Specialist Dementia Care
Looking for a first class dementia care for your loved one?
Give them the gift of safe, understanding and endlessly patient care at Prospect House
Choosing a care home for your loved one, especially when they have dementia, can be a difficult business. The best way to assess if a home is right for your loved one is to visit and get a feel for the atmosphere, see how well the residents are treated, and what the staff are like with them.
We'd love you to come and visit Prospect House to see how we measure up. You're very welcome to call in anytime. In the meantime we've listed below answers to some of the questions you may have. If there's anything we've missed please feel free to call us on 01948 800692.
Will you be able to cope with my loved one's dementia?
For most people who are living with dementia Prospect House will be a great choice. It’s primarily a luxury residential care home that has the expertise to deal with dementia for those people whose condition may be more advanced.
The home has two dedicated suites, providing 24 hour specialist care for residents who are living with dementia. Dividing the home into smaller groups of residents in this way will help your loved one to quickly feel comfortable and at home, and helps our staff to truly get to know them and their unique needs.
The highly skilled, specialist dementia team members, led by mental health nurses, understand the challenges of living with dementia and will gently accompany your loved one on their journey whilst being encouraging, supporting and reassuring at all times. Our two suites have features which help to assist with the progressive nature of dementia. These include safe and secure gardens where your loved one can enjoy the fresh air and outdoor activity, and safe internal walkways where the overriding aim is to offer a warm, homely environment.
We recognise that excellent care for your loved one is as much about them enjoying life and looking forward to the days ahead as it is them being in an environment where fun, laughter and friendship are encouraged, promoting their physical and emotional well-being. They will be supported to participate in as many of the many social activities as they choose or are able to. Our well organised and scheduled activities programme alongside our Namaste Care programme, which has enhanced the lives of our residents including those with advanced dementia, will help create the right balance for them.
If you are unsure of whether Prospect House is the right care home to accommodate your loved one's needs please feel free to call the Home Manger on 01948 800692 for a confidential chat.

How do I know they will be well looked after?
We feel the best people to tell you the sort of care your loved one will receive at Prospect House are those who have experienced it. So, here's what just a few of our many grateful families have to say about their loved one's stay here.
This is the third home that he has lived in and is by far the best
My father has been in Prospect House for five months now and has settled into a routine thanks to the patience and kindness of all the staff who support him.
This is the third home that he has lived in and is by far the best. Residents needing EMI nursing care are treated with great dignity and respect. Carers are always positive and professional and concerns are quickly addressed when raised.
I visit my father almost daily and I am constantly impressed by the quality of the food, the speed with which his laundry is washed and the phenomenal care that he is shown/receives. It is all very reassuring for my family.
All the staff and carers gave her 100% of what she needed
My mother had been a resident at Prospect House for over 4 years and was suffering from mobility problems and dementia. She died on the 11th of December 2015, and my sister and I could not have wished for better care than the care she received for her end of life.
All the staff and carers gave her 100% of what she needed and were a tremendous support to her, and us, at a very difficult time.
I cannot speak highly enough, and really would recommend Prospect House as a very efficient, genuine and caring home.
The care has been outstanding
This review relates to both Alzheimer's wing and the nursing home. My mother is in the "garden room" with advanced Alzheimer's (since Sept 2014) The care has been outstanding, mum settled remarkably quickly and in all the visits that I or my siblings have made (unannounced), we have never had cause for concern.
We feel mum is loved and cared for and her needs met. The staff are always open to questions or suggestions. My father with great physical needs but completely sound mentally was well cared for on two respite short visits.
The staff are so kind and helpful
My husband has dementia and goes to Prospect House for day care one or two days a week to give me some me time. I can change the day if I wish. The staff are so kind and helpful.
We are so grateful that he was able to be cared for here
My father was cared for at Prospect House for the last eight months of his life until he died peacefully in his sleep.
When he moved to Prospect House he had advanced dementia and so was unable to understand his own needs or situation. It was very difficult to make a decision on his behalf but we are so grateful that he was able to be cared for here as the staff were extremely kind, competent and knowledgeable and ensured that he was well looked after and that he received the help and support that he needed.
Other visitors often commented on the good care they observed. We were always confident that our father was safe, that the home was well staffed and that the residents were regularly monitored both day and night. My father seemed to adjust well to living there and to appreciate the care he was receiving.
The home itself is beautiful, always clean and odour free
Cannot recommend this care home enough. All staff are extremely caring and professional.
The home itself is beautiful, always clean and odour free. Dementia care is great. Nothing ever is any trouble for any of staff. Have had experience of a number of care homes and found this one outstanding.
What will their room be like?
Your loved one's room will be extremely well appointed and tastefully decorated to the highest standard.
However, it's really important that someone who is living with dementia has familiar surroundings so they feel calm and relaxed. So, we'd love you to bring their own ornaments, treasured mementos and small furniture items to make their room their own. We'll even re-decorate it in line with their home decor to truly make it feel like home, if you'd like.
All rooms are spacious and bright, from both natural and artificial light. This light and airy feel contributes to a feeling of calm, as does the view of the gardens and countryside beyond the home.
Who will be looking after them?
