Our Values and Aims
kent House Care Home opened over 30 years ago as a private retirement home for 25 people who felt they were not safe or happy living on their own and who wanted a level of care, support and company in a homely environment. Most of our residents have come from the local area and many continue to remain in touch with families, friends and the local community. At Kent House Care Home we value each and every individual who comes to live here. We welcome applications from people over 65 years from all walks of life and with many different needs, who enjoy the opportunity to share and celebrate the richness and diversity of their experiences. We can assure everyone who comes to live in our home that they will be treated with respect and dignity according to their individual needs and wishes.
We value the relationships of people living at our home and encourage you to invite your families and loved ones to the home for social enjoyment. It is important that our staff are trained to high standards and adopt the attitude of CANI: Continuous And Never-ending Improvement. Which is very important to the owner Indi Toot.
