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.

Dementia Care

'Memory Lane' utilises a careful blend of skills and techniques developed by leading experts in the field of dementia care, incorporating person-centred design in its use of colour and cues to help individuals navigate through the home, whilst thoughtful interior design features, such us adapted crockery and tableware assists with reminiscence. Communities are broken up into separate units with a family feel so people can feel safe and comfortable. Care is focused on independence, dignity and choice, with a person-centred approach. Staffing levels reflect the needs of residents, and people living with dementia are offered a range of activities to help preserve life skills, support interactions and retain a sense of purpose and selfhood.

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.

Our Team

Lorraine Ball

General Manager

Hi, my name is Lorraine, and I am the Senior General Manager for the Cotswold region and General Manager here at Southerndown Care Home. Welcome to our website!

I have been privileged to work across the care sector with older people and adults with learning disabilities. I have worked in quality and compliance roles, as well as in management. I qualified as a nurse in 1998. My ultimate goal has always been, and always will be, to enhance and enrich the lives of those we have been trusted to care for and support.

I’m a nurse by background, and like most nurses, I started my journey in the NHS. I joined Barchester because I believe very much in; 'Celebrating Life'. I live this core value in every aspect of my life and work. I am dedicated to putting our residents at the heart of everything we do.

It is important help people live a life that is meaningful to them. I am excited to help our residents achieve this. My experience in quality and compliance work means I am always keen to achieve and improve the highest standards of care. I am a great believer in consulting our residents so that their experience with us can be the best.
