Welcome to The Poplars Care Centre in Maidstone, Kent. Within easy reach of the town centre, our delightful friendly home offers 24-hour care for those over the age of 65. We are blessed with a long-serving team of nursing and support staff that provide high-quality, person-centred care within our homely environment. We offer flexible long-term, respite and post-operative care.

The Poplars is a large detached house, comprising 56 bedrooms, 15 of which are companion bedrooms for couples who wish to share. Most of these bedrooms come equipped with an en-suite as standard. We encourage residents to furnish their new surroundings with familiar pieces of furniture and personal possessions to make them feel truly at home. While our bedrooms provide a tranquil area to rest and relax, our light and airy day rooms offer residents the opportunity to catch up with friends over a pot of tea, enjoy one of our guest entertainers or simply recline in front of their favourite films.

At The Poplars, we encourage residents to take part in a range of engaging activities based on their lifestyle needs and preferences. Many of our activities take place within the home environment and include garden parties, barbecues, flower arranging, arts/crafts and quiz nights. We empower individuals to enjoy those everyday routines they cherish, whether that’s having a salon blow-dry and manicure or keeping up to date with their favourite sports team. All are encouraged and available. As well as being encouraged to enjoy our magnificent landscaped gardens, residents also enjoy regular days out to Canterbury and seasonal trips to the seaside.

Our professional catering team deliver nutritionally balanced meals that are appealing for our residents. Our professional food suppliers specialise in delivering high-quality food designed specifically for the healthcare sector.

We warmly welcome you to The Poplars where you can learn more about the caring life we offer.


All potential residents have their needs thoroughly assessed by our multidisciplinary team. We need to assure ourselves that The Poplars is suitable for their care and note any specific care that is appropriate. Our staff often work with the resident prior to admission, to ensure that all care needs are thoroughly understood to enable a seamless transfer.

A typical pathway is:

  • referral by commissioner or self / family
  • visit to our care centre
  • assessment by our multidisciplinary team
  • funding discussion / assistance


Nothing we can say on this website can convey the understanding, warmth and care that our staff have for our residents. Our reputation is one we are very proud of and as rooms are in very short supply we often have to operate a waiting list. It is best if you meet with us at your earliest opportunity to register your interest. Please visit The Poplars at any time, however as we are a busy home it’s best to telephone and arrange a visit with our manager, or administrator who will show you around.

I am the centre manager at The Poplars care centre and nursing home in Maidstone.  I have over 30 years’ experience in the health and care industry, starting my career as a student nurse before moving into management. During my years as a manager I have developed a passion for care of older people and enjoy leading my teams to support the people who live with us to preserve their independence and maintain social activities. It’s a very rewarding role and I feel privileged to lead the team at The Poplars. We care for people with an approach that is as individual as the people themselves.
