We have good stock levels of approved Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), which is worn by all our staff and any necessary visitors to the care home.

Keeping in touch

We’re doing everything we can to stay in touch with residents’ family and loved ones, updating them on the current situation and any changes to visiting through online updates, remotely organised meetings and letters.

Richmond offers care and comfort, compassion and friendship. At the heart of all we offer is our assurance that you will be treated with the respect and dignity that we all deserve, and if you need anything at all, we’re here to help, 24 hours a day.

Whether in the privacy of your own room or relaxing in the company of your friends and neighbours, we will support you to spend your time doing the things you enjoy. Let us know if it’s music, a favourite newspaper, exercise or a spot of pampering at the salon. Landscaped gardens invite you to appreciate the fresh air, or tend the plants if you wish. There’s a wide range of social events, so you never need to feel bored or lonely.

Richmond has the latest safety and security design features so you can live life to the full with peace of mind.

Your room

All rooms are en suite and comfortably furnished and we have free wifi throughout the home.

A TV can be provided for your room on request and residents have access to a computer. We have a call system which can be operated by a hand control or a pendant depending on personal preference. We also offer a choice of a profile bed or a divan, ensuring we can meet individual choices or care needs.

You can bring your own furniture to furnish your room, such as a favourite armchair or their own bed. Walls can be personalised with their own pictures, shelving and ornaments. Some of our residents bring their own curtains which makes the room theirs and more homely.

Dedicated dementia care

MHA is one of the pioneers of person-centred specialist dementia care in the UK. Our first specialist dementia care home opened in 1989 and since then we have continued to develop our approach in our care homes and retirement apartments across the UK.

Our specialist dementia care recognises each person as a unique individual. At Richmond, our caring, professional and fully-trained carers, provide the highest quality care to preserve dignity, treat people with respect and promote independence.

Everyone with dementia is different. That's why a person-centred approach is key: at Richmond, we take time to get to know each individual’s history, personality and preferences, and find ways to make every day fulfilling.

Our purpose-built dementia area at Richmond is designed and decorated to be safe for you, and also as familiar, reassuring and as easy to navigate as possible. The dementia floor is secured by keypad coding to ensure that you are safe and secure at all times.

We provide ‘show and tell’ at mealtimes where you are visually presented with the two meals on the menu so you can select which one you would like. Other options are also available if you would like an alternative.

We have a dementia secure garden with sensory plants and ornaments. The dementia floor is at ground level and you can visit the garden at any time.

We ensure residents are fully supported in their everyday lives and tailor some of our activities around dementia needs. Examples include Sound Bingo, Reminiscence Therapy and a dementia-friendly box of activities with sensory and visual impact.

Our bedroom doors have individual door furniture to assist you to find your own room or a memory box. We have also painted our WC and bathroom doors bright yellow to guide you to the facilities as needed.

Residential care

Finding a place that you can call "home" is a question of getting the right balance.

Richmond’s residential care provides 24-hour support to help residents maintain independence – giving peace of mind and a place to make new friends and explore new interests.

In many ways it is like living in a hotel, where you don’t need to worry about laundry, changing the bed or cleaning your room. We will use the district nurse and GPs to provide any medical care. Our caring staff help with everyday activities like bathing and dressing and support at mealtimes. At the same time, there is no reason why you can’t maintain links with the local community, or develop new friendships and relationships. Care staff will help you do that, while also working hard to create a home that is itself full of opportunity and possibility.

In the main living areas of the home, you will find lounges where you can join in one of the many activities with others or sit quietly with a book or newspaper.

Food and drink

Mealtimes are an important part of the day here, giving our residents the opportunity to get together and enjoy freshly prepared food in a relaxed restaurant-style environment. We always offer two meal options and our chefs will happily prepare something special if nothing on the menu appeals.

  • Freshly prepared meals, cooked by our in-house chef
  • All dietary and religious needs catered for
  • Locally sourced meats, fruit and vegetables where possible
  • Seasonal ingredients – menus change three times a year with input from residents
  • Specialist equipment and assistance as needed
  • Snacks and drinks available 24 hours a day
  • Home baking every day
  • Relatives welcome to join residents for meals

“Food is very, very good. Good choice of breakfast, lunch and supper. Meals are shown to residents for them to select. High praise to the chef and his team.” Independent review on carehome.co.uk

Our commitment to your wellbeing

Our highly-trained, dedicated members of staff will always be on hand to provide your care and support in the way that best suits you, in the comfort of your own room.

We choose the people who work with us very carefully. They need to share our values and respect people, their life experience and personal choices.

We take pride in the cleanliness and maintenance of your home and provide a thorough and friendly cleaning service. Your personal washing will be carefully laundered and returned to you, clean and fresh.

We also provide regular gentle exercise sessions and have close links with GP surgeries, district nurses and dentists. Our in-house hair salon and nail care, plus visiting gym instructor, optician and chiropodist keep everyone looking their best. And uplifting visits from local schools and pet therapy animals keep us all young at heart.
