24 Hour DEMENTIA & NURSING CARE

The residents of Linden House, and every home in the Colten Care family, benefit from having Colten Care employed nurses on-site at all times, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Our residents enjoy their homely surroundings, vibrant atmosphere and beautiful gardens safe in the knowledge that should they require nursing assistance at any time of the day or night, it’s not only available immediately, it’s provided by nurses they know, and who know them.

We believe this comprehensive approach is essential to deliver the best possible care for our residents, to give reassurance to their loved ones, and to ensure continuity of care should their care needs increase over time.

We also provide access to an Admiral Nurse, a specialist dementia care nurse who gives expert practical, clinical and emotional support to families facing the challenges of dementia.
