“Linden House is our residents home. We feel privileged to be a part of their lives, supporting them to live well with dementia each and every day.” – Lorraine Bell, Home Manager
The residents and staff of our New Forest dementia 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.
At Linden House, we offer a completely different dementia care experience, guided by our philosophy of ‘living well with dementia.’ Our dedicated dementia community promotes a stimulating and engaging environment where residents who are living with dementia can live life at their own pace, maintaining a sense of purpose, independence and belonging.
Our dementia 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.
Our 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.
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.
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 Linden House. Here are some of their recent highlights.
“We cannot thank each and everyone of you enough for caring for mum with such gentleness, love and compassion for the last 4 years. It was a huge relief to the four of us that she was in such a special place, particularly during the Covid lockdowns.”
“The Parkinson’s clinic went today to see our relative at Linden House and during the course of the conversation about him and Linden House, the Dr said she was very impressed with the home and that I had chosen well. (She said she visited a lot of care homes!). She liked that Reception was expecting her, that the nurses knew all about him without referring to files and records and staff retention was good.”
“From the moment my brother and I stepped into Linden House, the atmosphere was so tranquil and relaxed. The front desk was extremely friendly and welcoming; the décor and furnishings were very tasteful, and the cleanliness and hygiene standards were very high. Mum was receiving end of life care, and the respect and attention she got from the care staff was second to none. As a daughter, I was kept abreast with every treatment Mum had and the hospitality I received was exceptional! Every member of staff needs to know that they are truly valued and that, however small their input has been, it has made a big difference to Mum’s journey. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making a devastating situation so much more bearable.”
“Our relative could not have been in a better place to spend her last days. Everything was exceptional; the care given and the facilities, including her lovely room with the view of the garden which, I am sure, gave her so much peace when less mobile. Special thanks to the many carers who, despite being busy, were so welcoming and helpful throughout my visits.”
“Just a very quick line to say thank you to all the care workers for making Mum’s stay at Linden House so comfortable. She was very happy, and I’m sure she will hopefully be back again soon for another respite stay.”
“I would just like to say a very big thank you for making Mum’s birthday a lovely occasion for us all to enjoy with her. In particular, our grateful thanks to the chef and catering staff who laid on refreshments for us all to enjoy – it made it very special. Thank you also to the lovely staff who care for Mum and make her feel loved and looked after.”
Finding the right care home for a loved one is about trust. At Linden House, you can be confident in the quality of care we provide.
