Welcome to Marlborough Court Care Home
Marlborough Court is in Thamesmead, south-east London. Ours is the only home in the UK with a Deaf Quality Mark.
Our team provides residential and nursing care 24 hours a day. People living here have varying needs, from specialist support to general assistance with everyday living. We offer specialist residential care for those with dementia, and also respite care to give home carers a much-needed break. Some people stay with us permanently, others stay for shorter periods.
Residents pursue their hobbies in communal and quiet lounges throughout the home. These areas are used for relaxing and socialising in, and are great places to invite friends and families to when they visit.
Life at Marlborough Court Care Home
Our busy activities programme is tailored our residents. We invite professional entertainers to visit regularly, and there's always something going on, from quizzes to musical events.
Mealtimes are an enjoyable and sociable part of the day. Each dining area has tables laid with fresh flowers and linen, and our menus are displayed to show the choices available. Snacks, fresh fruit and refreshments are provided 24 hours a day.
We have highly nutritious and varied menus, and cater for all dietary and cultural needs. All food is prepared using fresh ingredients every day in our kitchens. Residents can choose to have their meals in their own room, or in our dining room and we encourage friends and family to join us for meals or afternoon tea any time.
Our aim is to help people stay as well as they can for as long as they can, so we understand the importance of being active and entertained. Why not arrange a visit and we’ll talk you through the facilities and activities on offer at Marlborough Court?
I feel at home when I visit my mother and feel confident that she is being well looked after, I wouldn't want her to be anywhere else.

Everything turned pink at Marlborough Court Care Home in Thamesmead on 21st October 2016.
The ‘Wear it Pink’ day was held in aid of Breast Cancer awareness, and saw residents, relatives and the care team enjoy a very pink tea party.
Hayley Mercer, Personal Activities Leader, told us: “The team all came in dressed in something pink. Our tea party was one of the biggest we’ve held here, and the pink cream cakes certainly tempted a lot of people. Plus the tea was flowing so there was plenty to drink. We raised over £60 for this good cause, and I’m hoping we can beat this when we hold the event next year.
“I just want to say thank you to everyone who helped. We all had a fantastic afternoon! Go Team Marlborough Court!”

Residents at Marlborough Court Care Home in Thamesmead celebrated World Animal Day by creating new food containers for the local wildlife to enjoy in their garden.
World Animal Day is celebrated on Tuesday 4th October each year and aims to raise the status of animals to improve their welfare standards around the globe, making the world a better place for animals.
Hayley Mercer, Personal Activities Leader explained: “The residents were working like little busy bees filling up the bird containers with food, before hanging them on the trees in our back garden for the wild parrots and other wildlife to enjoy. The residents had a great system going and I think we’ve got enough food dotted around the garden to keep the birds happy for a while.”
In the afternoon, the residents got the chance to get up close and personal to some very friendly birds.
Hayley Mercer, told us: “We were visited by an organisation which specialised in wild birds. The trainer brought a couple of owls with them, which the residents could stroke and look at. Some of our braver residents even held the birds which was a fantastic and special experience for them.”
