We are safely able to support new residents. For more information, please speak with the Home Manager or fill out an enquiry form.
Alexandra House care home combines the peace and scenery of Alexandra Park with the convenience of a nearby high street.
Located a short distance from Ashley Road, the hub of Parkstone, Poole, residents can enjoy many of the little things they did before moving to their new home. Our care staff will always go the extra mile to help residents maintain their independence and normal lifestyle, safely.
Alexandra House is a modern home with a warm, family feel and caring, compassionate carers. It has 58 well-appointed bedrooms, all with their own en-suite facilities, and designed to make life comfortable for residents, particularly those living with dementia. The care home has an on-site hair salon, and can assist with medical and well-being appointments.
We know looking for a care home can be a difficult process, but you are not alone. Please fill out an enquiry form or give us a call and we would be happy to guide you through the process, answer any question and talk you through life at Alexandra House.
We have adapted our admissions process to meet the challenges of COVID-19 and help new and existing residents stay safe. You can find out more about these changes in our Assisi Admissions Plan by clicking here.
We put our residents at the heart of everything we do, and know that no two are the same. That is why we get to know residents and their life stories, hobbies and interests, helping us to create events around their likes.
As well as organising daily activities and games, our carers create a wish list for residents based around the special things that they have always wanted to do, ensuring residents are creating new memories, not just reliving old ones.
The Daily Sparkle
We are also supported by The Daily Sparkle, a newspaper and app featuring news stories from the past and familiar activities. Using these resources has opened up conversations for our less sociable residents, who reveal the smaller details of their lives, allowing carers to get to know residents on a close, personal level.

Look below for some of the things we have been up to recently.
“I love cooking classic English meals, but my favourite to cook is probably lasagne or pies and puddings. I feel you need to love food and enjoy cooking to make a good dish.” – Emily Chastey, Alexandra House chef
Meals are more than just the food on the plate, they bring people together. At Alexandra House, residents meet for meal times in our relaxed and comfortable dining rooms, with wholesome, well-balanced meals.
We talk to residents to help create flexible menus around their likes and needs, also working within any special dietary requirements. Snacks and afternoon teas are also available to residents.
Neil Dominy – Home Manager
For me, it’s all about what the residents want – after all, it’s their home! I like to involve residents in the decisions at Alexandra House as much as I can and they are involved in the recruitment process for our staff.
Parkstone is a thriving area and it has been a pleasure to forge strong links with local businesses, churches and groups so we can create a real community atmosphere at Alexandra House.
Although we can’t welcome you for a look around our care homes just yet, you can still view inside thanks to our remote tours.
