Meet the Family

The Huntington & Langham Estate has been in the safe hands of my family since 1977, when my mother, Marilyn, made the decision to turn Huntington House into a first-class care home. We opened our doors a year later, and four decades on, we still maintain the highest standards of care, with our family and expert staff pushing the boundaries by offering pioneering care in beautiful surroundings. With my mother and father still very much involved, and my sister and I at the helm, you’ll find high-quality care and compassion at the heart of our home. Here are our stories:

"It was brilliant growing up here at Huntington House, and I most certainly share my parents’ passion of wanting to help everyone in our care and make their lives as happy, healthy and stimulating as possible. Huntington House has a fantastic reputation that we have worked very hard to achieve, and Langham Court, which was built in 2013, offers ‘Outstanding’ dementia care – I couldn’t be prouder of this and hope that we can keep providing such fantastic care to our residents for many years to come."

"I love how we’re a big family here at the Huntington & Langham Estate, with my parents, brother, husband and children all here, and our extended family of staff and residents – it really makes this place special. I’m so proud of what my parents have achieved over the past 40 years, providing such high-quality care to this area over an incredibly long period. With Langham Court now offering ‘Outstanding’ specialist dementia care and Huntington House still offering first-rate residential and nursing care, I’m excited to see what the next 40 years shall bring for us all."

"When I first met Marilyn, her passionate approach to elderly care really moved me. We married in 1984 and at this point, I became a Director here, with a mission to create the best possible environment for our residents to enjoy. From early extensions to current renovations, along with the build of Langham Court – which I’m pleased to say provides ‘Outstanding’ care – I have made sure that the high standards everyone expects from us have always been upheld. I couldn’t be prouder of what Marilyn has achieved, creating one of the very best care homes in the county, if not the country."

"I never thought that when I purchased Huntington House back in 1977 as a derelict building that I would be standing here over 40 years on, having made such a difference to many local people in their later years. It took three months to renovate the building with a lot of hard work between myself and Jimmy – my magnificent maintenance man – and I feel so privileged to still be a part of it today. It’s an absolute honour seeing how much we help so many people each and every day, which is what inspired me to start out in the first place."

Our entire team at the Huntington & Langham Estate is part of the family, as we all share the same ethos that all care matters, and everyone is willing to go the extra mile to keep our residents happy and healthy. Here are just five of the many friendly faces you’ll see around our homes – be sure to say hello when you come and see us!
