Some bed availability
At Hothfield we treat and care for patients over the age of 18 with a brain injury or other neurological condition such as multiple sclerosis, motor neurone disease and parkinson's disease.
There are three buildings on our 12 acre site: the original Manor House, a separate brain injury rehabilitation centre and a row of seven bungalows. We offer a range of services, from intense rehabilitation in the months immediately following a brain injury right through to independent living for those patients preparing to go home. We also offer residential care.
The centre is in pretty surroundings. We’re in the middle of the Kent countryside and we have a beautiful gardens.
We’re half a mile from the centre of Hothfield village, and there’s a 13th-century church virtually on our doorstep. The thriving town of Ashford is just three miles away.
In September 2017, CQC rated our Hothfield service as "good" across all five domains.
"Staff knew people and their support needs well. The care and support needs of each person were different, and each person's care plan was personal to them....Staff were caring, kind and respected people's privacy and dignity. There were positive and caring interactions between the staff and people and people were comfortable and at ease with the staff." (CQC, September 2017)

Our purpose-built 17-bed rehabilitation unit provides assessment and intensive rehabilitation for patients with acquired brain injuries and other neurological conditions. We treat people who no longer need the high level of nursing or medical care provided by an NHS hospital but would benefit from a short period of rehabilitation.
This is for people who have either already undergone rehabilitation or who wouldn’t gain the maximum benefit from a short, intense rehabilitation programme. Slow Stream rehabilitation is designed for patients who need time to practise new skills before moving to a community-based setting or home.
The focus is on providing relief from pain, discomfort or stress and is all about improving a client's everyday quality of life. Most clients have either severe and far -reaching disabilities or may be in the later stages of a progressive neurological condition. We can also provide respite care to give families and carers a much needed break.
We can all see a significant improvement in his outlook and demeanour ever since he was transferred to Hothfield. He's become more cheerful and determined to 'fight' for a full recovery.
I know it is still early days and he has quite a journey ahead of him to recovery, but as a friend, I couldn't wish for a more optimistic start to this journey!
A BIG THANK YOU to you and your team at Hothfield for the superb care that my relative has received so far.
Make Hothfield your own
There are plenty of opportunities to bring your own personal touches to day to day life here at Hothfield. We encourage our patients to be as independent as possible. We like it when families are actively involved in a loved one’s care, helping us to set the right goals for a patient each step of the way.
The centre is run by manager Ruth Lambert. Ruth is supported by specialist nurses, a personal activities leader and care workers. Our team of experts includes physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, plus a clinical psychologist, a consultant in neuro-rehabilitation and a visiting GP. Our doctors, nurses and therapists are here to help patients live as independently as they can.
