Riverside Care Centre

Riverside is a small residential home for men and women with a learning disability or mental health problem.

We provide 24-hour care covering specialist support and general assistance with everyday living, and we ensure that the dignity, individuality and privacy of everyone at the centre is always maintained.

Each of our three houses has space for eight people, and each house has its own dedicated team and senior support workers.
Situated in quiet, pleasant Kingswinford, in the West Midlands, our centre has easy access to the towns of Dudley and West Bromwich.

"People were supported in a friendly environment that was warm and nice. Staff were caring and kind towards people." (CQC, February 2017)

Care at Riverside Care Centre

Residential care

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.

General care

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.

Who we treat

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.
