Our Care

Our Care

Established in 1989, The Dower House has been providing top quality care for more than 30 years. We understand that there is far more to care than just meeting your medical needs. That’s why we create the best possible physical environment with emphasis on your privacy, dignity and respect at all times. We want everyone to feel at home at The Dower House.

Short-stay rooms are available for a minimum of a 1 week stay and can usually be booked at short notice, although more advance notice will ensure availability. Many people find a short stay at The Dower House can help you, and your family, experience our wonderful services and country-house hotel ambience, before making a long-term commitment.

Short Stays

If you need respite care, recuperation or rehabilitation following illness or an operation or general convalescence, you will enjoy our comfortable, fully furnished short-stay rooms. Alternatively, these rooms offer the perfect place for a peaceful holiday with the benefit of personal care and support.

Nursing Care

The Dower House employs a very high ratio of nursing staff to residents. This means that you will get to know the staff who take care of you. We are proud of our extremely low staff turnover, which allows us to deliver excellent continuity of care. For your safety and peace of mind, a nurse-call system operates throughout the building ensuring you can easily contact staff 24 hours a day.

Palliative Care

Palliative Care is the delivery of individualised and person-centred care to improve your quality of life and make you as comfortable as possible during a life limiting illness. Good palliative care is achieved through the effective management of pain and other distressing symptoms which can occur at any time and is not restricted to care at the end of your life. It includes physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual care and is individual to your needs.

Respite Care

If you need regular help and support to remain living independently in your own home, you may occasionally need periods of respite care. For example, if you are cared for by a friend or family member and they plan to take a holiday.
