Welcome to Dovehaven Grove Care Home
Dovehaven Grove opened its doors as part of the Dovehaven family in May 2020. Before which the home underwent a complete refurbishment, to ensure it was brought right up to date with all amenities and decorated to the standard to which our residents and their families would wish.
Dovehaven Grove provides care for 55 residents living with dementia who require residential care.
Located in Bamber Bridge, the home is situated next to scenic Withy Grove Park. Although the home is at the end of an impressive driveway, it is very easily accessible to local shops, GP surgeries, cafes and bars. Residents and their families enjoy having such amenities at hand, so that they can enjoy time out and about in the local community, when possible.
Preston, Chorley and Leyland are on the doorstep and very easily accessible from the main motorway network.
We enjoy some beautifully appointed dining rooms, lounges and other communal areas. Our library is certainly a popular place for residents to visit, as is our beauty salon, which is very well appointed. On every floor residents have places to socialise, dine and participate in activities together or continue personal hobbies.
All bedrooms are large, ensuite and beautifully decorated. We very much encourage our residents to personalise their own bedrooms, bringing items and belongings, to ensure that their rooms feel 'just like home'.
Friends and family are welcome to visit at any time. We also have a specially constructed 'visitor pod' so that we are able to facilitate safe family visiting, whatever the current guidelines may be.
The health, well-being and happiness of our ‘family’ of residents, is always our number one priority.
Dovehaven Grove is a residential care home, we care for residents living with dementia.
Our dementia care is delivered in a person centred way, considering the resident and their background, their family and their choices. We also understand that care requirements will change and we are mindful to ensure those changing needs are identified.
Everyone at Dovehaven Grove is respected as an individual. The team in the home understand that the needs of every resident are different.
All of our residents enjoy their own care plan, tailored specifically for them. 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.
The respite care we provide is ideal for those looking for extra care and support in a relaxing and homely environment - whether its following a recent illness, or there is a need for a 'holiday stay' in order that a carer might take a break.
Our activity programme is designed to include and actively support our resident’s hobbies and interests. The whole team participate in meaningful and therapeutic pastimes to encourage social participation and to encourage gentle exercise for the body and mind. Reminiscence therapy forms the basis of many of our conversations and activities with our resident’s.
All Dovehaven care homes use 'Oomph! On Demand' to support resident exercise, hobbies and personal interests.
