Armchairs stained- could have removable covers for washing. At lunch time too many staff go to lunch at the same time leaving inadequate staffing in the lounge to provide care/support to residents.

My mother has been a resident in Chelmsford nursing home for nearly two years. My sister and I cannot fault the care she receives from All the staff. We are kept informed if any change in her condition, when we visit we are made to feel welcome and part of a large family and we are confident in the knowledge that mum is being treated with the utmost dignity.

I am extremely grateful to Chelmsford nursing home for caring for my husband in such a lovely way. Nothing is to much trouble for them, from the management to the carers. I would recommend this home to anyone. He is spotlessly clean even though he cannot do a thing for himself, and is always very happy. I can now sleep soundly at night knowing he is safe. Thank you everyone at Chelmsford Nursing Home.

Chelmsford Nursing Home

This is a purpose-built facility located in a very pleasant rural location, but easily accessible from the A12 / A130 junction. As you approach the site, you could be excused for mistaking it for a country spa, and the accommodation is excellent. The nursing and care staff are a friendly team, and we feel confident that residents are in extremely good hands. A dedicated activities team ensures that residents enjoy a range of entertainment and events, while the catering staff provide a varied and nutritious choice of meals. The cleanliness of the building and attractiveness of the grounds is a credit to the housekeeping, maintenance and gardening staff. Management is approachable and responsive to requests and suggestions. Having considered a number of care home options, I have no doubt that Chelmsford Nursing Home is a top choice, and am very happy to be entrusting Mum's care to the team. In fact I feel lucky to have secured a place for her here.

Chelmsford Nursing Home

My friend was 85 years old and suffered from Dementia as her only friend of long standing (I am her daughters Godmother) and Daughter of her friend it was left to me to help her as she had put me as next of kin. On leaving Basildon having spent six months in the mental health unit where she had deteriorated rapidly. I was asked to find her a place urgently for palliative care, Chelmsford nursing home was visited by myself and her daughters carers from a brain injury unit in Colchester and agreed this was the ideal place. She was happier in her last weeks of life there than she'd been in the year prior. I personally would love to spend my last weeks there if i needed a home.

My father having just passed away has prompted me to express my thanks and gratitude to all the staff of Chelmsford Nursing Home by highly recommending it to anyone considering it for a loved one to reside in. My father moved into the home with an advanced case of Alzheimer's and was always cared for in a professional way.Not only do I feel that all his needs were met, but that there was a wonderful family atmosphere fostered by the staff. Above all, what I would like to highlight is how genuine was the fondness that all the staff felt for my father in such difficult circumstances.

My dad, who had dementia, was treated with expert loving care and dignity. He was almost always happy and content; the only exception was his frustration at being changed. The staff dealt with his frustration with patience and dignity and made his ordeal as quick and easy as possible. The staff treasured dad and entertained him using their knowledge of his love of singing. They treated him like a family member, and in the end I believe that he thought that they were his family.
