Eglantine Villa

Eglantine Lane, Horton Kirby,

Welcome to Eglantine Villa Care Home in Dartford

The stunning Eglantine Villa is a converted private residence that's been converted and modernised to a very high standard. It offers a delightful 50-room residential and nursing home set in three-and-a-half acres of beautiful gardens. The home is made up of two separate buildings (Jasmine Lodge and Lavender Cottage) that provide very specialist care. Both have the benefit of access to the glorious landscaped gardens – complete with conservatory and patio area.

We aim to provide as comprehensive a range of care as possible, so are able to offer 24-hour convalescent, respite, Parkinson's, palliative and frail elderly nursing care. Those needing specialist and personalised dementia care will find that in Lavender Cottage.

Life at Eglantine Villa Care Home

We believe that regular and stimulating activities are the key for social interaction and general well-being, and that's why we have a packed schedule of fun things to do at Eglantine Villa.

Our activities

At Eglantine Villa our residents have the freedom to spend their days how they wish. We want to make sure that they have plenty of options to choose from when it comes to ways to fill up their time. Whether that's taking part in a group activity (such as games or arts and crafts sessions) or pursuing a personal hobby or interest – if a resident doesn't have one when they come into the home then we're more than happy to suggest some for them.

We also organise regular days out which are hugely popular during the summer months as we try to get down to the seaside as much as possible as well as to garden centres and other attractions.

Can I bring my own furniture?

Depending on its size, new residents are welcome to bring furniture to their new room. Many of our residents bring a favourite armchair or pictures and other small belongings to personalise their room.

How soon can I move in?

This depends on availability of rooms in the home, understanding the cost of care and the person moving in receiving a care assessment.
