Facilities

At Seabourne House in Bournemouth, we’ve gone all the way to make sure that our facilities enable us to look after those in our care as effectively as possible. From ensuring that residents eat healthy, nutritious meals to providing them with clean clothes and bedding, your loved ones will want for nothing.

Laundry

Our housekeeping team work hard to ensure residents’ clothes and bedding are constantly kept clean in line with the strict requirements set out by leading care bodies.

Using a special laundry detergent called OTEX, we make sure that all micro-organisms including bacteria, yeast, fungus, moulds and viruses are irradiated in every wash; meaning the environment at Seabourne House is kept as hygienic as possible.

All clothing is tagged with identifiable buttons, so we recognise which garments belong to whom. Once clean and dry, all washing is ironed and put away by our support team.

Please note that all dry cleaning is carried out by an external company upon request. The cost of dry cleaning isn’t included in the fees.

Hair Salon

Going to the hair salon is one of life’s simple pleasures. Providing quality haircuts that keep to their preferred style, our dementia trained mobile hairdresser regularly checks in to make the residents feel pampered.

Medical Services

Residents are able to have doctor’s appointments, sight check-ups, and dentist appointments here at the care home. This means they can have all of their health matters tended to in familiar surroundings. We also have regular visits from medical professionals to aid us in monitoring each residents’ dementia and other health issues, including:

  • Psychiatrists
  • Occupational therapists
  • Chiropody
  • Audiologists
  • District and local nurses

Our Chaplain

Here at Seabourne House, everyone should be allowed to express their faith. We have a dementia-trained multi-denominational chaplain who visits our Bournemouth care home to deliver religious services. Residents usually get to sing all of their favourite hymns too!

Catering

We make sure that all of our residents eat three nutritious, high-quality meals every day.  From complete breakfast spreads to hot and cold lunches and sit-down dinners every evening, the term ‘luxury care’, comes into its own with the amount of delicious food that our residents are able to experience.

To make dinner something of an occasion, the residents at Seabourne House come down the stairs in the evening to tables that have been carefully laid in preparation of a three-course meal. Residents don’t, however, have to stick to the set menu; if there’s something they don’t like, our chef can always rustle up something else as equally delicious.

We cater for all dietary requirements and work closely with dieticians and nutritionists to provide meals that offer the residents everything they need to remain fit and healthy.

Chiropody

Birds Hill have two chiropodists who visit every six weeks. If you would like this service please let us know as it is not included in the fees.

Optician

Our visiting optician service has had many years’ experience in looking after the eyesight of those in nursing homes. The qualified opticians carry the latest mobile optical equipment, enabling our residents to have a full eye test in the comfort of their own surroundings.

Doctors & Dentists

We have routine weekly visits from local doctors as well as when requested by our qualified nurses. We also have visits from our dental team for all dentures, dental repairs and check-ups as and when needed.

Catering

Food is one of life’s simple pleasures yet is an important part of our health and well-being. At Birds Hill nursing home you can experience hearty and healthy home cooked meals, locally sourced in the Dorset area and freshly prepared by our experienced chef, special diets and allergies are also catered for.
