Formed in 2007, Canford Healthcare provides premium-quality residential, nursing, dementia and palliative care in 11 comfortable homes across Sussex, Kent, Essex and Middlesex.

We operate four homes in Kent – Barty House Nursing Home in Bearsted (near Maidstone), Maples Care Home in Bexleyheath, Mayflower Care Home in Northfleet (near Gravesend) and Tunbridge Wells Care Centre. We have three homes in Essex – Cedars Care Home in Southend, Heathlands Care Home in Chingford and Willows Care Home in Romford. Our two Sussex homes are Ashridge Court Care Centre in Bexhill-on-Sea and Inglewood Nursing Home in Eastbourne, while our London homes are Hampton Care Home in Hampton (near Richmond) and Parkfield House Nursing Home in Hillingdon, Uxbridge. We also have support offices in Maidstone and Bournemouth.

At Canford Healthcare we pride ourselves on providing care that is truly person centred within a safe, comfortable and reassuring environment. Our services reflect the specific (and frequently complex) needs of our residents, allowing them and their families to feel as comfortable and well looked after as possible. Our staff are fully equipped with the skills and knowledge to meet all our residents’ needs, whether they have a medical need, are living with advanced dementia or are at end of life. Each has a genuine passion for caring for people.

Our aspiration to support our residents to live their best possible life – and everything we do as a company – is underpinned by our values of Care, Family, Honesty and Commitment. Strong and consistent relationships between our managers, staff, residents, relatives and our professional colleagues, as well as high ethical standards, trust, transparency, mutual respect and a focus on dignity, enable us to deliver the very high standard of care that our residents have every right to expect from us. We see our residents (and their relatives) as an extension of our own families, offering care with compassion and striving to go above and beyond the call of duty.

We have a strong team of incredible carers, nurses, administrators, caterers, housekeepers, facilities and activities organisers who have created a unique community in each home, ensuring that all our residents feel welcome and included. Our home managers and their deputies are highly experienced within the health and social care sector, while new staff have a thorough induction process followed by rigorous ongoing training. We encourage them to pursue additional qualifications to add to their expertise and further develop their carer in care.
