Located in one of the most sought after residential areas in Sunningdale, adjacent to the world renowned Golf Course and with views over the Ladies’ Course, Dormy House offers residential, nursing and specialist dementia care for up to 88 elderly ladies and gentlemen.
Originally a grand 1930s family residence, this care home in Sunningdale has been sympathetically converted and extended to provide the very highest standards of care in a home of distinction. The home provides outstanding hospitality services, more akin to a hotel than a care centre. Fine dining is provided by our chef and residents have a choice of single or companion rooms at standard or premier level. All rooms are, of course, en-suite.
In addition to residential and nursing care within the main house, a modern purpose built extension, The Surrey, provides dedicated dementia care. The Surrey has been designed to meet the University of Stirling’s standards for dementia care, which are widely acknowledged as providing the best living environment for people living with dementia. Stirling’s Dementia Services Development Centre is renowned as the world leader in this field. The Stirling approach ensures that residents are able to move freely around the dementia wing, with bedrooms and communal areas appropriately laid out and clearly signposted to minimise confusion or disorientation. Each bedroom features a memory box by its front door, where mementos from a resident’s life help to personalise their room and also remind staff and visitors of the individual’s life story.
The Surrey is ideally equipped to provide residential support for elderly people living with different types of dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia and Korsacoff’s syndrome. However, staff never lose sight of the fact that, first and foremost, The Surrey, and Dormy House as a whole, is home to our residents. The home has a light, airy and welcoming ambience and residents benefit from a broad and thoroughly enjoyable range of activities.
Dormy House offers a full range of residential support, including trial stays, respite breaks and convalescent care as well as long term care. Residents are encouraged to bring important personal possessions to personalise their rooms. Dormy House operates an open visiting policy, where residents and loved ones may visit at convenient times. In common with all of our homes, Dormy House’s manager has a qualified nursing background. The home is fully registered with the Care Quality Commission and has ISO9001/2000 and Hospitality Assured accreditation.

Life in a Caring Home is viewed as a continuum of life – an opportunity to gain new experiences and learn new things – whilst maintaining your existing hobbies and interests.
At every Caring Home, there is a dedicated activities co-ordinator who is on hand to support residents in learning new hobbies and maintaining existing ones.
An activities programme is developed by the activities co-ordinators who work in conjunction with the clinical team in reviewing each individuals occupational interests and tailoring an activities programme that addresses them.
