Wykeham House Care Home was built in 1995 and was officially opened by Sir Richard Branson in 1998. It is ideally located, being less than 5 minutes from Gatwick Airport, making this the ideal location for residents with families living abroad, with an excellent train link from the airport.  

Approximately two miles from the M23 Junction 9 towards Brighton and just off the A23 Redhill to Gatwick Road, the home is situated within walking distance to the town centre, bus stop and train station.

We provide excellent 24-hour nursing and residential care, alongside expert care for people with dementia, with our Memory Lane Community. We also provide respite care and short breaks.

We offer our residents a stimulating and satisfying lifestyle where they can choose how to enjoy every day at their own pace. Our team encourages activities and interests and we focus not only on the individual care needs but also on general well-being.

Our dedication can be seen throughout the home - our home cooked fresh food, hospitality and activities. Families are welcome to join us for lunch. We can also offer a private dining service for those special occasions so important to you and your family.

Wykeham House is situated within walking distance of the town centre on level ground. The bus stop and train station are also very close by. Enjoy the open-air cafés and shops of Horley, which are all very easily accessible and wheelchair friendly.

We think you'll find we're ideally suited to meet your needs both now and in the future ensuring you get the most from your golden years.

Call in for a coffee, you'll be very welcome. We are here to support the family and we can discuss your loved ones future.

Shirley Emilio

General Manager

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

I began my career in care when I decided to do my training and qualified as nurse in Yorkshire in 1985; I lived and worked abroad before returning to the UK a few years ago.

I am passionate about meeting people who care and who genuinely want to make a difference in the care sector. My aim is to inspire and lead a team who have a great energy and attitude. The main focus will always be those we support, who are at the heart of all we do.

I look forward to welcoming you to Wykeham House!
