Who we are…

Nower Care is the business trading name of Dorking Residential Care Homes Limited, a ‘Not-for-Profit’ organisation that is registered as a ‘Charity’ under the Industrial & Provident Societies Act 1965. Nower Care aims to provide exceptional residential care for the elderly at its single Home - Nower House in Dorking.

Nower Care is controlled by a ‘voluntary’ Management Committee, which normally consists of 10 interested local individuals, two of whom are usually Mole Valley Councillors. The business is run on a ‘day-to-day’ basis by our General Manager: Chris Horwood, whose mission is to ensure the continuity of the Home, whilst providing first class accommodation and care for elderly people with local connections, with a clear, realistic and affordable fee structure.

We believe Nower House to be the premier ‘Not-for-Profit’ Residential Care Home in Surrey. We provide exclusive, first-stage, low dependancy residential accommodation for up to 50 residents, who may well be leaving their own home for the first time. Nower House is set on an acre plot that is situated in a quiet part of Dorking, and yet is within walking distance of the town. Arrangements are made for the less mobile to use the Mole Valley Dial-a-Ride service.

The Nower, a pleasant open park with views to Leith Hill, Ranmore and Box Hill, is close by. For more detailed information and our Website Privacy Notice, please refer to our Documents.

“Just a quick note to express my sincere thanks to you and all the staff at Nower House (or the Nower Hotel as Phyll would say!) for all your loving care of Phyll over the last two years. She really enjoyed her stay with you. Hilary and I have often said how fortunate we were to find such a wonderful place with such a caring staff and lovely atmosphere.”
