Types of Care provided
“My mum has been a resident in Riverdale Care Home in Chesterfield for just over a year now as she has Alzheimer's. I was very apprehensive about her going into a care home and wondered how or if she would settle. However, although she has her "ups and downs" she has settled as well as she possibly could and is as comfortable with the staff as she is her own family. All the staff treat her with kindness and care. They also seem a very stable and supportive team with a good manager who keeps family informed of any concerns. This review has been given during covid 19 and when I last spoke to the manager there were no cases in the home and the staff were pulling together and coping well. I am so thankful to all the care staff at Riverdale for their hard work, under what must be very difficult circumstances, and the care they give to my mum and all the residents, with skill, kindness and good humour.”

Meet the Manager
My name is Bethany Owen and I am the Registered Manager at Riverdale Care Home. I have been working with Orchard now for 10 years, I started as a Care Assistant and worked my way up within the company to a Registered Home Manager, which I have now been doing for 3 years.
My passion for care started when my Gran was diagnosed with Dementia which resulted in her being a resident in a different Orchard Care Home. This strengthened when my Grandad decided to join her in the care home due to him struggling to live on his own after 62 happy years of marriage.
