Winchester House Care Home in Medway

Winchester House is a perfect home from home, located in the beautiful countryside of Tonbridge and Malling, close to the historic city of Rochester and the Medway Towns. Formerly a rectory constructed in 1875, Winchester House has been tastefully restored to provide elegant surroundings across 5 separate units.  We provide 24-hour nursing care alongside specialist care for people with dementia in our two dedicated Memory Lane Communities. These communities are designed to be dementia friendly and promote well-being for individuals as well as providing stimulating activity areas.

We're proud of our socially active community which revolves around superb facilities alongside first-rate care. We employ two activities coordinators and have a wide range of activities that include singing sessions, cake making, film sessions, games, quizzes and regular outings for all of our residents. 

We would be delighted to show you around so that you can see what we have to offer for yourself – please feel free to drop in or to call us if you would like advice.

Sue Simmonds

General Manager

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

I have worked here since January 2010 and have been working as a General Manager for Barchester since March 2009. I qualified as a General Nurse at Kent and Canterbury Health Authority in 1985 and went on to specialise in the care of older people.

I have a BSc (hons) in Nursing Studies and a Certificate in Education (Post Compulsory). I have worked in a variety of health and social care settings throughout my career, including rehabilitation, long term care, regulation, education and dementia care.

I am committed to delivering the very highest standard of care to residents within the home, offering them an opportunity to enjoy their lives to the best of their ability. I enjoy leading my team in a way in which they are empowered to use their skills, knowledge and experience for the well-being of those we support.
