Deer Park Care Home is located in the historic market town of Ledbury, on the borders of Herefordshire, Gloucestershire and Worcestershire, famous for its beginnings as a bishop’s manor and as the birthplace of Poet Laureate, John Masefield. The home is within easy driving reach of attractions such as the Malvern Hills and The Wye Valley, both Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

Deer Park Care Home offers 24 hour residential, nursing, dementia and respite care within elegant and spacious surroundings. The home is purpose-built, incorporating many thoughtful and practical features that ensure the comfort and safety of our residents at all times, supporting, not only their differing care requirements, but their social, emotional and physical wellbeing too.

There is a well-developed and award-winning philosophy of leisure and wellness, with a team of co-ordinators planning a diverse and inclusive programme of activities for the residents, ensuring to appeal to every interest, capability and need. This may include outings, visiting speakers, musical events and exercise sessions for various abilities.

There are two acres of secure and beautiful gardens at Deer Park Care Home for relaxation, exercise, afternoon tea in good weather and even gardening.
