Queen Elizabeth Park Guildford, Surrey
Queen Elizabeth Park residential care home in Guildford, Surrey is a community within a community. It sees residents, families and staff enjoy their time together.
This is not just a residential, nursing and dementia care home. Of course it provides all the features you would expect, like highly trained care and nursing staff available around the clock. But it goes much further than that. The interior is elegantly and tastefully put together and the menus are so delicious you’ll want to stay for dinner with your loved one every night. There is a real sense of home, where residents, staff and regular visitors create a vibrant community.
The many facilities the home has to offer include a bar, lounge and dining areas.
If a resident is agitated or distressed, the room helps these feelings melt away. The home also offers pet therapy, where residents are encouraged to pet and stroke a specially trained Labrador which visits twice a week.
There is no time for boredom here. The weekly planned activities programme is full and varied. There are outings arranged twice a week. A quick hop on the home’s private mini bus and residents can enjoy a leisurely coffee and catch-up in town or a stroll around the Horticultural Gardens.
For those who would prefer to be entertained within the home, Queen Elizabeth Park has plenty to offer. Live musicians come along and play the residents’ favourite tunes, where everyone has a good old sing along, whilst screenings of classic movies, complete with popcorn, are also popular.

To all staff at QEP,
I’m writing to thank you for the exceptional standard of care my Granny received at your home. The staff were really comforting, welcoming and explained everything. I would like to thank them for always being so cheerful and welcoming to any family visiting.
It was always reassuring and positive to be able to know that my Granny was in safe hands and being looked after as best as possible. It was also great to know she was probably enjoying herself and taking park in the amazing activities put on by the team, or tucking into her meals (or the something’s in between!). I always fondly remember of all the good times I’ve had visiting the home.
Thank you for everything you have provided for the residents and their families and this care home.

To Jean and all of your staff,
Just wanted to say a huge ‘thank you’ to yourself and all of your staff who took such wonderful care of Sylvia when she was at Queen Elizabeth Park for respite care. I think the fact that she didn’t want to come home says it all!!
All of the family are very grateful to you you all.
Thank you very much,

Dear Jean and Heather
I want to say a very big ‘thank you’ for the very best attention Eric received at Queen Elizabeth Park.
From the beginning I knew he was in the right place. I was in his room with his clothes, photos, etc when several members of staff came and introduced themselves and had a chat. On his 100th birthday, a great fuss was made of Eric and a party laid on at which all the family was able to be together. Last November we had a balloon and flowers on the table as we had lunch together to celebrateour 59th wedding anniversary.
I would reccommend Queen Elizabeth park to anyone. The staff could not have been kinder. He was so well treated by everyone with the utmost respect and I cannot praise the staff enough. Eric was always comfortable and contented.
My grateful thanks,

I would like to thank all the people at who looked after my mother, Veronica, during her stay at Queen Elizabeth Park. Her care was wonderful and nothing was ever too much trouble.
She always felt safe there, and the staff were always so sweet and kind with her, as they were with us.
All in all, Queen Elizabeth Park is a happy and well run home, and I thank you again for the excellent care of my mother.

A very big thank you to you and all the staff at QEP for the wonderful Valentine’s celebration last Friday.
You had all put so much thought and effort into every detail from the table settings to the personalised Valentine cards, which were very moving. It was a lovely opportunity to meet other relatives in a very relaxed setting.
The food was superb, and the handmade chocolates were very yummy! We all agreed it was a 5* service.
Thank you all.

I want to say a very big ‘thank you’ to everyone who made Erics 100th birthday party the success it was. Some of the family had not previously seen Eric at Queen Elizabeth Park and all were impressed at how well cared for he obviously is, and very contented. All the staff are always so helpful and supportive.
Thank you again to everyone.
