Upton Bay Care Home in Hamworthy, Poole
Upton Bay Care Home in Hamworthy has been specifically designed to provide high-quality residential care to older people, in addition to care and support for individuals living with dementia.
Upton Bay is perfectly placed to easily access so many of Dorset’s beautiful attractions. Just a short bus ride away is Poole Quay with many shops, restaurants, boat trip opportunities and places to sit and while the time away yacht spotting. Sandbanks and Studland is easily accessible at a short drive away, whilst right on our doorstep there is access to shops, a few pubs and a lovely coastal park just down the road. Upton Bay really is placed to enjoy Dorset at its best.
The home has a dedicated area which we call our Memory Lane Community. Within our community, memory boxes with small reminders and items such as photographs, are used to help each person reminisce. Features such as adapted crockery and tableware, sensory gardens with low-risk walkways and activity kitchens also enable people to engage in life's everyday simple tasks and pleasures.
Our team of highly qualified and attentive staff will focus on the individual needs of each resident, creating a uniquely tailored care plan for each person. The dedication of our staff can be seen across the board in our catering, hospitality and the implementation of a varied activities programme.
We look forward to welcoming you into our home when it opens!

Hi, my name is Mevin, and I am the General Manager here at Upton Bay. Welcome to our website!
I hail from the beautiful island of Mauritius and began my career in care under the advice of my greatest influence – my mum. For this very reason it has always been a vocation to me.
I have a wealth of experience having worked for both private and public health care providers and I have ‘worked my way up’. Prior to joining Barchester, I worked as a Home Manager for a specialist dementia and mental health care home. I also spent some years in London working for a large care provider, where I worked my way up from Deputy Manager to a senior management role, which involved overseeing the smooth running of 16 homes, including nursing, dementia and mental health facilities. I have gained many qualifications, including an NVQ 5 in Management & Leadership.
I strive for excellence and will dedicate myself to ensure those who live here have the best quality of life possible. I am deeply passionate about bringing the absolute best out of everyone. Most of all, I lead with my heart.
I live locally with my beautiful and devoted wife, Rachel. I am also an avid Liverpool fan and will rarely miss a match! I love to cook and I am a trained chef. Also, music and dance are a huge vice for me.Get in touch Meet my team
