"My husband has been in this care home for four and a half years. The care that he receives is 100%. He is always clean and tidy. His room is kept immaculate. He has pureed food which he eats and enjoys. The carers and staff are always happy. Anything that I might ask them to do for me and my husband is done with a smile and immediately. What more could I ask for.”

Relative of Resident

“I cannot emphasise how amazing this care home is. Not only was my nan treated with the utmost dignity she was kept so safe, secure and comfortable in her last days. The staff are second to none, they looked after my nan so well, they were polite and caring and had a real genuine desire to make her last days painless and comfortable. The manager was amazing and all of them made sure as a family we were looked after. We felt like we were family in this home and the facilities are wonderful. I will be writing to the manager to personally thank the staff team. Keep up the great work, this is one fabulous nursing home.”

Relative of Resident

“My father has been in this home for a year now and my family and I consider ourselves very lucky to have found this home. The staff are first class and go out of their way to help relatives and patients alike happy and informed. Facilities are amazing and the care of the highest calibre. This home should be used as an example to others.”

Relative of Resident

“Very good, helpful staff. Very caring. Would definitely recommend to anyone.”

Relative of Resident

“I'm so happy that mum is now in the most comfortable homely spacious room being cared for with the dignity and dedication she deserves.

“When mum lost her voice the caring staff were her voice and I cannot thank them enough. No words can express the peace of mind I feel to have not failed her at the last hurdle of mums 95yrs of life thanks to their kindness.”

Sensitive personalised care

Abbot - Essex - Excelcare-8420.jpgAbbot Care Home is a modern, purpose-built home with a kind and caring team that delivers sensitive, person-centred care and support to residents who have a variety needs. 

By really getting to know each person who lives with us, we are able to truly understand them – enabling us to meet not only their health needs but also their wellbeing needs too. We are therefore able to support each resident with personal choice, develop and encourage their independence and provide holistic care which is flexible and tailored to them.

At Abbot, there is always a friendly face to offer compassionate support and companionship as we place great emphasis on spending quality time with each resident, personalising our care, providing comfort and treating everyone with the utmost dignity and respect. 

We are dedicated to creating a stimulating, engaging and extremely inclusive home that encourages positivity, wellbeing and a genuine sense of belonging. We also have an assess to discharge unit in partnership with the local CCG and hospital.

Designed for living well

Abbot - Essex - Excelcare-8281.jpgOur home is spacious, comfortable and attractive, designed with the wellbeing and happiness of those we care for in mind. 

With over 30 years’ experience in designing and building care homes, our family-run company has paid great attention to the environment, ensuring our home is tastefully decorated and beautifully appointed throughout whilst maintaining a warm and homely feel.

Our welcoming communal spaces, which include a cinema room and nine lounge and dining areas are light, airy and provide the perfect place to sit and socialise with friends and visitors or take part in one of the many activities and events on offer.

Our spacious and fully-furnished en-suite rooms provide a welcoming space for the people leave here. They are encouraged to personalise them with their own photographs, ornaments, books and if they wish, small items of furniture so they feel right at home. 

Many of our rooms overlook our gorgeous garden with its wildlife-attracting duck pond or the open parkland next door, making it a perfectly tranquil spot to rest and enjoy nature at its best.

An engaging place to live

Abbot - Essex - Excelcare-8379.jpgThe Abbot philosophy of creating a comfortable home where residents feel they belong also includes providing stimulation, companionship and interest through an ongoing events programme.

In partnership with the people who live here, our Lifestyle Coordinators plan an incredibly rich and varied calendar that draws on our residents’ current and former interests, as well as creating opportunities to try new things. 

As well as card nights and film afternoons, reminiscence sessions, Scrabble tournaments and knitting club, we have arts and crafts sessions, movement to music in our exercise dance club and even karaoke – to great acclaim! 

We also offer inclusive activities for residents who are living with dementia or are nursed in bed, through our interactive sensory therapy sessions.

At Abbot, we place great emphasis on supporting the people who live with us to remain as active and fit as possible, with our light and airy gym and on-site physiotherapist. Complete with a wide range of equipment, residents regularly enjoy keeping fit during our light exercise classes and personalised one-to-one therapy sessions.

We believe remaining an active part of our local community is key to the continued wellbeing of our residents. Our intergenerational programme sees children from local schools visit to share time with residents, playing games, chatting and sometimes even singing or playing music. 

We also love our regular trips out to local attractions as well as visiting entertainers, local churches and welcoming the local community into the home throughout the year for a variety of events and seminars – look out locally for details of our upcoming celebrations! And the undisputed favourite activity in our home? The weekly visits from a Pets as Therapy (PAT) dog.
