Welcome to Riverside Place

We can’t guarantee you’ll see Hammy the Hamster or any of the other characters, but you can live your very own Tales of the Riverbank at Riverside Place in Ware in Hertfordshire.

Set in beautiful landscaped gardens with river frontage onto the banks of the River Lea, this stunning luxury care home provides a pampered lifestyle within reach to enjoy the best in your retirement years. Voted ‘Best New Care Home’ in the prestigious Pinders Healthcare Design Awards in 2019, Riverside will impress at every turn.

With ensuite bedrooms, some of which have their own balconies, to the café, private dining room, cinema room, hair salon and barbers, activities and games room, to the exquisite top floor orangery and bar. Outside the landscaped gardens offers lovely views and spaces to relax and entertain visiting family and friends, or just to watch the birds and wildlife.

The highly trained care team are on hand around the clock to ensure that everyone’s individual needs and preferences are met, whether on a permanent, respite or convalescent care basis, for residential care, dementia care or nursing care.

All this and a daily programme of engaging activities, including trips out to explore the charming Ware town centre, and its priory, gardens, pubs, cafés and museum. Life is a true adventure at Riverside. Just don’t tell Hammy!

National Care Awards Winner

We are proud winners of the Large Care Home Group. Celebrating our commitment to excellence. We are looking forward to continuing with our goal to delivering compassionate and person-centred care.

Daily life at Riverside Place

At Aria Care, we take a genuine interest in you and the way you like spending your time. This means we can tailor your time with us and make sure it’s every bit as enjoyable as life has always been. With round-the-clock care and support, dining experiences and stimulating activities, you’ll soon be calling us “home”.

Keeping Things Personal

The welcoming surroundings at Riverside Place Care Home are matched by the high standard of individual care our colleagues provide to our residents. We love learning as much as we can about those whom we care for, so your loved one’s time is tailored to their individual needs, interests and preferences. This can be as small as knowing when they like to wake up, how they like their tea, and everything about their daily routine. Their life history enables us to connect with the life they want to live.

We support and encourage as much independence as possible, providing individual choice in such things as joining others in the dining room or in front of the TV for meals, or even with helping with daily life in our friendly community. We’ll also help them to personalise their own room with the things they love, so it truly is home-from-home.

Meet the Manager

Christine Daley is our Home Manager at Riverside Place Care Home, here’s a little bit more about the home in her own words:

“I lead my professional Care Team in delivering the highest level of care and support for our residents. My commitment to professional development has equipped me well for my role here, where I work hard to ensure that those in my care lead happy and fulfilling lives, whilst maintaining choice over the care and support they receive.

I believe in maintaining strong relationships with residents and their relatives, and understand the important contribution that these relationships make to the successful running of a care home.

I feel that the Aria Care philosophy matches up well with my own beliefs on care provision and I am committed to ensuring that all our residents continue to receive the high levels of care and protection they deserve.”
