Valentine House is a residential care home in Silver End, a small village in Essex, between Braintree and Witham. The Home is a large care facility able to accommodate up to 50 residents, including special support for those living with Dementia. The home underwent a large-scale renovation recently and benefits from spacious bedrooms with en-suite facilities. Valentine House has been rated as ‘Good’ by the Care Quality Commission with an ‘Outstanding’ line in the Responsive category.

Valentine House benefits from a beautiful private garden with modern patios, and a large grassy area backing onto the home’s private carpark which our residents loved ones can use at their leisure. The gardens are used to full effect throughout the Summer months with meals being served in the garden so our residents can enjoy the sunshine and warmth with regular barbeques, birthday celebrations and activities.

The home features a number of communal areas including the lounge, a well presented dining room, a public house style area, and quiet spaces for our residents relaxation. Valentine House also has an in-house salon where residents can book hairdressing and nail care appointments on a regular basis. All floors can be accessed via lift to ensure mobility is not an issue for any of our residents.

Silver End is a quaint area, with a number of local amenities just across the road from the homes front door, allowing our residents the freedom to explore the local area.  The home is lucky enough to be directly next to the beautiful memorial garden, and a short walk from the nearby Church. Valentine House is situated directly at the heart of the village with a row of shops, and a doctors surgery directly opposite the homes entrance.

When asked about the care provided at Valentine House, the home’s manager said:
I think the three words that capture the essence of Valentine House are; Home, Caring and Family. We understand that we can’t replace home… but that will never stop us trying”.

  • Valentine House is a Care Home for the Elderly, the home is also able to provide care for those with mild dementia.

Staff are friendly and polite. I enjoy facilities such as the garden as it is well kept. Really enjoy the baking we do every other week.

Dining is a hugely important factor in many lives, it is more than simply sustenance. Culturally, both food and dining are at the core of our most joyous experiences in life; weddings, festivals, birthdays and holidays to name just a few.

We encourage our residents to invite their loved ones into the home for lunch, dinner and even breakfast so that meal times offer the same opportunities for socialising as they would’ve done throughout each individual’s life.

What is unique about the dining experience we offer here is ‘choice’, which extends beyond simply WHAT you wish to eat, it includes WHERE, WHEN and WHO WITH. Not only do our residents have a superb choice of meals each day but they have the freedom to eat them wherever they like, whenever they like, and with whomever they choose.

We often incorporate food into our activities, providing buffets at parties and BBQs during summer garden parties. We have even hosted ‘Come dine with me’ style evenings in which favourite meals are pitted against one another, diners then voting for their favourite.

Our catering staff are highly skilled and in addition to their knowledge within hospitality they are subject to our programme of care related training, this gives them a broad understanding of the often complex needs of our residents. Our dining team cater for a diverse range of dietary requirements and have experience in tailoring menus to suit every individual’s specific needs.



Regular activities include flower arranging, art and craft sessions, quiz nights and tea parties. As well as fun events in the home, entertainers often come and visit us too. We have recently been visited by the Salvation Army, musicians and local drama students.

As you would expect, special holidays are incorporated into our activity calendar and birthdays are always celebrated with a party and a big slice of cake!

We invite our residents to join in with choosing and planning activities and encourage those moving in with us to continue with their current hobbies and interests.
