Maple House Nursing Home


Care Philosophy

All care staff within the Home will be appropriately trained and qualified to deliver the highest standards of care.

Maple House Care Home in Hampshire aims to provide service users with a secure, relaxed and homely environment where their care, well-being and comfort are of prime importance.

Carers will preserve and maintain the dignity, individuality and privacy of all service users within a warm and caring atmosphere, and in doing so will be sensitive to medical/therapeutic, cultural, psychological, spiritual, emotional and social needs.

Service users are encouraged to participate in the development of their individual care plans, in which the involvement of family and friends is greatly valued. This will be achieved through programmes of activities designed to encourage mental alertness, self-esteem and social interaction and with recognition of the following core values of care which are fundamental to the philosophy of our Home.

Maple House Care Home specialises in dementia, palliative, Alzheimer, cancer, Parkinson’s and diabetic care.

A continuous staff training programme is implemented to ensure that those standards are maintained in line with the latest initiatives and developments in care practices, as may be laid down in appropriate legislation and Care Quality Commission guidelines.
