Linden House

Welcome to Linden House

Located near to the rolling chalk downs of Epsom, Linden House, is an impressive Victorian House that has been carefully converted to a first-class 32 bed care home. We’re proud of the warm and welcoming atmosphere that greets every visitor to our home.

The care home offers single rooms, all with private washing and toilet facilities. In addition, there are spacious communal areas consisting of three large lounge/sitting rooms and two dining rooms. These facilities give the image and feel of a luxurious hotel but with the added benefit of full 24 hour care.

Quality assured

All of our care homes are regularly inspected by the Care Quality Commission, to ensure that the high standards we strive to achieve are maintained at all times. In addition to this we have our own Governance Manager who supports the team in complying with all regulatory practices.


“Not only is there a genuinely friendly and calm atmosphere, we always find the staff to be cheerful and compassionate. The beautiful rose garden is particularly therapeutic I think.”

“The Manager and her staff provide a wonderfully loving and caring environment for my mother – who is always treated with dignity and respect. The care provided is first-class.”

“My mother is a resident of this care home,and she is extremely happy with the attentiveness and compassion from all the staff. I as was my mother so thrilled to be part of a special event the manager had put on for all the residents., I was looking for nearly 6 months for a residential care home for my grandmother, and saw Linden House on I arranged a viewing and was welcomed so warmly. The home is really welcoming and the staff very pleasant. My grandmother has since moved in and is so happy. I would recommend Linden if you are looking for a lovely home.”

“My husband spent one week receiving respite care at Linden House as he suffers from the first stages of dementia. The care home was very caring, kind and considerate to him also to myself. My husband is 96 years old and I am 90, he said the food was excellent and very well presented. There was a menu everyday and anything he fancied was found. I felt that he was well cared for under the circumstances of his difficult condition.”

“We wanted a one week respite care place for my 96 year old father who is very frail and has dementia. This was so that Mum (90 years old) could attend a family wedding in Norfolk and enjoy a well deserved rest from her 24 hr caring role to Dad. The Manager and Operations Manager were superb. The Operations manager visited Mum and Dad in their home and carried out a thorough assessment of Dad’s needs. Working with the family she devised a Care Plan which mirrored Dad’s existing routine at home. The transition into the home was emotional but the Operations Manager and her staff listened, supported and reassured us. We knew that he was in very safe hands. Dad ate, slept and relaxed into the Linden House routine. He enjoyed the food and the banter with the staff. We brought him home safely and he is now enjoying home comforts again. Respite care is a great way of easing the burden of care on loved ones. It enabled Mum to recharge her batteries and to experience her Grandson’s special wedding day. A big thank you to Linden House and all the staff but particularly the Operations Manager, for taking care of our precious Dad so well.”

“My father had a 9 day ‘holiday’ at Linden House while 2 out of 3 of us daughters were away on our summer holidays. He thoroughly enjoyed himself and was wonderfully well looked after – he has Alzheimers and the staff had even put up notices to help him find his way to his room. It was the first time we had used respite care for Dad and we were obviously apprehensive but everything went so well we would definitely repeat the experience. The staff were extremely helpful and supportive to our family too.”
