Peartree is a beautiful, purpose-built care home close to Sydenham town centre in South East London. 

Warm and friendly, we are extremely proud of our excellent reputation for offering exceptional standards of respite care and long-term residential care, residential dementia care, frail nursing care and end of life care.

Our spacious, modern home is tastefully decorated and well known for its open and welcoming environment where residents and team members, many of whom live locally in areas such as Lewisham, Catford and Forest Hill, Bromley and Dulwich, thoroughly enjoy celebrating our close links with the local community.

We believe in the importance of treating every single person as an individual and thoughtfully tailor our care and support to their specific health, social and wellbeing needs. Our dedication has been recognised in our Beacon status accreditation with the Gold Standards Framework – awarded for providing exceptional quality care to people nearing the end of their lives.

Our attractive, safe and calm setting provides a cheerful, relaxed home where people live happily and comfortably with a high quality of life.

“I want to express my sincere thanks for the great care at Peartree. It was Valentine’s Day when we called and all the residents were engaged in a lively sing-song. Aunty seems very happy and settled in your care. My thanks to you all for doing a wonderful job.”

Relative of Resident

“We would like to thank you all for making Sally’s last few years happy ones. We have so many good memories of mum on special occasions, like the sing-along shows, barbecues and Bonfire Night.”

Quality care in a homely environment

Peartree-Excelcare-London-20059.jpgHere at Peartree, we offer expert care in home-from-home surroundings. 

We have fantastic facilities, a beautiful garden and lots of social activities to choose from – ensuring residents’ days are filled doing the things they love, with caring and compassionate team member’s on-hand to provide high-quality care support when needed. 

With the residents’ needs at the heart of everything we do, we get to know them personally, ensuring we understand not only their care needs but also their social and wellbeing needs too. 

This enables us to provide truly person-centred care and support – giving you peace of mind that your loved one will be settled, happy, comfortable and relaxed here. 

As a family-run home, we believe that it’s the little touches that make all the difference. Whether it’s encouraging residents to personalise their rooms and bring their own furniture if they wish, so that their surroundings are familiar and homely, or knowing how someone prefers their tea, we are committed to making sure every detail is taken care of.

We also understand the importance of the residents continuing to play an active part in their local community. To support this, we regularly welcome groups to spend time with us, as well as organise special events, trips and visits out to local attractions. 

As we are focused on providing the very best care, we keep up-to-date with the latest innovations in care giving to support our residents’ wellbeing. For example, our in-house chartered physiotherapist leads the progressive Otago exercise programme, a strength and balance retraining system specifically designed to aid physical wellbeing in older people.

Our team is also dedicated to maintaining and increasing their knowledge and skills through a variety of training classes. Here at Peartree, we particularly excel at caring for people nearing the end of their life, which has been recognised through our Beacon Status accreditation, the highest possible award given by the Gold Standards Framework

A tranquil setting close to the town centre

Peartree-Excelcare-London-20215.jpgPeartree has a relaxed environment to bring every resident peace of mind and comfort. 

Our tranquil grounds are beautifully maintained and offer a year-round haven where residents can sit on the patio and listen to the calming sounds of the water fountain or, for those with green fingers, take an active part in caring for plants, flowers and vegetables.

We have also seen the many benefits of our research-backed, holistic Namaste programme which uses techniques based on touch and comfort, music and aromatherapy to help enhance our residents’ quality of life. We find the sensory stimulation refreshes and relaxes residents and is particularly beneficial to those living with advanced dementia.

At Peartree, we have plenty of quiet spaces for residents to relax in. This includes our delightful tea room, which serves delicious home-baked cakes, fresh sandwiches and pastries and is the perfect place to spend time with visitors. Alternatively, for those people who prefer a livelier pace of life, there are plenty of opportunities to socialise. 

Each of our four floors has a large dining room which is filled with laughter and chatting during mealtimes where residents can choose from a varied menu, lovingly prepared by our catering team. The fresh, nutritious meals and snacks include resident favourites along with options for people with special dietary needs and cultural preferences. 

There is also a spacious lounge on every floor, equipped with a flat-screen television and music system for shared time together.

Warm and friendly, with community at its heart

Peartree-Excelcare-London-20128.jpgWe appreciate that while some people like a relaxed, peaceful life, others enjoy company, companionship and fun, so we have a varied calendar of activities and events. We support residents to continue with existing hobbies and interests, as well as having the opportunity to try new things too. 

Sydenham is a diverse and multi-cultural neighbourhood and therefore we maintain close links with the local community to keep inclusivity at the heart of everything we do. 

We host frequent parties and gatherings to bring residents and their families together, celebrating everything from St Patrick’s Day and Black History Month to Christmas and Pancake Day – as well as each and every resident’s birthday – complete with a special home-baked cake. 

Day-to-day activities include singing, creative arts and crafts sessions, quieter book and knitting clubs, lively quizzes, relaxing gardening and fun and energetic visiting entertainers. 

As physical wellbeing is a top priority, we have a fully equipped gymnasium for residents to use freely, as well as a sensory room specially designed to promote relaxation and calmness through massage and other sensory techniques. Our hairdressing salon is always popular for those looking for a spot of pampering.

Peartree is a very warm and friendly home-from-home where quality care, close bonds and friendships go hand-in-hand.
