About Blandford Grange

Blandford Grange is a large spacious home located in the Georgian town of Blandford Forum. The home is spacious yet very homely and comfortable. The home has a modern interior and is lovely and bright with big, airy bedrooms that are tastefully decorated and nice, bright communal areas.

The atmosphere at the home is very relaxed and the staff are down-to-earth and very approachable. Visitors and residents are treated like extended family and there is a wonderful atmosphere that pervades throughout.

Activities and entertainment

Our dedicated activities team organises varied activities plans in order to keep residents stimulated and engaged. We are committed to promoting the physical and psychological well-being of our residents, with regular group and one-to-one activities.

We involve residents in the planning of our weekly activities timetables and we’re also passionate about keeping our homes and residents at the heart of the local community, working closely with community groups, schools and other community connections to keep residents involved in local activities.

Some of our regular activities include:

  • Chair yoga
  • Games
  • Singing
  • Visiting entertainers

Dining is an essential part of the care package we provide to our residents, not only from a general health and wellbeing perspective, but we believe residents should be able to enjoy eating what they want, when they want.

Our chef fully assesses all dietary needs, including likes and dislikes, allergies. special diets, through to preferred portion sizes and mealtimes.

We have a daily food menu, which includes breakfast, lunch and dinner. Mid-morning, afternoon and evening snacks and drinks are also served, and sandwiches, biscuits and other refreshments are available at any time of the day.


Blandford Grange is located in the beautiful market town of Blandford Forum in Dorset. The town is close to the River Stour and the Isle of Purbeck. The local area has plenty on offer for visiting relatives, ranging from a visit to the quintessential English market to a walk in the beautiful countryside with magnificent views over the nearby villages from Hambledon Hill. Visitors can also enjoy Wareham Forest, several beaches located in Bournemouth, Poole or Weymouth and the New Forest.

Health and wellness

The health and wellness of our residents is very important and we work closely in partnership with local health and wellness professionals to ensure every resident is able to lead a full and enriched life. We welcome visiting professionals such as GPs, chiropodists, opticians and can arrange visits to other professionals if and when it may be required.


Our visiting pod in the garden, with its two entrance points, protective Perspex screens, intercom system and a nurse call button, allows us to safely facilitate visits from friends and relatives when our infection control procedures prevent us from welcoming visitors into the home itself.

Our accommodation

Arranged over three floors, our 63 bedrooms can be personalised to make them a real home-from-home, and residents are able to enjoy a selection of lounges, dining rooms and well-kept gardens for relaxing, socialising and entertaining.

All of our bedrooms are provided ready-furnished with the essentials for instant comfort, and we happily encourage our residents to bring their own treasured furnishings and belongings if they would like to do so.

Amongst our range of well-equipped areas and facilities, there’s always space for quiet contemplation, or for enjoying the company of kindred spirits, and for relishing in interests and pursuits.

Our beautiful gardens offer an al fresco setting to enjoy anything from regular exercise to taking tea.

      Terms and Conditions

      If you will be funding your stay privately, please click here to view our Resident Contract of Admission for Self-Funders.

      If a Local Authority may be funding your stay, please click here to view our Resident Terms and Conditions for a Local Authority Funded Stay.

      Your Local Authority might locate/suggest a care home that is/your Local Authority believes is suitable to meet your care and support needs, that is of a lower cost than our required weekly fee. In this circumstance the Local Authority is unlikely to agree to fully fund your stay if you choose to select our care home instead of the less expensive establishment it has sourced for/suggested to you. In this event, private ‘top-up’ payments will be necessary in order to address the shortfall between our weekly fee and the weekly fee funding available from/offered by your Local Authority.

      An additional top-up payment will almost certainly be required if you select, or we only have available, a non-standard room in the care home and your Local Authority is only prepared to pay for a standard room. If you select, or we only have available, a non-standard room in the care home, the additional cost for that non-standard room will have to be met by top-up payments.

      Owing to the fact that your financial means will have been assessed by your Local Authority, it is very likely that the Local Authority will require private top-up payments to be made by a third party from their own funds. Although the Guidance to the Care Act 2014 states that a Local Authority ought itself collect top-up payments, some require us to collect such payments on their behalf. Should the Local Authority require us to collect top-up payments, we would issue the third party who is to fund the top-up with a contractual agreement for their review and signature.

      If a Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) may be funding your stay, please click here to view our Resident Terms and Conditions for a CCG Funded Stay.
