Valentine House is a residential care home for the elderly and those with dementia situated in Silver End, a small village in Essex, between Braintree and Witham.

At Valentine House, we are able to provide residential care for up to 50 residents, including specialist support for those with dementia. The Home has its own private garden with modern patios as well as large lounges, dining rooms, and quiet areas. The Home also has a dedicated hairdressing salon and lift to all floors. It has been recently refurbished to a high standard and all bedrooms have en-suite facilities. We encourage the friends and families of our residents to visit the Home as often as they wish; plenty of parking space is available.

It is located next to the memorial gardens and only a short walk from the church, Valentine House is perfectly situated in the heart of the village. It is also directly opposite a row of shops and the doctors’ surgery.

“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, there is also a separate wing for residents falling into a Dementia Category.

My mum has been in Valentine House since November and I cannot recommend it enough. I visit her every day and leave her knowing my mum is cared for by all the brilliant caring staff. I also see how kind and caring the staff are to all residents, not just the ones who's relatives visit regularly. They treat each one with the care and dignity they deserve. It's important to know you have chosen the right place for your elderly relatives especially when they are not able to speak up for themselves in some cases and I can certainly say we did. Thank you to you all!

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.
