Downs View Care Home Inspection Report

Downs View Care Home

Downs View Care Centre is situated in the quiet rural hamlet of Badbury, just off the A346 (Swindon to Marlborough road) approximately 1 mile from Junction 15 off the M4 motorway. Newly refurbished with sensory-rich themes.


Welcome to Downs View Care Centre. Coate Water Care have worked tirelessly to create a homely environment at Downs View and our dedicated team of experienced carers, nurses and support staff are the guardians of a highly professional care setting. We are proud of our reputation as an exemplary care home where residents and visitors really feel ‘at home’ as soon as they step through the door. We would be delighted to show you around a home we’re all proud of in our quiet corner of Wiltshire.

Sensory Garden provides residents with peaceful outdoor stimulus. There is nothing quite like an English country garden and Downs View’s Sensory Garden has been especially designed to help people with dementia enjoy the nation’s great pastime. This stimulating outdoor space with shaded areas and non-slip soft flooring gives residents the opportunity to experience the sights, sounds and smells of colourful flowers, scented plants, aromatic herbs, water features and wind chimes. It has even got its own Pets Corner and aviary!
