Welcome to our home

Southfield House is a privately-owned residential care home in Woodford, where 23 individuals live in relaxed, comfortable surroundings with the reassurance of professional 24 hour care.

A Residential Care Home since the late 1980’s, Southfield House has been under its present ownership since July 2000. Our aim is to enable older people from our multi-cultural and socially diverse town to continue living as independently as possible by receiving care and support consistent with their capacities and abilities.

Southfield House has all single rooms, which allow our residents to lead as individual and as private a life as they choose. In addition, there are communal areas for reading, meeting and chatting, viewing television and, of course, for dining, which individuals may use as frequently or as infrequently as they desire. As well as traditional residential care we now offer ‘Assisted Living’ in our dedicated facility ‘Norwood’.


We have a lovely large garden with its own south facing patio area and provide a range of activities most days throughout the year.

Most importantly, our team of 26 professionally-trained and experienced staff is dedicated to ensuring that the health, personal and social care needs of each individual resident are met each day.


Anyone over the age of 65 years is welcome to apply for a place at Southfield House. Our current residents are aged from early 70’s to over 100. We are committed to ensuring that no one is excluded on the grounds of his or her ethnicity, religion or culture and we discuss with applicants how their individual and cultural needs can be met.
