All rooms at Buckland Court are on the ground floor, giving easy access to the lovely and nurtured grounds, which include internal courtyards for residents' enjoyment.

Residents can enjoy the daily activities going on in the central communal areas with the hairdressing salon open during the week. The cinema room is used partly for activities but also for individual and personal use. The relaxing, well tendered and nourished garden is perfect to unwind in, or to participate in some green fingered activity and spruce up the raised plant beds.

Services & Facilities

Our friendly, professionally-trained team is on hand around the clock to support our residents, ensuring they spend their days how they wish and enabling them to enjoy a fulfilling and independent lifestyle.

The attentive care team focuses on the individual needs of the residents, with a tailored care plan for each person. Their aim is to improve the quality of life for our residents by creating lovely, comfortable, homely surroundings and by providing care, activities and other services designed around each resident’s needs and wishes.


Meet the team

The talented chef and kitchen team prepare tasty, home-cooked meals on site daily from our own kitchens. We source quality produce for our excellent breakfast, lunch and dinner menus. All-day dining is available for lighter meals and snacks and all dishes are carefully balanced to get the best nutritional value and cater for individual dietary requirements and preferences.

Seasonal produce is chosen whenever possible and of course, relatives and friends are always welcome to join us. The menus change daily, and the kettle is always on. Our chef bakes every day so there is always a fresh cake to enjoy.

Each of the households has their own small kitchen dining room where residents can take their meals if they wish. Residents are also encouraged to help prepare their own food and to make snacks whenever they choose.

Whether it’s wet or dry outside, at OSJCT, we feel that activities are essential in providing the best caring environment to live in.

Hobbies don’t simply stop when living with us at Buckland Court. We have a dedicated Activities Co-ordinator who works closely with our residents to create a programme of fulfilling activities and events, tailored around each resident’s requests, hobbies and interests. The programme of events and activities provide a source of fun and laughter, to help each resident live their life to the full and make new friendships.

With so many well-being activities for body and mind on offer, we also recognise that everyone needs some personal space for relaxation and mindfulness for personal reflection. The cosy lounges offer an opportunity for some quiet time or to host family and friends.

And that’s not all:

We’ve had silent discos, hoe downs, Chinese banquets, Oscar parties and so much more.

Many of the activities feature Reminiscence Therapy to aid those living with Dementia to remember events, people and places using sight, touch, taste, smell and sound.

As we are on the outskirts of a market town - within a vibrant community, there's never a dull moment. We run regular activities for all to join in:

  • Coffee mornings
  • Care Home Open Day
  • Summer and Autumn fetes
  • Christmas parties

Team Leader

Nicky Riggs is Care Leader at Buckland Court. She joined OSJCT in 2009 and has worked her way up to Care Leader. 
Starting off as Carer, Nicky felt a sense of belonging and felt like she was making a real difference to the residents' lives. 
After a couple of years, Nicky was given the opportunity to become Shift Leader which she really enjoyed. A few years after that Nicky then became Care Leader which entailed guiding new members of staff and organising shifts, liaising with multi-disciplinary teams, attending reviews, and supervising staff members. 
Nicky enjoys her role and says it can vary from assisting the Home Manager, to budgeting, recruitment, occupancy and rotas. The role also includes giving care, assisting with feeding, dependency paperwork and updating care plans. 
Nicky says that Buckland Court feels like an extension of her family and that includes both staff and residents.

Care Leader

Gemma has been working for the Trust for nearly 10 years and is also the Dementia Lead for Buckland Court. Gemma feels like a part of the family working at Buckland Court and knows that it’s a place of work where she belongs. Gemma is passionate about caring for the residents and is always smiling and ready to face any challenges that may arise. Gemma has helped support many fabulous outings with the residents, but her favourite has to be the Trust's Christmas parties as Gemma loves Christmas. In Gemma’s spare time she likes to spend time with her family, 16 guinea pigs and 2 rabbits.

Head Chef

Leanne Crompton is the Head Chef at Buckland Court, and has worked for the Trust for 6 years.
She loves her job, as seeing the residents enjoying their food and socialising at mealtimes is really satisfying. They strive hard for inclusion at Buckland Court and this includes their meals. Leanne and her team work hard to make sure that the meals they make suit everyone's tastes and dietary requirements. 
Outside of work, Leanne's husband and two children keep her busy, but she does find time to play in the local Netball team, and this helps her unwind and stay fit!

Head of Care

Katie has worked for the Trust since October 1997 and has worked in care for 35 years. Katie decided to work in care because she had done a college course and did a placement at Bartlett House when she was 19. She really enjoyed this so applied for bank work at Bemerton Lodge and then got a permanent job in a nursing home. Katie has worked in nursing homes, residential homes and dementia homes in numerous roles. Katie was promoted to head of care in 2017 at Willowcroft and before spending some time at St Wilfrid's Priory in Arundel, and now Buckland Court.
