Alexandra House

Your Care in Our Hands

Alexandra House is a 106 bed home situated in its own beautiful grounds not far from the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Harlow. This spacious home provides expert care for older people, including those living with dementia or in need of general nursing.

We strive to create a relaxing environment at Alexandra House, and the home has its own library, reading lounges and relaxation areas. All of the bedrooms are beautifully furnished, with en-suite bathroom facilities and wall mounted flat screen televisions. We also have a dedicated area for dementia care, designed to enable those we care for to maintain their independence in a safe environment.

Our activity programme ensures that residents remain stimulated and engaged, and our activity coordinators take into account resident’s hobbies, needs and interests. Activities Include;

Coffee Mornings

Afternoon Film Sessions

Baking Afternoons

Bingo and Quizzes

In addition, Alexandra House has in-door gardens and two raised flower beds, as well as an aquarium and some birds for those residents who like animals and gardening.

We have a themed tea room at Alexandra House, designed to enable residents, families and friends to meet in a relaxing, old fashioned tea room environment, and enjoy a day out experience without leaving the home. For more information on the Tea Room at Alexandra House, please see the tab above.

Why Choose Us?

At Alexandra House, our aim is to practise ‘person centred’ care for all our residents, and our trained staff are available 24 hours a day to meet your needs.

We understand the value of individuality, so you will be able to personalise your accommodation with special familiar items you may wish to have around you, such as a favourite chair or pictures to go on the wall.

We take pride in our activities programme, and you will have the option to join in organised activities if you wish to do so. Our activity coordinators seek out and listen to residents who may have hobbies or pastimes, in addition to arranging a whole variety of activities and entertainment to stimulate all residents.

Mealtimes are, to many, the highlight of the day and all of our meals are made of fresh produce, prepared by our own chefs and catering teams. We undertake to provide a nutritious and balanced diet around your preferences; we like our residents to have a say in what they eat as they did at home.

Choosing a care home can be an intimidating process, so why not come and visit us at Alexandra House? We wish to understand everything that is important to you, so on your visit we will discuss your needs and how best we can meet them, as well as giving you the opportunity to look around and ask questions. If you are unable to visit, we will arrange for a staff member to call on you at your home or other place of your choosing at your convenience. We hope to see you soon!
