Welcome to Argyle Park
Providing professional and kind residential care for people living with dementia, Argyle Park offers both a comfortable 'forever home' and also welcomes those in need of a shorter respite stay.
Open to residents now, following a major refurbishment, Argyle Park is a purpose built care home with a large ground floor lounge, dining area and conservatory, with open access to the safe, secure and beautiful sensory garden.
Offering freely accessible outside space for residents to enjoy, our sensory garden is a real feature of the home. Spending time outside allows our residents to enjoy the expertly designed garden to the fullest in the fresh air and sunshine ,with the company of their new 'family' of residents.
With a lift to access all floors, beautifully decorated ensuite bedrooms are available and enjoy the views of the local quiet residential area.
We very much encourage our residents to personalise their own bedrooms with their own special items, to ensure that it feel 'just like home'.
Friends and family are welcome to visit at any time. We have a specially constructed 'visitor pod' so that we are able to facilitate safe family visiting, whatever current guidelines might be.
The health, well-being and happiness of our ‘family’ of residents, is always our number one priority.
Argyle Park supports and provides the best of residential care for residents living with dementia . Our team is committed to providing person centred care ensuring we are responsive and show compassion to the individual needs of all. We also understand that care requirements will change and we are mindful to ensure those changing needs are identified.
All of our residents have their own care plan, tailored specifically for them. This allows us to build care around their preferences, lifestyles and routines. Everything we do is driven by this genuinely caring person centred approach, working together with friends and family to ensure the care experience is as expected and most importantly, helping residents stay healthy and safe.
Always working very hard to create and maintain that feeling of 'home', all team members work hard to get to know residents for the people they are. They learn about their lives, families and what makes them laugh! This 'life history', once known, helps everyone to come together and the sense of 'family' is created.
The respite care we provide is ideal for those looking for extra care and support in a relaxing and homely environment - whether it's following a recent illness or in need of time away from their own home. Let us know if you would like to organise a respite stay, we are more than happy to help.
Everyone is encouraged to take part in the many daily activities offered in the home. Our Activity Co-ordinator is dedicated to ensuring that residents activities are designed to engage people's attention and interest. Being engaged in meaningful activities ensures residents feel comfortable, safe and 'at home', helping our residents to relax, laugh, have fun and enjoy the company of others, just as 'family'.
Home Manager Amanda O'Connor leads our well trained care team who provide professional, but friendly memory care, tailor made to reflect a residents care needs and choices.
All staff are trained in dementia awareness and person-centred care. Each member of our care team possesses the necessary skills, experience, training and qualities to ensure that the delivery of care for those living with dementia, is kind and appropriate for them. The ability to make a resident feel at ease is an essential skill which all of our care team possess.
Dovehaven have a robust induction and ongoing training for all team members to ensure that they have all of the skills and knowledge they need to provide expert dementia care, with confidence. Of course, our Home Manager and our Deputy Manager are always on hand to give support and advice to team members and family members alike.
The team at Argyle Park are dedicated to ensuring that the home is a kind and safe place for residents to live and that all of the residents needs are met with friendliness and reassurance.
Looking out onto our sensory garden, our conservatory dining room is light and bright and a very pleasant place to enjoy every mealtime.
Enjoying the friendliest of atmospheres, all mealtimes are happy, sociable occasions making our residents feel very much ‘at home'. With our dining tables always perfectly set, our residents can enjoy the best of dining experiences.
The daily menu includes old favourites like pies, roasts and sticky toffee pudding and is packed with quality, seasonal and nutritious ingredients. Created by chefs, with the reassurance that dietitians oversee the menu preparation, we guarantee our meals are as nourishing as they are appealing and delicious. Our menu is varied, tempting and reflects residents preferences.
We pride ourselves on ensuring that our menu choices are available, in the most appropriately palatable way, for all needs. Our meal choices are sure to tempt even the smallest appetite, so that we can be sure nutritional needs can be met for every resident.
We also enjoy hosting various food related events throughout the year. There is no doubt that the fun of a themed event which is reflected in the menu of the day, gives our residents the opportunity to eat some very enjoyable traditional meals but, also try something a little different.
Of course, there is a choice of refreshments available to residents, at all times. It is as important for our residents to drink enough fluid as well as to eat well.
Homemade scones and cakes are available daily from the kitchen and residents very much enjoy having afternoon tea!
In addition to mealtimes, drinks, fruit, snacks and suppers are freely available for all to enjoy.

What people say
During this very difficult time the care my Mum has received is excellent.
Staff are caring, informative and professional. We feel as a family that our relative is part of their family and they genuinely care for her wellbeing.
I cannot speak highly enough of the carers. They are all gentle, they treat you as an individual and nothing is too much trouble. The food is excellent, particularly lunch which is always a cooked meal and in my opinion, is restaurant quality.
I commend the amazing manager and her fantastic team, I cannot praise them highly enough. There is such a warm, friendly atmosphere inside the care home and it is obvious how much they care about everybody.
100% exceptional in every way
My father-in-law came into Argyle Park Nursing Home just over 4 weeks ago. The staff have been so lovely, really friendly and helpful. He seems to have really settled, is well fed, clean and cared for.
