Acorn Court in Redhill, Surrey, boasts a close-knit environment with highly trained and compassionate individuals cherry picked to work at the mature care home.

Stylishly decorated and furnished to an exceptionally high standard, the home offers residential, nursing and dementia care. It has picked up many awards along the way, which are testament to the excellent service it provides. These include the Caring Times National Award for Care Manager of the Year, a Surrey Care Association Award and the Great British Award for Registered Manager of the Year.

The family-orientated setting sees residents’ families as an integral part of life. A Relatives’ Support Group provides welcome support to those new to the home from families that have been in the same boat. They can provide advice, answer questions on what to expect, and assure you that everything will be okay.

I am so glad that we were lucky enough to find the home – I only wish that all care homes were like this.

Among the many facilities, the home features a well-stocked library where residents can enjoy quiet time or a bar for social interaction. It also proves a popular venue for hosting intimate private parties. The most recent were centenary birthday parties for two of the residents.

The grounds with a lovely patio plus sensory flower and herb gardens are in full bloom, thanks to the resident gardening club that works tirelessly to create a wonderful sanctuary for everyone to enjoy. The latest project in the pipeline is the installation of a water feature.

The weekly planned activities programme is full and varied. Residents can also go on outings which are arranged three times a week. These include local trips like canal boat rides, visits to garden centres and greyhound racing. Trips further afield include visits to museums and galleries.

End of life care

End of life planning is not an area that most of us like to discuss. However, this can be a vital source of help for families that perhaps have been told their loved one has a terminal illness and only has a short time left. We can help make this period as comfortable as possible for the resident. We work closely with a local hospice to ensure all emotional support needs are met.

At Acorn Court, our highly-trained team takes the time to get to know each resident – their medical needs, their likes, their dislikes and the things they are most passionate about. That way we can tailor the care exactly to their needs.

  • Monica Prosser, Home Manager

    Monica has been caring for the elderly for more than 20 years in various roles. She primarily worked in domiciliary care, providing assistance to those in need at their home. She joined Carebase five years ago, where the last two years have been spent managing Acorn Court.

  • Petra Stephenson, Administrator

    Petra has worked at Acorn Court since it first opened its doors in 2008, and in that time has built a fantastic rapport with residents, their families and visitors to the home.

    I am so glad that we were lucky enough to find the home – I only wish that all care homes were like this.

  • Ami Penfold, Activities & Events Coordinator

    Ami is a member of NAPA and has been in this role since May 2011. The residents affectionately call her ‘Amazing Ami’ as there no end to her talents, because as well as ensuring there are activities and therapies to entertain and stimulate the residents every day, she is always on hand to provide a helping hand to everyone, whether it be it a hair-styling when the Hairdresser is not around or nails and makeup if required for that special occasion. Ami can always be counted on to join in the fun with a good song and a dance, or for giving that special hug to ensure that everyone feels special and loved.

We love to hear from family members and friends about their experiences of life at Acorn Court. How they feel about our home, the care we give and the team that make that possible.

Knowing the ways in which we have made a difference and touched the lives of those in our care – and their loved ones – is what keeps us focused on delivering the highest standard of care at all times.

    Thank you for caring for Alfred, the time spent at Acorn Court could not have been made any better. We always knew he was being looked after, which made all of us who were close to him reassured we had made the right choice for his care.

    Dear Monica

    Having been here now for some weeks, I feel that I must express my appreciation and sincerest thanks for all the care I continue to receive.

    Without exception, all the staff are unfailing, helpful (and cheerful) and make my stay here enjoyable.

    I wish there were a means of tangibly expressing my gratitude but I appreciate that this is not possible.

    I am very blessed to be in their care.

    Yours sincerely,
    Mr Derek Lyons

    Dear Carebase,

    I wanted to write to let you know how grateful all of my family are for the care my father received at Acorn Court.

    I was very upset when I first called in at the home, but I will always remember the kindness and patience I received from the start from both Petra and Monica, which was very reassuring.

    My family and I were immediately made to feel very welcome, including my two dogs who Dad always loved to see. One of the best things is that we always saw the same care staff, so got to know them all very well.

    …I could go on and on!

    I am so glad that we were lucky enough to find the home – I only wish that all care homes were like this and had someone as exceptional as Monica running them.

    With my very best wishes,
    Jan Bell

    Dear Monica

    Words cannot express the gratitude Roger and I have for all the care, attention and love you showed mum during her stay in Acorn Court.  Not only did all the staff take great care of her daily needs, but the fact that each resident is treated according to their individual requirements was very reassuring to know.

    The caring atmosphere starts on first entering the home, with the friendly greeting from the staff who were always very helpful.  The reception area always looked very bright and decorated differently according to the time of year.
    We are so grateful for the understanding and advice you provided us with through the whole process.

    Thank you once again to all at Acorn Court,
    Roger and Diane Todd
