Riverside View Care Home in County Durham

A warm welcome to Riverside View Care Home, Darlington

You’ll find Riverside View Care Home overlooks the River Skerne which sits on a beautiful conservation area. We are a short drive from Darlington centre and close to the A167 and A66, making us easily accessible for visitors to pop-in for a chat.

Our Care team offers residential care for people who need help with daily tasks, and residential dementia care where we support our residents to maintain their independence and individuality, encouraging social activity and building relationships within the home. We also provide respite care to give family or friends a well-earned break, and intermediate care as alternative to hospital stay.

Our dementia care is accredited as part of Four Seasons Dementia Care Framework.

We run a busy activities programme, including monthly visits from two local churches, and weekly pet therapy visits by Tullula our friendly Golden Retriever. Pet therapy visits benefit our residents greatly and she never fails to put a smile on their faces.
