At Riverside, we believe in offering residents choice in everything they do, whether taking part in activities or selecting menus.
Our lifestyle co-ordinators spend lots of time learning about your loved one’s hobbies and interests, so that we can offer activities that they will find fulfilling. We believe that people are happiest when they’re doing the activities or tasks they enjoy the most.
Enjoy a meaningful lifestyle
If your loved one gains a sense of purpose from helping around the home, then we will support them to do things like folding laundry, making their own drinks or helping in the garden. One of our residents enjoys washing up.
We also organise an impressive programme of activities, ranging from games with prizes to movie mornings, pamper sessions and cooking.
Our team at Riverside understands the importance of one-to-one time too, so we’ll spend time with your loved one doing whatever they would like. We treat everyone with dignity and respect, like members of our own family.
Looking and feeling good
Food plays a key part in social life at Riverside, and it’s vital for residents’ health too. Our chef-led kitchen team always ensures that there’s a good choice of dishes, and that each meal is nutritionally balanced. We provide modified diets if your loved one needs a soft or fortified diet, or has an allergy, and the chef works with the nursing team to ensure residents are receiving the nutrition and hydration they need.
We work closely with local GPs, district nurses, speech and language therapists and other healthcare professionals to ensure that your loved one always receives the seamless care they deserve. We regularly review each resident’s care and always let you know if there’s any change in your loved one’s health.
