The Importance Of Meal Times

Our catering team prides themselves on preparing nutritious, seasonal home-cooked meals, along with mouth-watering home-baked cakes for afternoon tea.

Residents help us to shape the menus and our catering team spends time with them to get feedback on the dishes and their likes and dislikes. They are also able to cater for a variety of dietary requirements.

Breakfast includes a wide variety of choice from cereals and toast to a traditional cooked breakfast.

Lunch and dinnertimes see a selection of sandwiches, homemade soups, salads, jacket potatoes and hot meals such as a Sunday roast with all the trimmings and favourites including fish and chips, cottage pie and a hearty casserole.

There is also an array of snacks and refreshments available throughout the day for residents and their loved ones if they get a bit peckish.

Activities Are So Important

Our activities room is where we host all of our group activities, bringing everyone together in a social setting. We even have our own karaoke machine, so the room is often filled with laughter, singing and even dancing – and it’s big enough for residents and loved ones to join in the fun.

From quizzes, bingo and painting to baking and enjoying performances with live entertainers from across Greenwich. We still provide stimulating activities elsewhere in the care home, but it’s so nice for our residents to have a central place away from their day-to-day living areas to socialise.

For our residents with greater nursing needs, we can provide one-to-one activities in the comfort of their own bedrooms; whether enjoying a hand massage, sitting with staff to read their favourite book or catch up on the daily news. When we host animal therapy sessions in the activity room, these sessions can always be brought to a resident’s bedside. Our residential and nursing home is fully inclusive, and that’s the way it should be.

We pride ourselves on supporting and empowering our residents to be part of their local Greenwich community, meeting new people and seeing fresh faces in their home. Sometimes before they move here they may have been quite isolated in their own homes. We support them to have active social lives and enjoy new and exciting activities with friends. The home’s larger celebrations, like Silver Sunday, summer fetes and barbecues, are often open to the local community, enabling them to stay connected.

At Riverlee we have a fantastic group of volunteers, who dedicate their spare time to the home. And there are regular visits from school children across Greenwich to look forward to. Spending time with the younger generation is something that is so beneficial for many of our residents’ well-being. As you can imagine, their faces light up as soon as they hear the laughter of youngsters in the home.

There is plenty going on outside the residential and nursing home that our residents like to explore in London, with museums, garden centres and Greenwich Park. In the warmer months we go further afield, enjoying an ice-cream at the seaside.
