About Us

What Makes Us Different?

As a registered charity, the Royal Cambridge Home (RCH) is a not for-profit establishment which we believe sets us apart from most other care organisations. The unpaid Trustees give their time liberally and all the savings made ensure that this historic home offers excellent value in terms of comfort and care for all its residents. It means that our resources can be focussed on providing a ‘’home from home’’ experience. The Royal Cambridge Home offers a full range of services all on one site based in the leafy suburb of East Molesey, Surrey, near Hampton Court and the River Thames, including residential and respite care. A dedicated and compassionate team work hard to maintain a happy atmosphere to make life comfortable, safe and stimulating for all our residents.

The Home is registered by the Care Quality Commission as a 30 bed home.  For many years we only accommodated widows of ex-servicemen. While we still maintain strong connections with the Armed Services we are delighted also now to be able to welcome residents of either gender who do not have any such connection


Residents are encouraged to participate in the daily life of the Home with a wide selection of in-house activities plus shopping trips, pub lunches, excursions and attendance at Founder's Day at The Royal Hospital Chelsea.​

The Royal Cambridge Home is managed by a team of Directors all of whom are Trustees, who liaise with the Home's Manager to oversee the general day-to-day running of the Home.  The Home is responsible for its own finances and fees which are reviewed annually.  Residents on low incomes may be eligible for State benefits.

Our Heritage

The Royal Cambridge Home was founded in Kingston-upon-Thames in 1851 in memory of the first Duke of Cambridge and has been providing residential care, initially for the widows of soldiers since that time.  The Home moved to its present site in East Molesey in 1944 following war damage to the original Home.

Surveys & Feedback

We regularly survey residents, relatives and staff.  We also hold regular meetings to ensure that everybody is up-to-date with Home life.  We listen to feedback and act on it accordingly.
