About Friends of the Elderly Malvern

Category: Residential, nursing and dementia care

With a person-focused approach to care, Davenham, Bradbury Court and Perrins House are picturesque homes situated in beautiful grounds in Malvern. Specialising in care for people with dementia, as well as residential and nursing care, we have a dedicated, well-trained and compassionate team of staff on hand to ensure that Malvern feels like home.

Across the three homes at Friends of the Elderly Malvern, our rooms have en-suite facilities, and views overlooking the beautiful gardens and Malvern Hills. With bright and airy lounges, spacious dining rooms and a sun room, alongside an extensive library, sensory garden and an onsite galleried chapel, Malvern is designed to make you feel at home.

We create personalised care plans for each of our residents, meaning an individual 24-hour care package is tailored to specific needs.

At each of our Malvern homes we’re also able to offer respite care. Contact us if you’d like to find out more.

  • Although joined and sharing the same grounds and management team each Malvern home is specialised to offer a different type of care – residential care at Davenham, nursing care at Perrins House and dementia care at Bradbury Court.
  • You may move between Davanham, Bradbury Court and Perrins House as your needs may change so that you can be in the home that keeps you as independent as possible while meeting your needs. This avoids the need for you to find a new home while also offering consistency and maintaining an already well established relationship.
  • We are very fortunate to have a strong activity team, led by a co-ordinator who supports activities across the three homes. For example we have a lovely tea room in Bradbury Court which is accessible every day but more formally opened and ran by volunteers weekly where residents from all the homes come to meet up and socialise.
  • We offer a varied programme of events at Malvern, including seated exercise classes, quizzes, visiting entertainment, trips out for a pub lunch or tea and cake – activities are tailored to each resident.
  • Choose from a wide range of nutritious, delicious meals, alongside a range of snacks and fruit available in between meal times.
  • As the former family home of the famous Dyson Perrins dynasty enjoy the beautiful buildings and stunning grounds– perfect for sitting outside and enjoying a good day’s weather, reading a book and meeting family.
  • Our rooms come fully furnished, however residents are encouraged bring their own personal furniture and belongings to make their room comfortable and homely.

This report incorporates Bradbury Court and Davenham. Perrins House was recently deregistered and add to the Malvern CQC registration so its report is no longer valid. We are waiting inspection under the new registration of all three care homes.

Samantha Corfield, Manager

I have worked within the care industry for over 10 years and prior to that I worked in the housing sector providing advice and assistance to homeless families. My role at Friends of the Elderly is to manage the three homes located on the Malvern site. My job is so varied, there isn’t a day that goes by when I’m not inspired by the people I meet.

I like to think that we all have a shared vision here at Malvern, which is to provide high quality care, in a historic yet modern setting within expansive grounds. I support our entire team to ensure our residents are given opportunities every day to do something different and live life to the full surrounded by people who truly care for them.

Friends of the Elderly Malvern, in my mind, gives the very best of times in the very best of locations.
