Each of our residents has differing needs, some more complex than others.
It may be that your diagnosis, e.g. Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's Disease or Huntington's Disease, requires more specialist care, and we want to be able to deliver that care to the best of our ability. As such we invite all of our potential residents to undergo a pre-admission assessment which enables us to decide on the best course of action to manage your care needs.
Many of our homes also provide Palliative care and two of our homes Abbey View and Canford Chase have been accredited with the Gold Standard Framework in Palliative Care. Our other homes are also working towards this accreditation.

We have three care homes which have been specially designed and built for those people living with dementia. At The Aldbury, Fernhill and St Catherines View the use of design principles proven to engage those living with dementia are evident. These homes are divided into house groups which use orientation clues such as contrasting colours for doors and walls so that each resident can find their way around the home with ease. Each home also provides additional staff both for caring and social activities and all staff participate in a dementia care training programme. We also have specialist dementia care units at two of our homes Newstone House in Sturminster Newton and Kingfishers in New Milton.
