Upton Dene is a stunning flagship care home positioned in a residential area alongside the Countess of Chester Hospital in Cheshire.

Three-miles outside the centre of Chester, our care home is a short drive from all the shops, cafés, pubs, library and other attractions the city has to offer.

Our dedicated team provide a range of care and support for residents, including residential care, dementia care, nursing care, palliative care and respite care.

Upton Dene has been designed to have all the luxuries you’d expect, with light and airy lounge and dining areas, which are beautifully decorated and furnished, a cinema room complete with a projector and cinema-style seating and spacious bedrooms with en-suite wet rooms, which provides a warm place for residents to rest and relax.

The care home also has tranquil sensory gardens and a hairdressing salon where residents can enjoy being pampered with beauty treatments.

Pre-bookable respite care

We offer short stays which you can book in advance in our stunning care home, giving someone special a wonderful ‘home from home’ stay and loved ones the chance to take a break of their own.

Bedrooms are beautifully decorated and furnished, although we encourage our residents to bring personal ornaments, pictures and small items of furniture to make their rooms their own.

To ensure we continue to provide the best standards of care and support to our residents, we recruit and train only the best staff.

Whilst they receive a variety of on-going training to ensure their skills remain up-to-date, along with an enhanced DBS check (formerly CRB), it is their dedication to our residents which makes them truly special.


We believe it is important that our residents spend their time as they choose, so we have a dedicated activities person to support them to take part in interesting activities, rekindle old past times and try new things.

We also have a hairdressing salon where residents are able to enjoy being pampered with manicures and hand massages.

Regular activities on offer include everything from baking, light exercise, arts and crafts, knit and natter sessions and live music entertainment.
