Fortunately, the decision needn’t be a difficult one as with an impressive reputation to back us up; we’re considered to be the best care home Dorset has to offer. To learn more about our home and facilities, keep reading or call Aranlaw House today on 01202 763367.
Part of the Luxury Care group, Aranlaw House is a care home dedicated to providing first-class residential and dementia care. Situated just a stone’s throw from Westbourne’s stunning sandy beaches, you’ll find our home to be both modern and well-equipped. Recently voted ‘Outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission, we place the health and well-being of our residents at the heart of everything we do. We’re committed to being the finest care home Dorset can offer.
Of course, a building is just bricks and mortar. What makes our home more than the sum of its parts is the people that work here. Our team consists of talented, passionate individuals with roles ranging from managers and caregivers to specialist staff and more. We employ all staff at our Dorset care home based on their capacity to care for others.
We want our residents to feel safe and relaxed as they would in the comfort of their own home. All new employees are enrolled in a buddy system, and every member of staff is supported through on-going training. We even help our employees to work towards their care certificate and to progress through the company and gain other qualifications. By investing in our team, we’ve created a care home Dorset residents can trust to put their loved ones’ needs first.
All residents are given their own room which they are free to personalise as they see fit. We encourage residents to bring personal items to help make them feel more at home. Every room comes equipped with en-suite facilities, a comfortable bed and furniture and we’re happy to remove any furniture that isn’t required. We have a painter and decorator that regularly visits our care home. Dorset residents can take this opportunity to have their room painted a colour of their choosing.
In addition, each room features brightly coloured bedroom doors with the resident’s name and picture. This makes it easier for residents with memory-related issues to find their room.
Spread across three floors, you’ll find separate communal and dining areas. There is the option for residents to use the lifts to move between floors and all this is monitored closely for the resident’s safety. Our communal areas are tastefully decorated and kept maintained by our helpful support team, and there are a variety of visual cues to assist residents. Those staying in our care home in Dorset who wish to help keep the communal areas tidy are more than welcome to do so.
Here at Aranlaw House, our residents have full access to a wide range of facilities. This includes services provided by our team such as laundry and catering but also includes a range of medical services too such as:
Residents will also have full access to our mobile dementia trained hairdresser. After all, being pampered is one of life’s little pleasures. Plus, as the most accommodating care home, Dorset has to offer, we cater for all religious denominations. We’re visited by a chaplain, and residents will have the opportunity to attend regular services.
So, whether you’re seeking out our home for palliative, dementia or residential care, we’re confident that you won’t find a better option than our care home. Dorset need only call us on 01202 763367 to find out more.
We all deserve to be treated with dignity and respect, and this holds true throughout our lives. At Aranlaw House, we’re committed to providing our residents with everything they need to live out their days as happy as possible. We like to help our residents retain as much of their independence as possible, for as long as possible. It’s why we’re such a popular care home in Dorset.
We consider family to be important and our doors are always open to family members who wish to visit their loved ones.
