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”.
