At Thackeray House Care Home, we provide 24-hour nursing care for older people as well as offering the opportunity for short-term respite stays, perhaps for convalescence after an operation or to give a family member a break from caring for a loved one.

Our nursing home is a small, purpose-built residential care home in Croydon, set in compact but beautifully maintained gardens, with excellent transport links to London and surrounding areas via train, bus and tram. There is a pleasant conservatory overlooking the rear garden and the home is a short walk from Croydon centre.

Personal profiles drawn up with the person concerned and relatives, provide the basis for individualised elderly care, treatment and support. They ensure that Thackeray House tailors activities, diet and medical care to particular needs.

Thackeray House welcomes visitors – we like people to drop into see what we can provide.

Types of care

The Thackeray House nursing and care team provide individualised, person-centred care for older people who are unable to remain at home or who require experienced end of life support. 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. In our latest CQC inspection, 'Care' was rated as ‘Good,’ and for the past two years, we have won a placing in the ‘Top Twenty London Homes’ on

General Manager

Hi, my name is Yvonne, and I am the General Manager here at Thackeray House. Welcome to our website!

I have been a Registered Manager for over 10 years, working predominantly with older people in both nursing and residential care.

Working in this industry is very rewarding, as it allows me the opportunity to meet a generation that l otherwise wouldn’t have met, and the privilege to hear their life stories.

I also share my story of being a wife and mother of three gorgeous boys and often have anecdotes of being the only female in a house full of boys!

I enjoy what l do and I like for the people l work with to look forward to coming to work, and for the residents to receive high quality care from people that are passionate about what they do.
