About Us

At St John’s Nursing Home, we recognise the full importance of that final word in our title ‘Home!’ With 30 years of experience we have good awareness on your nursing needs. As a family-owned company we also like to place special emphasis on the warm and friendly atmosphere we have created. From friendly staff to the activities we offer and the availabilities of nutritious food we welcome you as part of the family.


Starting in 1988 with small 3 bed premises, Richard and Elizabeth Kitchen felt that they could provide homes that were more caring and friendly than others of the time.

Elizabeth’s hands-on experience as a Care Assistant gave them the fundamental knowledge they would need to make each of their homes a place in which they themselves would want to live.


Richard and Elizabeth Kitchen run four successful homes for the elderly. The care homes are Lavender House, Farmhouse and Springfield, but St John’s is the only nursing home. They are fully refurbished, offering comfortable and spacious accommodation. With dedicated, friendly staff on duty 24 hours a day, you can expect the highest standard of care.


St. John’s has a robust recruitment policy where the first requirements are kindness and experience in the job role.

We have members of 13 different nationalities working for the home.

Our registered Nurses are fully qualified and experienced within nursing home settings. By attending regular courses, they are supported with keeping up to date with their competencies.
