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, and we are PEARL accredited.
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.

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.
The manager will always spend time taking to you and will help you with any problems you have. I would recommend the home to anyone
Excellent communications on progress and condition. The staff are very friendly and my mum is content.
I can walk in to the Home and feel comfortable. Everybody is always so friendly. It just feels like going to my mums house and I don't worry about going home.
The food is very good and if there is nothing on the menu I like an alternative is always offered. There are snacks and drinks available whenever I want one.
I am always informed of any changes to my mothers care or condition. Its gives me great peace of mind to know she is well cared for
The number and variety of activities provided by the home is excellent.

Three funds managed by County Durham Community Foundation will allow the Vane Tempest Bowling Club to replace their out-dated kitchen and enable them to provide in-house cooking for their social events.
The William Leech Fund, Four Seasons Healthcare Fund and Durham AAP Fund, all contributed to the kitchen refurbishment grant of £2,664 which was much-needed as the kitchen no longer complied with health and safety standards.
Established in 1951 and based in Gilesgate, members of the bowling club are mostly from the local community. It provides member with social and competitive bowling and it is a member of Bowls England and Bowls Durham. Members use bowling as a way to keep fit and active, maintain mental well-being and independence. The social side of meeting with similar minded friends is just as important as playing bowls.
The new kitchen will not only provide a facility for social events but will hopefully attract new members and an additional income stream.
Richard Leech, fund holder of the William Leech Fund, who visited the bowling club with Sandra Brown, Regional Manager of Four Seasons Healthcare Fund, commented: “It’s great to see the Club providing these facilities for older people to keep them active and foster new friendships. We have been able to help them in a fairly modest way through our fund and their request was topped up by other funds held by the Community Foundation. They offer an important service to their bowling members and we are delighted to support them.”
Sandra Brown, Regional Manager, added: “This grant fits so well with Four Seasons Healthcare corporate social responsibility. Our purpose is all about supporting older people through our care homes and so it was perfect that we could add to the grant to refurbish the bowling club kitchen - an essential facility for the Club.”
Sheila Chapman, fund manager at County Durham Community Foundation added: “Although our grants are fairly small, they are often vital to grassroots organisations throughout our area of benefit. The Vane Tempest Bowling Club provides such an important resource for local people and we are delighted that these funders have chosen to make this award.”
Ken Simpson, chairman of the Vane Tempest Bowling Club said: “We are thrilled to receive this grant and be able to fit a new kitchen which will mean we can increase our offer to members and potentially attract new ones. Unfortunately the old kitchen was no longer fit for purpose and the refurbishment afforded by these grants mean that we now comply with current health and safety regulations. It’s also great to meet the funders and have them visit our Club.

The halls are alive with the sound of laughter, as residents, relatives and the team all enjoyed a good old giggle as part of International Joke Day.
Marlborough Court Care Home in Thamesmead based home have set up a month of fun activities, to carry on the jokes all through the month of July.
Hayley Mercer, Personal Activities Leader, said: “Friday 1st July was the start of our joke month. So we thought for the first day of the month, without any pinches or punches we’d start our joke month off with a fun game of pin the tail on the donkey with our residents on the nursing unit.
“Everyone had a great time, although the poor donkey did have his tail in some odd places at times. We have lots more activities planned for joke month, so watch this space.”
As well as playing games the residents also had fun with some selfie props, telling jokes with some brilliant disguises.

Ladies from three care homes in London were treated to a sophisticated ladies lunch event held at Eltham College in Mottingham, London.
Hayley Mercer, Personal Activities Leader from Marlborough Court Care Home, said: “The ladies had a lovely time. They indulged in lots of lovely sandwiches, cream cakes, tea and coffee. The students who hosted the event provided the entertainment by singing and holding a little quiz. The ladies really enjoyed socialising with each other, as it’s not every day they get to come together. I know when the Marlborough Court ladies returned to the home, they told everyone what had gone on. I think some of the gents were secretly jealous.
“For residents going out and socialising makes them feel like they still have their independence, which helps them to continue to blossom at the homes. A lot of people have said to me, ‘I thought I’d just have been left in a corner bored’, and have been surprised when I’ve said what we do here not only at Marlborough Court, but across the Four Seasons network to ensure our residents are fulfilled.
“Everyone is looking forward to the next joint event that we hold.”
