Steepleton Manor: Perhaps not How you Imagined a Care Home Would be

As you stroll around the immaculately kept grounds set in 6 acres or pass through the impressive doorway of Steepleton Manor you could be forgiven for thinking that you are entering a top class country hotel, rather than a care home.

Dating from 1870 the Grade II listed Portland stone residence boasts a wealth of historical features including fine stucco ceilings. The rich history includes a series of owners and a spell when it was home to British and American servicemen in the run up to D-Day.

Despite the elegant surroundings, the atmosphere at Steepleton Manor couldn’t be more relaxed and a ‘home away from home.’

Facilities and Activities

The accommodation offers a choice of single or double ensuite rooms and private lounges and kitchenettes. Residents are able and encouraged to live as independently as they wish. To help maintain a healthy and active lifestyle there’s also an outdoor swimming pool, croquet lawn, kitchen garden and a range of outdoor activities.

Located near the picturesque Dorset village of Winterbourne Steepleton, the manor has a well-stocked library, shop, and hairdressing salon, and serves fine food with a focus on nutrition and balanced healthy diet.  There’s nearby public transport and the home has its own mini bus to ensure everyone can enjoy a varied programme of visits and leisure activities.

The standard of care provided at the home matches the quality of the surroundings with physio and other therapies offered to help residents continue living life to the full.

In addition to luxury long-term residential care, Steepleton Manor offers nursing care, day care and holiday care. Within the sumptuous surroundings residents also benefit from the support they need to live every day as they would wish.

If you are looking for either long or short-term residential care, we would be delighted to show you around. Please contact us to arrange a suitable time on 01305 300 161 or click here for more information.
