“We do our very best to make life as easy and comfortable as possible for our residents, making Newstone House a home from home.” – April King, Home Manager
The residents and staff of our care home in Sturminster Newton 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.
Newstone House 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 home has a dedicated dementia community that 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.
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.
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.
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 Newstone House. Here are some of their recent highlights.
“Newstone is incredibly well-run and has an amazing team of dedicated, professional and approachable staff. I have acted for a number of residents and they are all happy, occupied and very well looked after.”
“I just wanted to thank the team so much for my relative’s care. She had a great time with you and there was peace of mind for me – we really have found a special place with you guys.”
“The level of care extended to my Father was exceptional. All the staff, medical, care, hospitality, activities, cleaning and admin all showed my Dad and indeed our whole family a great deal of affection and respect. Newstone House is a wonderful place for anyone to live, it does not feel like a care home, it feels like ‘home’. You gave my Father great dignity in his last days, right to the end. We were particularly touched by the staff’s ‘guard of honour’ when Dad was collected by the undertaker. Thank you.”
“Thank you so much for putting on the fantastic ’70s party that we all enjoyed recently. It was lovely to see so many happy, smiling faces and some energetic dancing too! You’re all doing a wonderful job with our relatives. “
“A sincere thank you to all of you for everything you have done for Dad during his time at Newstone House. He has been very happy and settled with you, which has been such a relief for us as a family. He especially loved the minibus trips out and about, and we really appreciate the care and kindness shown by everyone who was involved in his care and wellbeing.”
“May I take this opportunity to thank you and all the staff for your support of our relative whilst he was at Newstone House. I was especially taken by the thoughtfulness and care shown, not only to our relative, but to all the wider family as well. Your staff made sure he didn’t suffer at all in his final days. Knowing this has given the family great comfort. Thank you.”
Finding the right care home for a loved one is about trust. At Newstone House, you can be confident in the quality of care we provide.
