Kestrel Grove is situated in Bushey Heath, a small Hertfordshire village 12 miles from central London with views over countryside and set in five acres of its own beautiful landscaped gardens. The principle mansion was formally headquarters of Fighter Command at Stanmore and has an impressive reception hall with ornate balustrades and a domed skylight. The home has been extended over the years with two modern wings designed in sympathy with the old architecture.
Kestrel Grove was founded in 1966 and has been operated by the same family since opening. The emphasis is to provide high levels of care in a relaxed atmosphere where every possible need is catered for. Our excellent standards of Nursing and Personal Care promote a sense of well being with conscientious attention for each individual in a superb setting.
24 Hours Nursing Care is provided under the personal supervision of the Matron. There is a dedicated team of Registered General Nurses and Health Care Assistants to provide very high standards of care and comfort for our elderly and convalescent residents. Kestrel Grove is registered to provide care for 57 Residents with 32 Nursing and 25 Residential rooms.
