When it came to designing Croft House, a great deal of thought and care went into its layout and the types of care it would offer its residents. The home is set in stunning, well-maintained gardens and is also situated within walking distance of the main high street of Great Dunmow – which is ideal for those residents to get out and about.
Croft House provides long-term care for the frail elderly, as well as residential, nursing, convalescence and palliative care. It also specialises in caring for people with Parkinson's . Short breaks and respite are also in the home's overall care plan, as is care for residents who have had strokes.
Round the clock care in a safe, comfortable environment for up to six weeks. Perfect for carers who are ill, on holiday or just need a break.
Provides accommodation, meals and personal care for those who find it increasingly difficult to cope at home without assistance.
Care for those recovering from surgery or illness, through a combination of rest appropriate exercise and balanced diet.
We provide respectful pro-active care for residents and relatives in their last days of life. We ensure that their physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs are considered and met.
Expert personal care 24-hours a day in comfortable, homely accommodation with daily activities to stimulate body and mind.
We offer 24-hour personal support to those with a condition that requires frequent specialised, qualified nursing care.
We're always striving to improve our treatments and services so feedback from residents and relatives is very important to us. The results of this help us provide the best care possible.
We are regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). This helps us to identify how we can deliver person-centred care for the people living in Bupa homes.
Our in-house activity co-ordinator plans a selection of activities every single day of the week to suit all tastes and levels of ability, and we welcome friends and relatives to come into the home and join in, too.
We want our residents to make the most of their free time and help them pursue exactly what's needed to make them happy. To that end we not only run a full range of activities designed to stimulate the mind and body (which are also a great way to make new friends at the home), but we're also there to encourage any residents who wish to take up or continue a personal hobby.
Entertainers often visit and perform recitals at our home and residents are encouraged to join in. There is also a mobile library which visits regularly. Residents can visit the river, the local park or the old village and there are also excursions to the seaside, countryside and nearby Eastbourne.
We serve a delicious variety of nutritionally balanced meals three times a day. Each resident's diet is closely and continuously monitored to make sure that they're happy with the choice on the menu and that it also meets any dietary requirements they may have.
We have an open door policy, so you are welcome to pop in to the home at any time. However, we recommend you avoid visiting at main meal times as these can be very busy. If you would like to speak to the home manager when you visit, you can make an appointment by calling us first.
Depending on its size, new residents are welcome to bring furniture to their new room. Many of our residents bring a favourite armchair or pictures and other small belongings to personalise their room.
This depends on availability of rooms in the home, understanding the cost of care and the person moving in receiving a care assessment.Ask us a question
We've taken the time and care to make sure that all 35 bedrooms at Croft House are decorated to a high standard and well-furnished to make all residents feel right at home. Each of the rooms has en-suite bathroom facilities, a remote-controlled television for entertainment and a 24-hour nurse call system, so that all our residents are only a quick call from assistance if they need it.

There’s a lot to figure out when it comes to funding. Pop in for a visit and we will be happy to talk it over.
