Charing House is set in its own grounds next to Gillingham Park.

The home provides residential, dementia, nursing and respite for up to 88 residents, both funded as well as private clients.

A conversion of the former Municipal Buildings, Charing House Care Home is an impressive building with much architectural beauty.

It is split into five separate wings: the Bessie Parr Wing, the George Smith Wing, the William Griffin Wing, the Barry Hodgman Wing and the Freddie Cooper Wing. All rooms in the home are en-suite.

The home is designed and furnished to ensure wheelchair access in all rooms. There are lifts to all floors and rooms boast a nurse call system.

Bathrooms have either a static bath or shower tray large enough to accommodate lifting aids.

Charing House Care Home offers a range of specialist equipment designed to support care for all clients. All resident rooms are fitted with a nurse call system and some rooms have pressure mats which are linked to the call system in place.

Rooms also have telephone and aerial points, and suite furniture – one of which has a lockable facility should the client wish to maintain safekeeping for personal effects.

Other facilities at Charing House include:

  • Sensory room
  • Private access to Gillingham Park
  • Hairdressing salon
  • Library
  • Numerous communal spaces
