In December 2018 CQC rated our home as 'good' overall and 'outstanding' for 'responsive', thanks to an 'innovative approach' to meeting people's needs so they enjoy happy lives. Accommodated in a magnificent Georgian listed building, combined with modern, purpose-built facilities and surrounded by extensive gardens, the home offers a high standard of care for up to 59 residents, delivered with empathy, compassion and dignity.
The bright, spacious bedrooms in the stunning contemporary extension have en-suite wet rooms and many enjoy direct access to the courtyard garden and views over the grounds. The characterful rooms in the older part of the building come in various sizes, and some also have en-suite facilities. Their traditional windows overlook different aspects of the garden, offering captivating views at any time of year. Some ground floor rooms have French windows that open onto the secluded courtyard garden.
Nursing and care staff are on hand 24/7, supported by the dedicated administration, facilities and housekeeping teams, while the activities staff provides a daily programme of interesting and varied activities. The communal areas, including the glass-fronted Willow Lounge which overlooks the Kent countryside, provide comfortable spaces to socialise with guests or other residents. The dining room offers an exceptional dining experience with plenty of choice on a regularly changing menu. Glorious enclosed grounds surround the house, from the traditional English gardens at the front to the wheelchair-accessible courtyard area, and a perfect mix of sun and shade. The summer house is a delightful place to sit and enjoy the outdoors, and also doubles as Santa's grotto at Christmas. The gardens are inhabited by rabbits and many types of birds, so there is always something interesting to look at! The home is only a few minutes' walk from the famous cricket green with shops and a train station close by.
Our dedicated activities team provides a wide range of stimulating and meaningful activities in a regular twice-day programme to enrich the everyday lives of residents. Here at Barty House we recognise each resident as unique individuals and work hard to ensure that each enjoys the best possible quality of life, in a safe, caring and stimulating environment."
