    Navigating the complexities of Dementia can be a tender journey, especially for those with a loved one diagnosed with this condition.

    Dementia is a multi-faceted journey, characterised by various phases and Frome Nursing Home understands the importance of adapting our care to align with the unique needs of individuals as they traverse through these different phases of their Dementia journey

    Our conviction lies in the belief that to provide meaningful care, it is vital for every team member, beyond the caregiving staff, to truly know and understand the individual they are caring for. We understand the significance of delving into the diverse narrative of each person’s life history, gaining insights that allow us to tailor our support to their specific needs. This holistic approach ensures that the care provided at Frome Nursing Home is not just about managing symptoms but about fostering an environment where every resident, who we refer to as family member, is seen, understood, and valued at every stage of their unique Dementia journey.

    We use the family member’s life story to build a picture of their past occupation, lifestyle, history, family, likes and dislikes and our team are trained in completing detailed care plans with the help of relatives.

    We understand the demands memory loss places both on people living with a Dementia and on their families and this is where our Household Model of Care comes in, with the essence of Professor Thomas Kitwood’s profound philosophy.

    Frome Nursing Home endeavours to transcend conventional care, aspiring to establish a nurturing haven deeply grounded in understanding, compassion, and the principles of bespoke Evolve Care Academy training. Our commitment extends beyond mere caregiving, focusing on fostering an environment where each family member’s unique Dementia journey becomes a continuation of life—a space where their individuality is not only preserved but celebrated, affirming that the presence of Dementia should not impede the ongoing journey of living.



    You know what it’s like when, one day, you suddenly realise that mum or dad isn’t coping any more. To be honest, mum or dad probably realise it too, but no-one’s willing to admit it. We’re here to help.

    Moving into a care home simply means you’ve recognised that the time has come when a little help with everyday life wouldn’t go amiss.

    What is Residential Care?

    Also known as personal care or assisted living, residential care is a perfect solution for residents, who we call family members, who need some assistance with daily activities but don’t require intensive nursing or rehabilitation care.



    Respite care not only serves as a temporary stay in a care home but also offers valuable opportunities for social interaction. This becomes particularly beneficial for individuals who may no longer be able to venture into the community but still enjoys the company of others.

    During a respite stay, mealtimes or various socialising opportunities can provide a sense of camaraderie and contribute to wellbeing.

    Aiding individuals in their recovery from hospitalisation or illness, respite care serves as an option when the primary caregiver requires a brief reprieve or is on vacation. The pause from the usual daily routine can be rejuvenating for both caregivers and those receiving care. For caregivers, the assurance that their loved ones are in a safe, comfortable, and homely environment during the respite stay allows them to fully appreciate and enjoy the break they require.
