Rivabella care home

Residenza Rivabella is a care, convalescent and rest home that debunks the myth about homes for the elderly, offering five-star hospitality and care in Magliaso, in Canton Ticino.

Located in the temperate climate of Canton Ticino, just a few kilometres from the Swiss-Italian border, the Rivabella care home is easily reached and well served by transport links. It is also ideal for short respite stays and holidays. In our facility, you can enjoy the rare privilege of staying in a well cared-for environment with the services of a luxury hotel, located at the foot of the Malcantone hills, overlooking the relaxing expanse of Lake Lugano.

We can guarantee medical and nursing assistance, together with top-level physiotherapy, and we take care of our residents’ every healthcare need. We also apply the principle that “those who keep active, even as they get older, will benefit in terms of health and quality of life”, offering moments of relaxation and fun, with activities focused on all-round wellness as well as complete freedom to organise days to suit.

The structure of private and shared spaces in Rivabella

We offer guests the opportunity to maintain their own habits and independence, as long as they can.
Guests with reduced independence will be attended to by care staff.

Even when designing and building the home, we kept health and wellness of our guests at the forefront, using lots of woods for healthier interior spaces, all of which are very large and elegant. And to further reduce our impact on the environment, in 2006 we installed a photovoltaic and solar system which are still fully efficient.

Rooms and Suites
We have 50 beds in suites and large double/single rooms, all with TV, telephone, Internet, radio, safe, mini bar, air conditioning, emergency call service, terrace or garden, natural flooring, bathroom with shower, and no architectural barriers. Residents can decide how to furnish their rooms and even bring their furniture from home.

Private Apartments
We have thirty or so apartments (approx. 100 sq m) for independent people, to whom we guarantee the possibility to use all the services available at the care home next door. All you need to do is cross a short section of the garden to access medical and nursing assistance, physiotherapists, pool, sauna, gym and TECAR, but also a 5-star restaurant which can also serve meals to the apartments on request. All apartments, built according to MINERGIE eco-regulations are free from architectural barriers and therefore, also suitable for people with motor problems. Large, light and airy rooms offer incomparable views over the lake.

The Park
A large meadow goes down gently to the lake, while a series of winding footpaths offer use of the whole park, in a loop. Trees and flowers add to the environment, which also includes a pond filled with colourful fish.

At the centre of the home, the sunlight penetrates through a recently renewed structure with glass roof and majestic tropical plants, as well as a small waterfall. All rooms face out onto this large,light and airy space, where the recreational activities are organised during the winter, as well as concerts, a permanent modern art exhibition and many other cultural activities.

Wellness Centre
In the spa - equipped with Kneipp circuit, salt room, covered pool, massage tub, sauna, Turkish bath and massage centre - our guests can enjoy pure relaxation and wellness. The wellness centre is always open for independent residents, while those with less autonomy can use this service when the facility is supervised with the specific personnel.

Gourmet Restaurant
The highly qualified staff at the restaurant, the wonderful atmosphere and view out over the lake are all a clear invitation to spoil yourself in an atmosphere that satisfies all the senses. Our chef and his team will create dishes that appeal to the eyes and the taste buds, focusing on seasonal and organic ingredients, taking great care to meet personal needs and tastes, while guaranteeing a delicious, healthy and balanced diet.
