The Links is in the lovely village setting of Broadstone, close to local amenities and within easy reach of Dorset’s beautiful beaches and countryside.

The Links offers residential, nursing, respite, post-operative, palliative and dementia care.

It can also offer a space for people to rest, relax and recover with short stays too. The home also has double rooms and connecting rooms for couples.

At The Links, staff take great care to focus on the person. It’s important for residents to feel at home, so it creates a friendly environment with an individually appropriate balance of care and independence. Staff are well trained and there is 24/7 nursing care on site. The home also has an onsite café for all to enjoy too.

Enjoying food is an important part of life. The chefs create well-crafted menus made with the freshest ingredients and try to cater for all ethnicity groups. Soon after a resident arrives at The Links, staff discuss their personal preferences and dietary needs with them.

There’s a real sense of community at the home. The staff work to discover what residents enjoy doing and the home’s social calendar is organised around those interests. So whether your loved one already has a hobby or would like to take up a new one, there are lots of exciting activities to get involved in. Anyone is welcome to pop in and join in, whether they’re a friend, relative or loved one.
