughter of Resident, Riverdale Care Home

We felt that we must write and express the depth and gratitude we all feel towards everyone. The level of care that D received during her time with you was outstanding. The staff on all floors, displayed understanding and dedication at all times. The same depth of compassionate care was shown in the days preceding D's death and at her passing she was treated with respect and kindness throughout. The family feel nothing but admiration for the Riverdale community. They have wrapped us all in a huge genuine hug of care and concern which has been much appreciated by us all at this difficult time.  Family members, Riverdale Care Home

I came here for respite only. After a period of three weeks, I came to the conclusion that I was better off here because I had no falls and my medical care was spot on. I have full support around my care and medication and I’m very happy in how this is provided. I feel relaxed, I don’t have to worry about anything here. I've had no hospital visits since my admission, this is because I receive great care and full support from the staff. All staff here are lovely and they all definitely kind. I love it here, everyone is down to earth. Management are very helpful and they help immediately. We have activities on a daily basis and I have a choice in everything. Resident.

Thank you and the wonderful team at Riverdale for your professional, intelligent and caring support that you are providing to our parents.  Our priority had always been to keep Mum and Dad together, in the same rooms, however, after seeing how well Dad looked today in a separate room and how he seemed far more engaged with and interested in his surroundings it really does seem a good idea to give Dad some time to himself and for him to hopefully re-discover and act on his own wants and needs.Daughter of resident, Riverdale Care Home
