Your Care in Our Hands
The Whitecroft is a 56 bedroom care home situated in Orsett, Essex. This spacious home is converted from a local landmark farmhouse and provides expert care for older people, including those living with dementia.
We strive to create a homely environment at The Whitecroft and we provide all the comforts of good food, good company and friendly staff, in a calm and restful atmosphere. The bedrooms are beautifully furnished with en-suite bathroom facilities and TV. The home also has excellent amenities, including comfortable lounges in which residents can relax and a rear view of the surrounding countryside and fields. In addition we 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. The activities at The Whitecroft are varied and, alongside enjoying themselves, residents can receive a wide range of health and fitness benefits from taking part. In addition, for those who enjoy the outdoors The Whitecroft has a beautiful garden for residents to sit in or potter around doing some gardening. There are hothouse facilities for growing plants and The Whitecroft has been a winner in Runwood’s ‘Blooming Marvellous’ competitions.
We now have a themed tea room at The Whitecroft, 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 The Whitecroft, please see the tab above.
