Welcome to Essex

Essex is home to historic towns and beautiful countryside and coastlines. With great transport links across the South East and beyond there’s plenty of benefits to living in Essex later in life.

You’ll find a number of highly-rated Care Quality Commission (CQC) care homes in the local area that provide varying degrees of support such as personal care, medication management and specialist care for older adults with complex healthcare needs.

Residential care homes in Essex promote dignity in care and allow residents to continue to live independently in a home-from-home environment. Nursing care homes have a team of registered nurses providing round the clock support and medical care.

The cost of care homes across Essex varies and this will depend on a number of factors including the type of care required and any unique home requirements. For example a short-term stay in a respite care home for a resident requiring post-operative convalescent care will be less costly than long-term care in a specialist dementia care home.

We have partnered with care providers across the county, including in Colchester, Chelmsford and Saffron Walden.
