Facilities

At Aranlaw House, we have first-rate facilities that enable us to provide our residents with the highest levels of care. A fully equipped kitchen, full laundry service, and freshly prepared nutritious meals are just some of the benefits that our residents experience.

Laundry

Our staff are incredibly attentive when it comes to keeping clothing and bedding clean. Residents at our luxury care home in Poole benefit from freshly laundered clothes and regular linen changes which are in line with strict hygiene standards.

We wash all laundry with a special detergent that kills all microorganisms including bacteria, yeast, fungi, moulds and viruses. This ensures that the environment here is always kept clean and as germ-free as possible.

When a new resident moves in, their clothing is sewn with a unique button which allows our laundry team to return clothes to their rightful owner.

All dry cleaning is carried out by an external company and can be arranged upon request by a resident if required.

Catering

Our experienced chefs are on hand to create nutritional meals for our residents. From full breakfast spreads to tasty lunches and balanced dinners, we make sure that our residents are eating properly and keeping hydrated throughout the day.

Before any resident moves in, we will create them a food passport, which the chef will then use to create meals that are tailored to their specific needs. If a resident doesn’t like the look of what is on the menu for any particular day, the chef is more than happy to cook any meal that they may prefer.

We work with dieticians to create menus that will provide residents with all the nutrition that they require to remain fit and healthy. All meals are cooked fresh from local ingredients, so food retains its maximum nutritional value.

Chiropody

Aranlaw has its own independent chiropodist who visits 6-8 weekly, we also have the nhs podiatry service visiting for those who are eligible for this service.

Optician

Our visiting optician service has had many years’ experience in looking after the eyesight of those in residential homes. The qualified opticians carry the latest mobile optical equipment, enabling our residents to have a full eye test in the comfort of their own surroundings.

Doctors & Dentists

We request GP appointments on behalf of our residents as and when they need them. We also have visits from our dental team for all dentures, dental repairs and check-ups as and when needed.

Hair Salon

Getting one’s hair done is one of life’s simple pleasures, so at Aranlaw House we have a dementia trained mobile hairdresser readily available to cut residents’ hair on request.

Medical Services

Our residents’ medical needs are looked after right here on the premises. From doctors’ appointments and mental health assessments to dentist appointments and hearing assessments, residents benefit from having all of their medical needs tended to in familiar and safe surroundings.

We can also arrange visits from the following health professionals:

  • Psychiatrists
  • Occupational therapists
  • Chiropodists
  • Audiologists
  • District and local nurses

Our chaplain

We’re one of the few Poole care homes that caters for all denominations of religions. The residents can choose to attend the regular services delivered by our multi-denominational chaplain. There, they’ll be encouraged to sing along to their favourite hymns. Our chaplain is also another person our residents can turn to for help and support.
