Each of our three houses has space for eight people, and each house has its own dedicated team and senior support workers.

We make a careful assessment of a resident's needs before they join us at Riverside. We talk to the resident and, where possible, the family to draw up a care plan.
We encourage our residents to develop their strengths and skills to give them greater independence and a sense of fulfilment.
During your stay with us we will make sure that you see a GP regularly for any ongoing conditions and we will access additional healthcare services when needed.
We care and support adults with a learning disability such as Asperger's syndrome or Autistic Spectrum disorders. We also look after adults with mental health conditions such as bipolar and personality disorders. We can also provide care for adults with early onset dementia.
I just wanted to let you know we visited yesterday and am very pleased with how he is. He ate perfectly and was in a good mood... Thank you to the whole team who care for him.
Caring at Riverside
Our residents are encouraged to participate in making their plans of care and support, and the involvement of family and friends is greatly valued. Visits from friends and family are encouraged, as are hobbies, interests and social interaction, inside and outside the centre.
Our manager, Kelly Cox, leads a team of caring, experienced and dedicated carers and support workers. With a focus on physical, mental and emotional wellbeing, they also provide support in self-care, living skills and social needs. Special attention is also paid to continuing physical and mental healthcare needs, where psychiatry, psychology, speech and language therapy, occupational therapy and physiotherapy can be provided by the local community teams.
