“Whitecliffe House really is home for all our residents. Our dedicated staff are proud to help them to live as happily and independently as possible.” – Chris Lee, Home Manager
The residents and staff of our care home in Blandford 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.
Whitecliffe House’s 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 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.
Although Whitecliffe House is not a dementia home, we are committed to supporting our residents to live meaningful and fulfilled lives, and that includes those living with the earlier stages of dementia or cognitive impairment.
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 Whitecliffe House. Here are some of their recent highlights.
” Thank you for all that you did to make his birthday such a happy occasion last Thursday. It was a delicious meal and a lovely cake which you arranged so beautifully for us. Thank you for making the day so special and sharing it with us.”
“I want to thank you and all your wonderful staff for four weeks of the most relaxing and special care at Whitecliffe House. Without exception everyone was special. I enjoyed being pampered – it was indeed a change for me. Thank you so much.”
“Excellent home in every way – kindness is beyond compare. Choice and presentation of all meals are superb, made like a five-star hotel! If it ever becomes a requirement, I would be very happy to become a full-time resident of this most excellent care home, for like a home it is, run by a super manager and his dedicated crew.”
“Thank you so much for Mum’s beautiful flowers and spectacular cake for her 99th birthday. Now she can enjoy her hundredth year!”
“I wish to thank you and all your staff for the care you showed my wife over the past two and a half years. She was a lovely, kind lady and I’m very proud of being her husband for the past 63 years. Once again, thank you so much for everything.”
“Excellent. I made friends with several residents. I enjoyed the minibus outings with the excellent driver who knew lots of routes and pointed out things of interest. The staff were all superb, helpful, caring and had time to chat (they told me they had been told to talk to residents and would not get into trouble for ‘slacking’). The surroundings were bright and cheerful and very welcoming. It was especially good that I could get advice from the nursing staff about the progress (or not) of my broken leg.”
Finding the right care home for a loved one is about trust. At Whitecliffe House, you can be confident in the quality of care we provide.
