  • Where you'll work
  • We offer high quality care and an attractive location in a lovely village.

    Stanecroft care home is set in the attractive village of North Holmwood near Dorking in Surrey. We offer residential and respite care to older people who are living with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia.

    Our friendly, highly skilled team is very experienced in caring for older people with a range of needs. We get to know each resident extremely well, so that we can create personalised care plans that take into account their individual experiences, interests and aspirations. Our aim is for each person to lead a happy and fulfilling life that’s as active and independent as possible. As well as planning regular activities for residents, we encourage and support them to take part in the day-to-day life of the home in any way they wish, which might mean laying tables for dinner, baking cakes for everyone to enjoy or watering plants.

    Stanecroft has a warm, friendly atmosphere and relatives’ families and friends are always welcome. The home is tastefully decorated, with light and airy rooms and living areas, and our gardens are fully accessible and secure, so that residents who are living with dementia can explore them independently.
