Old Wall Cottage Nursing Home is set in 1.8 acres of landscaped grounds between Dorking and Reigate in Surrey, has been newly refurbished and provides a high quality service for those suffering from dementia and related conditions.
At Old Wall Cottage we concentrate on making all our residents feel as comfortable as possible and a large part of this is creating an environment that feels like “home”; from the cottage style setting of the building and grounds, to the open door visiting policy so that families can continue to see one another as often as they wish. In addition, our full time, qualified Activities Coordinator ensures that an extensive programme of activities is an on-going feature of life.
The home has been re-configured to provide accommodation predominantly on one floor, and the recent refurbishment programme has included an enclosed, secure garden for the enjoyment of all residents.

Review of Old Wall Cottage Nursing Home
My wife and I looked at quite a few homes for my father once illness made it impossible for him to live alone. Of all the places we inspected, Old Wall Cottage seemed the most likely to be respectful of his needs and dignity, and it lived up to our hopes very well. Nursing staff show exemplary patience and skill, and the food is consistently good. Furthermore, when necessary, the staff will ensure it is actually consumed – after a long hospital stay, my father was very frail and thin, and OWC restored him to good physical health, although sadly his mind could not recover. The staffing ratio is high enough that nurses have time to talk to residents and establish a relationship: my father felt he was among friends. It is never easy making the decision that a parent can no longer live at home, but OWC helped make the decision more bearable. Some homes may offer more luxurious surroundings, but exemplary staff are far more important. OWC has got its priorities right. In addition, its location in attractive countryside means that my father was able to enjoy walks up to the last weeks of his life.
