About the Home


The residents find the traditional style of the house warm and comforting. We have 44 peaceful bedrooms at Brunswick, many with ensuites and recent renovations. There are two comfortable lounges and a conservatory for residents to choose from, which they are also welcome to entertain relatives in.

The grounds of the house have beautiful recently refurbished garden, courtyard, and a memorial garden. The gardens are well kept and are enjoyed by all in the spring and summer.


Residents may prefer to relax and rest or to be involved in all the activities, which take place on a daily basis during the week. We also go on regular outings to the local areas of interest. Many of the activities have been suggested by residents and we continue to encourage this practice. Ideas on any kind of improvement are welcome at all times at Brunswick House. The residents are our main priority and we do everything within our power to make them feel that this is their home.


Meals provided at Brunswick House are freshly prepared by our in-house cooks on a daily basis. Dishes are varied and balanced and the kitchen staff provide residents with choices at every meal time.

We accommodate all dietary requirements and adapt meals dependent on each resident’s needs.

Types of Care

Residential Care

Residential care is for older people who are finding it increasingly difficult to manage at home without additional help and support.

Residents will not only be supported with personal care but our devoted staff will take over all the everyday tasks of laundry, cooking, gardening and housekeeping, allowing the residents more time to relax and enjoy themselves in a comfortable and safe environment.

It is our priority to make everything as seamless as possible in the moving process so that your loved one maintains their independence, dignity and identity at all times. Choosing the right care home for a loved one can be an overwhelming task and we will be there to support you throughout the whole process.

We encourage friends and family to visit as often as they can and everyone is of course invited to come along to the parties and events we regularly hold for the residents.

At Buckland Care we take time to get to know each resident, tailoring the care we provide to suit each individual person.

Our dedicated team is proud of the facilities available to residents, and work hard to ensure they retain as much independence as possible but rest assured, we will be there 24 hours a day should they need us.

Nursing Care

At many of our homes we provide nursing care for older people with health problems. The care is 24 hours and is delivered by our experienced nursing teams who are both compassionate and professional, ensuring your loved one is looked after at all times.

There is a Registered Nurse on duty at all times, supported by the care staff, who all regularly attend training to keep up-to-date on all levels of care. When needed, our nurses will seek expert advice from visiting practitioners such as chiropodists, GPs and specialist consultants.

Our nursing equipment, such as profiling beds and moving & handling equipment, is updated frequently to ensure we can cater to our nursing residents’ specialist needs in the safest possible way.

We take into consideration each individual’s physical and emotional requirements and do our utmost to create an environment in which our residents feel comfortable and at ease.

Dementia Care

Choosing a care home for someone living with dementia is a major decision. You need to be sure that your loved one will be in an understanding, nurturing environment with professionals who have the experience and knowledge to safely care for them.

At all Buckland Care homes that is exactly what we offer. We do everything we can to make our residents feel at ease, with tailored features for those living with dementia. Every carer is trained to care for dementia patients and our homes have been adapted to aid those living with a dementia-related illness.

Respite Care

Buckland Care homes provide respite care for people who may only require a short stay in a care home. Respite care is an invaluable service for those who care full-time for their loved ones, providing them with a chance to take a break from daily responsibilities.

Some residents use it as a way to trial the home before moving in full term, to see if they will feel settled and at home. The length of time residents stay is flexible and can be anything from a week to a few months. We will work with you and deliver a high level of professional care to all residents no matter how long they are staying with us.

Palliative or End of Life Care

Ultimately, we all want to end our lives in quiet dignity, free from pain, in a place where we feel at home. The final stages of a person’s life can be a complicated and emotionally overwhelming experience for the family.

We aim to control pain and ease the suffering of our residents, ensuring that we make their lives as fulfilling as possible through to the end. Buckland Care also provides tailored emotional support and practical guidance for families and friends throughout end of life care.

Day Care

In all of our homes at Buckland Care, we offer day care for those who wish to socialise with their peers and be looked after during the day but return to their own home in the evening.

The benefits of this are plentiful: allowing full time carers to rest; socialising with like-minded people and keeping the body and mind active; relieving oneself of the hassle of personal care and home-cooked meal preparation; a simple change of scene. With our welcoming staff on hand all day, individuals can feel safe and secure within our friendly care homes and enjoy a different environment to their own home.


Many of the exceptional staff have been at Brunswick for a long time and are devoted to the wellbeing of the residents. They are considerate, accommodating and supportive, not just towards the residents but towards their families as well.

  • Alison Minto

    After completing her nursing qualifications, Alison spent the initial nine years working in emergency care, gaining invaluable skills in handling critical situations. However, her genuine calling led her back to working with the elderly, where she believes she can make a profound impact on their lives.

    For the past five years, Alison has been a valuable member of the Brunswick House team, initially serving as a dedicated night nurse.

As a supportive parent, she often finds herself standing on the sidelines, braving all types of weather conditions, to cheer on her children during their matches. This commitment to her family reflects her nurturing nature and her ability to extend care and support beyond the healthcare environment.

It was a complete blessing we had all of you, it made things easier for mum and me to cope when she first came here. So thank you all, bless you and keep up the good work!
