Homemead (Teddington, Richmond)
Welcome to Homemead
Residents and their families value our warm, homely atmosphere, which offers person-centred and specialist dementia residential care (both long-term and respite). Our expert team is regarded locally for going that extra mile and are the proud recipients of a Dignity Award (awarded by Richmond Social Services). Learn more about our approach to care.
Homemead was a proud finalist in the 2022 Markel 3rd Sector Care Awards for its pioneering use of technology.
Residents at Homemead have received their Covid-19 vaccinations, and we can arrange for new residents to be vaccinated. For more on how we are supporting our care homes at this time, please visit our Covid-19 FAQs page.
Meeting the needs of your loved one
We strive to feel like home first; a care home second, with our care tailored to meet the specific needs of you/your loved one. Each resident has a well-equipped, comfortable room which they can personalise with treasured possessions to make it feel even more homely. All of our rooms are single occupancy, although we have four rooms which are large enough to accommodate family/partners who are living with dementia and wish to share a room.
Our 'Out Not In' care strategy helps bring residents out of themselves and closer to nature, so they can gain more out of later living. Residents can also benefit from a range of specialist technologies for added safety and security around the home. Learn more about we can help you/your loved one in our Homemead brochure.
A peaceful, picture-box home
Based in a beautiful Edwardian house with a wonderful sweeping staircase, Homemead is a picture-box - with leaded-light windows running from top to bottom of the building’s three storeys. Caring for up to 26 residents, Homemead is situated in a quiet residential street in the sought-after area between Teddington High Street and Bushy Park.
We welcome both private applications and referrals from any local authority.
We can support a wide range of care needs and will help guide you through our admissions process. We have strong partnerships with local health and care organisations and residents also value being part of the Teddington community. Many residents are local to the area and there have been many instances of reconnecting with old friends when they move into the home. Read the common questions for care residents.
“The beautiful care team at Homemead; the warm, happy and caring environment; the gardens, the building itself, the other residents…all of these things make the place a lovely ‘home’ in every sense of the word.”
