Our Ethos

Our Ethos

The Dower House combines high standards of accommodation with exemplary nursing care. Established by Mrs Judith Lywood in 1989, The Dower House is set in over five acres of attractive grounds, offering the finest quality nursing care in beautiful semi-rural surroundings. We aim to provide a safe environment for our residents while maintaining a sense of freedom and personal choice.

We believe in comfort, privacy, dignity and respect.

For us, the key word is “home”. This is where our residents live, so a high degree of privacy and individualism is essential. At the same time we aim to provide the highest quality care, discreetly and respectfully. The management team endeavour to consult the residents on all decisions that affect them.

At The Dower House we feel it is important to keep reinvesting in the business. As their physical environment is of high importance for our residents’ wellbeing, there is a permanent programme of updating the property and facilities.
