Pennine View offers residential care for individuals 65 and over living with mild and moderate dementia. The home scores 9.5 on Carehome.co.uk and has a CQC rating of Good in all categories.

Since purchasing Pennine View in 2021, the 3rd floor has been closed to residents. The Dovehaven team have been working tirelessly over the past eighteen months to fully rejuvenate the space. All thirteen of the ensuite bedrooms have been redecorated, as well as the hair salon, lounge and dining hall all receiving a fresh lick of paint, new fixtures, furnishing and finishing touches.

The opening of the floor marks the end of a period of change for the home. Pennine View welcomed the new registered home manager, Emma Willoughby in Month, Year. Since joining, the home has gone from strength to strength, receiving a CQC rating of Good in May, 2023. When the home welcomes the first residents back to the floor, it will signal the beginning of a new chapter for Pennine View.

Located in Accrington, the home is at the heart of the community and has many strong links with local businesses, schools and shops. Residents at Pennine View often enjoy visits from local nurseries and other youth groups, where they play games, do crafts and garden (weather permitting!).

The new floor will prepare and serve the same great menu that the home is known for, including old favourites like pies, roasts and sticky toffee pudding. Created by our in house chefs, meals are always packed with quality, seasonal and nutritious ingredients. With the reassurance that dietitians oversee the menu preparation, we guarantee our meals are as nourishing as they are appealing and delicious.
