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.

How carefully planned activities transforms' lives

Everyone has an inbuilt need to participate in activity and doing so can improve overall well-being and thereby quality of life.
At our specialist dementia home here in Tunbridge Wells, and in our four care homes in Eastbourne, Bexhill and Maidstone, investment has been made into our residents’ well-being by providing at least one full-time activity coordinator at each of our homes who work closely with the Care Team.

Canford Healthcare is delighted to announce the addition of the 3 Star excellent rated Ashridge Court Care Centre to the Canford Healthcare Group. 
Canford Healthcare already owns two nursing homes in Eastbourne; Inglewood Nursing Home and Pentlow Nursing Home, and a further two homes, Barty House in Maidstone and the recent newly built care home in Tunbridge Wells; Tunbridge Wells Care Centre and Maidstone.

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:

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.
