At Trusted Care we understand that, like any significant life event, choosing the right residential care home is essential in order to offer improved quality of life.

Our easy-to-use directory brings you the information you need in order to find the best residential care home in Essex to meet your unique set of criteria.

Each Essex residential care home listed in our directory has its own unique profile, where you can see details of their specialisms and facilities, a map, a gallery and a link to their latest report from the CQC (Care Quality Commission), England’s independent health and social care regulator.

In addition, some of our Essex care homes have been reviewed by people with first-hand experience of the home, either as a service user or a loved one. Reviewed care homes have been given a star rating which is derived from scores over ten categories, including helpfulness, independence and cleanliness.

At Trusted Care, we have made it as easy as possible for you to find a residential care home in Essex that fulfils your unique set of criteria. If, however, you would like help finding a home that feels right for you or a loved one, please get in touch.
