Welcome to David Gresham House

David Gresham House is a care home with a family feel, offering companionship and 24 hour care for 29 elderly residents in single en suite bedsitting rooms. We also have five flats, four suitable for a couple and a studio flat for single occupancy, offering accommodation for those who wish to retain their independence whilst enjoying the shelter of the House. Click here for further details of the flats. We can also offer daycare and short stay/respite care.

David Gresham House provides a highly professional care service for the elderly, with an emphasis on reducing loneliness and isolation while enabling and encouraging individuals to retain their dignity. We recognise that David Gresham House is our Residents’ home and that they should be able to make it ‘home from home’. We set out to provide a happy family atmosphere in spacious and well-equipped surroundings. We aim to take into account each individual’s needs, so that they can feel relaxed, comfortable and free from unnecessary worries.

The purpose-built House, in its own attractive landscaped grounds, is within walking distance of churches, post office, local shops, bus stop and station. It was opened in 1986 and there is a regular programme of maintenance and upgrading, the most recent of which was completed in 2012.

The Abbeyfield Movement

The national Abbeyfield Society began in the mid-fifties with the aim of providing support and companionship for elderly people living on their own. The first venture, in South London, was a ‘sheltered’ house where nine residents and a housekeeper lived as an extended family unit.

Whilst it is affiliated to that Society, The Abbeyfield North Downs Society is independent and responsible for all aspects of the services provided at David Gresham House. Formed in 1982 under the Industrial and Provident Societies Act, it is an exempt charity regulated by The Financial Conduct Authority and is also registered with the Homes and Communities Agency H3370 and with the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
