Our Testimonials

“When I was faced with having to find a home for my aunt, I visited many establishments around Folkestone. Most were lovely but it wasn’t until I stepped into Pelham that I felt ‘at home’.  I was greeted by smiles, I could hear laughter from the conservatory, and I sat and enjoyed the garden while tea and biscuits were brought to me – to me that was home.  The staff are always happy to see me or chat when I ring my aunt. You never feel in the way even though they are all busy making Pelham run smoothly.
“Pelham House really is as close to a ‘family home’ as can be achieved in the care system.”

Lynne Royle

“Pelham House is a wonderful environment for the elderly – it is always spotlessly clean and there’s never an unpleasant odour. The staff are very friendly and approachable and delicious meals are home-cooked fresh every day. If my Mother has needed a doctor or paramedic. then they call them immediately and keep me informed. Roger Waluube has ensured the gardens are well kept, and residents enjoy morning coffee or afternoon tea outside in the warmer weather.

“I cannot speak highly enough of Pelham House Care Home overall, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the service to my friends for their loved ones.

Margaret Tappenden

“My mother was devastated at losing her own home, but Pelham House Care Home is so homely, warm and welcoming that she felt settled in no time, and I feel that she is looked after in a dignified manner in a clean, caring environment. Her room is bright and airy, the staff are very friendly and kind, and the food is excellent. I can relax knowing that Mum is safe and secure in the best home of its kind in Folkestone.”

“I have a friend from Belgium who visited Pelham House with me a couple of times. His mother-in-law is in a home in Dover and it is atrocious! It makes Pelham House look like Buckingham Palace. He would like his mother-in-law to move here…

“I don’t often come to Friends & Family Meetings as I can go directly to the Manager who is always accessible and approachable.

“You are doing an excellent job with my mother, so I will do all I can to support you.”

Serge, resident’s son
