Manor Lodge

Welcome to Manor Lodge

Manor Lodge is an ‘outstanding’-rated and purpose-built care home in Chelmsford, Essex that delivers permanent and respite nursing, residential and dementia care.

When a new resident joins us, we get to know them extremely well so that we can create care and lifestyle plans that are personalised to their needs, wishes and preferences. Our home has some fantastic facilities for residents to use whenever they wish, from a café to a cinema, a library to an activity room, a hair salon and a little shop.

We also have an in-house physiotherapy gym. Through a combination of nursing care and support from our physiotherapist, we have helped to transform many residents’ lives – enabling them to regain their mobility and independence. 

We pride ourselves on the transparency of our care quality and fee information - ensuring you can trust us to care from that very first step.

What others have to say

Here are just some of the comments we’ve received from family, friends and residents at Manor Lodge care home.

The staff have such a challenging job and they are so skillful, it’s an education for anybody to go and watch them at work. I sit and watch when I visit. Recently, two residents were having a disagreement, they were both talking nonsense and getting nowhere. Two members of staff went and joined them on their table, listened carefully and diffused the situation so beautifully, they made them both feel heard and understood. They are so patient and open with residents and families alike, not at all secretive or devisive. I feel privileged to spend time with them sometimes.

Relative of a resident, March 2024

The home is always clean and tidy, very well-presented… a family member commented recently that it's the nicest care home she has ever visisted, and she used to be a nurse. I live far away from the home and am unable to visit as often as I would like, but the team leader makes a point of contacting me on a regular basis to keep me updated on how my loved one is doing, and not only when there is an issue of some kind. I'm impressed with the professionalism and sensitivity of the home, particularly the way the staff have adapted practice to meet the needs of my loved one.

Relative of a resident, March 2024

The staff are very caring, and everybody does their job with a smile on their face. I am there a lot and I interract with the staff a lot, they always involve me in whatever is going on. They don't just provide the basic care, they spend time with my loved one; they speak with her very personably, they touch her a lot and try to find ways of involving her... they encourage her to get involved with the actvities, which cater for all kinds of different capabilities. Just excellent care!

Relative of a resident, March 2024

We want to say a massive thank you to everyone at Manor Lodge who organised such a fantastic celebration for Mum's 100th birthday. Thanks to everyone on St Clare for making Mum feel so special. We had a fantastic family occasion.

Daughter of a resident, March 2024

We are very grateful for all of the care and attention to mum given by the staff in Manor Lodge and would have no hesitancy in recommending the care home to others. The activities team have gone above and beyond in including mum in some of the music events within her room.
