Queen Charlotte is a large, detached Georgian style residence with stunning high windows and ornate featured ceilings. On the semi-rural edge to the west of Weymouth, the home is ideally located, just moments away from the coast.
Our ‘person-centred’ approach means that each and every one of our residents is treated as an individual and given love, attention and a unique programme of care according to their needs. Our magnificent home, set in stunning grounds, is always open to visitors and our dedicated and professional staff are always on hand to help and advise – visitors are as welcome here as they were when the resident lived in their own house, at whatever time of the day.
Each and every one of our Kingsley care homes is unique in its own way. However at each of our care homes we all have a common set of highly respected and award-winning features embedded within the culture, and the way we care for our residents makes a remarkable difference. Our daily emphasis is on the care that our residents need, whether that be physical, emotional or mental health.
Residents who are experiencing memory loss benefit from arguably the most enlightened approach to dementia care that exists in the UK at the present time: our truly person-centred approach. Our organisation, Kingsley Healthcare, recently invested into Dementia Care Matters, a world renowned consultancy group in the dementia care field, who aid us in excelling at providing quality dementia care. We are one of five homes within the Kingsley group currently chosen to work towards the prestigious status of ‘Butterfly Service’.
More than just simply providing dementia training, this approach is about a change in philosophy, which creates a positive culture and focuses on the quality of life and relationships. It’s best summed up by the saying, ‘Our residents don’t live in our facility – we work in their home’. We develop programmes of assistance and care that suit the needs and wishes of each resident as an individual, and our approach to care is, we believe, second to none.
