Ashbrook Court in Sewardstone, London, is a purpose-built elderly care home, which offers the very best in nursing, residential and dementia care.
The care home sees everyone as an individual and this is reflected in the peson centred care it offers. Residents are assigned key workers to oversee their individual care plan. The team makes huge efforts in making residents and their families feel right at home, which is commented on by visitors to the home.
Split into three tastefully decorated specialist units which all have spacious lounge, bar and dining areas. The lovely grounds are surrounded by farmlands, with rambling trails that residents can also enjoy. The home is just a stone’s throw away from Lee Valley Park, which is another spot that features high on the home’s weekly planned activities list.
Each mealtime is made into a special event with residents selecting from plated-up food rather than menus so they can make a more informed choice.
The specialist dementia care areas are given a different feel, incorporating photographs of events that have happened over the years and vintage black and white prints. The spaces feature lots of tactile material and interesting objects to to pick up and touch.

We love to hear from family members and friends about their experiences of life at Ashbrook Court. How they feel about our home, the care we give and the team that make that possible.
Knowing the ways in which we have made a difference and touched the lives of those in our care – and their loved ones – is what keeps us focused on delivering the highest standard of care at all times.
My family and I would like to thank everyone for the special care you and your carers took of my dad.. I would especially like to thank the carers who never altered the standard of care given to my dad.
To put a loved one in a nursing home was a very hard decision. The care that my dad received was such that the hard decision had become a comforting one. I could not place a value on the level of special care he received.
