Your Care in Our Hands

Frank Foster House is a 80 bed home situated in the leafy village of Theydon Bois. This spacious home provides expert care for older people, including those living with dementia and has been chosen by residents and their families as one of the Top 20 care homes in the East of England.

We strive to create a relaxing environment at Frank Foster House, and all of the bedrooms are beautifully furnished, with en-suite bathroom facilities. The home has excellent amenities and a dedicated area for dementia care, designed to enable those we care for to maintain their independence in a safe environment. We have special sensory areas, with sensory items on the walls to touch, listen and see, including a sea life scene on the first floor.

Our activity programme ensures that residents remain stimulated and engaged and our activity coordinators take into account resident's hobbies, needs and interests. The activities at Frank Foster House are varied and, alongside enjoying themselves, residents can receive a wide range of health and fitness benefits from taking part. In addition, Frank Foster have created a 21st Century room, with a computer for internet surfing and emails together with Wii games. We also have a small Chapel.

What our clients have to say about us:

My father, Richard Browning, passed away last Thursday. For the last 3 years he has been at your Frank Foster Home. 
Cheryl and every single member of staff have been amazing. They all genuinely cared for him with love, compassion, time and made the last few difficult years a joy. 
The standard in the home is exemplary. The food was always enjoyed by my father. The cleanliness was faultless. The staff were always able to help even though they were busy.
We wish the home every success in the future and I will always be happy to talk to prospective families to set their minds at rest.
Congratulations to each and every member of the team.

Susie, Caroline and James
