Welcome to Riverside - A specialist dementia, residential and short term respite care home in Barnsley.
My name is Sue Pickersgill and I am the Home Manager here at Riverside Care Home. I have worked in the care sector for the past 25 years, and I have been the Home Manager at Riverside since September 2018. We are located two miles north-east of Barnsley town in the village of Monk Bretton with local shops and amenities, with good transport links into the surrounding towns.
The home specialises in residential care for elderly residents with a wide range of needs, including dementia support and short term respite care.
We have a dedicated Activity Coordinator who organises a variety of activities for residents to enjoy which appeal to individuals interests and hobbies. We aim to provide as varied and engaging a lifestyle for our residents as possible, which includes regular exchanges with local community groups, such as visits from the nearby school.
