About Hendra House
Thank you for visiting the Hendra House website. We hope the information contained will be informative and help you make important decisions about placing a loved one in a residential care setting.

Hendra House is an established family run residential home located in the beautiful and unspoilt market town of Ludlow in the heart of the South Shropshire countryside. The home is easily accessible by both road and public transport.

Hendra House has developed a well-deserved national and local reputation for delivering high quality care to its residents and their relatives in pursuit of the homes mission statement, which is:

"To provide a safe, caring, responsive, effective and well led service which consistently delivers an outstanding person centred service to meet fully the individual needs of our residents, their relatives and advocates at all times”.

During our most recent unannounced inspections in July 2015 the home was rated as “Outstanding” by the Care Quality Commission, and in doing so became the first home in the region to achieve this coveted accolade, a copy of the report can be viewed by clicking here.

This is just one of the many accolades awarded by the home, a more comprehensive list of awards and achievements can be found on our Awards For Excellence page
