About our Care Home
The home is situated in Ewell, Epsom. The home was originally a maternity hospital and has kept some of the original charming features. The home is set in its own grounds and had an extension added to the home of 10 rooms in 1984. At The Elders we are in the process of improving the technology and design of the building to offer a safe, stimulating and comfortable dementia friendly environment.
The home has 23 bedrooms, 11 of which have en suite facilities. We also have five communal bathrooms/shower rooms, a large communal lounge and dining room. This is surrounded by beautiful gardens which can be enjoyed by residents, family and friends.
The gardens are accessible for all residents and are well maintained to encourage outside living, with a lovely outdoor patio area for residents to sit in. We understand the importance of getting a varied and healthy diet, so we will ensure all residents receive nutritious meals.
Who we are
We are a not for profit company that has been established since 1956 when the dream of one man, Richard Carr-Gomm, became a reality. He recognised that a lot of older people were both neglected and isolated and he dedicated the rest of his life to building our charity that has been helping thousands of people across Britain and the world.
During our 60 years weve developed Richards dream and our 500+ houses and homes are run by specialist staff that are determined to provide all our residents exceptional standards of help and support. Weve developed just the right formula that allows us to flexibly provide individual levels of assistance when and where theyre needed.
We are proud of the quality of what we do, and not only are we monitored and regulated by the HCA and CQC, but we have implemented our own bespoke quality standard. At our last inspection by CQC in December 2017 the Home was rated an overall good.
You can rest assured that, with Abbeyfield, youre in good hands.
