We are safely able to support new residents. For more information, please speak with the Home Manager or fill out an enquiry form.

Wickmeads is located amidst beautiful scenery and a stone’s throw away from the idyllic Tuckton Gardens and River Stour, as well as being only a short distance from the historic market town of Christchurch.

The care home is bright and enriching, helping residents feel free, independent and engaged with their new home. There is also a large sensory garden and a number of areas for residents to socialise or relax.


Wickmeads has 50 well-appointed bedrooms, all with their own en-suite facilities. There is an on-site hair salon and cafe, and support can be provided for health 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 questions and talk you through life at Wickmeads.

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.

And like our residents, no two days are the same at Wickmeads. Our activities team promote variety in their engaging activities programme, whether it’s a pamper day in the salon, reliving cherished memories and getting active with AFC Bournemouth’s Community Sports Trust, or welcoming special guests, entertainers and performers.

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.

Wickmeads Chef

“I love to cook for the residents and see their faces light up when they have enjoyed a good meal. They particularly enjoy the Sunday evening buffet.” – Francis Scott, Wickmeads chef

Meals are more than just the food on the plate, they bring people together. At Wickmeads, 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.

Tracey Walker – Home Manager

Wickmeads Home Manager Tracey Walker

I’ve worked in the care sector for 30 years in total and not a day goes by that I do not love my job and the people I look after. Seeing a smile and achieving best outcome for them is what makes my job so rewarding. I’m also very proud of the staff at Wickmeads, who are dedicated, caring and always go the extra mile.

The views and opinions of residents are very important to me, and I like to involve them in decisions governing what is essentially their home.
