Meet the Manager Cristiana Posani
Alexander House is so much more than a care home. It is a real home. My mum moved in 2019 and has now lived there very happily for over 18 months. She is very well cared for and really enjoys life … I particularly appreciate always feeling very welcome and included in her care. I’m not treated as ‘a visitor’ but as part of the home community which means I don’t think of Alexander House as an ‘institution’ but as my mum’s home. All the staff have gone the extra mile to pull together during the pandemic and have done everything they can to keep the residents safe. I’m so grateful that my mum has been so well looked after during this difficult time.

Alexander House provides accommodation for up to 20 residents.
It was originally built as a family home in the early part of 20th century in the wealthy residential area of Wimbledon Village. The care home was founded as a result of a donation to the National Free Church Women’s Council in the 1940s and named Alexander House in honour of Lady Alexander, a past president of this Council.
Alexander House became part of Keychange in 2003, and the National Free Church Women’s Council was incorporated into what is today known as Churches Together in England.
An attractive conservatory has been added since the house was originally built, as well as additional bedroom accommodation in a 2-storey wing in the 1960s. In 2009 Alexander House was the subject of major development and refurbishment. Internally, state-of-the-art improvements to assisted bathing facilities and lift access to all areas were the main features.
The garden is the outstanding feature of the home, and many happy hours are spent by residents strolling in the grounds. The garden boasts an impressive Cedar of Lebanon tree, and its own summer house and sensory plant beds.
Wimbledon Common is a very short distance from Alexander House, and Wimbledon Village shops are easily accessible on foot.
