The residents and staff of our care home in Poundbury 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.
Castle View 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 Castle View 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 Castle View. Here are some of their recent highlights.
“They have staff for every eventuality, carers, nurses, entertainment as well as all support services. It always seems to be very well organised with a great management team, creating a happy, friendly environment for staff as well as residents. We are so grateful that Dad is there. We cannot imagine a better home for him.”
“Our mother has received excellent care and support during her four years at Castle View. The staff are friendly and helpful throughout the home and have been very good at communicating with my brother and me whenever there have been issues or emergencies with Mum’s health.”
“The staff, facilities, menu, activities, room and equipment is absolutely five star. It has eased my worry knowing my friend is being well looked after and cared for in an environment that is clean, warm, friendly and with staff that really do care.”
“Please find enclosed some chequers pieces from the Green Room. When we visited my great nannie at the weekend, I hid them in my mummy’s bag – sorry, I didn’t realise I couldn’t take them home! I hope the residents can now enjoy a game of chequers again! Thank you for taking amazing care of my great nannie – I loved visiting her!”
“Thank you all very, very much for taking such good care of our relative during her time living with you (and for putting up with me daily)!”
“Many thanks for your astounding care of my beloved sister. We are so very grateful.”
Finding the right care home for a loved one is about trust. At Castle View, you can be confident in the quality of care we provide.
