Four weeks for the price of three at Encore Homes

Encore Care Homes is running a four weeks for the price of three promotion, giving people the chance to try out the facilities, benefit from round-the-clock care and support, enjoy a range of homecooked meals, and participate in a host of organised on-site activities.

There are four care homes across Dorset and Hampshire providing residential, nursing and dementia-dedicated care at Great Oaks in Bournemouth, Oakdale in Poole, Fairmile Grange in Christchurch and Hamble Heights in Fareham.

The homes are also offering respite care stays of between two to six weeks, which could potentially be used as a trial for residential care.

The Encore team is able to welcome family members and their loved ones to have a covid-safe viewing of the purpose-built facilities available within the care homes. Full PPE and rapid flow testing are in place for the safety of the care home residents, team, and visitors.

Among those taking advantage of Encore’s care is Rita Satchwell (pictured right with Fairmile Grange Wellbeing Manager Kim Butters) who moved to Encore’s Fairmile Grange following a hospital admission due to a fall.
