We provide residential care for the over 55s including dementia care, delivering personalised care designed to allow our residents to continue a full, sociable and stimulating life.
“Damfield Gardens came highly recommended to me through my Mum’s carer… It’s hard realising Mum can no longer manage on her own but the team at Damfield Gardens made the transition so easy… The facilities and activities are second to none and I reckon my Mum has a better social life than me now!” Margaret (daughter of resident)

“I had to make the hardest decision to look for a care home for my mother, after an extensive and exhaustive search and visits, I chose Damfield Gardens and boy what a home! The staff and manager are lovely, they can’t do enough for my mum and me. They’ve made me feel happy and that my mum is safe and very well looked after. I thoroughly recommend this home.” Rachel (daughter of resident)
Meal times are a real high-point for our residents, an opportunity to enjoy home-cooked food while spending time with other residents. With seasonal menus that are balanced for a nutritious diet there are many tasty options to choose from every meal time. You can view one of our sample menus here.
We also believe in the importance of being able to maintain independence, so our residents choose when they wish to eat.

I just want to say a very big thank you for the way you looked after my lovely sister so well, you were all so kind.
My mum has been at Damfield Gardens since November 2018 and what can I say? The professionalism of the staff, the care they take of her (both mentally and emotionally) and the trust she has in them give us immense reassurance that the hardest decision my family has ever had to make has been the right one for her. Particularly in this extremely difficult COVID-19 times, the home has put the health and wellbeing of the residents and staff at the forefront of their daily lives – as a family, we will forever be grateful.
I am writing on behalf of myself and my daughters to thank you and your staff most sincerely for your care of Kathryn during her stay with you. The carers were, without exception, most friendly and kind in their dealings with Kathryn even on occasions when she was perhaps not very co-operative. Will you please convey our gratitude to the members of staff involved.
Thank you for the constant care you gave to our mum. She did always appreciate everything you did for her. Thank you also for the support you gave to us her family, you always had smiles on your faces as well as showing concern. What a caring team!
I have thoroughly enjoyed my stay here this week and I can’t thank you all enough for making me feel and showing me the ropes. It has been a great experience and one I will never forget you have giving me many opportunities and I have been able to get a real feel for working in the industry. I love it! Wish I could stay with you all.

Our Damfield site offers residential care for the elderly: round-the-clock, personalised care from dedicated staff. We also provide dementia care for those with dementia type illnesses.
In most cases, residents are responsible for paying their own fees. If your “capital” is valued under £23,250, then your local authority will provide assistance. Capital means your house, savings and any investments you have.
If your spouse still lives in your home this is “disregarded” when calculating your capital balance. Any joint accounts will be split 50:50.
Speak to the care home and they will be able to advise you about their policy.
Speak to your social services about the 12 week property disregard scheme where social services will fund your fees while you sell your home. You may still need to pay a top up if the local authority only pays at their rate.
You may be eligible for a Deferred Payments scheme. This is where the local authority pays your fees and takes a charge on your house. They will charge you interest. All local authorities operate the scheme slightly differently so you will need to contact them directly.
If you have complex health needs, the NHS will meet your care home fees. This funding is known as Continuing HealthCare (CHC) and is not means tested. There are very strict criteria and most nursing home residents are not eligible. There is more guidance on the NHS website.
The fee should cover your accommodation costs, meals and essential care. Before you choose a home, check out what extras are chargeable. For example, hairdressing, physiotherapy and chiropody are often charged on top of fees.
