Assisted Living & Care For Veterans at RBLI
Homes for veterans
Queen Elizabeth Court provides domiciliary care for people aged over 55 who have served in the Armed Forces, and their spouses. Designed with independence in mind, each 1 or 2 bedroom apartment has its own front door and complete with a lounge, kitchen, en-suite wet room and emergency call facilities.
Situated on the outskirts of Maidstone Queen Elizabeth Court with its on-site restaurant, beautiful gardens and plenty of organised activities present many opportunities to socialise amongst our vibrant and supportive veteran community on Britain’s largest veteran village.
If you would like to speak with us with regards to residency please get in touch.
Thanks to overwhelming support from housebuilder Barratt Developments, RBLI’s existing assisted living accommodation, Queen Elizabeth Court has recently undergone a major expansion. The accommodation, which provides assisted living to military veterans and their families over the age of 55, saw its lounge area significantly extended allowing not only for a greater dining experience for its residents but also a space for more engaging social activities. Playing a vital role in ensuring the independence of our veterans.

Helping veterans to live dignified and independent lives is key to our ethos at RBLI, and this still applies to those in their later years at Queen Elizabeth Court.
It is so important to provide support to those who have served as we take care of those who gave so much for us. Here are just a few of the incredible characters who are proud to call QEC their home:
Peter is a Royal Corps of Transport veteran and is a resident in Queen Elizabeth Court.
“The staff here are wonderful – without them I don’t think I could’ve gotten through it.”
George is a former Royal Marine who moved onto our veteran village when his wife passed away.
“I’m much happier now my daughter knows I’m safe.”
Lynda Smith is the Residential Manager at QEC, having worked there since 2005. Lynda has spent time at every rung of the ladder in her climb up to become the leader of QEC, beginning as a carer, tending to the needs of residents, before becoming a team leader, and more recently the residential manager. This has given Lynda a fantastic understanding of what the residents want and need.
“Our aim is to support our residents to live as independently as possible,” Lynda says. “We provide an excellent service here at Queen Elizabeth Court and we are always aiming to go above and beyond for our residents’ needs.”
