HELPING YOU THROUGHOUT THE HOLIDAYS Our facilities are available to assist with short term care needs over the Holiday period If you are going on holiday and are worried about the care needs of your loved one during this time, Riverleigh offers short-term care services to assist you. Our short-term residents can expect to enjoy the same great service as any of our other residents, including a full meal service, activities, clinical, and household services. Because many healthcare staff are on leave during the Holidays (they’re only human, after all!), sometimes there may be some frustration in trying to access healthcare services during this time.
