Founded in 1946 by Dr. Ludwig Guttmann to support military personnel with spinal injuries from World War II, The Chaseley Trust remains dedicated to realizing his vision of fostering full and active lives beyond disabilities. Today, we stand as a distinctive, independent 55-bed nursing home, owned by a charitable organization. Our specialization lies in providing long-term nursing and respite care for individuals facing complex disabilities, including Acquired and Traumatic Brain Injury, Stroke, Spinal Cord Injury, and Degenerative Neurological Conditions such as Huntington's Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Motor Neurone, and Parkinson’s disease.

We have a dedicated GP service (Monday to Friday) for reviewing complex care needs, facilitating changes, and making specialized referrals. Residents actively participate in planning their rehabilitation, supported holistically to achieve personalized goals. Our therapy team assesses individual needs and the impact of neurological conditions on daily life, working together to create customized treatment plans focused on rehabilitation, prevention, improving quality of life, or managing conditions. Experienced staff ensure residents' safety and comfort during their journey to independence, maintaining a coordinated approach at all times.
