Using a “person-centred” approach based on leading theory in current Dementia practice, we work with families, to create a Life Story for each resident. This allows us to get to know each individual’s personal history whilst helping to revisit memories and experiences of by-gone eras. This, coupled with the superior care delivered by our registered manager and dedicated team of nurses and health care staff, ensures that all residents receive 24-hour care and support whilst maintaining privacy, choice, dignity and independence.
Our team, consisting of the Home Manager and carefully selected registered and auxiliary nurses, work alongside our doctors and consultants to ensure the best quality of life for our residents. Excellence in the provision of care and services is achieved through continuous training from external experts and quality improvement.
We are registered with the Care Quality Commission to provide specialist nursing and palliative care; offering residential, nursing care for those who need 24-hour personal and practical support, as well as respite care to support families and carers.

“Special thanks to the extraordinary care we received by all the staff at White Gates, and the wonderful gesture of lining the corridor on DF departure from the home. The flower picked from the garden that went with him when he left White Gates is still in his coffin with him”.
