About our Lee House care home in Wimbledon

Lee house has 27 en-suite bedrooms many of which have a balcony or patio doors which look out onto the beautiful well established garden. Lee House is very much a home away from home, with a cosy atmosphere and friendly, caring staff who are available 24 hours a day.

We understand that moving to Lee House can be a big lifestyle change, and our dedicated staff team are on hand to help support new residents and their families. We encourage individuals to bring in personal items, such as furniture, pictures and decorations, to make the room as unique and individual as you are and to make it their own. Each resident will have a care plan that is individual to them, created with the input of the resident, family/friends, staff and any others involved in their care.
