Kingland House

Residential Home

Kingland House is a peaceful and picturesque residential home situated 10 metres from the stunning Poole Park. The park features an impressive lake complete with swans, geese and other wildlife as well as a miniature railway and boating facilities in the summer months. 

The house itself was converted from four houses which adds to its homely feel. A five minute stroll will take you to Poole town centre and the Dolphin shopping centre. The famous Sandbanks beach and charming Quay and Old Town are just a few minutes drive away.

About the Home

Accommodation

Our home has two recently refurbished lounges, one quiet and one for activities to allow residents to choose their preference dependent on their mood. The grounds of the house have beautiful landscaped gardens which residents can admire from the airy dining room conservatory or enjoy in the warmer months. Residents are encouraged to bring as much as they like from home to help them settle in and be in familiar surroundings.

Activities

Our activities co-ordinators are dynamic and immensely practiced in inspiring and encouraging the elderly to take part and socialise. Some of the most popular activities are Quiz Time and Exercises to Music. The residents love going on outings such as boat trips, regular walks into Poole Park and to Moors Valley. We also have regular entertainers, school visits and performers at Kingland House.

Cuisine

At Kingland we pride ourselves on the high standard of fresh food produced on a daily basis. Nutrition is a very important aspect of keeping healthy and we ensure that residents are receiving all their vital vitamins and nutrients, no matter what their dietary requirements are.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Staff

Our staff at Kingland House are extremely compassionate and we encourage them first and foremost to treat each resident as an individual and to consistently take into account their specific needs. We recruit each staff member carefully, ensuring that we take on only the highest quality of carers.

    Rachael Hodgkinson
    Administrator

    Rachael joined Kingland House in September 2021 and although has never worked in a care home, loves that this role provides the perfect balance of interaction with residents and their families and office work. She was pleasantly surprised by the strong family vibes at Kingland House, at how welcoming everyone is and how well she has fitted in. She has strong background in administration and has worked in various offices roles since leaving University. When not at work Rachael loves to spend time with her family and friends.

The staff at Kingland were always cheerful and willing to go the extra mile [for my father]. They took great care of him and his health improved no end. We would have no hesitation in recommending the home!
