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.

The expanding Canford Healthcare Group, which recently acquired the Ashridge Court Care Centre in Barnhorn Road, has reached the finals for the South East Care Awards' coveted Care Employer Award.  It already operated in Eastbourne, Maidstone and tunbridge Wells and should hear later this month if it has been successful.

The family of a new resident at Tunbridge Wells Care Centre is delighted with how things are going since her mother moved to the care home in September. Here is what her daughter wrote about the home:

We are delighted to announce the opening of new purpose built Care home with 70 beds in a Pleasant residential area of Tunbridge Wells in August 2010.

The Tunbridge Wells Care Centre, a specialist nursing home for the care of people with dementia, will be welcoming its first residents, George Squires and Violet Knowles on 23rd August.

Located on Upper Grosvenor Road, the Centre provides 70 beds in a purpose built facility, and is the fourth care home for leading Canford Healthcare Group, which currently cares for over 300 people in the South East.

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.
