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.

Our Partnership with New Forest Hospital Radio

Our partnership with New Forest Hospital Radio allows our residents to have their own regular radio request show.

'Request Collectors' will visit the home on an allocated day every month. Then, using flash drives, we will download the specially-produced show onto portable, rechargeable stereo sets designed for ease of use for older people, ready for the residents to listen to at their leisure in the lounges or in the comfort of their own bedrooms.

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 a celebrity guest! This year we have had to take into consideration the changing situation we find ourselves in and as suspected we had to cancel our Awards night. However, we still have winners!

Supporting Charities

Last year, despite the challenges we faced, Colten Care still raised over £14,000 for various charities, with Woodpeckers contributing £649.09.  Alongside money raised, we also supported local Foodbanks and local ICU's. This year, our home will be supporting Brockenhurst Pre-School.
