We have a full compliment of over 50 staff. The Matron/Manager Mrs. Judith Maidment has managed the home since 2004 and is a Registered nurse with over 30 years experience. Mrs. Maidment trained in Salisbury Hospital. She has worked for the NHS and Nursing Homes for many years. For 5 years she worked in the community as part of the Marie Curie Cancer Care Team. She later worked for Bupa managing another Home.
Matron’s Deputy, Gale Cable, and Head of Care, Anne-Charlotte Mc Dermid are also both very experienced nurses. Whilst Gale has also been a Bupa Manager, Anne-Charlotte has worked at Riverside for 15 years and is one of the co-ordinators for the Gold Standard Framework for End of life Care. Her speciality is palliative care and tissue viability.
They are supported by 8 other excellent Registered nurses. A team of dedicated Health Care Assistants have, or are working towards, their NVQ (now known as a Diploma course.) This is completed by Heads of Departments and their enthusiastic teams, many of whom have been with Riverside for over 10 and 20 years.
