Life at Southend Care

When Southend was designed, special attention was paid to generous room sizes and spacious corridors, giving our home such a light and airy feel. Ground floor rooms on the sunny South and West sides of the building have access onto their own patios; a feature greatly in demand.  All bedrooms are tastefully furnished and residents are welcome to bring items of furniture and memorabilia to truly make this feel like their home.

Southend Care provides residential, nursing and dementia care for the elderly, on a long and short-term basis. From the outset, our aim has been to gather the best staff team possible and we are proud to deliver standards of care and compassion second to none. From the home's manager, through to the nursing and care professionals, catering team and auxiliary staff, we demand the highest standards and our rigorous appointment and vetting procedures, together with ongoing training, ensures those demands are met. Southend Care's personnel are appointed on the basis of their long-term commitment to the provision of exceptional care.

Medical, dental, optical, physiotherapy and occupational therapy services are arranged by referral.

"I pay weekly visits (or more) to a lady resident who has spent the last 5 years at Southend care. Immobile and medically a difficult case, she requires careful nursing. This she has received consistently throughout her stay. The management and staff have always been helpful, pleasant, and resourceful. Above all they have a very positive, can-do attitude which is a boon not only to the resident but to those who are 'outside' carers." - Janet (Friend of resident)

"Mum has been there over 3 years. The staff are wonderful and they have really made mum feel that she is ‘at home’ (even though she is not able to be at her own home now). Mum has been treated with dignity, complete kindness and respect and helped to make every decision that she can. The food is outstanding and Mum really enjoys it. There are also really enjoyable and fun activities and Mum is really ‘living’ not only being kept safe and well." - Olivia (Mother is a resident)

Cinema

Our Cinema is not simply designed for entertainment. There is strong evidence that reminiscence is a major factor in rehabilitation for dementia sufferers. So, whether it is a classic Humphrey Bogart movie or a home movie, this is a facility which can make a significant difference.

Physical Therapy

Physical Therapy is provided in our impressive therapy room, which has specially designed equipment covering a wide range of needs for the frail and elderly. Physical exercise is also known to have rehabilitation benefits for those suffering from dementia.
