*Wellness Clinic: A complimentary wellness clinic run by a Registered Nurse will be available to Residents. Initially, this will be as required, but only up to once a week. If the RN has already visited the Village during that week, Residents are advised to contact their local medical centre. However, once the Care Home is constructed it will be on a regular basis of once a week. Dressings and other medical resources may be charged to the Resident (at Bupa Riverstone’s standard rates) as Additional Service Costs.

^Meal Deliveries: Once the Community Centre is constructed (expected to be mid-2019), Bupa Riverstone will arrange for the provision of meals, excluding breakfast, in the Village community dining room if requested by the Resident. Meals will be charged at Bupa Riverstone’s standard rates and separately invoiced to the Resident as Additional Service Costs. Meals delivered to the Resident’s Residential Unit will incur a small delivery charge.

The current plans for the stages of construction for Bupa Riverstone are as follows, but are subject to change at our discretion:

Stage 1: construction of 18 villas. Construction commenced in November 2017 and anticipated completion is in June 2018.

Stage 2A: Construction of the Community Centre. Estimated commencement is mid-2018 and anticipated completion in mid-2019.
