Grassington House is an established family run Care Home. We provide personalised care tailored to the needs of our residents. We provide a relaxed social setting, with daily activities, a choice of home cooked meals and refreshments throughout the day.
Each week we visit our beautiful County market town, 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 are treated like members of the family.
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.
Our location is in a central, yet residential, area of the historic county town of Dorchester.
The home is conveniently situated within a short and level walk to the pedestrianised shopping area, cinemas, restaurants, and local gardens. Grassington House also has its own minibus for trips to local places of interest.
