Home of Compassion Care Home is a Grade II* listed mansion house combining superb care with elegant surroundings and a riverside setting in Thames Ditton. Our home sets the standard in care home living. We pride ourselves on our exceptional, 24-hour nursing, residential and dementia care, practiced by our own team of leading professionals, and exceptional hospitality for up to 78 residents in sumptuous surroundings.
The Grade II* listed mansion house was built in 1786 for the Hon. Charlotte Boyle Walsingham. The decorative interior work was carried out by her daughter, who was skilled in ‘verre eglomise’, and still in existence are the gilded engraved gold leaf panels in the first floor library. During the late 17th and 18th centuries the home played host to famous politicians and writers.
We understand that dementia is different for everyone, so the care our residents receive is too. We train every member of our team so residents, families and their carers, can be surrounded by personalised support with our unique ‘Living In My World’ Training. We are proud to be the only care home group in the UK to have our own training which is accredited by City and Guilds. It highlights the importance of meaningful activities and a stimulating environment for people living with dementia, as well as addressing clinical aspects of care.
Our ‘Food in My World’ training, also accredited by City and Guilds provides our hospitality team and chefs with the skills and knowledge to stimulate senses and increase creativity in the cooking and presentation of food. This can provide a much improved dining experience for residents living with dementia and or dysphagia.
Located in the heart of Thames Ditton Village with its array of shops, boutiques and cafes, Home of Compassion occupies a fantastic position with easy access to central London. There are shops and restaurants in nearby Kingston upon Thames, Esher and Surbiton, as well as the lovely green spaces of Hampton Court Park and Bushy Park, for our residents and their families to enjoy.
Home of Compassion operates an open visiting policy, where residents and loved ones may visit at convenient times for them.
