The Manor’s illustrious history can be traced back to 1816, but it was only between the world wars that that the Estate came to prominence. It was at this time that the Royal family, including the then Princess Elizabeth, would come to stay at Greathed, joining for tennis parties and picnics.
The Home also has a long pedigree in nursing and tending to the frail. During war time it served as a Hospital for service men, and after 1958, it was converted to provide 22 retirement apartments for the elderly.
In 2008, the Home was adapted to provide luxurious accommodation for elderly nursing clients. Many of the bedrooms are mini-suites, and provide unrivalled views of the countryside. All rooms are decorated to a high standard and have their own showers, freeview televisions and private phones. There is a choice of three lounges and a dining room, as well as many other facilities such as hairdressing salon.
Greathed Manor employs a highly qualified, experienced and dedicated team of staff who work closely with residents to ensure a continuously high standard of person-centred care. The focus is on individual needs with an emphasis on choice. Each resident will have a named nurse. Additionally, residents have access to visiting physiotherapists, chiropodists and yoga practitioners.
