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.
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

Here at Four Season’s Health Care we like to provide training and support for all of our colleagues, helping them to continually develop in their career, making them the best teams we can possibly have in our homes.
One avenue of development that we use is our Preceptorship Programme. The Programme supports the newly qualified nurses as they embrace their chosen career path.
The Preceptorship Programme runs regularly across the UK, and it’s yielding some fantastic results for us.
Most recently, 9 candidates completed the programme which included a 2 week residential at Laburnum Court in Salford.
Feedback from the candidates has been very positive as you can see below:
“This course has been fantastic. It’s helped me to build my confidence whilst I’ve been learning on the job. It’s great to put everything we learn into practice straight away.”
“This course is great. The help and support I’ve received along the way has been constant. If I’ve ever been unsure someone has always been happy to help.”

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.”

Yo ho yo ho a priates life for me! could be heard around Marlborough Court Care Home in Thamesmead as residents and the care team embarked on a swashbuckling adventure.
Hayley Mercer, Personal Activities Lead, explained: “We took the residents out to watch the assortment of ships that sailed on the River Thames. The residents enjoyed waving to them as they passed, but were a little disappointed they didn’t see anyone walk the plank. We’ve decided to hold our own pirate themed party to celebrate the event in the home later this week. Residents and the care team will all be trying to outdo each other by dressing up as the scariest pirates. Watch this space to see who shivered me timbers and won the prize, find out who also walked the plank.”
