Riverside provides general nursing for residents between the ages of 18-65 and look after a range of residents from full time to rehabilitation to enable them to return home.
The dementia nursing unit has a whole home approach and is committed to enabling residents to be as independent as possible; we have a rabbit “Benny” that our residents help to take care of.
Riverside has a strong management team with two deputy managers that offer full support to our nurses and are committed to develop our nurses by providing training. They also offer full support to all nurses when they are going through their PIN revalidation.
Where you'll work
At Riverside we offer high quality care together with a warm welcome and lively atmosphere.
Riverside is a modern, purpose-built care home located on the outskirts of Hyde in Cheshire. We provide support for older people, including specialist nursing and dementia care, and we also care for younger people in a separate unit within the home.
Our highly skilled team has a great deal of experience in meeting the individual care needs of residents, including people with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. We work closely with residents and their families to create personalised care plans and develop engaging activities that promote independence and wellbeing.
Residents and visitors enjoy the warm, welcoming and lively atmosphere we have here at Riverside. There’s always something going on that you can get involved in and there’s a great deal of interaction between residents and members of our team. We’re big believers in offering residents choice in all aspects of daily life too.
