Balcombe Care Homes have been caring for older people for over 30 years. Much has changed in that time but our commitment to develop and improve our services has been constant. We’ve seen an ageing population where people are living longer and arriving at care homes with more complex care needs. They’re also – quite rightly – expecting ever-higher standards of care and service as well as excellent hotel services: food, entertainment, facilities and housekeeping.
We opened our first home in 1985. Since then, changes large and small have defined our progress and helped make Balcombe Care Homes the organisation you see today. We are proud to have earned an enviable reputation for providing exceptional standards of care, investing in continual growth and expansion, through the acquisition of new care homes and the development of existing properties within our portfolio.
Though we have grown, all these developments have been balanced with our commitment to provide the same level of attentive care and personal service that we did when we first started all those years ago. Our longevity has allowed us to build a family of care homes and foster a sense of community that ensures that everyone is properly looked after.
