Nestled just a stone’s throw from the centre of the historic city of Canterbury is Connors House.

Connors House specialises in dementia care and provides accommodation for up to 48 older people in a single storey purpose built home.

The home has an excellent range of communal facilities with a number of seating areas, an activity room and a beautifully renovated courtyard, boasting sensory features, seating areas and a BBQ.

Each bedroom has a washbasin, mirror, chair, bed and a wardrobe and some offer en-suite facilities. Residents are encouraged to bring their identity to the home and decorate their room to their own taste, with their own furnishings.

The home has a dedicated activity co-ordinator and there is always something fun going in, from afternoon tea parties and visits from the local drama students to craft mornings and days at the beach.

Resident’s guests are welcome to join them in their room and visiting hours are not restricted, we find that our open door policy helps us to create a community within the home.

Staff at the home manage all cleaning and laundry, however, residents sometimes like to help out and carry on a part of their routine.

Pets are very important to the Society as we feel they benefit our residents greatly. Connors House is home to Porridge the rabbit and two birds, Percy and Lucy.

Connors House is split into 3 wings:

Ash & Cedar Suite – Caters for people who may have mild dementia

Holly & Evergreen Suite – Caters for people who have advanced dementia and higher level care needs.

Maple Suite – Caters for people who are not necessarily reliant on 24-hour care, but may need some personal care assistance.
