Welcome to Our Home!

We believe in a positive, life enhancing approach which manifests in exceptional experiences for our residents, delivered by our team who are committed to making a difference and providing care within a person-centred approach, with care, compassion and a smile. This is achieved through;

  • Providing a warm welcome and working with you, your family and friends, helping you to stay in touch with those who are important to you
  • Ensuring the delivery of excellent care that values you as an individual, respects your identity and your preferences and choices
  • Providing a safe and secure home which enables you to keep on doing the things you enjoy and want to do in familiar surroundings.
  • Assisting you to live your life well and supporting with changing care needs if needed


We strive to enable all people in our care to live well in later life through our core values: Respectful, Caring, Honesty.

Our ‘By Your Side – Bringing Quality to Life’ Dementia Strategy aims to ensure that we are exceeding expectations for residents in our care every day. The journey begins with a holistic approach to understanding everyone’s unique experience of the symptoms of their Dementia and how their personality, life story, physical health, cognitive impairment and the social world around them can impact on their well-being.

The strategy ensures that all staff, no matter what job they hold within the home, are trained and competent in their roles and also understand the services we provide. All staff come in to contact with those people we support and it is important that they understand Dementia and how this may affect a person’s needs, but also how they may need to present themselves and adapt and change how they work to support individuals in our care.” Brentwood Care Centre Registered Manager Torie Pollard
