The right choice for exceptional living.
Offering an exclusive, individual lifestyle, Surrey Heights is a beautiful Victorian Mansion and the former home of George Eliott. Set in beautiful, south facing, grounds on the crest of the Surrey Hills, our home is conveniently located a short distance from the A3 and within walking distance of Witley station. Once the country House of George Eliott, this exquisite care centre aims to transform people’s lives through the delivery of high quality services in a friendly, home-like environment.
Set in a quiet location, in its own beautifully landscaped gardens, Surrey Heights Dementia Care Home has a combination of luxurious, single en-suite rooms, and larger, companion rooms for those wishing for company. Many of our well-appointed bedrooms enjoy glorious views of the gardens below and surrounding Surrey countryside. Our residents can choose to have personal, flat-screen TVs with Freeview and direct dial telephones in the comfort of their bedroom.
Using a “person-centred” approach based on leading theory in current Dementia practice, we work with families, to create a Life Story for each resident. This allows us to get to know each individual’s personal history whilst helping to revisit memories and experiences of by-gone eras. This, coupled with the superior care delivered by our registered manager and dedicated team of nurses and health care staff, ensures that all residents receive 24-hour care and support whilst maintaining privacy, choice, dignity and independence.
Our team, consisting of the Home Manager and carefully selected healthcare staff, work alongside our doctors and consultants to ensure the best quality of life for our residents. Excellence in the provision of care and services is achieved through continuous training from external experts and quality improvement.
We are registered with the Care Quality Commission to provide specialist, residential care for seniors in early stages of Dementia, Alzheimer’s and related illnesses; offering residential care for those who need 24-hour personal and practical support, as well as respite and day-care to support families and carers.
At Surrey Heights we have a selection of comfortable relaxation areas for our residents to use. This includes a choice of two attractive lounges which have retained many of their original features. Here, residents can part-take in activities, watch television and entertain guests. Our dedicated TV room, with cinema TV offers multi-function area for film, music and reminiscence therapy, along with other organised activities.
