Our care home in Sevenoaks, Kent offers residential, dementia and nursing care, as well as short breaks, all from within a luxury environment.

Situated with convenient access to the M25, our beautiful new care home in Sevenoaks offers the very best care and support for the older community, from the most luxurious of environments.

You’ll find Nesbit House in the quaint village Badgers Mount, of the Sevenoaks District in west Kent. Badgers Mount is around 4 miles south-east of Orpington and 4 miles north-west of Sevenoaks – both of these towns provide easy commute into London if you’re not opposed to the busy city.

Kent is known for the great variety of orchards and hop gardens, often dubbed the “Garden of England” (first coined by none other than Henry VIII).

Very close to the home is Polhill Garden Centre, a family run business with over 50 years of gardening experience. The garden centre has all kinds of features that make it perfect for a day out with loved ones of all ages, offering garden supplies and food, and even massages, fashion shops and a huge koi pond.

Also near Nesbit House are the Chislehurst Caves, a labyrinth of man-made tunnels that cover 22 miles and have over 700 years of history.

Priory Gardens are another beautiful local landmark that residents at Nesbit House can enjoy. It boasts a fantastic rose garden and a lake full of swans and ducks, all perfect for a stroll around on a nice Summer’s day.

The surrounding area around Nesbit House offers all kinds of days out and shopping zones. Whether you prefer a quiet life or like to immerse yourself in the hustle and bustle of a busy city, Nesbit House will be the perfect place to facilitate your preferred lifestyle.

Our team 

We go to every effort to make sure we employ a team of highly skilled professionals – all in the name of outstanding person centred care.

Nesbit House give every opportunity to our staff to work in partnership with each other, by providing all sorts of training and growth opportunities. We make sure our team collaborates with internal and external medical professionals to keep our level of care as high as possible.

“The team are working hard on making Nesbit House a special place for our residents, their families and our local community. We would like to take the stigma out of care and make the Home a place that people look forward to coming to, whether it’s a visit or a stay,” says Charles Knowles, Home Manager at Nesbit House.

“Since August 2019 we have been offering fantastic care to our residents and aim to make Nesbit belong to us all, giving free choice of food, activities and interaction. We have only just begun and are looking forward to growing the home into a leading example in health and social care.”

Ours is a unique staffing structure, one that you won’t find anywhere else around Kent. 

Alongside Charles our other specialist professionals all help to ensure the home continues to run efficiently. As well as our Home Manager, we have our Clinical Lead, Regional Community Relations Lead, Wellbeing & Lifestyle Coach and Business Administrator.

We know that it’s crucial to invest in our staff to maintain our very high level of care. All our team members receive training throughout their time with us.

Person Centred Care 

Our person centred care policy stems from one simple fact of life – everyone is different.

We go above and beyond to give each of our residents the precise amount of support as they need – whether that’s constant support or hardly any, we give them the tools they require to live whatever life they choose to live.

Moving-in day can be stressful for everyone, so our team make sure to be prepared in advance for everything. We take time and care to learn everything we need to know from new residents and their families.

With the information provided, we make sure that we know exactly what kind of support the new resident requires, and have everything ready for their arrival at Nesbit House.

The transition into care can be a challenge, and with that in mind, we do everything we can to help residents feel like they are at home. Nesbit House has become a peaceful, welcoming environment for anyone and everyone to enjoy.

Our Clinical Team are on-call at all times to help residents as their care needs change, and we can adapt our approach as residents go through any short or long-term concerns.

Furthermore, our Homemakers and Wellbeing & Lifestyle Coaches are constantly engaging with residents, asking if there is anything they can do to improve their experience. This means we can identify changing needs whenever they might happen.

We’re not your standard care home. We strive to create a community in the home, where residents can build authentic and honest connections with one another and their neighbours in the wider local community.

Nesbit House is a supportive place where residents are given the tools they need to be independent. We want you to keep your existing hobbies and create new ones too. That’s why our person centred approach works so well – we pre-emptively identify how residents might choose to spend their time, and we help by ensuring their continued pleasure in all of the things that make them happy.

Our luxury care home helps residents to discover new hobbies, foods and friendships, as well as maintain old ones.

Our bespoke, sincere model of care works so well at Nesbit House because it is truly person centred. We empower residents to live whatever life they want.

The Homemakers of Hamberley

When Hamberley Care Homes first began, we noticed how stagnant the care industry had become. Most care homes provided almost exactly the same service, and we wanted to be different.

We wanted to pioneer a new model of care, allowing our residents to experience a completely holistic approach to their care. That’s where the Homemakers come in.

You’ll struggle to find another care home in Sevenoaks that offers something like ‘The Homemakers of Hamberley’ – these care professionals are carers, housekeepers, and companions to our residents, all at the same time.

Homemakers work alongside our Clinical Leads and nurses so they can appreciate the requirements of each of our residents and help deliver consistent, meaningful care.

As they’re also companions, our Homemakers are people residents can play games with, go out to lunch with, or just sit quietly and share a cup of tea with.

When it comes to maintaining our luxury standard of home, our Homemakers are on it – they’ll be on call for any housekeeping, making sure that resident’s rooms are kept clean and tidy.

Our Homemakers do their best to support residents in any way they can. We do our best to ensure residents are able to get out into the local area and get involved in the community, whatever mobility issues they might have.

We facilitate day-trips, activities and events that help residents embrace their life. Whatever you enjoy doing, we want to help you do it.

The Importance Of Meal Times

Dining & nutrition

Well balanced and wholesome meals made with fresh and locally sourced ingredients by our resident chefs.

Variety is the spice of life and our resident chef ensures that we serve a wide range of meals catering for every taste and diet. Our carefully planned menus offer well balanced wholesome meals, where traditional dishes feature alongside international cuisine and include varied seasonal options, every day of the week.

There’s no ‘rolling menu’ and we offer new options each week according to the likes, needs and wishes of our residents. We always use fresh ingredients in our dishes, including quality meat from a locally sourced butcher and have a wide range of homemade desserts on offer.

There are no restrictions on what and when our residents can eat – meals and refreshments are available throughout the day. A light supper menu will also be available for those who prefer to retire later, or wake hungry during the night. If a resident has any specific dietary requirements or need any nutritional advice one of our team is always on hand to help.

Home-like dining 

We know that being able to sit down together with friends and family to enjoy a nutritious homecooked meal is the foundation of a happy and vibrant home life. So that’s why our team members are committed to making every meal time an enjoyable experience for all our residents.  Friends and family are welcome to join and dine with us for a small extra charge.

We regularly adapt our menus to suit food preferences and changing nutritional requirements. As part of our personalised care package we work together with our residents and/or their families, for nutritional profiling and meal planning to ensure they are always well-hydrated and well-nourished. If it is agreed between our residents and their loved ones, our electronic care plans can also give instant updates on what food and drink has been consumed.

Many of our team are ‘Foodies’ with a real passion for cooking so there’s always opportunities for the residents to be involved in the preparation of meals if they wish to do so. Our homes regularly hold pop-up restaurant nights, speciality cuisine events and cookery masterclasses, which can be enjoyed by residents and families alike.

Activities Are So Important

Wellbeing & lifestyle

Our designated Wellbeing & Lifestyle Coach ensures that we create a nurturing and stimulating environment for everyone.

Our personalised approach to care means that we cater for all of our residents’ unique needs, providing as little or as much support as they require.

Happiness and harmony are at the heart of our home life and we have a designated Wellbeing & Lifestyle Coach to ensure that we create a nurturing and stimulating environment for everyone, residents and staff alike.

We advocate activities that promote physical and mental wellbeing but we don’t believe in waiting for an Activities Coordinator to organise them. Our team members have a collective responsibility to support our residents to continue with their hobbies or pursue new leisure activities, when they want to and not as part of a set timetable.

We provide a combination of fun and therapeutic activities that help our residents to be more physically active, mentally stimulated and socially connected. Working together with our Wellbeing & Lifestyle Coach all of our residents benefit from a Personalised Wellbeing Programme, which is reviewed every four weeks. The programme uses data from medical records, past employment history and personal experiences, interests and social activities, and assesses current levels of physical and mental ability, to create a supportive and nurturing lifestyle.

Wellbeing also includes self-esteem, confidence and self-care. We offer a Wellbeing Salon which helps to regain self-confidence by helping residents to relax and feel better emotionally and mentally. Our residents receive salon treatments every week and all our Homemakers are trained to give luxury hand massages. Our therapies are a great way to unwind, relax and get rid of unwanted stress and tension.

Homes also offer a number of mobility classes to improve residents range of movement, strength and flexibility which promotes independence and helps with a feel good factor.
