Silversprings is a beautiful, modern luxury care home in Thorrington, set in stunning surroundings near Colchester in Essex.

Silversprings care home delivers a range of quality care for older people, including residential and nursing care. We also offer short respite stays to give family carers some well-deserved time off.

Staff in our care home are specialists in caring for older people with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia and even undertake special experiential training to gain a greater understanding of what life is like for people living with the condition. Their empathy and commitment mean that Silversprings has developed an impressive reputation for the care it provides.

Change your view of care homes

As soon as you lay eyes on Silversprings you'll see that it's more like a luxury hotel than a care home. We’ve a grand reception area, cosy and beautifully decorated lounges and seating areas where residents can relax, chat with friends and family, or take part in the day’s activities. Residents’ rooms are beautifully furnished and have ensuite facilities. Residents are welcome to bring their own pieces of furniture or treasured possessions to help them feel at home. A number of the ground floor rooms even have their own patio area – perfect for a few pot plants or a table and chairs.

And there’s no missing our wonderful secure gardens – they’re a real feature of life here. There are many different areas to explore, including a sensory garden and nature walks. We’ve plenty of wildlife too: residents love feeding the ducks and doves.

Taking part

We get to know residents so well that they come to feel like members of our own family. As well as helping them to feel relaxed and cared for, understanding their life stories, interests, likes and dislikes mean that we can create a care plan that’s specifically designed for each resident. We also plan activities and trips – even our menus – around residents’ likes and dislikes. It’s how we make residents’ everyday lives more fun and rewarding.

Helping residents to keep active and independent is central to the care we provide. When residents are involved in care home life, they are happier and feel more at home. Whether they fancy baking some goodies for everyone to enjoy for afternoon tea, watering the plants around the home, or laying the table for dinner, their help is always welcomed.

We have a full time activities coordinator whose job it is to plan the week's activities, such as quizzes, crafts, bingo and gentle exercise to music. Professional entertainers frequently visit to sing and perform or even get our residents to show off their performing talents. What's more, with Thorrington being so close to the seaside, you’ll often find us heading off in the minibus to Clacton or Frinton in the summer months for some sea air and an ice cream.

Responsibility to care

Of course we have strong ties with local healthcare professionals near Thorrington, and a GP, optician, chiropodist and even a reflexologist visit us regularly to keep residents fit and healthy and give them a spot of pampering. We also work hard to build relationships with local family carers. We understand the challenges of caring for an older loved one, particularly if they’re living with dementia. That’s why we offer information, support and advice to help make the job easier.

We look forward to meeting you

If you’re looking for a care home in Thorrington for a loved one, you’re sure to have lots of questions. We’d love to have the chance to show you around Silversprings and answer any questions you have. Come and visit us and discover for yourself the care, attention and imagination that make our home so special.
