Fitzwarren House sits alongside MHA's innovative Stanton Lodge apartments on the outskirts of Swindon. It was purpose built in 2005 at a cost of GBP 4.5 million and officially opened by Glastonbury Festival Founder Michael Eavis. The building is spacious, has innovative use of colour and its design was featured at the 2006 Dementia Care Conference.

Half of its 64 places are reserved to provide individualised care for people who require nursing support and 32 places offer personal care to older people living with dementia.

A model of the holistic approach to which all MHA homes aspire, Fitzwarren House works to support spiritual and emotional needs as well as physical ones. Both the home's own Chaplain and a Roman Catholic priest pay regular visits, each of them offering friendship, fellowship and formal services. Pet therapy is also popular and Fitzwarren House has pets for residents to enjoy and relax with.

Other forms of therapy also support the home's focus on well-being, both stimulating and also comforting residents. Music and movement encourages physical activity and can help some residents recall thought processes as well as stimulating speech. There is also the pleasure of the surrounding environment as Fitzwarren House backs on to Stanton Park and its' plethora of wild birds and animals
