Marianne Faithfull Moves into Care Home Following Long COVID Effects

Singer Marianne Faithfull has moved into a care home.

Ms Faithfull is living at Denville Hall, north west London, where several other stars including ‘Fawlty Towers’ actor Andrew Sachs and filmmaker Lord Attenborough have previously resided.

The 75-year-old singer has been struggling to recover from the virus, and revealed last year she was still experiencing memory loss and fatigue, while her lungs hadn’t fully recovered, and was hospitalised for three weeks with Covid in April 2020, and in January 2021 she spoke publicly of her concerns that she may never sing again.

She said: “I may not be able to sing ever again. Maybe that’s over. “I would be incredibly upset if that was the case, but, on the other hand, I am 74”.

A spokesman for Ms Faithfull said: “Marianne is staying at Denville Hall while she recovers from the ongoing effects of Covid.”

The care home supports professional actors and others who worked in the entertainment industry.

Denville Halls offers short stays, residential care, nursing care, dementia care and end-of-life care to up to 40 people from the performing arts professions aged 65+.

The care home was rated ‘Good’ by the Care Quality Commission in a report published in February 2022.
