“A luxury home from home. We have a long standing, dedicated team who work hard to meet the individual needs of our residents, always delivering what we promise.” – Claire Robbins, Home Manager
The residents and staff of our Poole 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.
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.
Canford Chase 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 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 Canford Chase 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 enjoy keeping loved ones up to date with what’s going on within Canford Chase. Here are some of our residents’ recent highlights.
“Thank you to all at Canford Chase for making Tony’s birthday so very special. We do appreciate your efforts.”
“Everyone was so friendly towards my siblings and I when we visited but were also so lovely to my mother, everyone always calling her by name and treating her with kindness and respect. The staff are lovely, always friendly and chatty. This includes the gardener and hairdresser. The gardens at Canford Chase are beautiful and we spent many a happy afternoon sitting outside. We were delighted my mother chose Canford Chase to spend the remainder of her days once she realised she could no longer manage to live alone. Thank you everyone.”
“Thank you for everything you did for my mum in the last few months of her life. All of us would always want longer with our loved ones, but I will treasure all the years I had with her (more than many) and particularly the period she was at Canford Chase. My brother (in Australia) and myself believe she received expert care in your hands and for that we will always be immensely grateful. The team at Canford Chase should be immensely proud of the job they do, the care, kindness and love we experienced was exemplary.”
“Canford Chase Care Home is a very special place. My first month here has been so enjoyable. Everyone is friendly, helpful and always greets me with a smile and knows my name. I have a lovely room and receive all assistance I need with calm and kindness in excellent facilities. There are plenty of different activities every day and often trips out. I am really looking forward to the spring and summer when we can all enjoy more of the beautiful garden.”
“A longstanding friend spent two and a half years at Canford Chase having decided that he no longer wished to live on his own in a large house. He greatly enjoyed the company of others, the excellent food and the level of care he received from all the staff. He was very happy and only regretted not making the decision to enter a care home earlier. He always had a smile on his face whenever I visited him which was of great comfort to me as having no family I was effectively his next of kin. When he passed away last month the staff were extremely sympathetic and made numerous tributes to a man sadly missed.”
“The care and attention she received were beyond compare. It can only be described as a home from home”
Finding the right care home for a loved one is about trust. At Canford Chase, you can be confident in the quality of care we provide.
