Our Home

Extended from a fine Georgian home, Whitecliffe House stands comfortably amongst the fine, traditional buildings of Blandford Forum, a quintessential English market town at the crossroads of ancient Dorset roads. Offering residential and nursing care, Whitecliffe takes its place unassumingly and easily as part of this prosperous and close-knit community, regularly welcoming other townsfolk to join the residents into its warm and sociable life.

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.

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.

Colten Champions

Every year, we celebrate the hard work and dedication of the team members across the Colten group who consistently deliver above and beyond expectations. Colleagues, residents, and their relatives can all put forward their nominations, before the finalists are invited to a glittering gala ceremony at Bournemouth's Highcliff Marriott Hotel, hosted by none other than TV's Dr Hilary Jones.

We are very happy to say Katie Laing, one of our Health Care Assistants here at Whitecliffe House, won the 'Resident Engagement' award this year, with the judges commending her on her unwavering dedication to the residents, not only during her working hours, but also in her own time too.

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 Whitecliffe 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.
