“Mum has been well looked after by friendly dedicated staff, many of whom are local and therefore bring a good community feeling. I am always welcomed by people I know when I visit and kept up to date about mum. This is so reassuring.” – P T, daughter of resident at Whitecliffe House, Blandford Forum
Colten Care is a family-owned business built on core values that still guide us from the very heart of our business today. Our values shape the company culture and play out in our home every day through meaningful, heartfelt interactions between staff, residents and family members.
We believe happy staff deliver the best care. That’s why we provide strong leadership, a positive atmosphere, opportunities to progress, and a range of benefits to show we truly value and appreciate our staff:
The driving force behind the exceptional care we provide to residents is our amazing staff.
Each year we hold our Colten Champions Awards to recognise and celebrate individuals and teams who deliver excellence in nursing, resident engagement, and other areas where we consistently exceed expectations. Our team’s commitment to going above and beyond is what sets us apart and makes a real difference in the lives of those we serve.
