How to choose a care facility

Choosing a facility for senior citizens is an important step and one of the most difficult decisions to make. For over 30 years, Residenza Rivabella has disproved all preconceived ideas about care homes, providing its guests with an excellent place in which to experience their senior years.

Although deciding to leave one’s home to move into a care structure for seniors is a delicate change, often, the fact of abandoning one’s comfort zone can be a great opportunity to break with the traditions and preconceived ideas, boosting new functions and skills that delay the ageing process. Before choosing the facility to stay in, it is essential to make sure it is the best suited to your needs and lifestyle, assessing the organisation, medical services and care.
Located in the splendid setting of Magliaso alongside Lake Lugano, Residenza Rivabella is an exclusive place combining the comforts of a luxury hotel with 24/7 medical and nursing care. This means we can offer guests the possibility to spend short holiday-convalescent stays (even a week) or to stay for the long term.
Choosing to spend your retirement in our care home will allow you to enjoy a relaxing, refined oasis where, with a good deal of enthusiasm, respect and great professionalism, we do our best to ensure that every guest feels at the centre of our attention and is absolutely “at home”.

The Rivabella Residence has 50 beds, recognised by basic health insurance, and 30 private apartments.

Residential and care services offered to guests at our facility for seniors

The discreet, privileged environment of our care home has been designed to meet your needs all round, so that you can live independently and caring for you according to your needs.

Self-sufficient guests have total independence in terms of organising their days, while people with less autonomy are cared for by our dedicated staff.

With a clinical team on site, 24/7, we can guarantee continuity of care and rehabilitation therapy in our medical gym, planning medical examinations and meetings with family members several times a week.
As well as large, light and air living accommodation, you will also have large common spaces for relaxing, having fun, and receiving your family.

Lastly, we offer you all the comforts of a five-star hotel, including hairdresser/barber, beautician, podiatrist, etc. as well as secretarial services for anything you need, from hiring transport with driver to boats for a trip on the lake, dog-sitting services for your pet, and dealing with correspondence.
