We are proud to be one of the first homes to be accredited as part of Barchester’s 10-60-06 Dementia Care programme, reflecting the enhanced quality of dementia care and improved quality of life experienced by residents here at Southerndown.
We are situated in the beautiful market town of Chipping Norton in the gorgeous, rolling Cotswold Hills in the district of Oxfordshire, about 12 miles (19 km) southwest of Banbury and 18 miles (29 km) northwest of Oxford. We provide 24-hour nursing care and personal support to frail older people, people with long term illnesses, people with sensory deficits and people living with dementia, who are cared for in our specialist ‘Memory Lane’ community.
Our approach to care is based on careful assessments leading to a personalised and regularly reviewed care plan. Drawn up with the individual concerned and with relatives the care plan provides the basis for medical and rehabilitative work, making sure that dietary needs and preferences are met and the basis for our activities work, which we see as the heart of what we do - to keep up to date with our latest activities and events, please keep popping back to our website to see what we have been up to and what is coming up.
From the minute you enter Southerndown, you will feel the warmth radiating from the caring and homely atmosphere we provide. We want everyone who comes to stay or visit to have a wonderful, memorable experience. Please have a look at our very own Southerndown video we have created to give you a little insight into life at home.
Please feel free to drop in at any time, no appointment needed. Or just come along and have a coffee and a chat to see what we are all about. We hope to welcome you to Southerndown very soon.
