Welcome to The Mellowes Care Home in Gillingham

The Mellowes is located in the pretty town of Gillingham, close to historic Shaftesbury, with local shops and amenities within walking distance. The home has been specifically designed for residents in need of residential and nursing care.

Our highly-trained care assistants and registered nurses provide a supportive, friendly environment where our residents are given as much independence as possible.

There are two attractive courtyard gardens attached to the home, which our residents are welcome to enjoy and relax in on warmer days. Some of our rooms have views of the gardens.

Types of care

  • Care for those recovering from surgery or illness, through a combination of rest appropriate exercise and balanced diet.

  • Care provided for those who need some social interaction or are recovering from illness or surgery and their main carer is unavailable during the day.

  • We offer 24-hour personal support to those with a condition that requires frequent specialised, qualified nursing care.

  • We provide respectful pro-active care for residents and relatives in their last days of life. We ensure that their physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs are considered and met.

  • Provides accommodation, meals and personal care for those who find it increasingly difficult to cope at home without assistance.

  • Round the clock care in a safe, comfortable environment for up to six weeks. Perfect for carers who are ill, on holiday or just need a break.
