St. Teresa’s Home
St Teresa’s Home is really special – I feel very at home here. Everyone looks after me so well! I never would have imagined that a place could feel so calm and so restful, so close to the centre of London.
An oasis of peace in the heart of West London, St Teresa’s is home to 26 elderly people, many of whom are living with dementia.
Thanks to our kind supporters and our dedicated staff, residents of St Teresa’s receive a superb level of individual attention. We encourage each and every resident to remain active and independent in their daily lives, and we go to great lengths to enable them to live as fully as possible.
St Teresa’s is situated on a quiet residential street in South Kensington, within easy reach of transport services as well as the many shops, cafes, parks and museums that give the area its unique character.
The home itself
St Teresa’s is spread over four adjoining properties – four elegant London residences that have been connected together to form a single home with 25 large en-suite rooms.
The entire facility is maintained to an excellent standard, and was refurbished in 2007/8 so it combines a historic feel with up-to-date features. We carry out regular assessments to ensure everything meets or exceeds the needs of residents, the expectations of families, and the requirements of regulatory bodies.
At St Teresa’s we encourage every resident to bring their own belongings with them, so each room really feels like home. Residents have plenty of opportunity to socialise, gathering together in the comfortable communal lounge, the bright conservatory, the well furnished dining room and the sunny patio. When the weather is less favourable, an awning and garden heaters are on offer, so people can still enjoy the outdoors. For those seeking spiritual enrichment, St Teresa’s also has its own chapel.
We actively encourage visits from friends and family – everyone who comes through our doors receives a warm welcome from Carers, Sisters and residents alike!
