About Culwood House

Christopher Webb, Manager

Culwood House was established as a Residential Care Home for the Elderly by Anita Larkin in 1988. It is a two storey Victorian building situated in the beautiful countryside of the Chilterns, 5 minutes drive from Chesham town centre.


We are registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to accommodate 19 persons who require nursing or personal care (although 2 rooms are registered if we have couples so most of the time we only accommodate 17 residents). Although we are a residential care home for the elderly, we are able to manage extra care needs such as dementia and palliative care. All our bedrooms are en-suite and basically furnished. We encourage our residents to personalise their rooms as items of furniture, bedding, photos and pictures can make a room feel more comfortable and homely.


Rachel Elton-Jones, Deputy Manager
Our residents have access to a communal lounge, dining room and conservatory as well as a large garden and two summerhouses (one of which doubles as a relative’s room so relatives can stay overnight if required). We have three specialist bathrooms and a nurse call bell system is located throughout the home.


Due to the smaller size of the home, we feel we are able to offer a warm, homely environment to our residents. We believe this also enables our carer assistants to build closer relationships with our residents and cater for their needs on a more personal level. We welcome visitors any time, within reason, into Culwood House. We will also accept as visitors, well behaved pets at the management’s discretion.
