Cullum Welch Court Residential Care Home

Cullum Welch Court at Morden College is a self-contained residential care home, providing nursing, residential and dementia care. Purpose-built in 1971 and extensively remodelled in 2005, the home is regulated by the Care Quality Commission. The home is split into three ‘households’, each providing a range of communal facilities and single rooms with ensuite facilities in each. With beautiful views of the award-winning College gardens, beneficiaries living at Cullum Welch Court have access to the College facilities outside the home. These include Café 19, the Library, Dining Room, Chapel, Social Club lounge and bar.

In the most recent CQC inspection of the Care Home service in August 2022 it was rated overall as ‘Requires Improvement’.


Welcome To Cullum Welch Court

Cullum Welch Court is a residential nursing home within Morden College, a modern care home with a long-standing tradition of looking after older people. The home provides residential, dementia and nursing care with a generous staffing ratio. It is relaxed, friendly, person-centred, and welcoming to all. Our qualified and trained staff include registered nurses, care workers, a health and wellbeing assistant, housekeepers, caterers, and in-house hairdresser. We retain a chiropodist who visits regularly. Continuity of care is important to us and we directly employ contracted and bank staff. We offer unrestricted visiting and 24-hour pastoral care. Our resident Chaplain offers daily services in our beautiful on-site chapel, and a weekly service in the home. Morden College really is a wonderful place to live.

A Home From Home For Those With Extra Needs

Today the Charity’s core purpose is to provide older people wherever possible with a home for life, to support them as they grow older, and to provide care services, including residential care and residential nursing care, if the need arises. We are a strong community, committed to enabling the older people we support to have the highest quality of life, for the rest of their life.
