Review of Upton House on Monday 10 February 2014 by Susan B (Daughter of resident)

Upton House is wonderful and after searching so long for a caring home for dad we have found it. The staff are great and we can ask for no more. Could do with a lick of paint and renewing chairs etc. but it is clean and safe and most importantly loving and caring! Thank you

Review of Upton House on Monday 3 February 2014 by Diane Thomas (Partner of Resident)

My partner has been a resident in this home for 18 months now. I feel with the friendly staff's care and concern 24 hours a day, he is in a better place than I could have maintained at home.

Review of Upton House on Monday 17 September 2012 by Victor P (Husband of Resident)

Delightful Georgian house set in truly rural Kentish countryside. Owned and managed and operated by same family for over 26 years in true British tradition. Testament in itself where caring really is the watch word. No effort spared to ensure residents' contentment. Exceptional staff trained (EMI) to a high degree but receiving continuous further training. Limited resident numbers makes one to one care possible. Superb food, mostly locally sourced, leaves nothing to be desired. Pleasant surroundings and secure gardens.

Review of Upton House on Tuesday 28 August 2012 by Nigel Newton (Son of former Resident)

Upton House is an intimate and comfortable care home set in attractive grounds and comprising a period building in good decorative order. The home displays little obvious signs of being an institution which helps residents to make the transition to a total care environment from home. The staff and management are caring and attentive and meals are good.

Review of Upton House on Monday 20 August 2012 by Rachel P (Daughter of Resident)

Upton House is a care home specialising in dementia care. It is a beautiful old house in a peaceful setting, very well converted with lovely, large bright rooms and a secluded garden for its residents. It is always well maintained and clean. The staff are always bright and cheerful no matter what life throws at them during their working hours. I was promised that they would care for my father until the very end. A promise that they kept and I cannot express my gratitude to them enough, because that is what they did. The entire staff is kind and caring and they love all their residents. If I were asked to recommend a care home to anyone, this would be the place. There is not enough room here to express my true feelings.
