Zetland Court

Zetland Court is a listed building built in the 1840s. It has beautiful landscaped gardens and is a short walk from Bournemouth's sandy beaches.

The home provides residential care and nursing support for 71 residents and has a dedicated Dementia Support House.


If you choose to live at Zetland Court, you can enjoy our stunning grounds, our bar and shop. The Dementia Support House has its own sensory garden and sensory room, magic table, memory boxes, tablets and laptops to support communication and engagement.

There are plans to create a community hub for people living with Dementia.

Regular on-site activities include handicrafts, quizzes, exercise classes, bingo, sing a longs, pamper sessions and drinks mornings. There are regular visits from local pre-schools, musicians, singers and Zumba classes. Respite care can also be provided.

Each RMBI Home has an Association of Friends. Zetland Courts was set up in November 1982 chaired by WBro CBT Glover, the then Provincial Grand Secretary of Dorset.

The Association exists to improve the quality of life of the residents by providing extra resources that are not provided within the RMBI care packages. This ranges from arranging outings, supplying the minibus and wheelchair accessible car, which allows daytrips to the beach and other places of interest, transport to medical appointments and providing money for entertainers to come into the Home. We also buy Birthday and Christmas presents for the residents.

This is funded by the Annual Grand Draw and Summer Fete, which takes place on the first Saturday in June, other fundraising events and generous donations from Lodges and Chapters.
