Guysfield Residential Care Home, Hertfordshire
Welcome to Guysfield Residential Care Home
You can find us in the beautiful conservation village of Willian, just a mile to the south of Letchworth Garden City, in Hertfordshire. With all the amenities of a modern home, you’ll find first-class facilities with exciting activities, and plenty of places to relax or entertain.
There are beautiful gardens to explore and our residents like to make the most of local amenities – including the village shop, post office and our local pubs: ‘The Fox’ and ‘The Three Horseshoes’.
We walked 30 miles in September!
At Guysfield Residential Home, we participated in the 'Walk 30 miles in September' charity fundraiser in support of Dementia UK, and as a company we raised an incredible £1522!

Daily Life at Guysfield Residential Home
Keeping things personal
The wonderful surroundings at Guysfield are matched by the standard of care our team brings residents. We love learning as much as we can about the people we care for, so your loved one’s time is tailored to their individual needs, interests and preferences. This can be as small as knowing when they like to wake up, to how they like their tea, and everything in between.
We give as much independence as possible, letting individuals choose how to run the home and if they prefer dinner in front of the TV, or even dusting their own room, we’ll make it happen. Just as putting their own stamp on their bedroom, we’ll help them to personalise it with the things they love.
Mum has only been here a few weeks and the staff have all been very caring. Nothing is too much trouble for them and apparently, the food is amazing.
I will always recommend Guysfield as being the best place to care for our family member. The care and compassion given by the staff and management is outstanding.
The staff are very friendly and caring and always make time for relatives to chat if needed. Excellent care, clean and welcoming. I have such comfort knowing my Dad is in such a great home.
We consistently apply infection control procedures and services that meet or exceed the requirements and expectations of our customers.

Our Head Chef and the team have many years of cooking experience. They craft their nutritionally balanced menus using seasonal produce, and are guided by the feedback provided to them from our residents during their monthly hospitality meetings and individual care plans.
All members of our care teams are given the training and support needed to help them provide the highest standards of care.
Caring Homes has been providing care for over 25 years. Every team member receives our unique ‘Living in my World’ dementia training which is accredited by City and Guilds.
It highlights the importance of meaningful activities and a stimulating environment for people living with dementia, as well as addressing clinical aspects of care.
The ‘Food in my World’ training, also accredited by City and Guilds provides the hospitality team and chefs with the skills and knowledge to stimulate senses and increase creativity in the cooking and presentation of food. This can provide a much-improved dining experience for residents living with dementia and or dysphagia.
The length of time people spend in a care home varies according to their needs and preferences. Our homes offer permanent care to suit your needs or perhaps a respite stay might be required during a period of convalescence after being in hospital. Day Care is also available at many homes to ensure care can continue when a regular carer is unavailable.
