An outstanding care home in Portsmouth. A beautiful, purpose-built 64-bed care home, Hartford Court provides personalised residential, dementia, and respite care in the heart of the city of Portsmouth. Our home incorporates traditional English décor, set off to perfection with nautical touches inspired by the city’s proud naval heritage. Attention to detail in the interior design has ensured that it is as practical as it is inspiring, allowing our residents to take full advantage of the functional yet comfortable surroundings, in which to live their lives as independently and positively as possible.

UPDATE: at Hartford Care, we’ve been making some home improvements to all of our existing properties and Hartford Court has benefited from the following investments. Creation of four new ensuite bedrooms, decoration of all communal areas and corridors, new airconditioning units for communal spaces, new furniture throughout the home, new artwork throughout the home, and new garden furniture. Our facilities team will continue carrying out improvement works to all of our existing homes in such a way that residents are disturbed as little as possible. As always, our goal is to improve the lives of our residents by increasing comfort, activity options, and happiness.

Hartford Court benefits from strong management and committed team members, who ensure residents are not only safe and well cared for, but also happy and content. Our trained, compassionate and caring team has created an exceptional residential care home that provides a full programme of activities, entertainment and outings to cater for everyone’s taste.

A message from Michelle, Home Manager

"Throughout my long career in care, I have always had a passion for ensuring older people are valued and have a voice. I believe when people choose to live at Hartford Court, it’s the start of a new and exciting chapter in their life. Each person will be supported to ensure they are in charge of their own destiny, whilst we will do everything possible to ensure our people are treated with dignity and respect and live a fulfilled and happy life as independently as possible. Hartford Court is a beautiful home, but what hits you most when you walk through our doors is the warmth and family feel of the home. "
