About Friends of the Elderly Coulsdon

Category: Residential and nursing care

Tucked away within picturesque grounds behind Woodcote Park Golf Course, we provide residential and nursing care at our Coulsdon site across two Georgian-style properties, Woodcote Grove House and Orford House.

Woodcote Grove House is a Grade II listed Georgian home and provides residential and nursing care. Orford House was also built in the Georgian style and provides residential care. Both homes are staffed by a compassionate, enthusiastic team dedicated to making Coulsdon feel like home.

Everyone is different – that’s why we create a personalised care plan for each of our residents. That way, we can make sure that your individual needs are being catered for.

We also offer respite care at Woodcote Grove House and Orford House. Contact us to find out more.

Pauline King, Manager

“We’re genuine, we’re passionate and we’re excited about what we do and our work with our residents – looking to the future and empowering them to have as much independence, choice and control in their lives as possible.

Our utmost priority is that all our residents feel safe and secure – their interests are the heart of everything we do and our approach is very much that we work in partnership with their relatives and families – who will never be side-lined or in the background over their loved one’s care.

Making a difference is important, and we meet regularly as a team to reflect on what we could have done differently.”


Fees are based on an assessment of your individual care needs and will be calculated following a visit. Our fees at Friends of the Elderly Coulsdon start from £950 per week.
