Dementia is different for everyone, so the care we give to our residents is tailored too. Our care is led by residents, not by a routine.
Every member of our team has undergone dementia training to understand what it’s like to live with dementia and how best to comfort someone who has dementia.
At Hartismere Place, we enable residents to maintain the quality of living they enjoy and sometimes even improve residents physically. We have found when people come to our home their appetite improves and they are more engaged, through holistic approaches such as namaste care which involves a range of physical, sensory, and emotional approaches.
We take the time to get to know you and your loved one; this starts from our very first conversation. We get to know what will settle them when moving in and little things they appreciate, such as if they have orange juice with their tablets or the genre of music they listen to.
We find out everything about them, their life story and personality, so we know what will calm them and ensure they are happy. No two days are the same for residents at Hartismere Place.Read more
Our immediate surroundings can have a huge impact on our quality of life. Hartismere Place has been purpose built with dementia in mind.

The residents on our dementia suite can enjoy their own dedicated garden, a space to enjoy and a place where they have their say on how they would like it to look.Read more
Our people are chosen because of their passion, attitude, and caring nature.

Our specialist training gives our team a better understanding of how the brain works and how dementia affects the brain, and this helps the team relate to residents and give the best care possible.Read more
At Hartismere Place, we are there for families as well as residents. Our team do everything we can to support and reassure families. We understand seeing a loved one change can be difficult and heart-breaking, and we are here if you need a listening ear.

We also work with local support services and key members of the local community; we often host informative events on a wide range of subjects such as understanding dementia and falls prevention, to share our knowledge and expertise.Read more

We understand people’s anxieties about moving a loved one into a care home. That’s why we make a promise to every new customer about what they can expect from any Care UK home across the UK.
We are proud to be the most awarded care home provider for the last two years, with more outstanding rated homes than any other provider, as rated by the Care Quality Commission in England and the Care Inspectorate in Scotland.
We work with residents and relatives to get their regular feedback, in meetings in each home, through surveys, or just in day to day conversations. Our people are recruited for their positive and caring personalities as much as for their skills and feel their day has been a success simply when they see residents smiling and enjoying life. Ultimately, all our care is person-centred – everything we do is tailored to the individual’s needs, preferences and interests.
Absolutely. We care for older people who have a variety of needs, from ongoing healthcare needs to dementia and mental health challenges. We provide residential and nursing care, so you can rest assured that your father will receive the best of care. We also help residents to continue to enjoy a great lifestyle, including doing lifelong hobbies, while discovering new interests and enjoying superb food.
Because we provide such a broad range of services, we can support residents with very high intensity needs. This means that, as a person’s condition changes, they can stay in the same familiar home environment supported by people they know and trust.
We will always ensure that we support and provide the best quality care for your loved one from residential, dementia through to nursing and palliative care. We will always inform you of the changes in your loved ones needs and discuss the options with you.
Yes, we can. The majority of our homes provide specialist dementia care in dedicated dementia suites. These suites have their own dining area and lounge, as well as a number of en-suite bedrooms and are designed to minimise hustle and bustle, which people living with dementia can find unsettling. The staff who work in these areas have specialist dementia training and experience and can cater for residents with these very specific, high level needs.
Yes, the majority of Care UK homes do provide quality short term respite care. Many family carers find it a helpful option if they need time to themselves. It’s also a good ‘taster’ for your loved one of what permanent care would be like. Fees vary from home to home and will depend on your loved one’s needs, so the best option is to contact the home you’re interested in to get a clear idea of cost.
We understand people may feel more comfortable with a carer who is the same gender when receiving personal care and we will always do our utmost to ensure resident wishes are met.
Yes, Care UK provides specialist dementia care. We care for people living with all types of dementia. While we tend to care for older residents, we are able to care for those who find themselves having to live with the condition at a young age. Please do talk to the friendly team at your local Care UK home to find out how they can support you. They’re here to help.

Whenever you have a question about any aspect of your relative’s care, please bring it up as quickly as possible with any of the home team. Usually any issues can be resolved quickly and efficiently, and the earlier we know about it, the better. At Care UK we take quality extremely seriously and we strive to deliver exceptional care to all our residents, but sometimes things do go wrong. In the unlikely event that you have serious concerns about your loved one’s care, please talk to the home manager immediately who will put a plan in place to resolve the issue to your satisfaction.
There’s no ‘one size fits all’ approach to care ratios. Our care ratios are calculated to take into account the complexity level and general care needs of each resident, so these will vary from suite to suite in each home.
We are very pleased to be able to say that, as the Spring booster Covid vaccination is being provided to residents in our homes, the additional protection and our continued infection prevention and control measures means we can start ‘living with Covid’ and regain more normality in day-to-day care home life.Read more about our approach
