Breton Court provides outstanding residential, respite and day care. The Home has a warm and friendly atmosphere, and is set in an acre of landscaped gardens with tranquil duck pond. The 26-bedroom building is a single-story, so residents are free from stairs and lifts.

We place great emphasis on creating appetising and nutritious meals, and are pleased to cater for special diets. Friends and relatives are always welcome for a relaxing visit, or to take part in recreational activities.

The home employs over 30 staff to provide round-the-clock care, and assist in residents; daily lives. If necessary, medical support is provided by Ivy Court Surgery and community nurses.

The Home is in the village of St Michaels. Residents enjoy the peaceful, rural surroundings within easy reach of local shops, church and pub. Tenterden is just 2 miles away, and our own minibus is available for day trips and outings.

We look after our residents in the best way possible, in a warm and friendly home-from-home environment, creating a loving atmosphere to meet the needs of all individuals.

We regard each person as unique and special. We recognise everyone’s right to air their views, voice their opinions, and make choices. We also believe they should be informed of their condition, and be given help in understanding how to accept their assessed care needs.

An important part of our philosophy includes the provision of high quality care, with respect for the privacy and dignity of each individual being of the utmost importance. Care plans are created from an assessment of individual needs, ensuring the retention of dignity, whilst offering as much independence as possible.

Above all, we strive to create a Care Home, which is warm, friendly, comfortable, safe and secure, so that those who are living with us can retain their individuality.

Activities Are So Important

We offer activities that are individually suited to our residents’ interests and hobbies, including music and singing, arts and crafts, card games, or painting and drawing. 

A minibus is available to our residents for outings ranging from organised day trips to shorter drives in the local countryside or nearby town.

We have a dedicated activity coordinator who takes her time to get to know our residents and offer activities based on their individual interests. She also helps to organise get-togethers and social events.

At Breton Court we celebrate all the annual cultural festivals with friends and family as well as making birthdays special.

Residents are encouraged to continue to pursue personal interests and hobbies, in an attempt to facilitate a smooth transition and give them a sense of identity.  In addition, we source external healthcare professionals such as doctors, dentists, district nurses, psychiatrists, physiotherapists and chiropodists in order that we can provide the best possible medical attention to those in our care.

We also encourage our residents to do things for themselves, wherever possible, instead of making them unnecessarily reliant on others. Redecorating their bedrooms, helping to tend our gardens, or making themselves busy in our kitchen are just some of the ways in which our residents are able to express themselves, at the same time giving them the opportunity to feel useful and a part of the community.
