About Us

Our History

Lister House was built between 1849 and 1896 as the vicarage for Listers Mill. The building since then had been used as a private home, a gem museum and then a computer company. In 1989 the building was bought and was converted into a care home and in January 1990 was opened to look after 18 clients.

In 2000 the Home was extended and upgraded to allow the Home to be able to take care of a further 14 clients making a total of 32 clients. Some of our more senior staff have been with us since we started, and this is proof that our family- based run home is well loved by both clients and staff.

Sherrington House was originally built around 1849 and was the original Doctors surgery for the staff at Listers Mill. After several businesses operating from the House in 2003 we bought Sherrington House, but sadly through years of neglect the original house had to be demolished.

In January 2004 the foundations of the beginnings of the New Sherrington House started. In August 2005 we opened our doors with a capacity of 39 beds. Once again, we have senior staff who have been with us since we opened. The Home is run in the same way as Lister House, with family and love at the very heart of our ethos. Nothing is too much trouble for us and our staff.
