Welcome to Marlborough Court Care Home
Marlborough Court is in Thamesmead, south-east London and we have been rated as outstanding by the Care Quality Commission. Ours is the only home in the UK with a Deaf Quality Mark, and we are PEARL accredited.
Our team provides high-quality 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.

Four Seasons Care Homes across the UK pulled out all of the stops to celebrate National Care Home Open Day.
Events varied from home to home, but they included an Alice in Wonderland inspired Mad Hatter’s Tea Party, animal inspired fun with domestic and more exotic animals coming in to celebrate with the residents, to a right royal birthday bash, as the homes embraced the theme of celebration.
Here at Four Seasons, we’ve been celebrating all of our residents turning 90 this year as part of Care Home Open Day. The residents shared their stories with us. Find out what our residents had to say here: ‘Residents celebrate turning 90 by sharing their stories with us’.
Tim Hammond, CEO at Four Seasons, said: “Care Home Open Day is a UK wide initiative inviting care homes to open their doors to their local communities. Our homes across the country held a variety of events creating lasting links between the residents and their local community.
“Care Home Open Day is all about showing people what care homes are really about and how they can be at the centre of the local community, developing relationships across the generations.
“All of the people in our homes have different personalities, so it’s been nice to see how these personalities were reflected in the events that were held. The important part is that everyone had a fantastic day. I can’t wait to see what the homes have planned next year.”

There was a little bit of friendly competition at Marlborough Court Care Home in Thamesmead, as part of their Care Home Open Day celebrations.
Hayley Mercer, Personal Activities Leader, said: “We welcomed two local schools into the home, and they challenged our residents to a bag and t-shirt designing competition. Some of the designs were fantastic! Once they were dry everyone enjoyed modelling their designs on our make shift catwalk.
“After the children left, we welcomed Saxophonist Michael Lack into our dementia unit, and he entertained the residents with a few beautiful hits.
“To round the day off we had a lovely BBQ, and I want to thank Tony, our chef for cooking the food inside after a quick down pour put a dampener on our original plans.”

Two residents at Marlborough Court Care Home in Thameside embraced nature as they helped the Activities Leader brighten up the garden.
Hayley Mercer, Personal Activities Lead, explained: “Gardening is a really good activity for our residents with dementia to do, as it can stimulate lots of the senses. Shirley and May both helped me to plant flowers in the hanging baskets and planters around the sensory garden. The garden now looks beautiful, and I want to thank Shirley and May for their help.”
Once to residents washed the dirt off their hands, Elvis entered the building to celebrate May’s 86th birthday. The residents, her family and the team all helped her to celebrate by singing and dancing to Elvis.
