Welcome to Charlton Park Care Home
You'll find Charlton Park close to Charlton village, south-east London. Here we provide 24-hour care for people over the age of 65 who have dementia or require nursing.
We're just a short walk from the bus stop. We have ample parking for cars and the home's surrounded by gardens with a large patio area for residents to sit.
Inside, the home has five spacious lounges and two dining rooms. All bedrooms are singles with en-suites.
At Charlton Park Care Home, residents are considered part of the family. We put their health and happiness at the heart of everything we do, and our dedicated team of nurses and carers actively encourage residents to take part in all decisions - contributing to everything from the way their rooms look to the therapies they receive.
Life at Charlton Park Care Home
Each week, the residents in each of our units enjoy 40 hours of pastimes, entertainment and diversions organised by our activities coordinator. These are varied and suited to each individual's needs and wishes.
We have a sensory room people love spending time in, and also a minibus which is used for outings. We have outside entertainers in once a month and themed afternoons.
A monthly newsletter is now produced to keep residents and relatives up to date with everything going on in and around the home.
Very impressed, good comments from other service user carers.
Relaxed and friendly.
Since my relative been at Charlton she is very happy, settled well. Whenever I visit it is a very welcoming atmosphere and staff are very friendly and they keep me informed of any concerns they may have, however small. My relative is unable to communicate her needs but I know that she is well looked after even though she has very high nursing needs. The food is all home cooked and looks very appetising and is of a high nutritional standard. I also had very good feedback from many friends who have visited who say how friendly and welcoming the staff are and they are pleased to seeing her so well cared for and content.
Nursing staff are excellent. The doctor coming every time is asked. Very safe and very friendly. Everybody knows everyone. Staff always on hand and activities are brilliant. Special requirements are given when asked relating to food. Happy, very clean, the rooms are clean and good. It's brilliant that we can have bits of our own furniture which makes the room familiar.
Charlton Park Care Home has a warm, welcoming, cheerful atmosphere. So many care homes that we looked at seemed merely functional. It was such a relief to find the difference at Charlton Park Care Home. There is a definite "family feel" Charlton Park Care Home. This coupled with the excellent care given to the residents has taken such a weight off my mind. I am confident that my mother will remain safe and happy at Charlton Park Care Home. I am very impressed by the standard of care given to my mother and other residents.
I would definitely recommend Charlton Park. The staff are so lovely and very caring as well. They are very good and prompt. Lovely place! We love him being here. Now we can sleep at night knowing he is looked after the way he is.
I have today visited my sister for the first time since she lived here. I have to say the staff, management and care is excellent. She is the happiest I have seen her in a long time. Some years ago I came here to look to see if it was suitable for an elderly aunt, it was horrendous, dirty and uncared for appalling. Now it is completely reverse Wonderful.
My visit was excellent and my wife has improved 200% The home is clean and well looked after and would like to live here myself.
My mum is looked after very well, by very good nursing and caring staff. Compared to other homes viewed by us we would recommend this one to be seen.

Four Seasons Health Care were finalists in nine categories at this year’s LaingBuisson Awards, and at the awards ceremony on Wednesday 15th November, the organisation was awarded with a well-deserved award.
The LaingBuisson Awards recognise and celebrate industry excellence and innovative services in the public, private and third sectors.
Four Seasons Health Care scooped the award in the ‘Nursing Practice’ category in recognition of the innovative approach to the advancement of nursing knowledge and nursing education within the care home sector.
Our Care Home Nursing Journal (CNJ) along with our individual Nursing Twitter channel (@FSHCNurses) won plaudits with the judges for being totally unique within the care sector.
Furthermore, there was a recognition of the achievements of the front-line nurses who have written articles, presented at conferences, won scholarships and been finalists at numerous nursing awards in the past 12 months. Again, these achievements are unique within the care sector.
Joanne Strain, Head of Nursing, said: “This is a terrific result for Four Seasons Health Care and real recognition of our growing influence amongst care home nurses in the UK. This is only the start of our journey and I want to dedicate this award to all our tremendous nurses across the FSHC family”.
Carol Cousins, Northern Ireland Managing Director, also commented on the award success. She said: “This award is recognition for inspirational nurse leaders in creating the first clinical nursing journal in the independent care home sector – well done to all involved”.
While CNJ editorial board member, and Clinical Lead Nurse of Cameron House Care Home in Bury, Craig Priestley stated: “I’m so proud we won – the CNJ is one of the best learning resources we have for Four Seasons Nurses. It has shaped and improved nursing practice and helped to improve quality of life – well done to all involved in its production!”
If you’d like to take a look at the award winning journal, it’s available on the Four Seasons website in the publications area.

When Daily Mail columnist Fiona Phillips wrote her latest article, a feature on bad care homes, a relative of a resident fought back to defend the care provided by Charlton Park Care Home in London.
The relative’s response to the article said: “My husband with Parkinson’s and dementia is there. All staff call residents by their first names and treats them with the utmost patience and care.
“The rooms are comfortable and the food is good, (I have meals with him often), relatives are treated with respect and any problems are sorted immediately.”
Miheale Munteanu, Home Manager, said: “It’s lovely to hear positive praise especially from a resident’s relative. I want to thank the relative for taking the time to defend care homes, and specifically Charlton Park on a national stage.”
