Providing Outstanding Care in Poole
At Aranlaw House, our mission is to help individuals with dementia live their lives as happily and independently as possible.
Before they move in, each resident receives a personalised care plan that covers all aspects of their care, from capabilities to dietary requirements and lifestyle preferences. We use pre-assessments and consultations with family members and medical professionals to create tailored care plans that promote independence as much as possible.
Our staff delivers care sensitively, always valuing the thoughts and opinions of our residents. We strive to maintain our residents’ sense of individuality and independence, while still providing the level of support needed for them to live comfortably.
Care for People at Any Stage of Dementia
We follow Dr. Gemma Jones’ behavioural staging model, which categorises dementia into progressive stages. This model allows our team to provide care that’s tailored to the specific needs and abilities of each individual, rather than offering generalised care based on their overall condition.
Our care team has undergone extensive training to recognise each stage and monitor changing behaviours. This allows us to know exactly what level of support they require.
Through continuous monitoring, we develop a deep understanding of what’s ‘normal’ for each person, which allows us to identify whether changes in mood are caused by dementia or another health condition. Our staff use electronic records to keep detailed notes that reflect the needs and mood of each resident, which allows us to closely monitor their behavioural patterns, health, and overall well-being, and update their care plan accordingly.

Rooms and Facilities
Aranlaw House is specifically designed for people with both advanced and less advanced dementia. With 46 luxury ensuite rooms, all accessible by lift, each person has their own private space to retreat to when needed.

Our home spans across three floors, each with its own communal and dining areas where our residents can gather to socialise and enjoy delicious meals. Our communal areas are decorated with calming colours to create a warm and relaxed atmosphere.
We’ve also placed cameras in communal areas and corridors to keep a watchful eye on our residents' movements and assist them if necessary.
