About Haling Park Care Home

Encompassing 70 beautifully decorated rooms, Haling Park Care Home provides residents with the opportunity to live an enriched and independent life in a safe and luxurious environment. Our ethos is to make life as comfortable and enjoyable as possible; this is achieved by combining the highest quality of care alongside a variety of enriching activities, based on individual preferences, all designed to enhance their general well-being. We provide a variety of high-quality facilities that all of our residents and their loved ones are invited to enjoy, as well as a stimulating activities programme of which our residents are always encouraged to take full advantage.

We proudly deliver around-the-clock Nursing Care, Residential Care, Dementia Care and Respite Care. Our purpose-built care home, situated in a quiet neighbourhood in South Croydon, is a true home-from-home where highly skilled nursing and care teams are on hand to provide comprehensive care that cares for residents as a whole. At Haling Park, we are not reliant on agency staff which enables us to provide the best person-centred care to our residents. 

Care As Unique As You

The dedicated team here at Haling Park Care Home takes pride in offering the greatest level of care, and each member of our team is highly-certified and proactive in their approach. Our team has been hand-picked for their expertise, friendliness, and caring attitude. The care offered to our residents is entirely tailored to their individual needs, both medical and in terms of interests.

Together with our resident’s relatives and friends, we take the time to get to know our residents in order to establish a care plan that is entirely tailored to their needs. Moving to our luxurious house in South Croydon should be the start of a new and adventurous chapter in residents’ lives, one that allows them to feel confident and happy while maintaining as much independence as possible. 

The care we give to our residents is straightforward, practical and above all, tailored to ensure they receive the most appropriate experience for them. We believe in looking after more than just the care needs of our residents. We aim to enhance general wellbeing, encouraging both active body and mind, by providing the highest quality of life for each and every one.

Going Above & Beyond

We understand a great family makes a house a home and we’d love you to be part of ours. Developing relationships with both residents and their loved ones allows us to create a detailed and deep understanding of those living with us, ensuring we know their likes, dislikes, and the knowledge to make every day as interesting and as enjoyable as possible. Our staff goes above and beyond to ensure all residents feel safe, comfortable, and proud to call Haling Park their home.

Our residential and nursing support team is here to help residents live an independent life with as much or as little support as they wish. For our residents who live with age-related physical, mental and emotional difficulties, our care services and professional teams have been put together to alleviate any and all stress that everyday routines can potentially cause; alleviating these day-to-day challenges allows residents to thrive throughout their stay with us. Our approach is more than meeting care needs, it’s about putting residents first and caring for the individual as a whole, allowing them to live the enriched and varied life they deserve.
