Riverlee is an attractive care home located in a quiet residential area in the district of Greenwich, London.

A 10-minute drive from Greenwich Millennium Village, our care home is close to shops, restaurants, a theatre, Greenwich Park and other attractions.

Our dedicated team provides a range of care and support for our residents, including residential care, dementia care, nursing care, palliative care and respite care.

Our care home has been designed with the usual comforts you’d expect such as welcoming lounge and dining areas and cosy bedrooms, which provide a warm place for our residents to rest and relax.

The care home also features its own pub – ‘The Quaggy’, a sensory garden, activity room and a hairdressing salon.

However it’s the small personal touches and our friendly team, who care for our residents as if they were members of their own family, which make Riverlee a true home from home.

We welcome visits from family and friends and have an open door policy, so whether loved ones like to pop in for a coffee or take part in an activity, we encourage them to become part of the community within our home.

We hold meetings for residents and relatives, enabling our residents and their loved ones to be directly involved in everyday life at Riverlee.

Accommodation

Our spacious 75 bedrooms all have en-suites, as well as television points.

Bedrooms are tastefully decorated and furnished, although we do encourage our residents to bring personal ornaments, pictures and small items of furniture to make their rooms their own.

We have several lounge and dining areas for our residents to use as they wish, whether catching up with friends and family or simply reading a good book. Residents also enjoy taking part in fun activities and rekindling old past times in the comfort of the care home’s activity room.

Complete with optics and pumps, Riverlee also has its very own pub ‘The Quaggy’, which is the perfect place for socialising.

Our dining areas, which are located on every floor of the home, provide a welcoming atmosphere to enjoy delicious home-cooked meals in the company of others.

The sensory gardens are landscaped with raised flower beds for our residents who like to do a spot of light gardening and also include seating areas for relaxing afternoons in the sunshine.

  • Spacious en-suite bedrooms, with television points
  • Several welcoming lounge areas and an activity room
  • A pub – ‘The Quaggy’
  • Dining areas where our residents enjoy home-cooked meals

Our team

Our care team is on-hand 24 hours a day, every day of the year and staff are dedicated to delivering care with kindness.

To ensure we continue to provide the best standards of care and support to our residents, we recruit and train only the best staff.

Whilst they receive a variety of on-going training to ensure their skills remain up-to-date, along with an enhanced DBS check (formerly CRB), it is their dedication to our residents which makes them truly special.

Activities

We believe it is important that our residents spend their time as they choose, so have a dedicated activities person to support them to take part in interesting activities, rekindle old past times and try new things.

We have a hairdressing salon and our residents also enjoy being pampered with manicures and hand massages.

Regular activities on offer include everything from sensory activities, painting, bingo, arts and crafts, dancing, quizzes, live music entertainment, as well as themed community events throughout the year such as summer fetes and Christmas fairs.

Our residents also take part in day trips to museums, garden and shopping centres and Greenwich Park.

Care and Support

We pride ourselves on treating people as individuals, so all our residents have care plans tailored to their individual medical, social and emotional needs. We review care plans on a regular basis and involve family and friends in this process wherever possible.

The range of personal care services we can provide, in partnership with local professionals, include:

  • ​Chiropody
  • Hairdressing
  • Optical care
  • Dental care
  • GP
  • Key worker

Home-cooked meals

Our catering team prides themselves on preparing nutritious, seasonal home-cooked meals, along with mouth-watering home-baked cakes for afternoon tea.

Residents help us to shape the menus and our catering team spends time with them to get feedback on the dishes and their likes and dislikes. They are also able to cater for a variety of dietary requirements.

Breakfast includes a wide variety of choice from cereals and toast to a traditional cooked breakfast.

Lunch and dinnertimes see a selection of sandwiches, homemade soups, salads, jacket potatoes and hot meals such as a Sunday roast with all the trimmings and favourites including fish and chips, cottage pie and a hearty casserole.

There is also an array of snacks and refreshments available throughout the day for residents and their loved ones if they get a bit peckish.
