"Wimborne Care Home has a lovely caring atmosphere. The ladies and gents always look very content and are treated with respect and care. There is a lovely open plan dining room and lounge area where activities take place, so the residents can take part or observe as they wish. Bedrooms and public areas are always very clean and mealtimes are a real treat with menus on the tables and a good selection of food."

"My mother has been an in client at this home for the past 2 years plus. I cannot recommend this home and Barchester Care enough. The kindness and care given to my mother as an individual has been excellent. They will do anything for her at any time of the day. Two members of staff in particular are absolutely marvellous to my mother particularly when she is difficult. I would be extremely upset if I had to remove my mother from Wimborne."

"The team at Wimbourne took superb care of my stepmother, from her early stage Alzheimers disease, up to the end of life, a period of two years. The level of caring offered to her was excellent, universally through the full Wimbourne team. They have my heartfelt thanks and those of the whole family for their loving care given."

"My mother has been a resident here for 3 years and is now 106 years old. She has always been treated with kindness and dignity and the staff enjoy looking after her. She is no longer mobile and staff are always popping in and out of her room to check her. She always eats her food that is carefully prepared for her and has to be fed. I visited many care homes and chose very carefully and have not been disappointed. All the staff are very kind and appear to enjoy looking after her. I am so lucky and so is she!"

"It is a relief to know that my relative is being well looked after by caring and considerate staff. She first moved into the home three years ago at the fine age of 103. The fact that she is still with us now 106 is a testimony to the excellent care she has received from everybody at the home."

Martin O

"The overall care my mother has received over the past three years has been of an excellent standard. The staff are kind and considerate and will listen to her and talk to her whenever possible. The food is of an excellent variety and she looks forward to meal times. The décor is updated on a regular basis and the home is always welcoming. My mother is very happy at Wimborne."

"I visited many care homes before we brought mum to Wimborne Care Home. I must say I was most impressed with it here. The staff have been so caring and kind to my mum especially recently when she was quite poorly and admitted to hospital she spent three weeks in bed in hospital came back to Wimborne and the next day I was so impressed to find her up washed and sat in her chair. Mum loves all the staff even though she gets grumpy at times. I couldn't wish for better care for mum as I know how hard it must be sometimes for the staff but they never show anything but kindness and to top it all the food is excellent."

"My mother has been a resident at Wimborne Care Home for about 7 months now after being at another care home in Chichester for six years. Wimborne Care Home exceeds our expectations. The décor is wonderful, bright and cheery. The carers are absolutely wonderful and caring is not enough to describe them; they are so loving to my mother. I put all this down to the manager. She runs the care home brilliantly and has such a professional attitude as well as a caring nature."

"My mother has been here for 6 months. It has been a really wonderful home for her. A fabulous team. I really couldn't recommend it more highly. It is a privilege and pleasure to visit my mother and see how happy and settled she is. Congratulations to all, especially the manager! A truly wonderful residential home."

"Most of the time I'm very happy here just sad at times as I can't do what I used to be able to. I find all the girls (staff) kind and helpful and caring! The food is very good and I enjoy my dinners although I don't want to eat much, my family and friends are always made welcome, and can eat with me whenever they like. I like to sit at the window and watch the birds and listen to my music. I know if I want anything I just have to call one of the staff."

"My Mother has lived here for 6 years and has been settled and happy in that time. The members of staff are warm and caring and her needs now exceed those normally expected from a residential care home. The staff have accommodated the changes in her condition following a seriously debilitating stroke and in a number of serious illnesses. We are very pleased with the standard of care."

"My mother-in-law has been a resident at Wimborne for 6 years. Regards it as her 'new' home. She is safe and very well cared for. Happy. Staff are cheerful and treat her with dignity at 98 years old, her care needs are challenging but the home have adapted to her changing condition very well."

carehome.co.uk rating: 4.58 out of 5

"My mother spent three years at Wimborne and was so happy. She called it "home" and it was her home. I myself came from Brighton and as much as it is a difficult journey I was never able to find a home on the same high standard of care. I myself run a house and am very impressed by the level of care and all the carers and the care they give and how they are with residents. I highly recommend Wimborne."

"Wimborne is a bright, happy and homely place. It is like a home from home. My mother is happy here and enjoys the food very much. She is gentle encouraged to follow the path she wants to in her world and this has made her much happier. All the staff are excellent and everyone is made to feel like part of the family (and it is like as fmaily)! Thank you to all of you!"

"I looked at several "Homes " before I came across Wimborne it ticked all the boxes and was the only home viewed by my mother that she was enthusiastic about. It was a huge step after living on her own for many years, it took a while to settle but she is now enjoying it. Wimborne has a homely feel to it and is all on one level, the management and staff go out of their way to make it. The food is excellent and all cooked from fresh, there is also an activities programme throughout the week. The staff are always cheerful and friendly and nothing is too much trouble to make the residents comfortable."

"I transferred my wife to the home and I am very pleased I did because this home is miles better than her previous home. I get on very well with all the staff here and my wife is a lot happier."

David C

"I loved this home the moment I walked in, it feels like someone's own home and not at all like an institution. The staff know their residents really well and are committed to making them feel like individuals with stories to tell and personalities to preserve. It's bright, airy and cleverly laid out to give all rooms a view onto patios or gardens. The general manager and the administrator are simply shining, warm caring and fun!"
