Our purpose-built Alzheimer’s care home in Bournemouth offers dementia friendly rooms and facilities, including the layout of the building, sensitive décor and interior design to provide a familiar and safe environment. Our nurses take time to get to know each resident, helping to design a care plan to suit their individual needs and preferences.

Meet the Home Manager
Sue has been home manager at Great Oaks since December, and is committed to using her award-winning experience in dementia care to support the team to deliver the best possible care to our residents.
Sue is originally from Cheshire, and trained as a nurse there. Having moved to Pembrokeshire in Wales, she began her career as a district nurse and discovered a passion for elderly care whilst in that role. During this time she gained her NVQ qualification, and having moved into the care sector, became a deputy home manager. In 2011 Sue took on her first home manager role so now has over 10 years experience in this position. Sue chose to specialise in dementia care, and was delighted (and very proud) to win the Leadership and Management Gold Award in the Wales Care Awards.
With her mother and siblings living in Dorset, like many of us, the pandemic made Sue want to be closer to them, so Sue made the move to the south coast. Although she’s settled here now, she loves going back to Wales regularly to see her grown up children and her grandchildren there.
