  • Where you'll work
  • At Riverside we offer high quality care together with a warm welcome and lively atmosphere.

    Riverside is a modern, purpose-built care home located on the outskirts of Hyde in Cheshire. We provide support for older people, including specialist nursing and dementia care, and we also care for younger people in a separate unit within the home.

    Our highly skilled team has a great deal of experience in meeting the individual care needs of residents, including people with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. We work closely with residents and their families to create personalised care plans and develop engaging activities that promote independence and wellbeing.

    Residents and visitors enjoy the warm, welcoming and lively atmosphere we have here at Riverside. There’s always something going on that you can get involved in and there’s a great deal of interaction between residents and members of our team. We’re big believers in offering residents choice in all aspects of daily life too.

Care UK is committed to ensuring that it employs people with the right mix of talent, skills and potential and will assess every applicant fairly regardless of race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, responsibilities for dependents, age, physical/mental disability or offending background. Having a criminal record will not necessarily prevent you from working with us, it will depend on the nature of the role and background of any offence.
