Care homes in the East and South East

We have 12 care homes in the East and South East regions, which provide a range of residential care, dementia care, nursing care, palliative care and respite care.

Our two residential care homes in the East are situated in the heart of Sawston village in Cambridgeshire and Ipswich in the county town of Suffolk. Our remaining care homes are dotted around Essex, Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Kent, including our new residential care home Meadow View which is situated in the heart of Hersden. 

What makes our care homes different

Our care homes in the East and South East regions include all of the usual comforts you’d expect such as warm and welcoming living areas, bright and airy dining rooms and cosy bedrooms which are our resident’s personal space to rest and relax in.

However, we believe it’s the personal touches and the quality of tailored care and support delivered which make them true homes for our residents.

Our staff are carefully chosen for their warm and compassionate nature and we believe that kindness is at the very heart of the care services we provide with our teams focused on delivering quality care and support which would be fit for a member of their own family.

When a resident joins us, together we take the time to build a picture of their life so far so that we can understand who they are as an individual. This enables us to ensure our residents not only receive the care and support they need but that they live happy and fulfilling lives.

All of our care homes in the East and South East regions have dedicated activities people who support our residents to try new experiences and rekindle old past times. Residents are encouraged to continue with the things they love whilst trying new things – giving them the opportunity to create treasured memories in the company of friends and family.

Our care homes are our residents’ homes, so loved ones and friends are welcome to join us at any time – this could be afternoon tea, when we serve freshly-baked cakes, or to enjoy a community event such as a summer BBQ or Christmas carol service.

Living in the East and South East region

From Chigwell’s beautiful outdoor spaces, Chelmsford’s magnificent cathedral, Ilford’s historic houses to the haven port of Harwich, which features Redoubt Fort one of the South Coast most historic landmarks, there are a wealth of places to explore in Essex.

A short drive from the city of Canterbury, Hersden is nestled in the heart of Kent and is a 15-minute drive from Herne Bay, which has two miles of splendid seafront. Elsewhere in Kent, Erith boasts the longest pier on the River Thames and is a very popular angling landmark.

Formed after the Second World War, Hatfield is a small town located in an area historically associated with aircraft design and manufacture. One of its highlights is the grand Hatfield House, which has a historic Jacobean manor, impressive gardens and hosts a range of events, from musical performances to farmers’ markets. Hatfield also features an eighteenth century working watermill, a forest – a National Trust site, as well as a cinema, theatre, a string of eateries and shopping centre The Galleria Outlet.

Meanwhile, our care home in Buckinghamshire is situated in the heart of Milton Keynes. Now registered as a city, Milton Keynes has a collection of theatres, an art gallery and a 30-year strong city orchestra, as well as Bletchley Park – a heritage site encompassing the iconic Second World War code-breaking huts.

Ipswich is a waterfront town with a picturesque marina off the estuary of the River Orwell.  Packed with art galleries, restaurants, there is always plenty to do here.

Sawston is a short drive from the beautiful Cathedral City of Cambridge. As well as the outstanding cathedral, visitors can enjoy the theatre, shopping outlets, restaurants, as well as punting on the River Cam and musical festivals at King’s College Chapel.
