Never a dull moment

A happy and fun-filled old age

Our residents enjoy life at Lilliput House. They eat well; they’re warm, comfortable, and well cared for. Above all, their minds are active. There really is never a dull moment.

We have two activity coordinators who maintains a varied programme that fills all seven days of the week.

It’s not all about being social and on your feet. There are plenty of opportunities to be active and joyful, but just as much time to be quiet and reflective. There’s something for everyone. If you like gardening and feel green-fingered, you can help with the show of colour in the gardens.

The starting point for all activities is you. We’ll talk to you before you move in to find out what you like doing. And we’ll make sure you have plenty of opportunities to do it.

Space to be yourself

If you prefer your own company, there’s no pressure to join in. There’s always at least one quiet room for tea and a chat or your own thoughts, and plenty of benches in the garden.

In your own room you can always shut the door on the world for complete peace and solitude.

Lots to do nearby

Lilliput House makes a great base for a family day out. You can do anything from taking the chain ferry from Sandbanks, to exploring the wildlife at Brownsea Island

Staff who love their work

The only way to see how bright, kind, and friendly we are is to meet us. The door to Lilliput House is always open, and visitors are welcome at any time.

There are no secrets: you can talk to whoever you like. By chatting to us, you’ll see for yourself that our staff feel like they’re part of the community.

Something to live for

If there’s one aspect of life at Lilliput House that tells you how inspiring it is, it’s the speed with which residents recover from illness. We have had residents return from hospital with a very poor prognosis, yet within a few days they’ve perked up way beyond their doctors’ expectations.

Residents recover fast because we believe in giving them something to live for. No one is marking time here; every resident lives life to the full. Why not come and see it for yourself.
