    Our Services


    Short-Term Respite

    For some, a short break away from it all is all that is needed, and at Delph House, that is exactly what we provide. Our short-term respite option provides our Service Users with complete peace of mind during their brief stay. Each stay must be a minimum of two weeks with longer stays provided if necessary.

    During your stay, you’ll enjoy a warm and comfortable environment, as well as 24-hour care. As one of the finest residential care homes Poole has seen, you’ll never want to leave.

    Residential Care

    If you’re seeking residential care homes for a permanent placement, then you’ve come to the right place. We provide homely accommodation that includes 24-hour care, meals and drinks. When you first move into Delph House, an agreed plan will be created that will be tailored to your specific needs.

    This care plan will detail your likes and dislikes, dietary requirements, personal hygiene needs, social and spiritual needs and much more. It’ll also involve a risk assessment, manual handling guidelines, specific instructions related to healthcare and medication, etc.

    Most Poole residential care homes only go so far; but at Delph House, we always aim to go further. Our staff page, mentioned above, goes into more detail about our care plans so be sure to have a read through this before you make your decision.

    “My grandmother received an excellent level of care here over the last year. The premises has a warm, friendly, homely atmosphere. The staff are amazing. They build strong, warm, friendships with all the residents. There is a wide variety of activities planned to keep residents engaged and meet their social, mental requirements. My grandmother also received excellent nursing care to meet her physical needs and was treated with dignity and respect. The food is great. Tasty and varied and adapted to residents needs. As a family, we were made very welcome to visit anytime. Comparing this to a previous location my Nan stayed at I feel this is a great place and the team of staff really go the extra mile to make a difference and enrich the days of the residents.”
