A message from Ellen, Peripatetic Manager

"I strongly believe that everybody has a right to be treated with dignity and respect and that the care our residents receive is second to none. They should be safe and confident that the brilliant, hardworking people that look after them have all the practical and people skills to help them achieve as independent and fulfilling a life as possible. In my role as the Peripatetic Manager, I aim to inspire excellence, promote compassion and empathy and lead a cohesive team that understands that working as a team, achieves the right outcomes for all, and makes the work, and our residents' living environment a happy place to be. "

Local Community

Things to do around The Laurels and Pine Lodge

We are fortunate to have a variety of local attractions on our doorstep. Within close proximity is the beautiful South Coast, with the golden beaches of Bournemouth and Poole, where our residents love to stroll along the promenades and enjoy traditional fish and chips. Poole Quay, Brownsea Island, Swanage and the New Forest are all just a short distance away and are places that we regularly visit. We have close links to our local community and have established good relationships with the local churches, library, schools and nurseries who visit us at the home on a regular basis.
