About the property

By giving residents numbered front doors and all the amenities they would have in their own homes, Watling Court seeks to build a real community within its walls. With Shops, markets and places of interest aplenty in town, and with excellent transport links, Watling Court’s residents get all the benefits of round-the-clock care in an environment designed to ensure they retain their independence.

Watling Court, opened in Gravesend in 2011, is Abbeyfield Kent’s first Extra Care Scheme.

Extra care is a concept which combines the independence of living behind your own front door with 24/7 support, care and companionship.

The scheme is a mixture of spacious one and two bedroom apartments. Each apartment benefits from a lounge, kitchen and wet room, and is fitted with high tech security and safety features.

Watling Court offers a range of communal lounges, a conservatory, dining room, and a spacious patio, in addition to a handy shop which sells a range of convenience goods.

Meet our staff

Our staff are incredibly dedicated to the society and its’ residents and our annual Spirit of Abbeyfield award recognises when staff go the extra mile within their job. Essentially the award is "The manifestation of the commitment to the Society which is significantly and clearly greater than could be reasonably expected in the course of one's duty or normal contact with the organisation."

We launched our Care Academy in March, something designed to give training, development and general support to its own staff and to external students who are attending course at college on health and social care subjects.


ActivitiesWe encourage residents to maintain their hobbies and we invite them to participate in planning events and trips with us. All of our homes have a garden area and many residents enjoy maintaining the garden. As well as outings, we celebrate holidays throughout the year and enjoy garden parties and fetes during the summer months. Our staff do their best to ensure our residents can continue pursuing their hobbies whilst they stay with us.
