About Us

Experts in Respite Care and Nursing Care

Rusthall Lodge is a welcoming and comfortable purpose-built care home run with a charitable ethos. The Home is located in lovely grounds in the picturesque village of Rusthall, close to Tunbridge Wells in Kent. With accommodation for 69 adults, Rusthall Lodge offers long term nursing and residential care with respite accommodation in a warm, relaxed, caring and respectful environment where family and friends are always very welcome to visit.

We aim to ensure that our residents receive the best care and are made to feel at home and secure from the moment they come into the Home.

Everything we do; every decision we make and take has the interests of our residents at its heart. Rusthall Lodge is our place of work but it remains our resident's Home.

Our Heritage

Rusthall Lodge began life as the former home of Miss Margaret Fremlin; a rather grand Victorian/Edwardian house that sat in beautiful grounds. In the mid-60s, the Council of Service Housing Society based in Monson Road in Tunbridge Wells had seen a need to “provide for local people of limited means and in need of care and attention”.

As a result of Miss Fremlin’s generosity and the dedication and hard work and kindness of a number of other local benefactors and supporters, Rusthall Lodge opened on 1st January 1968.

Our Values

The core values at the heart of everything we do are:

  • Quality of care
  • Pride in our service
  • Dignity, privacy and confidentiality always
  • See people as individuals with individual needs

We pride ourselves on the high standard of care enjoyed by our residents which is provided by our fully trained, professional and friendly team of staff, twenty-four hours a day.

Our Charitable Ethos

Rusthall Lodge is a Registered Society under the Co-operative and Community Benefit Societies Act 2014 - 17413R. As a charitable organisation, the majority of surplus funds from the Lodge are re-invested for the benefit of our residents and to ensure staff members have the equipment, training and resources they need to provide the best possible service.

This reinvestment of funds into the fabric and daily life at Rusthall Lodge helps us to provide a comfortable, welcoming and safe home for our residents and a pleasant place for families and friends to visit and for our staff to work in.
