New home now open!

Ideally located in the centre of historic and thriving Tonbridge, Porthaven’s new care home sits conveniently on Quarry Hill Road. As well as providing excellent care for the residents of Tonbridge, Tonbridge House Care Home is expected to become a very popular home for many residents of surrounding villages and towns such as Hadlow, Hildenborough and Paddock Wood.

Newly opened, Tonbridge House provides 24 hour residential, nursing, dementia and respite care for the elderly in an elegant and spacious home incorporating numerous thoughtful and practical features which ensure our home is able to meet the changing needs of its residents.

Porthaven’s expertly trained and professional staff are dedicated to the care, comfort and dignity of all our residents, with special emphasis given to promoting independence, privacy, respect and wellbeing.

All residents benefit from living in a caring environment with generously appointed private bedrooms with en suite wetrooms, and plentiful communal living areas including sitting rooms, restaurants, café, hairdressing salon and nail bar, leisure and wellness room and private dining room for special family occasions.

In keeping with our unique and award winning leisure and wellness philosophy, our residents also benefit from our private and secure landscaped garden for peaceful relaxation, gardening and if the weather permits, gentle exercising.

Our new home is now open and we would be delighted to meet you, show you around and discuss whether we are able to assist you or your loved one.

To arrange a visit please call our Home Manager, Karen Pain, our Client Services Manager, Michael Marley, or if you prefer, simply send us a message.
