Rivington View Nursing Home was entirely purpose built with one aim only - to provide the most excellent standards of nursing care in surroundings of absolute luxury, to those in need - the elderly and the infirm, for short or long term care.
There are two spacious, well-equipped and comfortable lounges one on each floor - one fitted with a colour television and another lounge for those who prefer a quiet room maybe to read, or chat with friends and relatives. All bedrooms, toilets and bathrooms are filled with 'Nurse Call' buttons to call immediate attention when necessary. There are five bathrooms, some assisted baths and one with the state of the art Arjobath system which can be raised and lowered hydraulically to receive a resident from an Ambuilift into the bath without manual effort, to provide total comfort for all residents including the disabled and convalescent.
All residents are free to have a General Practitioner of their own choice. Our Care Manager will be happy to provide a list of all the General Practitioners in the Horwich area, to the residents on request. 24 hour medical cover is available to all the residents in need of a Doctor. There is a special Medical Room for anyone to consult a Doctor in strict privacy.
As fully qualified nursing staff are on duty round the clock, there is no longer the need for residents to worry about remembering their medication. Out staff make sure that each one takes the prescribed medication at the correct time.
Our fully qualified cooks pay particular attention to the nutritional needs of our residents and their special dietary requirements, offering a choice of menu. Food is prepared in our own specially equipped kitchen under the most hygienic conditions, using seasonal fresh market produce at all times.
