Care

Care is the primary objective of Rivendale Resort, and residents' necessities are attended to by the entire staff, spearheaded by the Directors who are resident within the premises. They endeavour to provide all assistance to ensure that residents lead a healthy, relaxed lifestyle in a friendly environment.

doctor Regular medical services


Rivendale has a doctor visiting on a regular basis, and our resident staff includes a fully qualified nursing sister. We keep track of each resident’s health condition, and medical records are maintained. Our staff are ever mindful of residents’ general health and dietary habits, and ensure that medication is taken properly at the correct time.

We have observed that most of our residents have been able to reduce their medicine intake almost by half, possibly due to the regular mealtimes, care given by our competent staff, and the serene atmosphere.

The medicines required are purchased by the management at no additional cost, and are included in the monthly invoice.

around-the-clock careAround-the-clock care


At Rivendale Resort, we understand that each person's physical capabilities reduce with age. For residents who need support to perform their basic ablutions, Rivendale Resort provides full-time attendants who sleeps in the room and provides support for all needs. The attendants are trained to make the residents as comfortable as possible, and to ensure that they are well looked after around the clock.

In emergencies, medical attention is only a phone call away. Our emergency care usually arrives within 30 minutes in an ambulance, with a doctor and staff ready to handle any emergency. When necessary the ambulance will transfer the resident to a private hospital, and Rivendale Resort ensures that the resident is taken care of while the guardians are informed.
