Here at the Riverside adult nursing service unit we care for men and women aged between 18 and 65 with a wide range of nursing needs.
The people we care for may have acquired brain injuries, learning difficulties, young onset – as well as other forms of – dementia, or physical disabilities including Multiple Sclerosis. However, we see the person, not their condition, so we provide each individual with care that is entirely tailored to their personality, abilities, needs and interests.
Where to find us
The Riverside adult nursing service unit is based on the ground floor of the Riverside care home between Hyde and Denton in Cheshire. The unit is divided into two areas , Shelley and Brontë, which occupy half of the Riverside care home’s 90 beds.
How long do people stay at the Riverside unit?
Our residents tend to be from the local area and referred to us by social services. How long they’re with us varies enormously – there’s no maximum length of stay.
A resident might need rehabilitation and help to move on into supported living or independent living. They might join us for a respite break: we have quite a lot of ‘regulars’ who do that in order to give their family carers some time off. Other residents live here permanently.
We understand that families appreciate flexibility, so we are happy to work on a rolling basis, caring for someone on a week-by-week basis, according to what they and their family needs.
To find out more about what we do and how we can help you care for a loved one, please call us or send us a message. We look forward to meeting you soon.
