Life at Roman Ridge

At Roman Ridge, you choose the lifestyle that suits you.

In the morning, a local shop can deliver your daily milk or newspaper, and during the day we’ll call you to check that you’re okay. After breakfast in your apartment, you might choose to meet friends in our lounge, or take part in one of our regular activities. At lunchtime, the restaurant serves delicious hot meals, or you may want to prepare lunch for yourself, or for friends or family in your apartment.

If you fancy a change of scenery, Meadowhall shopping centre is less than a 10 minute drive away, or you could visit Rotherham and go to the Magna Science Adventure Centre or the South Yorkshire Transport Museum.

In the afternoon, you might join us for one of our regular social events, take part in our singing group or a chairobics class, or perhaps pop in to our onsite hairdressing salon for a bit of pampering. By evening, you may want to take it easy after all the activity! If not, you can always join friends to watch TV, or for a chat, a game of cards, or a mutual hobby.

My husband and I absolutely love it here. There is plenty to do and we especially like the bingo. We feel safe and secure living in such a friendly place.
