Located in a prime position on Kingston Hill and enjoying wonderful views over Richmond Park, the largest Royal Park in London, Galsworthy House is rightly considered one of the jewels in the Caring Homes crown.
This stunning period property was formerly home to Sir John Galsworthy, the novelist and playwright most notably remembered for The Forsyte Saga. The building has been sympathetically converted to provide the highest standard of residential and nursing care for up to 64 elderly ladies and gentlemen. Beautifully appointed bedrooms and elegant day rooms retain a wealth of period features, contributing to the unmistakable ambience of a home of distinction.
The impressive house is complemented by beautiful gardens, where residents may take the air and enjoy wonderful views over Richmond Park. The Orangery is a particularly distinctive feature and one that is much loved by residents and staff alike.
Galsworthy House’s stunning physical characteristics are married to a reputation for the very highest standards of care. The home offers a full range of residential and nursing care support, including trial stays, respite breaks and convalescent care as well as long term care. Residents are encouraged to bring important personal possessions to personalise their rooms. Galsworthy House operates an open visiting policy, where residents and loved ones may visit at convenient times. In common with all of our homes, Galsworthy House’s manager has a qualified nursing background. The home is fully registered with the Care Quality Commission and has ISO9001/2000 and Hospitality Assured accreditation.
