Peter Mclean

Stone House is an award-winning residential care home for the elderly close to Aylesbury, Bucks and the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is frequently recommended as one of the best care homes in Buckinghamshire and the Home Counties.

A former residence of Lord Baden-Powell, Stone House nursing care home is a wonderful property set on four acres of beautiful landscaped grounds. The house was originally built in 1862 and has since been sympathetically converted into a residential nursing home for 35 residents.

At Stone House, residents receive around the clock nursing care, delivered by an extremely professional team of highly qualified nurses and carers. A tailor-made and constantly evolving care plan, involving both family and friends and medical practitioners, allows us to offer very effective and well-received assistance.

As a resident, you need not be concerned, as every effort is made to preserve your dignity and self-respect, and to provide you with the choice you have always enjoyed in your life.

Personalised care in exclusive settings delivered by talented and compassionate people. A long-standing family business, with a reputation for an uncompromising focus on the standards of care and the happiness of our residents, their families and our staff.

Peverel Court Care has spent decades committed to staff development and training with all three homes now managed by long-standing staff who joined the group over 15 years ago. They have demonstrated and developed the perfect mix of compassion and organisational efficiency. Our most recent home manager, who took up post in 2017, joined the company in 2004 as a Healthcare Assistant. The group’s Quality Assurance Manager joined the group as a nurse at Merryfield House in 1998. This ability to retain staff in a sector renowned for high employee turnover is a reflection of the high value we place in our team.

Activities Are So Important

We take an interactive and holistic approach to activities, giving as much one-to-one stimulation as possible. Creative arts, games and reminiscence therapy are always very well received. Organising entertainment from lectures to singalongs and arranging visits to local places of interest keeps our full-time activities coordinator very busy.
