Our Building and Facilities

A real home has as much personality as the people who live there. That’s why we’ve made Kingston a place you’d be proud and happy to live in – just as you would your own home.

Kingston Care Home, in southwest London, is located close by to the area’s amenities, including relaxing river walks, shops, and the historic market square. With 67 bedrooms offering residential and nursing care, we think carefully about the type of room each resident needs.

Our bedrooms are set across three floors, and each floor has its own dining room, lounge area and a smaller quiet lounge, meaning peace and tranquillity are never far away. We also have lovely garden and patio areas, including a lovely sensory garden.

We understand that moving into Kingston will be a considerable transition, but one we try to make feel as easy as possible. By helping you arrange your room just the way you like, or bringing you your daily newspaper, we’ll do the little things that make the biggest difference.

Description

We’re a diverse group, from different backgrounds and with different roles, but we all have something fundamental in common – every single one of us is passionate about care.

From our Home Manager, Slawomir Janik, Deputy Manager and the care team, to our chefs and receptionists, we are always on hand to help, but with enough empathy to know when to leave you be. We're people who don’t have favourites, and who are always busy creating the little moments of kindness that make a real difference to life here.

As well as our team of carers and nurses, GPs do house calls on request, and the local Impact team of highly trained RNs visit the home on a regular basis. We also have local dentists, opticians, hairdressers and other professionals who provide services to residents at the home.

Care Homes no longer work on 'staff ratios'. brighterkind homes take pride in providing a higher level of personalised care for all our residents and have in place a suitably qualified, competent and skilled team to meet people’s care and treatment needs. Your Home Manager will discuss the level of care you require before you move in. 

When you arrive at Kingston, we will work with you to develop a personalised care plan that will include everything from your hobbies, exercise, and dietary preferences, to any health issues you might have. It will determine the level and type of care you receive. This can vary from minimal residential care to full support.

Don’t worry, if your needs or preferences change, we’ll change your care plan too. Care plans are monitored on a daily basis and reviewed monthly. There is also a more in-depth review every six months. Changes are also made if there are significant changes to a resident’s condition.

We try to avoid moving residents from their rooms if possible. However, if a resident’s care needs change, it might be necessary to move a resident to a room on a different floor.

The Importance Of Meal Times

At Kingston, we love our food. We firmly believe that when you eat well, you live well too. This is a core part of our brighterkind philosophy of care, centring on good nutrition and the importance of mealtimes as a social occasion.

Each day our chef prepares restaurant-style meals combining variety with a balanced diet and an emphasis on locally sourced ingredients. And we can cater to any dietary or health requirements, however complex.

We have a dining room on each floor and meals are prepared by our Chef at the home. Our dining rooms always become hubs of conversation and laughter, and mealtimes give even our more frail residents a chance to come together and socialise. Whether it’s Fish Friday or our annual barbeque and garden parties, we encourage our residents to make the most of living here. There’s plenty of people to meet and stories to share.

Of course, when, where and who you eat with is entirely up to you. Friends and family can join you as often as you’d like (at a small charge) and our extras menu gives you the option to order snacks at any time of the day.

Activities Are So Important

A willingness to get involved and try new things is something we see time and again, once people are given the opportunity. We have three dedicated Recreation and Activities Coordinators who oversee everything, but all our staff regularly get creative with new ideas, too. And our residents vote on their suggestions at our monthly activity meetings, so we can be sure everyone’s looking forward to something, every day.

Activities vary each week: from art group and film club, to music and movement and theatre trips.  And everything’s flexible – if it’s sunny we try and get outside, so everyone can appreciate the best of the day.

We’ve built excellent links to the community, allowing residents to continue their lives outside the home with ease. We have access to a minibus and have recently visited Richmond Park, Riverside, and Guildford Vinery. We often have local entertainers, musicians, comedians and school children performing at the home too.

Every brighterkind home now has a Magic Moments Club which provides a vast range of activities and fun things to do that are open to all of our residents:

Will I be able to bring my pet?

There are currently no pets in the home. However, it might be possible for you to bring a pet, depending on the type of animal. You can discuss this with the Home Manager. Relatives are welcome to bring pets to visit, but we ask that any health treatments are kept up to date.
