Sevenoaks Care Home

Rivermere Care Home in Sevenoaks was taken over by Avery Healthcare at the start of 2017, and we quickly set about transforming the fortunes of this splendid residential care home, bringing Rivermere into line with our exemplary standards and overarching care philosophy. It is this approach that has won us four national care awards in 2018 and the respect of many within the care sector.

Rivermere enjoys a pleasant situation close to the town of Sevenoaks, right next to Chipstead Lakes, on the edge of the Kent Weald, and easily accessible from both the M25 and M26. The home itself, surrounded by mature trees and garden offers an opulent feel and a care environment where staff are dedicated to the holistic well-being of the residents

We realise that moving in to a new home is a big step and at Rivermere we treat all our residents with the dignity and respect they deserve and give them every opportunity to keep up with their interests, their connections with the local Sevenoaks community as well as their passions in life.

All bedrooms are light and roomy and have an en-suite wet room; residents are encouraged to personalise their rooms as they please. For the more independently minded there are some apartments too with kitchenettes, and a living room, that are ideal for couples. A spacious atrium with feature chandelier and sweeping staircase leads on to an open-plan area which includes a bistro cum cafe, bar, and activity lounge. Here is where most of our residents like to congregate.

The second floor is dedicated to dementia care with its own dining room, lounges and activity area leading onto a spacious and safe patio area. On the ground floor there is a dining room, and hair and beauty salon, and on the first floor a lounge, where small groups or clubs can meet, as well as a cinema room.

Care in Sevenoaks: From Pumpkins to Pilates

Life at Rivermere Care Home Sevenoaks is guided by our residents who relish all the activities and events we put on for them as well as pursuing their own interests. This could be:

  • Walking for charities
  • Patting a Shetland pony or a snake
  • Practising Pilates
  • Painting
  • Yoga and meditation

Minds and bodies are kept active with daily quizzes and crosswords, listening to speakers on the history of teapots, conservation or the local history of Sevenoaks, with musical exercise, a game of croquet, or gardening. The words that find their way on to the giant Scrabble board are often a talking point and the keen Scrabble teams like pitting their wits in tournaments against other neighbouring homes. An active gardening club enjoys growing flowers and vegetables in the raised beds.

Everyone pulls together to make our open days and fetes great successes. Residents are happy to contribute to the wider community by raising money for the Alzheimer’s Society and local charities. They also appreciate a wide variety of musical entertainment from harp music, to jazz and Elvis Presley and like to participate in the special themed events we put on. Tea at the Ritz is the next one, very best dresses and suits for that one, then!

As we have our own minibus, we often get out and about. You will often see us enjoying the sites of nearby Sevenoaks or further afield around Kent. We are spoilt for choice in the abundance of nearby castles and gardens, but the seaside, garden centres and the theatre also prove popular places to visit.

We encourage friends and families to be as connected as they would like to be, and we invite them to our regular councils. The more the communication, the better the care and attention. Our families play an active part in home life, its a real feature of our approach to assisted living in Sevenoaks.

Eat In Or Take Away?

You are what you eat and at Rivermere and we take food seriously, while making meal times fun and enjoyable occasions for our diners. There is always a wide variety of nutritional choices at all three meals of the day, which are cooked on the premises, from fresh and seasonal ingredients whenever possible. We like to source our food from local Sevenoaks suppliers and producers, that way its freshness is guaranteed.

We like to mark special days – haggis on Burns Night, lots of green food for St Patrick’s Day, home-grown pumpkin pie at Hallowe’en, for instance. And once a month residents organise takeaways which they enjoy on their laps with a good film on the screen.

Throughout the day a range of freshly baked cakes and pastries, savoury snacks, fruit and drinks are available. Birthdays and anniversaries deserve special attention and our team enjoys making cakes and treats for those days, when relatives are more than welcome. There is a private dining room as well, if you want to have friends and family to yourself.
