Milford House Care Home in Salisbury

Milford House Care Home offers high quality 24-hour nursing care and personal support for older people who are no longer able to manage at home. Alongside this, we now offer respite care and short breaks for when you or a relative are in need of a break from your usual routine. Our skilled and experienced staff are committed to providing personalised care in a friendly and homely environment.

Whilst care is of paramount importance, we strive to provide the highest standard of services in all areas of life for residents – from catering to housekeeping. We offer a wide range of activities, which are varied to ensure they appeal to the diverse needs, likes and dislikes of those we support.

Originally built as a private home for the Earl of Ilchester, Milford House has been refurbished and extended, providing an attractive mix of old architectural charm and purpose-built accommodation. Located in the historic cathedral city of Salisbury, the home has plenty of local amenities, but is within easy reach of beautiful countryside.

We welcome visitors at any time and are always happy to discuss how we can best meet your needs, so why not drop in or give us a call?

Types of care

Milford House is a nursing home that can cater to residents' general nursing needs, focusing on person-centred care that reflects individual requirements and wishes, whilst encouraging those we support to be as independent as possible. In addition to our own team, we draw on support from a range of other professionals and services, such as chiropodists, dietitians, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, opticians, audiologists and anyone else we feel would be of benefit to the people we care for. Ensuring that residents feel safe and supported is at the heart of everything we do and, as our recent CQC report highlighted, Milford House is a "marvelous place."

Our Team

Gemma Hicks

General Manager

Hi, my name is Gemma and I am the General Manager here at Milford House. Welcome to the website!

I have worked in the healthcare sector since 2015, in both public and independent services. As an experienced General Manager, I qualified as a registered Adult nurse in 2006 from the University of Southampton School of Nursing and Midwifery and then began my nursing career in the social care sector. My love for working with the elderly came like many, from looking after my grandmother in my teenage years.

I am extremely passionate about delivering exceptional, person-centred care to residents and ensuring high standards of support. Residents should have the opportunity to live their lives to the fullest. I enjoy working with residents, their loved ones and the staff team here at Milford House.
