KYN offers unrivalled levels of personalised, holistic nursing, dementia and palliative care  

KYN, the care home innovator seeking to advance and enhance the perception and experience of later life care, is to open a new home in June next to the prestigious Hurlingham Club.  KYN Hurlingham will provide a pioneering approach to care which prioritises the individual in a safe, uplifting environment where residents have as much independence as they wish.    

According to the KYN philosophy, the team at KYN Hurlingham will learn as much as possible about residents’ past, present and future preferences before they move in.  Emphasis is placed on giving residents full autonomy, in a safe and beautiful environment, with no set schedule to adhere to, and a culture that promotes individual pursuits alongside plenty of opportunities to socialise, building both a sense of belonging and being at home. A dedicated life-enrichment team provide a rich variety of experiences such as calligraphy, bridge, gardening and wine tasting, and a concierge will make arrangements for residents as requested with chauffeured transport on hand. Every resident will be given the highest personal care according to their level of need, with dedicated nurses and carers, an in-house physiotherapist and a weekly GP visit.  Furthermore, KYN Hurlingham will be the first care home to offer regular specialist medical cover via consultant geriatrician Dr Shane Roche.      

KYN has spent two years sympathetically restoring the notable Grade II building on Daisy Lane in the heart of Fulham, which was originally built in 1855 and served as a school and youth club.  Refined interiors of casual elegance have been created by leading British designer Nina Campbell with art selected by renowned curator Adam Ellis.  In all, the home offers a choice of rooms and suites, and a range of spaces to enjoy such as The Great Room – a high ceilinged dining room and bar with original intricate stonework, beams and fireplace; a library, a state-of-the-art screening room, several cosy sitting rooms and private dining spaces, and The KYTH Spa providing Bamford products, massages, hair and nail treatments.   

The grounds have also received a comprehensive restoration, with award-winning gardener Randle Siddeley designing a walled garden and outdoor roof terraces. The seasonal planting and layout of the gardens is devised to promote mood, cognition, and mental and physical wellbeing, and to provide a wonderful environment for families to meet with their loved ones. On the upper floor, tranquil west and south facing terraces overlook either Hurlingham Park or The Parsons Green Sports & Social Club and provide ample opportunity for residents to enjoy the benefits of natural daylight all year round.  

Beyond the physical environment at KYN Hurlingham, residents’ food and nutrition has received the same level of detailed planning and care.  Working alongside expert nutritionist Eva Humphries, award winning chef Tristan Welch has designed daily changing menus with an emphasis on fresh, seasonal ingredients and satisfying flavours tailored to residents’ palates and nutritional needs. Menus and service are delivered to five-star hotel standards by a dedicated hospitality team, whether a resident is eating in the privacy of their own room at whatever time they choose or settling down for an intimate lunch or dinner with family and friends. 

Commissioning Home Manager Jordan Pereira commented: “I am extremely proud to be opening KYN Hurlingham in June, every detail of what we do has been carefully considered to create a beautiful and enjoyable environment where family and friends genuinely look forward to spending precious time together.  The KYN philosophy for care is delivered by having the highest industry ratio of team members to residents, and by working with outstanding people.  We recruit the best against a defined set of KYN values, we support them with the best training, and we collaborate with the best leaders in their field.”   

With more than ten years in senior positions in the care industry across both the NHS and private sector, Pereira’s industry qualifications include a Master of Science in Management and Leadership in Health and Social Care at University of Cumbria; PgCert in Diabetes at Ulster University; and a Bachelor of Science in Adult Nursing (RGN) at Polytechnic of Leiria (Portugal).

Caroline Naidoo, Managing Director of KYN said: “KYN has broken away from the traditional care home model, creating a genuinely uplifting and joyful place to call home. We provide a pioneering approach to care built on our values of holistic wellbeing, supported by highly experienced nurses and carers, AI innovation, modern nutrition and world class hospitality.  In everything that we do, we place a high value on the autonomy of our residents and encourage the nurturing and development of meaningful relationships, in and outside of the home.  

“We’re delighted to be opening our second home in the heart of Southwest London under Jordan’s leadership. KYN Hurlingham brings our ethos to life in a desirable and historic setting. We aim to enhance quality of life for our residents so that families and friends can have peace of mind in what can be a uniquely difficult time with fast-changing and complex situations.   

“The vision for KYN came together because so many of our team were dissatisfied with their personal experience when looking for care home options for our families.  Our mission is to create the best care home available where we would want our own parents – our KYN – to live.” 

A qualified nurse, Caroline Naidoo joined KYN in 2019 and brings 30 years’ experience in the care industry, including as Divisional Director South of England at Barchester Healthcare, Chief Operating Officer at Priory Group and Operations Director at Four Seasons Health Care.
