A real home has as much personality as the people who live there. That’s why we’ve made The Wimborne a place you’d be proud of and happy to live in – just as you would your own home.
The Wimborne Care Home is situated near to the village of Wimborne Minister, about 10 miles north of Bournemouth. Surrounded by picturesque Dorset countryside, Wimborne Minister offers a number of shops, restaurants, pubs, and amenities – including the Tivoli Theatre and cinema.A home to be proud of
Our home is set across two floors, and there is a TV lounge, tasteful conservatory and large dining room on the ground floor, as well as ample outdoor space, meaning peace and quiet is never far away.
We offer brighterkind care – a person-centred approach that is delivered through quality care, recreation and activities, and food and dining.
brighterkind has been awarded 'Residential Care Provider of the year 2017'. Judges described our ‘Magic Moments’ and ‘Wishing Well’ activities as 'inspirational'.
Every brighterkind home now has a Magic Moments Club which provides a vast range of activities and fun things to do that are open to all of our residents.
The idea behind Magic Moments is that just because someone moves into a care home doesn't mean that the things they love doing should suddenly stop – quite the contrary, we believe our residents should have the opportunity to love every day, by doing the things that they have always loved as well as trying new things along the way.
Magic moments are unique to each individual and so it is important that the Magic Moments programme reflects this, tailoring activities to meet each resident’s individual needs in the best possible way, whilst at the same time enjoying the company of others.
With 26 bedrooms offering residential and nursing care, we think carefully about the type of room each resident needs. The majority of our rooms are en-suite but there is also a bathroom and shower room in the home for residents to use with or without assistance.Everything you need
All our rooms have recently been refurbished to the highest specifications with new furniture, soft furnishings and fittings. We have designed the rooms with your comfort in mind. Your bedroom furniture consists of: an appropriate bed suitable to your needs, wardrobe, bedside table with lockable drawer, armchair and other furniture suitable to the size of the room. Your bed linen and towels are provided by the home.Personalise your space
We understand that moving into The Wimborne will be a considerable transition, but one we try to make feel as easy as possible. Your room is your own personal space, which is why we encourage you to personalise it if you like, by hanging your favourite pictures or bringing small pieces of furniture.FAQWhat changes can I make to the room?
We encourage people to make the rooms their own. Quite a few of our residents will ask us to take out pieces of our furniture to make room for some of their own from home. The choice is yours.
