After two years at home with 24 hour care, the time had come for my mother to receive care home care. My cousin and I had visited many homes in the area and decided on Upton House, Worth, Deal. My mother was welcomed by all the friendly staff and settled in. Her mobility was encouraged and immediately improved. I am very impressed with the appetising menu delivered daily and the activities that are organised regularly for all the residents. My mother has been in Upton House now for 9 months and seems very settled, happy and content, which was always my goal.

My father has resided at Upton House for the last year, the house and care is second to none. The standards, residents, facilities are superb. I have no faults with Upton House I would certainly recommend.

Deborah C, Daughter of Resident, 2017

This is not the first home my mother tried but it will certainly be the last. The place is delightful, the staff brilliant and the food good. I've got my name down already.

Staff are superb at managing care providing mental and physical stimulation and exercise. The home puts on continual engagement and entertainment. Residents are all happy and kept in excellent condition and presentation is immaculate. All residents are addressed by name and adapted to depending on their individual needs.

This is the most amazing home I have ever been in. It's immaculate, food superb, the staff excellent, the environment is a family based home and second to none. I've looked at lots of homes in the Deal area and this is the best you can get.

Lyn H, Daughter of Resident, 2017

Upton House really does feel like a family home. It is well run, cosy, comfortable and friendly. The spontaneous show of affection I have seen from residents to staff speaks for itself. Well done!

Dear Pat and Peter, thank you for making the last chapter of Lizzie's life so beautiful. Jackie and staff you were Lizzie's daughters and my sisters during these last few years. Words cannot say how much you all mean to me. Overall impressions of the home: A wonderful oasis with kindness and love.

Linda Smith, 2010

Delightful Georgian house set in truly rural Kentish countryside. Owned and managed and operated by same family for over 26 years in true British tradition. Testament in itself where caring really is the watch word. No effort spared to ensure residents' contentment. Exceptional staff trained (EMI) to a high degree but receiving continuous further training. Limited resident numbers makes one to one care possible. Superb food, mostly locally sourced, leaves nothing to be desired. Pleasant surroundings and secure gardens.

Victor P, husband of resident, 2012

Upton House is an intimate and comfortable care home set in attractive grounds and comprising a period building in good decorative order. The home displays little obvious signs of being an institution which helps residents to make the transition to a total care environment from home. The staff and management are caring and attentive and meals are good.

Nigel Newton, son of former resident, 2012

Upton House is a care home specialising in dementia care. It is a beautiful old house in a peaceful setting, very well converted with lovely, large bright rooms and a secluded garden for its residents. It is always well maintained and clean.

The staff are always bright and cheerful no matter what life throws at them during their working hours. I was promised that they would care for my father until the very end. A promise that they kept and I cannot express my gratitude to them enough, because that is what they did. The entire staff is kind and caring and they love all their residents. If I were asked to recommend a care home to anyone, this would be the place. There is not enough room here to express my true feelings.

Upton House is a specialist Alzheimer's home. The residents, no matter what the problems are, are always treated with kindness and patience.

Jean Darbyshire, daughter-in-law of resident

Clean, efficient, compassionate, with good lines of communication and dedicated staff. Upton House stands head and shoulders above the other care homes I looked at before making my decision, and I haven't regretted it.

PP, son of resident, 2012

I moved my mother, Mrs T E L to Upton House from another local home and it was the best thing I ever did. It is a period house with well-kept gardens. The staff headed by Jacqui J, The General Manager, are friendly and very caring. They communicate immediately if a problem arises. I thoroughly recommend it. My mother has been a resident for 4+ years.

Diana B, daughter of resident, 2012

My father has vascular dementia and could no longer be cared for at home. When visiting care homes prior to selection, we were astounded by not only calmness in general of this specialist E.M.I home but also the in-house relationships between residents and staff. My father has gained a much needed half stone in weight. He is doing very well all thanks to Upton House.

Christina C, daughter of resident, 2012

Our mum weighed about six stone when leaving hospital. After moving to Upton House with all the care from the staff she has gained weight. Always dressed well. The love and care she receives is wonderful and she recognises staff with a smile. So pleased with our decision to put mum in Upton House.

Michael & Stephen R, sons of resident, 2012
