Our Branch

At Manorcourt Care in Hornchurch (part of the Healthcare Homes Group) we provide care and support services to the following people living in the local community.

These services are registered with the Care Quality Commission:

  • Adults and older people
  • People with dementia
  • People who are terminally ill
  • People with a sensory impairment
  • People with a learning disability
  • People with mental health problems
  • People with brain injury

Some people prefer to live in the comfort of their own home but due to an illness, chronic condition or advancing age, this at times is difficult without some support. At Manorcourt Care we listen to what you have to say and provide a bespoke service for you.

Our care staff are trained to the highest standards using our internal training programme. Care workers are chosen not only for their skills but for their warmth, friendliness and caring attitude. Carers provide professional care that respects the rights and dignity of each individual.

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.
