Update Covid 19
The Coombe House continues to be virus-free throughout the pandemic due to the vigilance and professionalism of our wonderful staff.
In these unprecedented times we have maintained stringent Infection Control procedures in accordance with government guidelines. Furthermore we have our own strict procedures to ensure as far as possible the safety of our residents, and we will continue with these as long as necessary in order to protect The Coombe House from Coronavirus.
Currently, families and friends are welcome to see their relatives outside in our gardens. Please telephone the home to make an appointment. This arrangement will remain until we consider it is safe to lift these restrictions.

What relatives have been saying about us...
I am so very pleased with the way that the staff at Coombe House look after the residents, I doubt if I could find a better place for my mother, if she has any problems the staff do their utmost to help her. As a visitor, I always feel very welcome.
The home is run very much as a family environment and has a wonderful atmosphere. Visitors are welcome at anytime and always offered refreshments and if required an update on the resident's well being. The staff are always professional but also how great affection for the residents. An excellent home from home.
