“We do our very best to make life as easy and comfortable as possible for our residents, making it a place they can call home.” – Diane Nicholls, Home Manager
The residents and staff of our Ferndown care home are a family, making memories with each other every day. We are living life to our full capabilities, with positivity, empathy, compassion and respect.
Amberwood House nurses are available for all residents, at all times. We believe that’s the bedrock of a safe and happy home, providing nurse-led care to manage complex medical conditions, whilst ensuring all residents can stay within their familiar and comfortable home setting should their care needs change.
Our care teams assist with all aspects of daily living for our residents, from personal care to taking regular medications, working flexibly to promote independence providing support to maintain the physical care and comfort of residents.
Our residential care service is designed to provide a comfortable and relaxed home environment where home maintenance, laundry, cooking and housekeeping are taken care of on your behalf.
Short Stay & Respite
We offer the same high quality care services enjoyed by our long-term residents on a short-term basis. Whether it’s for a short period of recovery, a respite break or simply a trial run for those looking for a permanent move, we offer a home from home where residents can live their life, their way.
Although Amberwood House is not a dementia home, we are committed to supporting our residents to live meaningful and fulfilled lives, and that includes those living with the earlier stages of dementia or cognitive impairment.
End Of Life
We want people to live well with us, making the most of every single day. If that means being together until the end of life, we want our residents to die well with dignity with family around, in familiar surroundings with staff they know well.
We aim to make every day worth writing about, and our residents enjoy keeping loved ones up to date with what they’ve been up to at Amberwood House. Here are some of their recent highlights.
“A very big thank you for the time you all spent making my mum comfortable in her short time with you. You made her last few days especially comfortable for her.”
“Thank you very, very much to each and every one of you at Amberwood House for all the help and kindness shown to me during my two week stay with you.”
“My mother settled into Amberwood House really quickly and has no regrets about leaving her home. The staff have been lovely and have really catered for all her needs. The rooms and communal areas are clean and tidy and well-maintained. I would definitely recommend Amberwood House.”
“The best decision I made for my mum was placing her in Colten. From the top management to the part-time staff. Everyone’s focus is on the resident. Nothing is too much trouble for all staff whether it’s medical, activities meals or just a chat. I have been so impressed with how the relatives are kept informed of medical conditions or just chat about anything I wish to discuss with them. If you are considering a care home for a friend or relative please talk to the management and staff at Amberwood. It will be the best move you make for your loved one.”
I cannot fault Amberwood House and all staff there. They made my mother’s last few months a joy with their caring, kindness and unfailing compassion. They took in a challenge as the only place she wanted to be was ‘home’ and that simply wasn’t possible. They patiently won her round, discovered gentle ways to deal with the anxiety and behaviours and made her feel loved. The food was excellent. Mother regained all the weight she had lost through not eating at home.

Finding the right care home for a loved one is about trust. At Amberwood House, you can be confident in the quality of care we provide.
