Types of care

The Peony Court care team provide individualised, person-centred care for older people who require residential care. Each individual is assessed prior to admission to ensure the team have the skills and knowledge to meet specific care needs. Residents and families' comments or suggestions are encouraged during the development of proposed care plans and at regular reviews. This enables the team to plan and implement our services based on the individual requirements of each resident, and maintaining a high level of independence is always something that we strive towards.

Our Team

Sandra Roche

General Manager

Hello! My name is Sandra Roche and I'm the general manager here at Peony Court. Welcome to our website!

I am a social worker by profession and passionate about upholding the rights of older people. I have 30 years of experience in social care across a wide variety of settings. I first became a registered manager in 2001 and led a demolition and rebuild project for a not-for-profit provider whilst achieving the top rating of Excellent at that time. I returned to statutory social work leadership in 2010 and progressed up the ranks to Acting Assistant Director of Adult Social Care responsible for all adults in the borough and a budget of over £40 million.  After nearly 2 years in that role I realized I was losing contact with older people and their families, the reason why I came into social care in the first place and made the decision to return to the front line, just in time for the Pandemic. Thankfully the memories of the past three years are waning and it is good to be nearly back to normal, enjoying trips out and welcoming visitors without restriction.

Since joining Barchester to open Peony Court I have relished making a daily difference in the lives of our residents and their families and building a high-performing team from the get-go. We were thrilled to win a Top 20 Care homes in London Award before our 1st Birthday. Our ambition here at Peony Court is to be Outstanding and we do this by placing our residents at the heart of everything we do, and by empowering them to lead their own lives, individually and as a community. We are a small home which makes for a genuine family atmosphere; I know all my residents, their children, grandchildren, nephews, nieces, neighbours, friends and family pets, as do all the team. We care for our families as much as our residents and value them as partners in care.

Whether you are looking for respite care or a more permanent home from home for your loved one you are assured of the warmest of welcomes, a luxury city boutique hotel environment and bespoke, personalised, loving care from the highly motivated and friendly team at Peony Court.
