Addington Gardens Care


Our Care Offering

Modern with a ‘home away from home’ atmosphere, where our friendly and cheerful team, makes everyone feel welcome.


Addington Gardens caters for rest home, dementia and hospital level of care. Our rooms are spacious and all come with personal en suites. We also offer Care Suites at Addington Gardens, which allow you to enjoy the comforts of home with your own ensuite, kitchenette and lounge area. Find out more about Care Suites.


With a staff largely made up of many cultures, our residents benefit from the interesting contrast and diversity, as well as our ability to accommodate many different languages.


Our staff are not only well trained and competent, but bright, cheerful, happy and caring.


Ensuring there’s always something fun and interesting to be enjoyed is the goal of our Activities Team. They’re constantly thinking of new ways to entertain and fresh ideas for outings - for everyone to enjoy.


A passion for pets – something our staff and residents share. You will often find our resident cat curled up in a sunny spot – always happy to be woken for a stroke or a cuddle. Knowing how important the connection to animals is, we welcome family friendly dogs to visit us at any time.


Please feel free to come in and see us at any time. There will always be a pot of coffee waiting for you.

Our comprehensive activities programme includes exercise sessions, walking and talking, shopping trips and scenic excursions, craft activities, games and quizzes, live music and entertainment and more.
