Langdon House is a purpose built residential care home for older people situated in Chesterton on the north-eastern side of Cambridge, a mile from the city centre. It is a beautifully designed spacious home with attractive gardens.

There are 51 single rooms, all with ensuite facilities to accommodate residents who are frail, elderly and may have a diagnosis of dementia. The facilities include a ground floor dementia unit, with a specialist team of staff dedicated to caring for and supporting these residents. In order to endure peace of mind, all rooms are linked to a call system when staff assistance is required. The home is fully wheelchair accessible. Bedrooms are close to shared living and dining rooms. In addition, all bathrooms are equipped with adapted fittings for an improved quality of life. A range of activities from singing, exercise, reading and art are organised for residents. We encourage them to grow vegetables and relax in the garden when the weather allows.
