For some people the most difficult part of growing old can be the sense of feeling lonely and isolated. As children grow up and move away, maybe with the loss of a spouse, sometimes circumstances lead to older people facing a situation where they lack quality and regular social interaction. Additionally, as we get older it can get harder to maintain friendships and social activities. Loneliness can sometimes be more detrimental to an individual’s well-being than even their physical weakness.

This is where River Garden Care can help. Our friendly carers are people that genuinely want to bring a smile to your face. We see it as an integral part of what we do to strive to fill any void in your social life. Even if you just want someone there to listen to you, to share your life stories and memories, we want you to feel comfortable and relaxed and talk to us as much you want.

We will always care for you with empathy and our mission is to build a relationship and friendship with you based upon trust and respect. We want every care visit you receive from us to end on a positive experience for you. Our desire is to cater for more than your physical needs, we want to support your emotional needs and work towards having a special place in your life and heart.

Sometimes it's just a familiar and friendly face that can make all the difference.

I just wanted to say how impressed I was to see how well your carers are looking after my Mum and supporting my Dad. I met C and S at lunch time and was impressed and relieved to observe their care and compassion

SR Bromley

I am writing just to say a very well done and congratulations on the excellent service you are providing. I met one of your caring staff at a shared client some days ago. I found her client interaction was exemplary and the happy relationship she has established with her clients is very evident. It was a pleasure to witness such excellent standards of care. I will highly recommend your agency to any that enquire.

CP Medical Response Team

Thank you for all the effort put in by your wonderful staff. I would be happy to recommend River Garden as an excellent care provider

I remember when we first met you put a lot of importance on the quality of your staff, certainly we would recommend C and K and River Garden. We would be happy to give you a reference

You and your team made (client) last days so much easier for my husband and I. (Client) really enjoyed the contact with the girls. I would certainly recommend your company

Can'’t fault your company, we have been so impressed. Compared to the other companies we have used, yours is by far the most professional

I want to personally thank M and yourself for so caringly looking after Mum. I would not hesitate to recommend to others the high standard and the sensitive care that you provided

Thank you for all your help, it’s carers like K and M that are needed very much and give the profession a good name.
