Show more "At the end of a cul-de-sac in a residential area of Palacefields, Runcorn are Riverside’s Retirement Living apartments, Dorset Gardens Extra Care. You can keep on living independently, with the peace of mind that you’re safe and sound.

Dorset Gardens is close to a range of amenities. A convenience store, hairdressers, plus other neighbourhood retail outlets can be found at the nearby parade of shops, which is within walking distance. The bus, taking you to Runcorn is virtually on your doorstep.

We’ll support you to live life to the full, so you can keep active and be involved in the local community if you want to. You can concentrate on enjoying that extra feeling of freedom.

You can join in the activities and entertainment which are arranged on a regular basis. We’ll encourage you to join in, but it’s entirely up to you. Many of these are organised by the people who live at Dorset Gardens themselves, so it’s a great way of getting to know your neighbours.

Riverside’s Retirement Living Team is available through a 24-hour call system. Care and support staff are available for those who need a bit of extra help. You can also use our monitoring systems to help make sure you’re okay, every day." Show less
