Rectory House Nursing Home is a beautifully preserved historic building with a Georgian style frontage and inviting driveway lined with oak, pine and chestnut trees. The main part of the house was built in 1785, but the original part of the building dates back to the 1580's. The house has been refurbished but still retains the gracious features of the past - high ceilings and attractive ornate cornices. The two-acre mature landscaped gardens are perfect for residents to either relax or convalesce.

The main aspect of the house faces South with all of the rooms having en suite facilities and emergency nurse-call systems. Residents can also bring items of personal furniture, momento's and other treasures - all helping them to feel that Rectory House is their real 'Home from Home.' There are two beautifully appointed lounges where residents can relax, read a book or socialise. The conservatory with views over the garden is another place where residents can enjoy quiet moments.

Caring and qualified staff are on hand 24 hours a day ensuring that all resident's needs are catered for. Regular weekly physiotherapy sessions are held and local Doctors, Chiropodists, Dentist, Optician, Hairdressers as well as Clergy of all denominations make visits.

The nursing home is well presented and there is always a welcoming smile upon arrival. I would strongly recommend this home to anyone. The staff in all areas are friendly, kind and helpful.

Review of Rectory House Nursing Home on Friday 3 August 2012 by DAN PARKER (son of resident)

My mum has just moved into Rectory House from a long stay in hospital, what could have been a traumatic and frightening experience was made such a pleasure by all at Rectory House. It was an easy transition smoothed by excellent staff who were caring, reassuring, informative and generous of their time to make it a happy process.

Review of Rectory House Nursing Home on Wednesday 1 August 2012 by Peter H (Resident)

I made a really good choice. Unfortunately I have continued to have acquired terminal cancer and I'm becoming less independent slowly. To prevent any negatives I decided to be positive and contacted Rectory House, Sompting. Nice staff trained to a high standard, beautiful Georgian building (eat your heart out Darcy and Ms Bennett) great food, safety, happy move, cost, looking no further than under my nose.

Review of Rectory House Nursing Home on Wednesday 1 August 2012 by Pamela N (Resident)

This is my home now. It is a good home. It is clean. Staff take care of me. I see a doctor if I need to. Staff are friendly and kind. I am happy and could not be in a better home.

Review of Rectory House Nursing Home on Wednesday 11 July 2012 by Jeffrey D (Son of Resident)

I am pleased that my mother resides at Rectory House. The staff are extremely caring and it’s good to see the same faces when visiting. The home is very clean and always without unpleasant smells. The furnishing standards are high, nothing is tatty. Rectory House is a very good example of a well-run nursing home with high standards.

Review of Rectory House Nursing Home on Wednesday 11 July 2012 by Dorothy D (Resident)

I am a resident at Rectory House where they look after me very well. The staff are very kind and the food is good. My room is very comfortable, but I do enjoy being in the lounge with other residents. People come some afternoons to entertain us.

Review of Rectory House Nursing Home on Wednesday 11 July 2012 by Carole D (Daughter-in-law of resident)

We feel fortunate to have found Rectory House for our mother (my mother-in-law) and she is very happy there. The standards are high there. It doesn't smell of old people, as some homes do. The food is very good and the staff are excellent in their caring. Rectory House is a good example of how all the care homes in this country should be.

Review of Rectory House Nursing Home on Friday 6 July 2012 by Betty H (Resident)

I have lived at Rectory House for 10 years and I love it here. I was a keen gardener and the garden is lovely. I cannot manage to do any now but love to watch the gardeners. The staff are kind and are my friends.

Review of Rectory House Nursing Home on Friday 22 June 2012 by Peter David M (Husband of Resident)

My wife is at the home as a resident and she loves it! She is treated very well by a very friendly staff. The home has got beautiful grounds and gardens and they organise a lot of activities. She could not have found a better home!

Review of Rectory House Nursing Home on Friday 22 June 2012 by Brigitte M (Resident)

The home is lovely and so are all the staff. They always have a smile ready for you and treat you like human beings. The food is delicious and plentiful - After spending 7 months in a hospital this place has given me back my sanity and I am very grateful!

Review of Rectory House Nursing Home on Monday 11 June 2012 by Lesley R (Daughter of Resident)

My father moved to Rectory House and was given only a few weeks to live. With the outstanding care and re-habilitation my father is enjoying a quality of life we never thought he would see again. Dad enjoys all the activities made available to everyone. The social stimulation and genuine care of the staff at Rectory House is outstanding. Dad loves his food and this again is cooked and prepared fresh each day. A big thank you to the whole team at Rectory House who always make us feel welcome.

Review of Rectory House Nursing Home on Friday 1 June 2012 by Kathleen G (Parent of Resident)

Rectory House treat with care all who stay there, all are treated with respect. They provide good food, if needed special diets and vegetarian. The jobs are very challenging. It’s a good feeling knowing that the family don't worry. Staff are great with people. I have been going to Rectory for 5 years, and found the staffs always greet you with a cup of tea. I find staff take the people out, and also have someone who calls in with owls.

Review of Rectory House Nursing Home on Tuesday 29 May 2012 by Denise Dixon (Daughter of resident)

My mum went into Rectory House for a short period prior to her death, it was a stressful time for all the family but the help & kindness shown to my mum by all the staff was outstanding. I would have no qualms in recommending Rectory House for the warmth & care given to the residents.

Review of Rectory House Nursing Home on Tuesday 15 May 2012 by A H (Brother-in-law of Resident)

My sister-in-law went into Rectory House with my terminally ill brother over a year ago and following his death she has stayed there. 'This is your home now and we are your family', said the manager kindly, and so it has proved to be. J has loving care from kind friendly staff, a lovely room opening onto the garden where she sits out most sunny days, good home cooked food and entertainment, while the house itself is clean, odour free and welcoming. J has also appreciated the kind visits by the local (lady) vicar. Importance is placed on the individual's dignity and on personal appearance. J enjoys her weekly hairdressing appointments. Her mobility has improved at RH so she was able to travel to North Wales recently to scatter her late husband's ashes with the excellent support of the home manager. I would happily recommend Rectory House.

I have been in 4 homes and this to me is the best, as it is caring and helpful in every way one could ask for. Staff and facilities are first class. I would always recommend it to all folks.

Review of Rectory House Nursing Home on Monday 30 April 2012 by Rosemary H (Partner of Resident)

My partner Mr Derek F was a resident in Rectory House for 3 years until he passed away in December. I would definately recommend this home. It is very clean and well kept with lovely home cooking. They organise a wide variety of events and activities for the residents. The staff are very welcoming and caring which creates a lovely atmosphere.

Review of Rectory House Nursing Home on Thursday 26 April 2012 by Julie C (Daughter of Resident)

Relaxed friendly atmosphere. Good food, good nursing, approachable staff. Lovely grounds, great excercise classes, good entertainment for residents. Also appreciated is the offer of hairdressing, chiropody and holy communion, and summer outings to sea front and local garden centres.

Review of Rectory House Nursing Home on Wednesday 25 April 2012 by Neville W (Husband of Resident)

My 77 year old wife/mother was diagnosed with terminal cancer last June. From the moment she entered Rectory House the staff made her comfortable and happy. They looked after us, her family, like their own and we were always kept informed. They truly made the last precious weeks and days special and carried out our wishes until and after her death, when her own nurse dressed her to our instructions.

Review of Rectory House Nursing Home on Wednesday 25 April 2012 by Jan W (Daughter of Resident)

Mum was in this care home (Sept 09-Aug 10) and I can honestly say she was well looked after. She had a lovely clean room. The staff were all so kind to Mum who suffered with Alzheimer's. Visitors were always made to feel welcome. Mum was always helped to join in with activities and loved the music sessions. There was never an unpleasant smell in the home. Since mum's death my dad still visits this home frequently to help with activities and to visit residents. He has been made so welcome and wanted, which has really helped him grieving. I would thoroughly recommend Rectory House.
