Our Reconnect Community!

Riverdale Care Home in Chesterfield has its very own Reconnect Community, offering specialist care for people living with dementia.

Designed to help residents remain as independent as possible, our Reconnect communities include everything you'd typically find in your home; such as laundry rooms, kitchens and cosy living rooms. We've also included areas entirely dedicated to hobbies like painting, sewing, gardening and DIY, so residents can continue enjoying their interests in a safe and friendly environment.

With a team of dementia-specialist colleagues already in place, residents staying in our Reconnect Community are supported with their physical, mental and emotional needs, including medication distribution, pain management and general wellbeing. Our Reconnect community within Riverdale Care Home has a higher ratio of carers, nurses and support workers; all of which have training in dementia care. As part of our Dementia Promise, colleagues receive extensive guidance in care for all types of dementia, includes vascular-dementia and Alzheimer's disease.
