Your Care in Our Hands

Blackthorns Care Home is a 58 bed home situated in the rural village of Halstead, North Essex, and next door to The Warrens Day Centre. This spacious home provides expert care for older people, including those living with dementia.

We strive to create a varied and enjoyable environment at Blackthorns, and carers listen carefully to what you would like to do to make the day pleasurable.  All of the bedrooms are beautifully furnished, with en-suite bathroom facilities and we also have a dedicated area for dementia care, designed to enable those we care for to maintain their independence in a safe environment.

We take great pride in our activities, and our activity programme ensures that residents remain stimulated and engaged. Our activity coordinators take into account resident’s hobbies, needs and interests, to ensure that the programme includes and entertains everyone. In addition, Blackthorns has a secure courtyard, in which carers encourage outside activities, for those who love to be outdoors. 

Why Choose Us?

 At Blackthorns , 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 Blackthorns? 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! 

 
 
 

What our clients have to say about us


"
We have been extremely pleased with the level of care which has been given to my grandmother since she came to Blackthorns three months ago. The staff have been very professional at all times and any concerns have been dealt with immediately. We would not hesitate to recommend this care home to other people.
