Riverdale is a luxurious home, equipped to offer residents the complete care package. Riverdale is built according to dementia care best practice; a central circular corridor provides a continuous path around a secure sensory courtyard. All areas of the home reflect a homely, calming environment for our residents, drawing inspiration from our beautiful surroundings.
If you are compassionate and caring, if you’re not afraid of hard work, and if you enjoy making a difference to people’s quality of life, you might just be the person we’re looking for.
We are currently recruiting for Healthcare Assistants, ranging from those who are new to care to those who are experienced carers, who will be expected to participate as a member of the care team to plan, lead, monitor and deliver high quality care to residents in line with their individual care plans, under the supervision and guidance of the Nurse-in-Charge.
You will be expected to provide holistic care for our elderly residents, assisting them with their daily activities and identifying and assisting them with their individual needs and preferences.

We’ll build your confidence, identify your strengths and back you if you want to aim high.
