Snowdrop Place Care Home in Botley, Southampton

Snowdrop Place is a beautiful home, designed specifically to support people living with dementia and those who require residential care. The care home has fantastic facilities, such as a cinema, an activities café, a gorgeous salon and 4 spa bathrooms. We are fortunate enough to have a Magic table here so that all our residents, but specifically our residents living with dementia, can engage in an extraordinary interactive experience.

Snowdrop Place is in a quiet setting close to the local bowls club. It is ideally situated between Botley Village and Hedge End Village; both areas offer a range of shops, places to eat and other amenities and transport links. There are some great local businesses in both villages. With close links to the M27, Snowdrop Place is easy to access from further areas.

As a Barchester home, our experienced and compassionate staff will work hard to ensure care is tailored the needs of each resident. Many of our staff are responsible for instilling our values of respect and dignity. Our person-centred approach will be reflected across all aspects of life within the home.

Our passion for our home will be seen in everything we do: in our cooking, hospitality, housekeeping and, of course, in organising activities for our residents. Activities make up the most important part of all our days and, at Snowdrop Place, we will provide a variety that reflects the interests and capabilities of all the ladies and gentlemen we support. 

We have created a video to showcase our stunning care home, which you can view below:

Our Team

The dedicated and experienced team are passionate about providing quality care to each individual living at the home.

Gemma Hicks

General Manager

Hi, my name is Gemma and I am the General Manager here at Snowdrop Place. 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 Snowdrop Place.
