Friston House Care Home in Rochester

Friston House is a modern, purpose-built care home, located near the historic city of Rochester. The home has lovely courtyard gardens and good access to public transport.

It is split into three units and offers services to people who require nursing and personal care, people living with working age dementia and people living with dementia, who are supported in dedicated Memory Lane communities.

There is 24-hour nursing cover and links with local NHS services are extremely good. Care at Friston House is based on careful assessment and care planning, linked to activities on a group and one-to-one basis, which include regular parties, entertainments and outings. Community links are good and a number of volunteers visit the home to help out.

We’re always grateful to get such appreciative comment but the best way to get to know Friston House is to visit us or to give us a call.
