Types of care
Abbcross and Upminster Nursing Homes have nurses on duty 24 hours a day to assist and support you or a loved one.
Our range of long and short-term care services includes; nursing, dementia, residential, respite, access to private physiotherapy, end of life, recovery from surgery and primary carer holiday cover.
Both Abbcross Nursing Home and
Upminster Nursing Home have beautiful
gardens. As part of our service
improvement the gardens in both homes
have been designed by a dementia
specialist to ensure the gardens are
accessible to all. Features include
seasonal planting, ponds – and chickens!
Residents are provided with an excellent range of activities. Although residents do not have to take part, we try to encourage everyone to participate. Activities include craftmaking classes, such as making Christmas cards and art pieces. Residents’ craft work is hung proudly around our homes.
Freshly prepared food
We do not buy pre-prepared food, as
many residential homes do. Our food
is cooked in-house, which means we
can offer a varied menu and suit it to
residents' dietary requests. We also
offer a seasonal menu. As part of the activities programme residents will take the opportunity to bake cakes and enjoy them over afternoon tea.
Our rooms are freshly decorated, well
maintained and kept warm, clean and
cosy. Each room features a hospital-style
bed, but feels more like a homely
bedroom. Residents are encouraged to
bring in their personal items; curtains,
photos and bed linen. A number of our rooms in our Upminster home have beautiful views and access on to the garden.
When the weather allows we hold BBQs in the gardens of both homes, which are attended by residents, friends and families and by our staffing team. We also have entertainers visit the homes; wonderful singers who know all the classics – a good opportunity for residents to do some dancing or have a sing-a-long!
Fun days out
Both Abbcross Nursing Home and
Upminster Nursing Home run a shared
minibus, which can be used to take
residents on a trip out. We do look for families to support these trips to help ensure their loved ones have a great time.
