Dedicated Dementia Care



“Supporting you to overcome the challenges associated with dementia.”
Our dementia promise, Colten Care



One of the UK’s top-rated care home providers, we offer a completely different dementia care experience. All of our dedicated dementia communities are conceived, from the very first design idea, purely for people affected by dementia. Residents are enabled to share in activities, retain practical skills, pursue lifelong passions and even take up new interests. Residents can live life at their own pace, getting up, dining and welcoming visitors when it suits.

We meet you face to face, taking time for you to fully understand and discuss your circumstances before helping you plan the way ahead. We also liaise with other professionals. At all times we strive to provide the highest standards of person and family-centred care championing dignity, respect and consistency.

If a dementia care home is the best option, we help ease the transition to a dedicated setting where professional dementia care specialists are on hand 24/7. To enable a resident to live well with dementia, we take a ‘can do’ approach and aim to make every day a fulfilled day.

Care sector regulator the Care Quality Commission has recently praised the ‘exceptionally personalised’ way we provide dementia care. In our dedicated dementia care homes, residents live in small house groups. These ensure that care, companionship, nutrition, sensory design and the daily environment are all built around the individual needs of residents.

Admiral Nurses are specially trained nurses in dementia care. They work alongside families, giving one-to-one support, expert guidance and practical solutions. Under an innovative partnership with Dementia UK.

Complementing our Admiral Nurse, we have a senior dementia nurse at each of our dedicated dementia settings who is responsible for individual residents’ clinical care. All staff at these homes receive enhanced specialist training in their roles and are provided with continued support by a team of regional experts in their field. More than 90% of our entire staff are dementia friends.

To enhance the lives of our residents, we invest in proven innovations such as magic table technology, communication devices such as tablets and smart speakers. Our Admiral Nurse and other clinical experts give presentations on our work at nursing conferences and write for specialist professional publications.
