About Georgian House

Georgian House Nursing Home is a family owned business in every sense of the word! It is owned and managed by Mr & Mrs Hopley whom are helped by their daughter-in-law, Dr Andrea Hopley. It opened in 1989 and, since then, has built a reputation for delivering professional nursing care in a very friendly and family orientated atmosphere.

We are registered with the Commission for Social Care Inspectors ("CSCI") and offer nursing and residential care for older people aged 65 years and above. The Home provides accommodation for 28 persons, mostly in single en suite rooms with larger rooms available for couples/companions.

Georgian House is based in Ealing, West London. Ealing is extremely well located with good road links, bus routes and Tube stations close by (South Ealing, Northfields and West Ealing are all equidistant) making the Home accessible for friends and family who wish to visit.

The home is a lovely building which has a wonderfully large, south facing garden. The residents make the most of this garden whenever the weather permits. The building itself has two floors.

The ground floor has 7 bedrooms (2 double and 5 standard.) There is also a dining room, a sunny, large lounge overlooking the garden, a quiet room, assisted bathroom and toilet facilities. Also situated on the ground floor are the manager's office, the nurses' station, the kitchen and laundry room.

The second floor has 13 bedrooms, 3 of which are double. Most rooms have en-suite facilities. Rooms that do not have their own en suite facilities are fitted with wash basins and vanity units.

All rooms have TV's, nurse call systems and telephone lines connected to the main switchboard. Some residents have also had direct telephone lines installed in their rooms. Each room is decorated and furnished to a high standard, although each resident is encouraged to personalise their room with items that are special to them.

The Home is tastefully decorated and a programme of maintenance is in place to ensure that standards remain high yet the 'homely' feel is preserved. Before each new resident is considered for a place we visit them at their home or in hospital and assess their needs. This ensures that we have all the necessary resources to meet their needs and can arrange for the involvement of other community healthcare professionals and services as required.

Neither Mr & Mrs Hopley or their daughter-in-law are resident in the Home but all are always on call and are within a 3 mile radius.

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is based on the understanding that each of our residents is entitled to a level of care and respect that will allow them to continue to live their lives in our care home with dignity.

We will provide you with a homely, comfortable, safe and welcoming environment and will encourage you to be as independent as possible. We aim to offer you the opportunity to enhance the quality of your life by providing a high quality, safe and manageable environment which, together with support and stimulation from our well trained and caring staff, will maximise your physical, intellectual, emotional and social potential.


Dr. Andrea Hopley is 38 years old and has recently come on board to help with the management of the Home. She is dynamic and committed to maintaining the Homes's excellent reputation and unique atmosphere.

Dr. Hopley qualified as a medical doctor in 1991 from St. Thomas's Hospital. Following training in A&E, General Medicine and Surgery, she changed careers and qualified as a lawyer from the College of Law, Guildford. Andrea practised as a commercial litigator in a City law firm for four years. Following the arrival of her four children (who are frequent visitors to the Home), Dr Hopley is currently working alongside Mr & Mrs Hopley in the management and running of the HOme and is currently undergoing training for the Registered Manager's Award.

The Nursing Manager is Cecile Bauzon.

Staffing Levels

These are subject to continuous review and are based upon the dependency levels of our residents.

Currently, we have a team of 8 registered nurses who work around the clock. Alongside the registered nurses there is a dedicated team of 14 carers. Currently we have three shifts operating and these run from 8.00 am - 2.00 pm, 2.00 pm - 8.00 pm and a night shift from 8.00 pm - 8.00 am. Each shift has at least one registered nurse in charge and the total numbers on each shift are six in the morning, five in the afternoon and two during the night.

Our reputation is based on the loyal and dedicated staff who provide an extremely high quality of care. One member of staff retired in June 2007 after having worked with us for over ten years!

It is our policy to encourage staff to improve their skills so that they become more confident and therefore more effective in their work.

All staff receive a full induction designed to familiarise them with the Home and its operating procedures. This induction includes a significant theory element designed to stimulate and improve overall awareness and the importance of promoting the rights of individuals as well as other sections that cover the practicalities of first aid, moving and handling skills and basic food hygiene.

Care staff are encouraged to participate in the NVQ Level 2 training programme which is designed to increase their understanding of the issues surrounding the provision of care for the elderly. Opportunities exist to extend this training and several staff are to progress onto NVQ3 this year.
