Canford Group Includes
I wanted to thank you once again for the excellent care which Daddy received from you and from all the Summerdown and Pentlow staff during his stay. He really could not have been in a better place for this closing chapter of his life, and once he had settled in and got to know the staff he was really happy to be so well looked after.

Feature - Barty House
- 04 March 2014
This month we are featuring Barty House, a Canford Healthcare Home in Maidstone, to illustrate how we believe the lifestyle in a care home should be.
It won't be long before we start to see all the bulbs at Barty House Nursing Home Maidstone break into colour. The first thing you will notice on approach is that Barty House is a truly impressive building, and at those special times of the year, such as when the spring bulbs appear, the garden complements this beautifully.
New Recruitment Appointment
- 27 January 2014
Canford Healthcare is delighted to welcome Amanda Warren as Recruitment Manager for the group.
Canford, which comprises five care homes and two domiciliary care services in Kent and Sussex, made the new appointment in recognition of the group’s ongoing commitment to employing and training quality staff.
The Group also recognises the importance that the familiar faces of long serving staff has on residents. Ms Warren shares that ethos and places great emphasis on both staff retention and minimal use of temporary or agency staff.
Ms Warren who has a wealth of recruiting experience spanning 13 years commented “I believe that great staff are undeniably a major strength for any organisation, and even more so within the care sector. Within Canford Healthcare we have many loyal, long service achievers and that is an asset.”
If you would like to work for an organisation which values its staff, current vacancies within Canford Healthcare homes can be found on the home’s individual websites.

It was comforting for my family to know that he was being looked after by caring and dedicated staff throughout his short stay, who made his final days as comfortable and pain free as possible.
