Magdalen House Nursing Home
It is very important that everyone feels settled, happy and at home. Our team work hard to make sure they really get to know our residents – their likes, dislikes, family relationships and so on – and all this forms part of an individual care plan.
We liaise closely with our residents, their families, and health professional such as GPs to ensure the plan continues to meet their needs.
Our caring staff are passionate about helping our residents to settle in and feel at home, from the moment they arrive and for all the time they are with us.
We offer sensitive, caring and supportive end of life and palliative care for residents whose lives are drawing to a close, and we also support their families up to and beyond the time when their loved one passes away.
What we offer
Magdalen House has accommodation for 29 residents. Everyone has their own room, furnished to a high standard with en suite facilities, BT phone points, a television, provision for Sky and a call system, and everyone is encouraged to personalise their rooms so they feel at home.
There is a sunny lounge upstairs, and downstairs there is a lovely, secure garden area which we share with the next door Kimbrose Club.
In the dining room, fresh cooked meals are served every day, prepared in the adjoining kitchen using local ingredients. Snacks and drinks are always available.
Hairdressers, dentists, opticians and chiropodists pay regular visits, to meet the needs of our residents.
Magdalen house is set in beautiful grounds, which it shares with our St Margaret’s sheltered housing accommodation.

What we do
At Magdalen House, there are many and varied activities. We’ve had Valentine’s Day dinners, a Scottish piper for Hogmanay and even a chocolate fountain! Wimbledon has been marked with a Pimm’s afternoon, and Christmas with a visit from Santa.
Regular trips out are organised to local beauty spots, for bluebell walks, picnics, or even to visit the resting places of residents’ loved ones.
Social evenings, quizzes, bingo and fitness sessions, all feature. As many of our residents were pet owners, a regular highlight is a visit from the Pet As Therapy dog.
Family and Friends
Visitors are welcome at any time, and can join us for meals or take part in any of the many activities we run. Tea and coffee making facilities are on hand, so they can make hot drinks and enjoy spending time with their loved ones.
