Our Residents

At Barty House we pride ourselves on going above and beyond, and one of the most important parts of our job is getting to know our residents. Their likes, dislikes, how they take their tea and what time they prefer to get up in the morning. But, we also like to get to know where they have come from, what job they used to do – because the better we know them, the more we can help them settle in and make Barty Hose their home.

As part of the British Food Fortnight, Barty payed tribute to the men and women of the 1940’s. The team sent the home back in time, decorating the dining room with flags, sand backs and the team even dressed up as land girls!

A Tribute to Elvis and a Tribute to Brenda

Brenda strikes again doing frankly what only Brenda can.

Brenda has worked for Barty House Nursing Home helping in almost every department since June 2004, having spent 33 years working for the London Borough of Hackney as a Rehabilitation Care Worker. Brenda then retired (for the first time) early at a mere 57 years old due to a knee operation. Moving to Kent and becoming bored she came to work at Barty House, retiring for the second time two years ago. Brenda however, transferred straight onto bank staff and has worked at the home ever since on a part time basis. Age 73 years young Brenda shows no sign of slowing down!
