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.
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.
