Riviera Health, Real Quality Living for the Elderly

Riviera Health is based on the practise of "person centred care" - care that's based on the wants, needs and requirements of each individual person in our care.

:

Are you suffering with a bad cold or the flu? Residents of an aged care facility are very vulnerable and less able to fight off a nasty virus, so we ask that you do not visit until you are feeling much better. Also please remember to always sanitize your hands upon entry to a facility to help prevent the spread of germs.

5 Steps Guide

Working out the Costs

For anyone entering care for the first time from 1st July 2014 onwards, the fees and charges have changed. You may be asked to pay a Residential Aged Deposit, or a Daily Accommodation Payment or a combination of both. Please visit the locations tab above and/or contact any of our facilities and talk to the friendly support team.

Selecting a home

We generally recommend families look at aprox, 3 different facilities, before making a decision.  There are lots of things you should look for and questions that you need to ask.

Moving and Settling In

Once you choose a home, the next step is moving in.
