Nursing Homes in Colchester

Do you need to find nursing care for a family member in Colchester?

TrustedCare.co.uk is an online directory of care services, making it easy for you to short-list nursing homes in Colchester which meet your requirements. TrustedCare also operates a free, help and advice service; our Advisers can support you with information on nursing homes, including the cost of care.

TrustedCare only shares information on Care Quality Commission (CQC), approved nursing homes in Colchester. All nursing homes are subject to regular inspections, the Inspector is looking for evidence that the service is: safe, effective, caring, responsive to people’s needs and well-led. Based on the evidence collected the home is given a rating from inadequate to outstanding. If a service is found to be inadequate, then it is required to make service level changes within a strict time frame or else face closure.

If you have been awarded Continuing Healthcare Funding (CHC) only nursing homes are able to accept this funding type. The main difference between a nursing home & a care home is that nursing home's have registered Nurses on-site 24/7. If you have temporary nursing needs after an operation/illness it may be appropriate for you to undergo respite care in a nursing home. Respite care is offered by all homes providing they have a vacancy & is normally a minimum of a 2-week stay. With regards to dementia care, most nursing homes advise that their suitability to support is based on assessment.

If you would like support in your search for nursing care in Colchester then please ring, email or start an online chat. Our Advisers will take your requirements for care and seek out nursing homes that can meet these.
