Welcome to St Christopher's Care Home in Hatfield

Our residents enjoy the warm, friendly atmosphere in our purpose-built home, pleasantly located in a residential area of Hatfield. St Christopher's has recently been enlarged and extensively refurbished.

The home comprises five houses offering specialist care for its residents. Scott House, Marsden House, Bonnington House and Francis House each provide  nursing care for the elderly. Johnson House provides specialist dementia care.

Residents and their loved ones have the reassurance of round the clock care from our dedicated team. There are comfortable lounges where residents can chat and entertain guests, a traditional dining room and social areas – plus wonderful views of the surrounding gardens.

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.
