Our handpicked suppliers

Bespoke furnishings from well-respected local craftsmen exemplify our ethos of excellence in all we do. 

We have been working alongside Lymington-based Webber Furniture, a third-generation family carpentry firm, for more than eight years. Working solely in hand-crafted oak, they have made most of our dining room and bedroom furniture. Fabrication firm Fusion, also in Lymington, have also created our art-deco-style vanity units, specially designed to enable wheelchair users to easily access the sink. Our locally sourced approach also extends to food and drink suppliers handpicked for their quality. With their help, our residents enjoy delicious meals made with the finest, locally-sourced ingredients.

Our Langside School Partnership

We are delighted to announce our partnership with our neighbour, Langside School. The school is run by a Dorset charity, Diverse Abilities, and specialises in educating children with multiple learning disabilities and complex medical needs.

So far, we have contributed to a new sensory room and have given the exterior a bright and vibrant paint job. We look forward to keeping you updated on how this exciting new partnership evolves.

Caring Without Plastic

Colten Care has become the first major provider in the UK's private care home sector to begin a group-wide reduction of single-use plastic. This is a significant move given the care sector's traditionally high use of plastic in clinical services, person-centred care and infection control.

Here at Bourne View, we will support all of the central initiatives, but we will also work closely with residents and relatives to seek other ways our home can reduce our consumption of plastic.
