UK Care Home History
Our UK care home, Richmondwood has had an interesting history. The land was originally owned by the Earl of Malmesbury who sold it to a private purchaser in 1905 for the sum of £375.
It was later sold to the Church Commissioners and in 1936 became the vicarage to the nearby parish church of St Albans. It remained as such until 1978 when it changed ownership and soon after was converted to a UK Care Home.
It is a tribute to the sympathetic way the additions have been designed that most visitors coming up the front drive are unaware that it is only the middle part of the UK care home – the bay window and the window to the left – that is part of the original structure.
The vicarage had four bedrooms, but by the time the current owner purchased it in 1986 this had increased to 11 bedrooms. Since that date our UK care home has had several extensions and now has 22 bedrooms, 19 of which have en-suite toilet or full bathing facilities.
In the 1990’s a further parcel of land was purchased at the rear to be used as amenity space.
Outside, the gardens front and rear have been extensively landscaped and designed so that all parts are level and easily accessed by those in wheelchairs or who have mobility difficulties.

Although times and regulations have changed, our aim is still the same as it always was, to encourage independent living for our residents within a caring and happy atmosphere. However, is not a nursing home and therefore we cannot provide nursing care although we provide palliative care if needed. We can call on the primary health care team from your local GP surgery to carry out any procedures requiring a trained nurse, as you would if you lived at home.
