The Tides

About The Tides

The Tides is a specialist service for people with physical disabilities. Our service is situated in Poole and is specially designed to support seven people with complex needs.

Our approach to care:

We are committed to providing just enough support to empower and encourage all individuals utilising our services to develop the skills they need to live as independently as possible. By using Person Centred Plans, we help people to work towards a level of independence which fits with their skills, confidence and aspirations.

The people supported at The Tides are able to provide feedback and make suggestions about the care and support they receive by Craegmoor’s “Your Voice” feedback programme, as well as through regular meetings held within the home.

What it’s like to live here:

People who currently live at The Tides like to help with meal planning, cooking, cleaning, activity planning, socialising and gardening on a regular basis. We provide person centred activities which provide stimulation to the each individual’s sensory needs.

The Tides is a modern detached home situated within walking distance of the shops on the Broadstone Broadway.

“Such a friendly and welcoming home where my daughter has a great quality of life.” – Relative of a person supported by The Tides

We have spacious accommodation for seven people with six rooms having en-suite facilities. There are excellent communal facilities including a large lounge, a utility room which provides laundry facilities and a conservatory for dining and creative activities. There is also a lift to the first floor.

The service has a very large rear garden, which backs onto the playing fields. The people we support are able to assist in growing their own vegetables on a separate plot within the garden.
