A care home exclusively for the Armed Forces community.

Situated on the edge of Southam, a small market town in the heart of the Warwickshire countryside, Galanos House is set within beautiful grounds, designed by the residents, including a memorial garden and a new bowling green. The residents’ shared experiences in the Armed Forces create a truly unique and supportive community, where everyone looks out for one another.   

For more information about Galanos House or to arrange a visit, please call  01926 812 185 or send an email and a member of our team will be in touch.


Welcome from Jo-Anne

“At Galanos House, we recognise the importance of shared experiences. It’s where our residents can form special bonds and make new like-minded friends. My team and I are privileged to look after those who have given so much to our country and are very proud that our residents feel so at home here.” 

“We’re pleased to be able to offer both nursing and residential care in the main home and support for people living with dementia in Poppy Lodge.” 

“The social side to life is really important and our Wellbeing Team makes sure that there’s always lots to enjoy and look forward to. The Community Hub with its café is a great place to meet up with friends and family over coffee and a slice of cake.”

Jo-Anne Wilson MBE, Galanos House Manager
