Our Home

Chilton Croft is privately owned, which allows us to always put residents first and adapt swiftly to every potential need.

Our 32 single rooms, soon to be extended to 39 with the exciting addition of new accommodation, are created for comfort and safety. Each room is fitted with a call button, television point, landline, mobile phone and internet access. Residents can also bring furniture and many choose to personalise with pictures or mementos to establish familiar surroundings.

The décor at Chilton Croft is designed to be engaging and uplifting. Walls adorned with memory boxes, together with scenes, themes and memorabilia chosen as inspirational conversation points enable residents to reminisce, recognise and live in the moment, which many find comforting and reassuring.

Relax into the Chilton Croft lifestyle and live with your freedom


Mealtimes are a relaxed affair, with first-class catering and delicious home-cooked food created by our chef and nutritional experts. Freshly prepared, balanced menus, tailored and delivered by our culinary team, provide excellent dishes with plenty of choice for health and hydration. Together with a resident’s kitchenette, the hostess trolley laden with goodies provides tasty treats three times a day.
