Sutton Valence Care Home in Maidstone

Set in the picturesque Kent countryside, surrounded by parks and greenery, Sutton Valence is a bright and spacious residence five miles from Maidstone town centre. All of our bedrooms are suitable for those requiring residential care and nursing care. We also offer respite care for those who require shorter stays.

When you arrive at Sutton Valence, we’ll sit down together to understand you, your life story and your needs. This includes any objectives you have, or specific health concerns. We’ll then create a personal care plan together with you, your relatives and our carers. If your care needs change while you’re with us, there is no need for you to relocate to a different room.

As well as our team of carers and nurses, GPs and other healthcare professionals visit the home regularly and are on call to provide services, should they be needed at any time. And everyone gets stuck in together – whether to serve breakfast or perform at our music nights. The best thing about working at Sutton Valence is being part of a caring community and feeling part of an extended family.

At Sutton Valence, we love our food. We firmly believe that when you eat well, you live well too. This is a core part of our philosophy of care, centring on good nutrition and the importance of mealtimes as a social occasion.

Our Team

The dedicated and experienced team are passionate about providing quality care to each individual living at the home.

Robert Dura-May

Senior General Manager

Hi, my name is Robert, and I am the Senior General Manager here at Sutton Valence. Welcome to our website!

I joined Barchester HealthCare, as I  was looking to use my life skills to enhance both the life of residents and team members,  I liked the values and description of Sutton Valance and Barchester as a care provider.

I really enjoy the daily challenges, team recruitment and always pushing and exceeding performance where I can.  I also enjoy adding value, enhancing care and giving elder life purpose to enable them to engage in a fulfilled life.

I am passionate about delivering the levels and standards of care that I would expect for my own parents who are sadly no longer with us. If I had known about Barchester when my own parents required care, my family would have not experienced such pain and anxiety, this is why I chose Barchester to ensure that other families do not, where possible, have to endure what I had experienced in the past.

I have over 20 years’ experience in the NHS, Private and Public business and have worked in the care sector with children, young adults, adults with acquired brain injury and last 10 years in elderly care.

I have recently studied open university course to ensure decisions made at the home reflected best practice providing a safe community.

Making a difference to people's lives throughout my career has been my biggest achievement. I strive to continually develop to ensure that the individuals I care for, experience the very best care and life enrichment in later life.

Every day is an achievement delivering and pushing the levels of care to exceed the expectations of Barchester and myself.
