Riverside Nursing Home

Riverside is home for 39 residents. Rooms are attractively decorated, most are en-suite. Some have French doors leading out to the garden or a safe balcony. All have a television and a telephone point. A fridge, safe and courtesy tray can be provided if desired. Each room is tastefully furnished but residents are encouraged to bring small items of furniture if they wish.


There is a newly refurbished dining room and a beautiful conservatory leading out to the peaceful and pretty garden. The sound of water running into the pond completes the idyllic picture on a warm summer’s evening.

Coronavirus Update

There has been a lot in the media about the Coronavirus and we want to take this opportunity to let you know that we have management plans in place for dealing with this pandemic.

Our residents remain our top priority as do our staff, so we are taking all the necessary precautions advised. We are having daily updates and are following the guidelines set out by the government. We would like to thank you for your continued support and patience with regards to this matter.

Thank you so very much for all you did for Mum.  You took such great care of her and we are so grateful to you all.

Testimonials

My husband has been in Riverside Nursing Home in Sherborne for five months now. He took a few weeks to settle down in his new surroundings at first but now has got to know the Staff. The Nurses, Carers, the Chef, all have been so kind, respectful, most of all understanding the needs of not only the residents but their families. Only recently we enjoyed an outing to Weymouth organised by the Activities Co-ordinator. Matron Judith Maidment waved us off as our special coach left Riverside. Thank you all
