Manorcourt Homecare have been successfully providing quality care services across Essex, Suffolk, Norfolk and Cambridgeshire since 1999. As part of the Healthcare Homes Group, we can also assist with your pathway to residential and nursing care via one of our 37 care homes.
We provide care services in the local community. Services include personal care, medication, shopping, domestics, support visits to include learning disabilities. We are also trained in Peg feeds, Stoma, Parkinson’s, End of Life and Dementia. We are able to make companionship calls, such as taking you to an appointment.
We cover the following areas: Debden, Loughton, Buckhurst Hill, Epping, Theydon Bois, Coopersale, North Weald and surrounding areas.
We are based in Honey Tree Court which is an extra care scheme owned by Places for People that was built in 1995. The scheme provides self-contained 24 hour supported independent living for 40 properties.
Properties can be occupied individually or as couples. Manorcourt Homecare provide a 24 hour support team. Individually tailor made care packages are also available to support this independent promoted living in a dignified and confidential way. A daily meal service is available 365 days of the year.
Each one of the 1-bedroom properties has a kitchen, living room and bath/wet room. Each room is fitted with an emergency alarm system and personal alarms are also available to wear. There is a communal garden area, a smaller quiet lounge area, a laundry room and an aided bathroom on each floor of the three-storey building. There is lift access to each floor.
Whether you require assistance on a regular or temporary basis, our flexible range of services means that we can provide as little or as much support as is needed, for as long as required.
Our team are fully trained and are DBS checked. A robust training programme is followed which allows carers the opportunity to gain specialist qualifications. Specialist training qualifications include dementia, stoma care, Parkinson’s, Peg feed and end of life.
