Personal Care

We understand that moving into a care home can be a difficult time for both the resident and their families. With this in mind, we encourage a trial period to help with the transition and deciding that “this is the home for me”. A needs assessment will also be completed to ensure that we can meet the resident’s needs before they move in. When a resident does move in, a plan of their care will be set up. This is written with the resident and will promote choice of the care they receive and help with daily living, for example, washing, dressing and medication.


Eridge House has a very homely and vibrant atmosphere which is clearly shown through our staff and residents alike. It’s easy to make new friends and enjoy the social company of others. Some of our activities include outings, music for health, physical motivation classes, board games, reminiscence quizzes, bingo, sing along afternoons and cinema afternoons. Services provided in the home include hairdressers and chiropodist. Religious services are also carried out in the home for those wishing to attend. Residents are encouraged to keep their links with the outside community, for example, attending church, day centres and personal hobbies.

Fees and Info

Fees include the provision of a single room unless otherwise preferred including 24 hour care and full board. Private and funded paying residents are welcome. The home’s manager will be pleased to advise you on the home’s fees. Details will be given of Eridge House’s policies and procedures, including our contract, complaints procedure, sample menus and the latest inspection report.

What people are saying about us

"Two years ago my father came to Eridge House it as the best decision ever made. The home is so warm and inviting it is just like home from home. My father is well cared for and all the staff are so kind and lovely nothing is too much trouble for them. The food as my father says is the best so I can now relax knowing he is well looked after. - Sue Bultitude"
"I would highly recommend Eridge House as a rest home for any potential residents. The care, compassion, empathy and support that my Mother-in Law has received since moving into Eridge has been above and beyond what we expected. My Mother-in-law had lived in her home for 45 happy years, but was unable to care for herself any longer, it was never going to be an easy transition. She is happy, clean and well kept, well-nourished and joining in daily activities from Bingo to sing along to baking, a new lease of life for her. Eridge has also supported us as a family, we could not have sorted the placement without them, especially Mel, which we will be forever grateful for. - Pippa Bull"
"My mother was admitted to Eridge House after much time in hospital. Her health improved by leaps and bounds with the considerable attention of the dedicated caring nursing and management staff. Eridge House has an air of an old fashioned country hotel, not a care home. All members of staff are unfailingly smiling helpful and polite. The residents are happy and afforded tremendous dignity at a time in their lives when help is very much needed. My sincere thanks and praise due to everybody. I visit Eridge House daily, to see my Mum. There is always a smile and a warm welcome at the door from the wonderful, caring staff. She has a lovely room in which she is very comfortable. Residents all seem happy in no small way due to the very attentive staff of whom there are a great many. I have known other residents in the past and visited them and local practitioners all speak very highly of the care given here. I cannot speak more highly of everyone at Eridge House. - Phillip Barrie"
