A care home with a friendly, relaxed homely feel. The carers are gentle and treat the residents with respect. They spend time with the individual residents and you can see that the residents like and trust the staff.
The home has a very happy atmosphere which is not always the case in residential homes. I would definitely recommend it.

When I went to visit a member of my congregation I was most impressed by the atmosphere and care I witnessed. The word "Home" accurately describes Riverside.
Carers know residents well, treat them as individuals and respond not only to their needs but also their interests, attitudes and humour.
They clearly had a good deal of choice over the meal they got at tea time reflecting a genuine response to personal preferences.

Riverside Court is a very friendly care home with a calm and caring atmosphere. The staff are very kind and try hard to make everyone feel they are at home there. They put on stimulating events in the afternoon for entertainment. It is small, giving it a more homely feel and I am very pleased and content that my mother is well cared for.

My mum spent her last four years at the home and I couldn't be more pleased that she was here. The staff were truly excellent, so very caring and always happy to help. Mum was very happy with her beautiful room overlooking the lovely gardens and river. At the end of her life, a hospital bed was delivered to the home and she was so very well cared for. The night staff were truly excellent as I and my sister were able to stay in the room with her. When Mum finally died the staff, with so much dignity, washed and changed her. I stayed and could see how much care and consideration they gave her. When my mum was laying peacefully we ) were able to stay by her till the funeral directors arrived. I cannot stress how wonderful Mums end of life was.

The care and attention provided by the staff was exceptional, professional and ensures her dignity until her death.
At all times the staff were extremely helpful, understanding and considerate to her wishes and to all members of her family.
Despite the complexity and variety of people they care for, they always managed to remain cheerful and spend time with our Mum who really enjoyed her time in the home and the staff became a part of her extended family.
Cannot thank the staff enough they were just amazing and caring people.

Riverside Court provide a warm homely environment. The residents receive an excellent level of care from the dedicated management and staff team. the management and team do their up most to assist both residents and their relatives. Ehen identifying a care home for my mother Riverside Court was my clear choice. I would not want my mother to reside anywhere else.

Boroughbridge Residential Home Is a Shining Example' I am writing to express my observations and feelings on, Riverside Court. My mother spent the last eight months of her life there. Speaking as a trained nurse and midwife and having worked extensively in several nursing homes I would have been quick to criticise should the need arise. On the contrary I cannot fault the way in which my mother was dealt with. Staff were unfailingly good to her, mixing compassion with common sense. The owners are 'hands on' and of course the impetus on the rest of the staff comes from them.
