The Chestnuts is a family owned and run Care Home and is situated in delightful grounds on the edge of the Kent village of Meopham near Gravesend, a short distance from shops and public transport.

They cater for up to 29 residents in a home that has been carefully modernised, extended and adapted to make living easier, while being beautifully maintained with many features of the original Victorian house preserved. Each resident is treated as an individual and able to exercise choice in all aspects of their care.

They appreciate that choosing a Residential Care Home, like choosing any new home, is a major decision that takes time and careful consideration. They therefore encourage people to visit so they can meet staff and residents, seek advice and ask questions. This will help them to make an informed judgement as to whether the home is suitable for their needs.
