Choosing to place your loved one in a care home does not mean compromising on their independence, dignity, and happiness. When you find the right home, quite the opposite can be true, and when you find a Colten Care home, that’s when the magic happens.
Every photo you’ll see on this website is of real residents and staff, because the quality of life at Colten Care is not just a promise, it’s a reality.
We provide the highest standards of residential, nursing, and dementia care to the older person living in or moving to Dorset, Hampshire, Wiltshire and West Sussex. For more than 40 years we’ve been supporting our residents to live meaningful and fulfilled lives to the best of their abilities.
You can have peace of mind that a Colten Care life is a life lived well, full of companionship, laughter, music, hobbies, nature and experiences. We put residents at the heart of all we do, treating them as individuals with their needs, preferences and lifestyle choices supported and respected by everyone in their vibrant and happy home.
“We opened our first care home more than 40 years ago with a vision to set the highest standards in care. We now have over 20 homes, each integrated and supporting its local community.” – John Colwell – Co-Founder
Our reassuringly comprehensive, nurse-led approach to care means we can meet the needs of residents wherever they are on their care journey. From a little extra help with daily living to more complex nursing or dementia care, we ensure all our residents receive the best possible care in a safe, comfortable and homely environment.
We design, build and operate our care homes, which come with quality as standard. From the luxurious and homely interiors to the beautiful and stimulating gardens, each home has been designed and built to the highest specifications for care, whilst retaining a distinct character and charm that reflects its own individual style and community.
Community spirit is as important to our residents as it is to us. We love to share stories that show what an active role both the residents and staff of Colten Care homes take in engaging and supporting the local communities within which they serve. We hope you enjoy some of the more recent stories.
Finding the right care home for a loved one is about trust. At Colten Care, you can be confident in the quality of care we provide.
