National Carers Week

October 13, 2015

There are aprox. 2.7 million un-paid carers in Australia providing physical and personal assistance with all activities of daily living, medications, attending appointments, providing emotional, financial and social support. These carers are Australia’s unsung heroes.
All Riviera Health facilities offer Respite Care from one week up to 9 weeks, so the primary carer can have a much needed break / holiday or even seek their own medical treatment. In most cases, respite rooms are single rooms. For all enquiries regarding respite care, fees and charges or to pre-book a period of respite stay, please contact any of our facilities. (ACAT assessment is required for all persons seeking residential respite care)

Accreditation Up-Date

September 24, 2015

It is with great pride that we announce all five of the Riviera Health Facilities successfully achieved 3 years accreditation. A big Thank You to the team of dedicated employees at each of the facilities for consistently delivering quality person centred care to your residents.

Accreditation Success

July 21, 2015

Congratulations to three of our Riviera Health Facilities who have recently achieved full 3 year accreditation. The Aged Care Accreditation Agency conducts both announced and un-announced visits every year and audits the facility against just a few of the 44 standards. However once every 3 years, every aged care facility is assessed against all of the 44 standards over a concentrated 2-3 day period. Jenny-Lynn, Toukley and Wyong facilities were the first of our group to be assessed and as testament to our fantastic Rivera Health team – achieved a successful outcome in all of the standards.

Forestview and Doonside facilities will undergo full assessment in the coming weeks.

Following the devastating earthquakes in Nepal, Pilar Uzabeaga – Manager at our Forestview (Chatswood) facility commenced fundraising. Riviera Health employs several Nepalese and witnessed firsthand, the trauma these staff members went through for several days, as they desperately tried to make contact with their families.

The amount donated by our employees and Board Members was $3,656 and Riviera Health matched the donation

A Total of $7,312 was donated through the Red Cross Nepal Earthquake Appeal.

A BIG THANK YOU to all those who donated.
