    Our Maidstone care home will offer a full range of older people’s care services in hotel-style surroundings, including a café, hair and beauty salon, bar and cinema. The highly trained, professional team will deliver permanent and short-term nursing and residential care, as well as dementia care and end of life care for up to 75 older people. 

    We will also offer step-down care, to help your loved one to get back on their feet after a spell in hospital and before returning home.

    Every aspect of your loved one’s time at the home will be tailored to their individual preferences, needs and wishes, as our team will work with you and your loved one to find out all they can about their life and goals for the future.

    We believe that moving into a care home is just another part of life, so our lifestyle team will organise an exciting range of group and one-to-one activities, entertainment and events so that your loved one can maintain their independence and interests. 

    We look forward to exploring our historic part of Kent. Stunning Leeds Castle is only a few miles away, and we’re close to the many seaside towns of Kent, including Whitstable. For shopping trips, Newnham Court Shopping Village is just a minute away, or we may a little further out of town to the elegant surroundings of Royal Tunbridge Wells.
