The Old Vicarage
is committed to offering the best possible care for everyone they support.
Every resident has a personal care plan that outlines what and who is important
to them, from their perspective. The plan will reflect how the person wants to
live and how they want to be supported. We will maintain their welfare and
promote the resident's well-being by taking into account all of their needs,
physical, mental, social and emotional. As one resident put it “I came here to
live not to die”.
staff have either obtained or are working towards nationally recognised
qualifications and undergo annual updates in end of life care, dementia,
dignity, medication and safety.
Set in its own secluded, beautifully
landscaped gardens, woodland and meadow, and with stunning views overlooking
the Dorset countryside, it’s hard to resist the charms of the Old Vicarage. As
soon as you step through the front door of this charming country house, you’ll
discover an oasis of comfort, warmth, calm and relaxation.
The Old Vicarage has 40
comfortable, modern en-suite rooms, all with free Wi-Fi and telephones.
Our highly trained staff
ensure that everything - from the mouth-watering food and drink and the stylishly cosy bedrooms to the wide range of activities - will make the Old
Vicarage truly a home from home.
The Old Vicarage has won over 30 national and regional
awards over the last few years.
Annie values every member of her staff and likes to
celebrate their work and achievements. She frequently nominates them for local
and national awards, and individual staff members have achieved regular success
over the years. “recognising them in this way has repaid me a thousand fold in
the way they carry out their work” says Annie.
Annie herself won the very first Winner of Winners in the
Skills for Care National Accolades, and has been awarded a MBE in 2007 for
services to the care sector in the South West.
