At Rivermede Court we aim to be the number one choice for delivering expert, person-centered care within a luxury care home environment.
Our friendly team are on hand 24-hours a day offering round-the-clock support to residents seeking independent living, assisting with everyday tasks such as washing and dressing, personal care as well as ensuring medication is taken on time.
And in our dementia community our residents are supported by a superb care team who provide care that is meaningful, encouraging and recognises individuality.
Our luxury residential care home in Surrey is all about living a full and enriched life as independently as possible, with the reassurance of a dedicated team to provide support 24-hours a day.
Each move into Rivermede Court starts with getting to know the person, understanding their individual likes, and learning about their hobbies and interests. From here we produce an Individual Care Plan that is unique to each resident. This flexible plan provides a roadmap for defining the level of care and assistance needed, whilst preserving dignity and respecting each person’s individuality.
The Events and Activities team in our home keeps everybody mentally and physically engaged with meaningful activities throughout the day.
And our friendly care team is supported by a wider team of health professionals such as GPs, chiropodists, district nurses and dentists to ensure the wellbeing of all our residents.
The compassionate dementia care in our home is all about understanding each person’s unique character and personality, understanding the level of their dementia, and providing tailored care to suit their needs. This intimate approach involves family members, carers and residents themselves and is focused on getting to know the mental and social factors that trigger the symptoms of their dementia.
It also involves getting to know the ‘whole’ person, such as individual likes including favourite food and pastimes, personal interests and sharing memorable moments from the past.
From here we create a personal care plan that provides proactive support and encouragement through planned activities that provide a sense of meaning and accomplishment.

Our dedicated dementia community
Purpose-built dementia community care home
Our purpose-built dementia care home is specially designed to feel welcoming, safe and provide a sense of direction and self-motivation. It is a special place where everything is about creating a dementia friendly environment within a friendly community and supported by the very best care.
In our Sydney Oliver dementia community, each area features clear signage and subtle location markers to help residents identify where they are, and help with ‘way-finding’ around their home. Within the large, beautifully decorated lounge there is a library corner for residents to browse, a charming nursery corner, plus a rummage area featuring hats, coats and scarves to try on and relive memorable moments from the past.
Our dementia home
We work with external partners who are involved in the careful architecture, building and design of our care homes. To create the very best dementia friendly environments, all our partners participate in the latest dementia training to enable them to experience ‘virtually’ how it feels to live with dementia. This is then incorporated into the look and feel of our dementia care home.
At Rivermede Court our short-term respite care gives family members and carers an opportunity to take a break knowing their loved one is safe and cared for by an expert team. Our care plan is flexible and accommodating and suits individual needs with varying lengths of stay.
Our convalescence care team provide person-centered care that is compassionate and supportive, allowing you to recover in comfort with a wonderful resident community around you.
