Considering a care home, for yourself or a relative?
A stress free, comfortable and companionable later life beckons, in a Colten Care home
If you are considering life in a care home either for yourself or for a loved one, now or planning ahead, please call us at Colten Care for a chat. We make our commitment to you: Our promise to cherish your spirit of independence means life in a Colten Care home will be stress free, comfortable and companionable - and for many residents, truly it can be fun too.
Colten Care has over 30 years experience of building and managing care homes
Colten Care is an independent family business, with care homes across the South of England. We have more than 30 years’ experience in the design, build and management of care homes. The design of each purpose-built home reflects our many years of experience in operating the homes to ensure the design is built around residents’ needs.
Our mission is to provide all the ingredients for later life to enable elderly people not only to be well cared for but also to enjoy fun and companionship and retain their dignity, right into the later stages of old age.
A residential, nursing or dementia care home for your needs, close to Lymington
Five of our homes are located in and around Lymington. Each of these homes has common features in that they all offer the highest standards of comfort and care provided by fully trained and really "caring" staff, but each is also slightly different in both character and appeal. Whilst all offer residential care and most can provide "respite", some are dedicated to dementia, others to general nursing or palliative care. Subject of course to availability at the time of enquiry.
The highest standards of accommodation with beautifully appointed bedrooms as well as gorgeously furnished and fitted living and dining areas, fine dining on home cooked quality food sourced locally where possible... the very best practice in clinical care for each individual resident...these are what you'd expect when you take the enormous step of moving from your own home into a care home.
When you're tired or confused, it's very comforting that there are kind, caring people around you who know what you need and what you like best, offering companionship and comfort at all times of day and night.
If you have been living alone and feeling quite lonely, there is a wonderful surprise in store because new friends await you, together with the reassurance of knowing that caring staff are on hand whenever you need them.
If you have become used to a fairly routine existence without much going on, you will find a whole host of activities awaiting you, for you to simply enjoy without having to make the effort to organise them! These range from arts, crafts and music related activities to excursions and outings and theatre trips. They're on offer and encouraged, but there's never any pressure to join in.
Respect and dignity
If you are worried about some of the things you've heard about care homes, life in a Colten Care home is as far removed from those reports as it's possible to be. You will never be pushed into doing something you don't want to do, only offered and encouraged. Our respect for your individual needs is total and your dignity our absolute priority.
Trial or respite
We encourage you to try out life in a Colten Care home with a short term stay. Sample life in one of our homes for a week or so, get the feel for what it's like and whether you feel comfortable with it.
If carers need a break - we call it "respite". Either way you can treat it as a trial.
Talk to us
Whatever your situation - son or daughter, husband or wife or indeed the person about to take this monumental step for yourself, talk to us at Colten Care. We will listen to what you have to say, discuss the options with you and help you to find the right home for your individual needs.
