Colten Care 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.
We employ our own highly-skilled nurses to be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
This sets us apart from many other care operators who, over the last 10 years, have moved away from providing nursing care, instead relying on visiting community nurses.
We have always believed that nursing is an intrinsic part of elderly care, and our nurses play a crucial role in ensuring our “All About Me” philosophy of care is delivered to our residents.
They oversee the care of residents, delegating responsibility to senior care leads and carers whilst also taking a hands-on role in areas such as administering medication, keeping track of nutrition and fluids, managing wound care and much more.
Their presence in the home at all times of the day and night provides tremendous reassurance to residents and their families, knowing that a familiar face is on hand to provide whatever care they need, whenever they need it.
We treat every resident as an individual, and build individually tailored care plans focussed on the resident’s needs to ensure they feel safe, involved and supported.
Led by our nurses, a resident’s care plan makes sure the whole team is working toward the same goals, and it’s constantly reviewed so that it can be adapted to reflect changing needs and preferences.
Care planning is an on-going process. Our ‘All About Me’ care philosophy puts the resident at the heart of all we do, and their care plan sits centrally to this approach. Our nurses ensure residents’ physical and psychological needs are prioritised, and that their individual preferences are respected by everyone involved in their care.

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.
Dedicated Dementia Care
At Colten Care 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 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.
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.
