There are several lounges and dining areas throughout the home, plus a large, sunny conservatory overlooking the garden. We have a lovely garden and enclosed paved courtyards, with plenty of room to sit out on sunny days with a cup of tea.

As well as providing high-quality care and support for you, we care about your families too. Our door is always open for a chat, and our residents and families forum gives you a way to support each other. Plus, your family members are welcome in at any time, for a cuppa, or to join us for a meal.

Social activities

We place great emphasis on social activities and maintaining the type of life you have had at home, whether that is quiet and relaxed or an active lifestyle.


At Chalgrove Care and Nursing Home you will be served freshly prepared home cooked meals by our team of expert chefs. They ensure all our meals are healthy, nutritionally balanced and, most importantly, locally sourced wherever possible. Meals are served in one of our superb dining rooms, but you also have the option for food to be served in your room for a more private dining experience.

Nutrition is an important part of the care we provide. That’s why our catering team take time to get to know your likes and dislikes before putting together a vibrant and varied menu for you to choose from.


The bedrooms at Chalgrove Care and Nursing Home are in two wings: Edwardian, where we provide nursing care, and Tudor, our residential building.

Across the two wings there are 57 bedrooms for people living at Chalgrove, three of which can accommodate couples. All our bedrooms have an en-suite or washbasin in the room. All our rooms have accessible bathrooms nearby.

Many of the bedrooms look out onto the garden, and lots of our ground-floor bedrooms have direct garden access.


We have a lovely large secure lawned garden and enclosed paved courtyards, with plenty of room to sit out on sunny days. These outdoor spaces are equipped with planters and flower beds to indulge in your love for gardening and relish home-grown vegetables.

Funding may be available from your local authority. Firstly, they will check how much help and what kind of care you need: this is the needs assessment. Following on from that, the free financial assessment calculates the total cost of care and how much you’ll need to contribute.

If you don’t want a financial assessment you can choose to pay for your care home yourself – this is called self-funding.

Here at Chalgrove we offer tailored 24-hour a day respite care that allows you to continue living life your way with as much support you may need from our care team.

This could be a one-off stay, to give a regular family carer a much-needed break, or a regular arrangement to give you variety in your care. Our personalised care can last as long as you need it to and can start within 24-hours.
