Langham Court is one of two care homes on the 30 acre Huntington & Langham Estate in Hindhead, Surrey, a residential care setting, which was set up by the Hoare family in 1978. The Estate is still owned and operated by the family, whose passion for care has grown the business significantly over the past 40 years. The owners take real pride in providing high-quality care, based in a beautiful setting. Recognising the differing needs of its residents, their holistic approach combines specialised training for staff with innovative therapies, supporting residents to live as full a life as possible.
Langham Court was constructed in 2013, offering a modern facility to care for those living with dementia. The finance from socially responsible lenders Triodos Bank UK and Unity Trust will also support the provision of new communal areas for residents including large eating and social spaces, offering views of the countryside. Langham Court also cater for non-residents, allowing the elderly in the community to access respite and daytime care. The new rooms will take the home’s capacity from 29 currently, to 40 once the work has been completed, making it a significant expansion.
Charlie Hoare, director at Huntington & Langham Estate, proudly explains why their approach supports residents’ dignity and quality of life: “Often, people with dementia can be confined to small, sterile spaces. Langham Court provides a blueprint for a model of care that truly supports the rights and freedom of people living with dementia. The new development work adds to the sense of independence we are trying to achieve.”
The Huntington & Langham Estate is a real family venture, with a person-centred approach at its core. Marilyn Hoare, Charlie’s mother, opened Huntington House in 1978, and lives on-site with her extended family to this day, still with a very hands-on involvement; imparting her wisdom to the team and spending time with people who also call the estate their home. Now, with her children Charlie and Sarah, and husband, Geoff, heavily involved as Directors, the family and their expert team maintain the highest standard of care for residents, with compassion at the heart of their offering, as it has been for more than 40 years.
Paul Nicoll, social and cultural lending team manager at Triodos Bank UK, said: “Our mission as a bank is to work for a society with human dignity at its core. We’re proud to support high-quality, high-impact care establishments such as Huntington & Langham, and it’s inspiring for us to work with Charlie and the team as they seek to realise their vision.”
Matthew Conroy, relationship manager at Unity Trust Bank, said:“We are extremely proud to support the development of Langham Court and contribute towards an enhanced quality of life for people in the local community. Unity is dedicated to working with organisations that share our values and understand our vision to improve society. We are delighted our funding has enabled continued pioneering care to H&L residents.”
Works started at Langham Court in March and, despite the significant challenges of 2020, are expected to be completed in Spring 2021.
