Lottie's guide to care in Essex

  • Overview
  • Activities

Welcome to Essex

We offer several types of care throughout the county of Essex, including residential care homes that will support you with daily tasks like washing and bathing. If your loved one needs regular support from a registered nurse, this is available in a setting such as Manor Lodge Care Home, which has an ‘Outstanding’ CQC rating, the best a home can get.

The cost of care in Essex varies, depending on factors like whether bedrooms are en-suite and the facilities and activities available. Care starts from £1,790 a week at Anisha Grange Care Home, where our favourite facilities include a hair and nail salon, a dedicated therapy room and an on-site café.

Price is also determined by the care type needed. For example, if your loved one is still recovering from an injury or illness and needs short-term convalescent care, or they need around-the-clock support from a registered nurse, such as at Derham House Care Home, this may cost more than standard personal care.

We’re here to help you find the right care home in Essex. That’s why we list homes across the county, including in Colchester, Chelmsford and Saffron Walden. If you need some extra support, get in touch today and let us gently guide you through this journey.
