From the manager

“ When you entrust a loved one to our care, you need to feel confident that we are committed to providing them with the highest level of professional support. We understand the concerns you face in choosing a residential home and are dedicated to providing our residents with an enjoyable stay that is tailored to their evolving individual needs. Every care plan we put together is tailored to meet the individual needs of the resident and includes input from the resident, doctors, relatives or representatives. The plan looks at a resident’s social and cultural preferences, as well as their therapeutic and medical needs. Rushymead has a rich history in the story of its transition from country house to residential care home. In 1839, John Statham of Amersham owned a small farmhouse and a nine-acre field called Rushy Meadow, then in the occupation of Joshua Payne. The house was occupied as a farmhouse, and the grounds cultivated until about 1985 when a much larger house was built here, by Thomas Arthur Howland, a wine and spirit merchant. About 1913, the Howland family put Rushymead on the market with an asking price of £16,000. In 1940, the employees of Forbes moved to Rusymead to avoid the London bombings. However, despite these precautions, in 1940 a large bomb fell in the grounds of Rushymead. Luckily the bomb did not explode and was recovered successfully. After the death of Thomas Forbes in 1951, Rushymead was bought by Broom & Wade, the High Wycombe engineering company, who used it as a staff college. In the 1960s, Rushymead was bought by Hillingdon Borough Council as an old people's home. In 1991, ownership of the home passed to Chiltern District Council, with the object of opening a hospice there. In 1997 Dr Michael Batt operating as The Michael Batt Charitable Trust purchased the home and set about modernising and improving the house. The Trust continues to operate Rushymead as a residential care home, administered by trustees, to this day. ”
