Laverstock Care Centre is located in the heart of the magnificent cathedral city of Salisbury, and is one of Caring Homes’ finest new services. Laverstock provides residential, specialist nursing and dementia care for up to 80 elderly ladies and gentlemen in a state of the art home designed to deliver the very highest standards of care.

In providing three distinct types of care under one roof, Laverstock Care Centre is ideally positioned to deliver a true care pathway. As a resident’s care needs change, Laverstock is equipped to meet those needs ensuring that elderly residents are able to remain within the community they have become an integral part of.

Laverstock Care Centre’s dementia wing has been designed to meet the University of Stirling’s standards for dementia care, which are widely acknowledged as providing the best living environment for people living with dementia. Stirling’s Dementia Services Development Centre is renowned as the world leader in this field. The Stirling approach ensures that residents are able to move freely around the home, with bedrooms and communal areas appropriately laid out and clearly signposted to minimise confusion or disorientation. Many bedrooms feature a memory box by the front door, where mementos from a resident’s life help to personalise their room and also remind staff and visitors of the individual’s life story.
