Grassington House

Grassington House is a friendly place. We provide home cooked food and a variety of activities to stimulate minds and keep bodies active. 

Every week we visit town for whatever it is our residents would like to do; whether it be shopping, perusing the local market, going for a coffee or even a swift half! We want out residents to truly feel part of the local community.

We are registered to provide residential care to 13 residents. Our excellent level of care is tailored specifically to the needs of every individual. Residents will be treated how we would want a member of our family to be treated.

We work with our residents to plan appropriate care packages to maintain the highest level of independence, choice and control. Our person-centred approach encourages confidence, positive self-esteem, respect and dignity. Find out more about how we care smarter. 

Our location is in a central, yet residential, area of the county town of Dorchester. 

The home is conveniently situated within a short and level walk of the pedestrianised shopping area. Grassington House also has its own minibus for local trips out to places of interest.

My stepmother has been a resident of Grassington House for almost 18 months and we are delighted with the high standard of care and friendliness of the staff. A lovely place and we are all very happy with it.

Grassington House is a wonderful example of how a care-home can provide a well organised and professional service within a family atmosphere. The staff really care about the health and comfort of their residents and work very hard to ensure a stimulating programme. Continually engaging with people in their twilight years, is a very challenging and exhausting process but the staff at Grassington House manage to do it with tremendous good humour.

We are very pleased with the care and attention my stepmother is receiving at Grassington House. The atmosphere there and friendliness of the staff is simply the best. Knowing she is happy and content and well looked after, gives the whole family peace of mind. Thank you all so much.

Irene Wise (daughter of resident)

Warm, friendly, approachable staff. Accommodating and responsive, particularly for a resident whose needs are a little outside the 'norm'. The staff always have time to discuss concerns and genuinely care for the residents. A relaxed friendly atmosphere, that is not clinical or institutionalized.
