Our Bournemouth and Poole care homes are busy welcoming visitors

Published: Thursday 1st April 2021

Blenheim Care Home in Bournemouth and Chalgrove Care and Nursing Home in Poole have been welcoming their first visitors since lock-down restrictions eased, and are looking forward to the prospect of a busy Easter weekend.

Both our homes are Covid free, continue to carry out regular testing and follow latest Government guidance on vaccination, PPE, hygiene, infection control and visits.

Tracy Jennings, Manager of Blenheim Care Home on Dunbar Road in Bournemouth, said:

The vaccine roll-out and welcoming of more indoor family visits for residents following the easing of restrictions is a real boost.

We’ve been busy welcoming visitors, and there finally looks like some light at the end of the tunnel for us, our residents and their families.

Resident Joy Ward was recently reunited with daughter Valerie Ward at Blenheim Care Home.


On arriving at Blenheim Care Home Valerie said:

It’s so wonderful to see mum looking so well and happy.

Blenheim and Chalgrove care homes provide high quality and affordable residential care and are welcoming new residents. They are regulated by the Care Quality Commission, each receiving a ‘Good’ rating following inspection.

We know just how treasured visits are by our residents, their loved ones and our care home teams, and we have already been facilitating safe visits wherever possible during the pandemic, even before the latest Government move to ease restrictions.
