Meadowside Residential Care Home is a small, comfortable, family-run residential care home for the elderly situated just outside Marlow town centre. It is housed in an elegant, turn of the century Edwardian-style property that has been converted with care and regard for the special needs of elderly people. Our aim is to create a family atmosphere for all our residents. Accommodation is available for up to twelve residents; a small number that enables staff to give the utmost individual care and personal attention to each resident in a homely and happy atmosphere. We are regulated by the Care Quality Commission and comply with the required standards for residential care while maintaining a home-from-home environment familiar to us all.

The building and all rooms are wheelchair accessible, and there is a lift to the first floor to facilitate this. Our rooms are pleasantly decorated, generous in size and comfortably furnished according to residents’ wishes. This includes individual bedside and ceiling lighting, personal television, adjustable central heating and a newly installed ‘state-of-the art’ nurse-call system. All but one of the rooms is equipped with private en suite facilities consisting of a toilet and vanity basin. The premises conform to current fire, health and safety regulations.
The rear garden is mostly laid to lawn with well-established shrubs, roses and flowers. There is a conservatory and upper and lower patio areas with a range of seating. The upper patio and conservatory provide a beautiful view of the garden, and there are a number of birds nesting in the bird houses that the residents like to observe in the comfort of the conservatory. There is ample car parking space for residents’ families and visitors to the front of the property, with staff car parking to the rear.
As part of our service we also provide nutritious home-cooked meals, in-house laundry, and a range of tailored activities with opportunities to participate in outings to a variety of venues – from the garden centre to the theatre. Additional services available include a visiting unisex hairdresser, a chiropodist, a main telephone and/or the option of a private ‘portable’ telephone as well as daily newspapers/magazines.
We welcome visitors any time, within reason, into Meadowside. And we also welcome well-behaved pets at the Management’s discretion.
Our small-scale, family-run ethos has created a calm, home-from-home, comfortable, safe and secure environment for all our residents – qualities we believe are fundamental to high-quality, personalised care.

I think it’s very friendly here. You just can’t beat it.
Meadowside provides very good care indeed.
We spoke with relatives of people who used the service. Everyone told us they were happy with the care provided.
One resident told us staff were very respectful of their religious needs, and another two people told us they felt respected by the staff.
People were supported in promoting their independence and community involvement.
One person told us they had previously been living in another service. They described the difference between the services; they said they felt ‘really looked after here’.
One person attended a coffee morning during the week; another had visitors from a local organisation. This person told us how important contact was for them; this made them feel they were still part of their community.
Care and treatment was planned and delivered in a way that was intended to ensure people’s safety and welfare.
