About us

Knellwood was opened in 1947 as Farnborough’s memorial to local servicemen and servicewomen who gave their lives in the Second World War. Priority is given to applications from those living in the Farnborough area or with relatives in the borough.

Qualified nursing staff are on duty 24 hours a day and each member of our dedicated, caring team benefit from an ongoing training programme that reinforces our aims and objectives. All staff are carefully selected and we will only recruit those who demonstrate the skills and commitment necessary to meet the needs of our residents in a friendly and caring manner.

Our staff turnover is very low and we consider it to be one of our strengths. The vast majority of our staff have been at Knellwood for many years. As a result, we all have the benefit of getting to know our residents very well as individuals and they too get to know us.

Our team is responsible for agreeing and implementing care plans, tailored to individual needs and designed to ensure the best possible quality of life for each and every resident at Knellwood. The Registered Manager and Senior Nursing Staff are always available to discuss personal requirements or to answer questions.
