Trusted to care in Ashford
Echelforde is a welcoming, purpose-built care home close to the centre of Ashford. We provide high quality residential, respite, day and dementia care for up to 50 people. We put residents first – always – and treat them like members of our own family.
At Echelforde, we believe in supporting residents to be as independent as possible. Your loved one is welcome to do meaningful tasks around our Surrey care home if it helps to give them a sense of purpose. We plan a range of social distanced activities and outings each week too, from quizzes and games, to music and regular entertainment. We also have strong links with the local community.
Each bedroom is large and comfortable, with stylish furniture and a 24-hour nurse call system. Your loved one can bring their own personal possessions and items of furniture to make their room more personal to them. Echelforde also has lovely shared spaces, including an activity room, a hair salon, a shop and a bar.
We work hard to make Echelforde a true home from home for your loved one. At residents’ request, we’ve added a pub, we run outings to wherever people would like to go. Your loved one is welcome to help with any daily tasks they wish, and take part in as many activities as they like.
At Echelforde, we provide a wide range of care services. We always perform an assessment of every prospective new resident before they join us, so we know we can give them the care they need.Read more

I believe that, as a home manager, you’re as good as your team. That’s why I always make sure I’m giving colleagues the support they need to do their jobs well. I love walking around the home checking in with them and the residents. It’s wonderful when residents take the time to sit and chat to me and share what they’ve been doing that day.Japal SinghHome Manager
