Quality care and support.
Offering an exclusive, individual lifestyle, The Summers is a beautiful purpose built centre, that has recently been refurbished to the highest standards. It is conveniently located within easy reach of Kingston town centre and Hampton Court. This luxurious 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 grounds, The Summers Residential Care Home has a combination of four luxurious, independent wings. Each wing consists of six to ten bedrooms all with en-suite shower rooms and a multi-purpose lounge, dining and activities area. Many of our well-appointed bedrooms enjoy glorious views of the gardens below and 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.
The Summers is 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 The Summers we have a selection of comfortable relaxation areas for our residents to use. This includes a dedicated activities and reminiscence area. Our dedicated Bistro, with wide-screen TV offers multi-function area for film, music and reminiscence therapy, as well as a place for residents, their friends and families to relax. We also benefit from an on-site hairdressing salon and nail bar.
