Care Homes in Braintree

Finding a residential care home in Braintree that meets all of your needs can be an arduous task.

TrustedCare was created to take some of the stress out of hunting for a care home; our unique online directory of residential care homes in your area provides you with the information you need to make the best choice for you or someone you love. At TrustedCare, we understand that every individual has their own set of requirements; fulfilling these requirements is essential in order for a residential care home to feel like home and help improve quality of life.

Every registered care home in our directory is registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC), England’s independent health and social care regulator. You will find a link to a home’s latest CQC report on their profile, where you will also find a range of information, including a gallery, lists of specialisms and facilities, and a map.

Currently, the cost of residential care in Braintree averages £1051 per week. However, the cost of care can vary greatly between care homes so we advise getting in touch to find out indicative weekly fees. If you have savings or assets over £23,250 it is likely that you will be required to privately fund your care costs. Whereas if your savings/assets fall under £23,250 then you will likely be eligible for some funding support from your Local Authority.

Most care homes in Braintree are able to provide respite care providing they have a bed available, some home's are able to offer pre-bookable respite stays. To find out which home's in Braintree offer dementia care simply click on their profile, those offering dementia care will state this in the 'Care Specialisms' box. All the services listed below are care homes, meaning they offer 24/7 residential care but do not have nurses on site. To view information on nursing homes in Braintree please see here.
