About Sunbury Nursing Homes

Sunbury Nursing Homes was founded by Marion Blamey, the great grandmother of the current owners and directors. We welcomed our first resident on October 2nd 1932 to what was then West Lodge Nursing Home. Weir House and Montford House, the properties either side of West Lodge, were subsequently purchased in the 1940s and run as nursing homes before eventually being amalgamated to form Sunbury Nursing Homes.

Throughout our history the home has always been owned and managed by the same family. When Marion died her grandsons, Edmund and Norman, ran the home together from 1959 until 1977 when Norman passed away. Edmund continued to run the home until his death in 1994, and from the 1960s, until her retirement in 2010, Edmund’s wife Ellen was Matron. Since Edmund’s passing the home has been owned and managed by their four children John, Joan, Norma and Christopher. The family connection also continues with some of the next generation working in the home.

The sense of family runs throughout the business. It is at the core of what we try to achieve and is maintained by our Registered Manager, Margaret Ring. Although not a member of the family, Margaret is the next best thing having been involved in the nursing home for over forty years! Our extended family of staff is at the heart of our care and many of our wonderful staff have been with us for more years than they would care to admit!

Sunbury Nursing Homes has had to continually evolve to meet the needs of the time without ever compromising the quality of care. We are fully registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to provide nursing care to older people, including those living with dementia, and our current capacity is 57 residents.
