Highfield House

near Purley in Croydon

Highfield House is a 45-bed specialist nursing home for the care of adults living with complex neurological conditions.

Highfield House was opened in 2011 with 27 beds available to patients requiring long-term specialist neurological care; in 2017 an additional 18 beds were added, allowing Highfield House to offer expanded state of the art facilities to patients and their families.

At Highfield we offer the highest standards of care to patients affected by neurological conditions and requiring specialised treatment and therapies to enable them to make their life as fulfilling as possible. Wherever possible we seek input from patients’ families and friends to help us identify the things they enjoy doing, and incorporate them as far as possible into the recreational activities we employ as part of their individual care plan.

We also provide short-term rehabilitation services to enable patients to achieve maximum independence prior to discharge into the community through a multi-disciplinary approach co-ordinated by our Consultant in Rehabilitation Medicine.
