Care at the heart of your community

Our nurse-led staff genuinely put the happiness of our residents at the heart of everything they do.


Nurse-led care with a personal touch

“At Durban House, our difference is that we’re a nurse-led care home so our approach focuses on meeting the healthcare needs of our residents. But more than that, our team of exceptionally-caring staff also build close relationships with our residents, so we can tailor care specifically to their requirements and create an environment that enhances their wellbeing. We want people to move in here, carry on living life and feel that this is their home.”

About us

Nursing Care

Our team of nurses provide quality 24-hour care for people with more complex health and rehabilitation needs. Supported by our care team, we pride ourselves on getting to know and keeping a close eye on each of our residents, with a primary focus on providing nursing care for every day or end-of-life, that’s personalised, compassionate and professional.

Respite Care

Durban House offers short stay care for people who need some support in between leaving hospital and returning home, or when family members, who provide the usual care, are away on holiday. Our team offer the nursing care required in a friendly and welcoming home-from-home environment.

Care for Older People

Our care team are dedicated to providing residential care services for residents, who may no longer be able to live alone or no longer wish to live alone at home. From washing and dressing to supporting mealtimes and the administration of medication, our team build trusting relationships with residents to understand the exact care they need.

Dementia Care

Increasingly common in older people, our team are proficient in caring for – and enhancing the quality of life of people with dementia. We work closely with families to support residents with a mild to moderate conditions, whether they’ve been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease or one of the other types of dementia which exist.


We want people who move into our home to carry on living their lives, and maybe even start living again.”

Nurse-led care with a personal touch

Situated about a mile or so away from Romsey town centre and offers excellent accommodation for nursing, dementia and end of life care.

Durban House Nursing Home gives a feeling of ‘home from home’ and focuses on providing a more homely and intimate environment rather than a hotel style way of living. This means the Durban House has a very relaxed atmosphere where everyone feels welcome.

Activities and wellbeing

We’re proud of our extensive programme of activities here at Durban House. This programme is organised and led by our two Activities & Wellbeing coordinators, who plan a wide selection of events, so there’s always something to look forward to.
