ABOUT IFIELD PARK
Founded in 1954, Ifield Park Care Home is a community led, not-for-profit Care Home specialising in Residential Care, Residential Dementia Care, Nursing Care and Day Care.
We provide modern, high quality accommodation and over the years we have expanded and adapted to the changing needs of older people.
For us, care is more than a service, it's a way of life. Our purpose built residential accommodations are designed to give our residents a comfortable, cosy and familiar place to live, while providing them with the safe environment, support and care that they need.

Founded in 1954 by Harold and Millicent Goodwin, Ifield park was originally founded as a voluntary, charitable, residential care home. Although not a Quaker home, Harold and Millicent were encouraged by members of the local Quaker Society of Friends along with their family to provide much needed housing and care for 'elderly people of limited means'. Entry was to be regardless of race, creed, status or geography; the only criteria for entry was 'need', and this remains the spirit of the home to this day.
Nowadays, Ifield Park offer not only residential care, but nursing and dementia care and a Day Centre too. Just like Harold and Millicent, our current management and trustees are focused on providing the highest levels of care, and are dedicated to taking the very best care of our residents; making them as comfortable as possible.
A Management Committee of Trustees is elected at the Annual General Meeting, and consists of dedicated local people, all of whom are keenly interested in the welfare of the elderly and the affairs of the home.
The management team at Ifield Park consists of highly trained, qualified and above all friendly and empathetic people, who have been chosen not only for their outstanding qualifications, but also for the care and consideration they show for the people in our care.
"People will forget what you said, and people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel"
We recognise that every person who chooses to live at Ifield Park has a right to be treated as an individual, be shown respect and consideration at all times and have their dignity considered and respected. Every person is unique and makes a valued contribution to the home community in which they live - no matter how small - and their opinion, together with their right to choose, is of the utmost importance.
Each resident has a person centred care plan and ‘Remember I'm me’ chart, which details their life history, medical, social, spiritual/cultural and care needs. By inviting the collaboration of each resident, along with their family and friends, we seek to ensure that the care we give is professional, caring, thoughtful and dignified.
At Ifield Park we work together to improve our services and encourage teamwork. We take the time to understand each other's roles and needs. If we feel there is a problem, together, we will do something to help solve it. We strive to empower and support each other in order to make the best decisions for our residents and our team.
