Welcome to Nellsar Care Homes

Celebrating 30 years this year as a Family Care Business, Nellsar is one of the South East’s leading providers of specialist Dementia, Nursing and Residential Care services for the elderly. Established in 1988, we own and manage numerous care facilities around the South Home Counties, offering high quality accommodation for up to 700 residents – including Day Care & Weekend Care, Respite Care & Short Breaks, Residential Care, Dementia Care, General Nursing Care, Nursing Dementia Care, Rehabilitation and End of Life Care.

We believe every one of the individuals we support deserves dignity, choice, respect and independence – these values lay the foundations for a high quality standard of life. For us, recognising individuality means listening to what people tell us and ensuring every day is thoroughly enjoyable.

Our philosophy begins with "How best to care for an individual?” We all have physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual needs, so how can we fully care for a person without all of these things being cared for? The key is to get to know who our residents are – their likes and loves, their families and friends, their careers, the choices they have made and the challenges they've overcome. The more we know, the better we can tailor our care.

 

Nellsar is one of the first Care Home groups to employ a Nutritional Therapist and introduce individual consultations and Nutritional Champions across the Homes, putting the holistic and nutritional health of our residents first. A combination of nature and science, Nutritional Therapy “acknowledges the kitchen as the medicine cabinet” and is extremely important to the elderly, particularly those in Residential Care with Dementia or specific health conditions or illnesses.

We also have our very own Well-Being Team dedicated to making a difference to the lives of all Nellsar residents through nutritional balance, nurturing touch, compassion and empathy. It is Nellsar’s mission to maintain our residents’ health and well-being. Ask us about the Nutritional Therapy and Well-Being Treatments available.
