Taste of Dorset Awards

We were the headline sponsor of the Taste of Dorset Awards for the seventh year running. We believe that wholesome, nutritious and well-balanced food and drink is an essential part of the care we provide. It is critical to our well-being in so many ways but should also be a pleasure in itself. With a passion for skilfully crafted and beautifully presented meals, our support for Taste of Dorset reflects our recognition of all those individuals, businesses and organisations involved in local food production.

Our Garden

We pride ourselves on our beautiful and stimulating gardens. We recognise that many of our residents had such gardens themselves, and that gardening may have been a special pastime for them. We like to think that we can offer residents the opportunity to continue that pastime in whatever way they feel appropriate.

Every year, we celebrate the hard work and dedication of the team members across the Colten group who consistently deliver above and beyond expectations.

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 Canford Chase, not only are we supporting all of the central initiatives, but we are also working closely with residents and relatives to seek other ways our home can reduce our consumption of plastic. If you have any ideas or suggestions which could help us in our plastic-free drive, please do get in touch.
