Our Approach to Care

Maintaining every resident’s dignity, individuality and quality of life is our priority.

We work with residents and their families to create an individual care plan that will support each person’s specific needs, including nursing and dementia care, supporting them in continuing their happy and fulfilling life. Every day, carers spend time with residents to ensure they experience maximum physical and mental stimulation.

Whilst Portland Nursing Home is designed to be an independent setting for our residents, the home is fully integrated with the Buxton community. Residents often head out to the local shops, post office, library and the church.

Healthcare professionals regularly visit the home to provide a good range of additional services for our residents. This includes our local GP, District Nurses, our local Dentist, Chiropodists, Opticians and a Hairdresser.
