Colten Care

 

Our Home

Newstone House is located in the beautiful market town of Sturminster Newton. Contemporary and luxurious, it manages to combine the brightness and efficiency of a modern building and state-of-the-art facilities, with the friendliness and openness of the traditional local community within which it resides. It’s a large home, split into six distinct house groups, with a dedicated facility on the first floor for people living with dementia.

The home is part of Colten Care, an independent and family-run company determined to set the highest standards in all aspects of care for the elderly. With our simple, all-inclusive pricing structure, there are no hidden extras or non-refundable deposits.

Fiona Pritchard is our new Music and Arts Partner, a role we introduced in February 2018 to help support our homes with their music and arts activities.

Whether it be through storytelling, singing, drama, writing poetry, dance, music and movement, colour therapy, collage work, puppetry, digital art apps, or games using mime, we are now able to ensure each resident has the opportunity to explore the many ways in which music and arts can have a positive impact upon their lives and enrich their wellbeing.

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.

Publications

Elaine Farrer, our Operations Director, has written an article for Nursing Times exploring how to live well with dementia:

Dementia shouldn't be a barrier to living well
Can living well with dementia actually be achieved? I know it can, but only if you allow the person to actually live with dementia.

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 Newstone House, 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.
