About Us

The human and compassionate touch of person centred care

Established in 1986, initially mainly for the Italian community, Villa Scalabrini welcomes individuals from all cultures, religions and nationalities to our Roman Catholic care home in Shenley in Hertfordshire.

Beautifully situated within 25 acres of attractive gardens, our accommodation is arranged in ‘village’ living areas with each person enjoying their own comfortable en-suite bedroom, communal lounge, dining room, kitchenette and assisted bathroom.

Source of Inspiration

  • Blessed Scalabrini’s vision and charism to support the emigrants and nurture the Catholic faith in them.
  • The Scalabrini Fathers and their mission to continue and expand the charism to all emigrants, without exception, in this multicultural environment by offering them human and spiritual support.
  • The many Italian emigrants, who have supported and cherished Villa Scalabrini from day one. They have offered part of their life to Villa Scalabrini’s cause and should never be forgotten.
