Described as a ‘home from home,’ Woodland Court is a charming three storey residential home situated on the outskirts of the bustling market town of Fareham, neighbouring Portchester and its medieval castle.
Our home is easily accessible with a train station nearby and a bus stop at the top of the driveway. The building was historically a home for children and a homely, warm ambience still remains.

About the Home
All of our rooms are quiet en suite singles aside from two large and comfortable shared rooms. Our communal areas are relaxing and inviting; the airy conservatory connected to the lounge is a popular feature. The interiors of the home have recently been updated and the residents consider the seaside theme in the dining room a highlight, paying tribute to the local beaches of Fareham.
Our garden is an attractive sweep of lawn in front of the house with seating and a calming water feature which our residents enjoy in the warmer months.
At Woodland Court we have an extensive list of entertainment and activities including regular singers, visiting libraries and even our own mobile tuck shop and ice cream van!
We also firmly believe that keeping the body active, even for those who are now less agile than they once were, can do wonders for the state of mind. As such, we have an activities co-ordinator, who has devised enjoyable pastimes to stimulate both body and mind.
Good quality, nutritious food is a vital component for health and well-being which is why the food at Woodland Court is locally sourced and freshly prepared each day.
Our cooks produce delicious dishes, providing a balanced and interesting menu whilst also catering to special diets and preferences.
Types of 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.
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.
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.
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.
Our practised team of staff are extremely attentive and compassionate and encourage residents to keep their independence as much as possible.

Holly began her career at Woodland Court in December 2022 and has quickly become a big part of the team. Prior to joining, Holly has a strong background in administration and bookkeeping with experience in a lot of different industries. Following years of working from home due to Covid, Holly wanted to get back to a people facing role so when the opportunity at Woodland court arose, it was a perfect fit.
Holly loves anything to do with numbers and in her spare time she loves up cycling, DIY and all things creative.
Great to visit again. We always know that our Dad is well looked after by you all and the staff are happy, cheerful and committed. We are very comfortable with our Dad being here. Thank you for giving us very valuable peace of mind.
