Westgate Healthcare’s Riverdale Care Home in Braintree, Essex has added nursing care to its current services, which include residential, dementia and respite care.
The addition of nursing care has enhanced the current care packages for new and existing residents, making Riverdale a ‘home for life’.
Sita Foxton, Director at Westgate Healthcare, said: “We are delighted to broaden our service offering at Riverdale Care home to include nursing care. This will enable us to offer our residents a home for life and to better serve the needs of the community.”
A 24-hour nursing service means Riverdale Care Home now offers in-house palliative care, treatment of disease, disorder and injury for their residents, so that it can respond immediately to sudden changes in health to ensure the best possible outcomes for residents.
In addition, the home has recently expanded its dementia unit to meet the rise in demand for residential dementia care services. Residents living with dementia can now access the ‘Treetops Suite’ on the second floor of the home delivering panoramic views of Braintree and the River Brain from their windows and a generous dining living space with a widescreen television and comfortable furnishings.
