The Homemakers of Hamberley
When Hamberley Care Homes first began, we noticed how stagnant the care industry had become. Most care homes provided almost exactly the same service, and we wanted to be different.
We wanted to pioneer a new model of care, allowing our residents to experience a completely holistic approach to their care. That’s where the Homemakers come in.
You’ll struggle to find another care home in Sevenoaks that offers something like ‘The Homemakers of Hamberley’ – these care professionals are carers, housekeepers, and companions to our residents, all at the same time.
Homemakers work alongside our Clinical Leads and nurses so they can appreciate the requirements of each of our residents and help deliver consistent, meaningful care.
As they’re also companions, our Homemakers are people residents can play games with, go out to lunch with, or just sit quietly and share a cup of tea with.
When it comes to maintaining our luxury standard of home, our Homemakers are on it – they’ll be on call for any housekeeping, making sure that resident’s rooms are kept clean and tidy.
Our Wellbeing & Lifestyle Coaches
Like all Hamberley Care Homes, our Sevenoaks care home has an in-house Wellbeing & Lifestyle Coach. These specialist care workers are committed to helping residents live fulfilling and meaningful lives, in the home and the outside world.
This begins from the first conversation, where Nesbit House’s Wellbeing & Lifestyle Coach will pay attention to resident’s life stories, their likes and dislikes, the hobbies they enjoy and the activities they like to get involved in.
Through getting to know each resident in detail, we can build a Personalised Wellbeing Programme – these plans ensure that residents can continue to lead satisfying and meaningful lives.

We aim to support residents as much as possible. That’s why our Wellbeing & Lifestyle Coach takes any opportunity to help residents become more physically active, as well as mentally stimulated by organising activities and events to help them socialise.
