About Us

The Geoghegan Group was established in 1991 by Joanne and Patrick Geoghegan

After successfully establishing the Old Rectory and expanding its capacity to 32 bedrooms the opportunity arose to purchase at the time Boughton Hall in Send. Initially this was a 50 bedded home with poor occupancy and unsatisfactory standards. It was at this time Charles Geoghegan came into the business. He had previously been studying and then working in Hotel Management in London before moving to gain experience in the nursing home sector by working for corporate nursing home chains. Following this he left to join the family business, turning Boughton Hall into what is today known as The Old Hall.

Andrew Geoghegan in 2004 left the Army where he had been serving as an officer within the Royal Artillery and came to join the family business where he took over the role of administration / bookkeeping, before moving to manage The Old Hall and later The Old Rectory.

In April 2014 the Geoghegan Group opened The Clavadel, a new, purpose built nursing home that specialises in short term post-operative care. This concept had been trialled at The Old Rectory and a decision was taken to expand to develop the third home in the group on the Epsom Road in Guildford.

Currently the Geoghegan Group have the three homes, The Old Rectory, The Old Hall and The Clavadel. Mr and Mrs Geoghegan are still involved in the corporate strategy whilst Charles Geoghegan manages the Clavadel with his wife Amy assisting in the managment of The Old Rectory and Heidi Cox, who has worked for the group for 22 years, managing The Old Hall. Andrew Geoghegan continues to manage and oversee the administrative elements of the group.

The Geoghegan Group prides itself on maintaining the standards set out by Mr & Mrs Joanne Geoghegan back in 1991, whilst at the same time being innovative and forward thinking in how best to deliver high standards of personal care. All this is only achievable by the hands on approach and working closely with the excellent team of staff at all three locations
