The Old Rectory Care Home opened in July 2012 by Michael and Philippa Turner after several months of refurbishment on a former health and fitness centre. The Rectory itself has a long and interesting history dating back to the eighteenth century. It was originally constructed as the private residence for the rector of Donnington. The building was sympathetically renovated returning its former glory, with many original features maintained.
The Old Rectory is managed by Mrs Philippa Turner, RMA, who is supported by a dedicated team of caring staff who are qualified and experienced to meet the needs of the residents.
Philippa has over 25 years experience within the care sector; 12 years of which was as a successful owner and manager of a care home for elderly frail and EMI residents.
Philippa has a proven record of improving and maintaining high standards within the care sector for older people.
We aim to provide a service which is unique to the industry. As a family owned home, The Old Rectory is able to provide a way of life which cannot be found elsewhere. Residents at the Rectory often feel as though they are a part of an extended family which makes the later years of life so much more meaningful.
We recommend that you visit The Old Rectory to gain a greater sense of the service which is provided here. Whether you observe an activities session, join us for a meal or simply wander around the halls of our beautiful eighteenth century house we are convinced that you will leave with some understanding of our service.
We are consistently striving to provide a high quality service to all of those in our care.
Over time our home has become synonymous with exceptional care, good food and first-rate customer service.
I am confident that these characteristics will be apparent to anyone who visits our home and are evident in everything that we do.
