Residential dementia and residential care home

Welcome to Blackthorns

Protecting and caring, now and always -

  • We are safely welcoming new residents to our home and are enabling garden visits to enjoy quality time together (one nominated person per resident only as per current Government guidelines).
  • In these developing times, rest assured, our teams receive ongoing training to continue to best protect those we care for. Plus, everyone in our home is regularly tested for coronavirus.
  • We’re offering virtual tour and video tours for those wishing to take a look around our home. We’re at the other end of the phone for all enquiries and any questions that you might have about our service.

Your Care in Our Hands

Blackthorns care home is a 58 bed home situated in the rural village of Halstead in North Essex. This spacious, newly refurbished Halstead care home provides expert care for older people, including those living with dementia. Facilities available for the enjoyment of residents and their guests include a café, comfortable and sociable dining area, several beautiful lounges and a lounge diner, a salon, corridor snugs and several courtyard seating and gardening areas.

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 and memorable.  All of the bedrooms are beautifully furnished, with 22 benefitting from 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 activities programme ensures that residents remain stimulated and engaged. Our Wellbeing Lead takes 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.

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.
