Nursing Home in Salisbury
0808 223 5520
Located in the heart of the magnificent cathedral city of Salisbury, Laverstock Care Centre is one of Caring Homes’ finest new services. Laverstock provides residential, specialist nursing and dementia care for up to 80 elderly ladies and gentlemen in a state of the art home designed to deliver the very highest standards of care.
In providing three distinct types of care under one roof, Laverstock is ideally positioned to deliver a true care pathway. As a resident’s care needs change, Laverstock is equipped to meet those needs ensuring that elderly residents are able to remain within the community they have become an integral part of.
Laverstock Care Centre’s dementia wing 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 home, with bedrooms and communal areas appropriately laid out and clearly signposted to minimise confusion or disorientation. Many bedrooms feature a memory box by the 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 Laverstock Care home in Wiltshire is ideally equipped to provide residential support for elderly people living with different types of dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia and Korsakoff’s syndrome. However, staff never lose sight of the fact that, first and foremost, Laverstock Care Centre is home to our residents. The home has a light, airy and welcoming ambience and residents benefit from a broad and stimulating range of activities.
The home offers a full range of residential, nursing and dementia care support, including trial stays, short stay and convalescent care, as well as long-term care. Residents are encouraged to bring important personal possessions to personalise their rooms. Laverstock Care Centre operates an open visiting policy, where residents and loved ones may visit at convenient times. In common with all of our homes, Laverstock Care Centre’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.

One of the best care centres around the Salisbury area! I am satisfied with all aspects of the care home except that there has been a noticeable shortage of staff, especially over the weekends. I know this issue is being addressed by the management; and this problem seems to be one that is being experienced by other care homes. In addition the lighting in rooms does not appear to be changed regularly... carehomes.co.uk - Bill A Son of Resident/Service User
When my mother was discharged from hospital she was very weak and had lost her appetite, with the encouragement of the staff at the Laverstock Care Centre she has now regained her normal eating and is much stronger. The care that my mother has received has been amazing and I will thoroughly recommend this home.
Review relates to April 2015.
How likely would you be to recommend Laverstock Care Centre? Extremely LIKELY- Christine B Daughter of Resident/Service User
Mum was admitted after a stay in hospital from a fall. She was very weak and could barely walk and she was not eating well. All the staff encouraged and aided mum to eat and get mobile again. My sister and I have noticed a vast improvement which is entirely due to the constant care and professionalism of the home.

Lovely modern home, with rooms light and airy with nice fittings. My mother felt at home as soon as she moved in. The staff were wonderful from the nursing staff and carers to the cleaners. They took wonderful care of her and us as we were there most days. When mum passed away, the love and respect shown was of great comfort to our family. I cannot praise the home enough.- Patricia C Daughter of Resident/Service User
I chose to come here post hospitalisation after a total hip replacement as my experience 3 years ago was so good. My husband developed pneumonia and died (in hospital 3 days later). Everything was managed extremely well, faultless reactions and care for him and for me. This respite has enabled me to return home with confidence. It has exceeded my expectations.- Shirley E Resident / Service User
