Deer Park View Care Centre is a prestigious purpose built care home located opposite one of the largest royal parks, Bushy Park in the heart of Teddington.

Deer Park View provides residential, nursing and specialist dementia care for up to 60 elderly people. Laid out over three storeys, each floor is self contained, ensuring that residents enjoy close care and support – creating three linked communities under one roof. The specialist dementia care provision has been designed to meet the University of Stirling’s standards, which are widely acknowledged as providing the best living environment for people living with dementia. Stirling’s Dementia Services Development Centre is renowned as the world leader in this field. The Stirling approach ensures that residents are able to move freely around the home, with bedrooms and communal areas appropriately laid out and clearly signposted to minimise confusion or disorientation. Each bedroom features a memory box by its front door, where mementos from a resident’s life help to personalise their room and also remind staff and visitors of the individual’s life story.

The care centre is organised so as to create a homely and social feel, being self-contained, with comfortable lounge and social areas.

From the minute I visited Deer Park View I knew it was the home for my father's needs. It is superbly run and a fine manager sets the tone for a first class nursing home. All the staff care sincerely for their patients and also have time to show compassion for the relatives.

My friend had dementia and is therefore on the top floor of Deer Park View. Because I live near I visit very regularly and never fail to be impressed by the care taken of Jean and the other residents. They are always clean and well dressed. There are sometimes 5 of the care workers helping to take them into meals. They have infinite patience. I am lucky to have found Deer Park View.

My mum moved here a year ago after she could no longer manage to live at home. We were naturally anxious at first. The staff took time to explain how mum was settling and reassured us. Nutrition and hydration are well managed. There is a varied programme of activities which residents are encouraged to join - weekly cinema is very popular. Bushy Park is across the road and Kingston a short walk away.

Deer Park View was simply a wonderful experience for my mother for her short period (two and a half weeks) of convalescence. All the staff are so warm and friendly. Nothing is too much trouble. Fantastic care where my mother felt very safe and received excellent attention. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it!!
