About Us

If a loved one requires specialist dementia care, look no further than Aranlaw House. We exist solely to provide residents with the specific care that they require to live out their days as happily and independently as possible.

Catering for people with acute dementia, Aranlaw House consists of 46 luxury en-suite rooms across three floors. All rooms are single occupancy and are accessible by lift.

The walls at Aranlaw House are decorated with murals which help to facilitate the independence of those living with dementia. The designs are used as memory triggers and also help remind residents of the location of their bedroom or communal areas.

It is proven that our visual cues, sensory reminders and a little gentle direction help to reduce agitation and frustration when confusion and fear arises.

Because of our enviable location, residents, with the assistance of care staff, can walk down to the seafront to experience the beautiful views of the Dorset coastline.

Located on a regular bus route, Aranlaw House is easily accessible for visiting loved ones.

Staff and Training

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.
