Newington Court Care Home in Sittingbourne

Our home is situated in the village of Newington in the beautiful Kent countryside, on the outskirts of Sittingbourne. The home provides 24-hour nursing care and personal support to frail older people, people with illnesses and disabilities and people living with dementia.

Dementia Care

We provide specialist support for individuals living with dementia in our bespoke Memory Lane Community, where care is focused on independence, dignity and choice, with a person centred approach. We have also invested in a 'Magic Table' for our home, an interactive light projector designed to support people living with dementia through mentally and physically stimulating games.

We also have an exclusive 8 bed dementia care facility called Falcon Place, which is situated next to the care home.

Support at Newington Court is based on careful assessment, building up a picture of people’s lives that can contribute to regularly reviewed personalised care plans. In turn, these help determine clinical approaches, risk assessment, finding the diet that suits the individuals likes and dislikes and activities picked on the same basis.

Activities at Newington Court include exercise, quizzes, singing and reminiscence. It also includes one-to-one work (sometimes based around manicure, for example, which allows time to talk), trips out with relatives and outings for groups or individuals.

We welcome visitors or callers so please feel free to contact us.

Phillis Dzowa

General Manager

Hi, my name is Phillis, and I am the General Manager here at Newington Court. Welcome to our website.

I trained and worked as a Registered Nurse in Zimbabwe for 4 years. I then joined Newington Court in January 2017. I love my work here and I always ensure that delivering a high standard of care is my priority. Through dedication and determination, I have earned the role as Lead Nurse on the top floor.

My aim is to ensure expected outcomes are met in the best possible way and improvements are made in the best interests of the people we support. I took up my new role as General Manager in April 2021.
