Located a short walk from Westbourne’s beautiful beach, Aranlaw House is a modern, luxury care home which has been specially adapted to provide the highest levels of dementia care.
Having recently received ‘outstanding’ across the board from the latest Care Quality Commission inspection, Aranlaw House is recognised as one of the leading dementia care homes in Dorset.
The care delivered by our passionate and dedicated team is carefully balanced to ensure residents receive high-quality care that doesn’t mar their sense of dignity and independence.
Working with residents themselves, family members and medical professionals, we formulate unique care plans that are tailored to the individual’s needs. Our care plans are aided by the incredible interior design here at Aranlaw House, which has proven to facilitate independence.
Our residents’ health and wellbeing is at the heart of all those who work in our Poole luxury care home. The staff have a ‘nothing is ever too much’ attitude, and will make each interaction with residents count, ensuring the sense of morale in Aranlaw House is at a consistent high.
2017 was an outstanding year for Aranlaw, Not only did CQC rate Aranlaw as outstanding, but Aranlaw was also nominated as Care Home of the year 2017 in the proud to care awards, Aranlaw was nominated by the relatives and I am pleased to announce that we were the winners of the category, one of the care staff was also a shortlisted finalist for the care worker of the year.
Both of these are great achievements and reflect the dedication of the staff to achieving the best for each and every resident.
It takes a strong and dedicated team to achieve a continuously high level of care. Here at Aranlaw House, we have a close network of managers, assistant managers, caregivers, specialist staff and support staff who all work together to make sure the residents here are always benefitting from a maximum sense of wellbeing.
The staff here are employed because of their caring nature. They have, through the induction process and subsequent hands-on training, demonstrated that they are capable of delivering care to a high standard.
We also operate a buddy system for all new employees. This ensures that each member of our team receives the support they need to comfortably provide the unique care that each resident requires.
Upon employment, all staff are given the opportunity to work towards their care certificate. They are also actively encouraged to progress through the company and gain additional qualifications to help boost the level of care that they practise.
“Thank you for looking after our friend so well, we will always remember the kindness shown to her and us during her time at your home. We were impressed with the professional way all members of staff treated her and us and the high standard of nursing care she received from the nurses.”
“What I particularly liked about Birds Hill was that it offered tranquillity as well as the opportunity to enjoy social activities. The residents were given a choice of meals, were consulted on what they wanted to wear, and asked whether they wanted to relax in their room or sit in the lounge. My frequent visits to my mother were made more pleasurable because of the friendly caring staff.”
