Tall Trees

Welcome to Tall Trees

Tall Trees is a modern, purpose-built care home in a quiet residential area close to the centre of Colchester, Essex. Our large team provides personalised nursing and dementia care on a short term (respite) or permanent basis. We also offer compassionate end of life care.

At the heart of the dementia care we provide is a deep understanding of the individual. All of our team receive advanced dementia training, which enables them to experience first-hand what it may be like to live with dementia.

Tall Trees also has a dementia champion who coaches and advises colleagues on best practice dementia care. As a result, colleagues are confident and focused on delivering highly personalised care and meeting each person’s unmet needs in order to ease any anxiety they feel, and make every interaction meaningful for them.

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 Tall Trees care home.

They deal with every aspect of my mums’ life. I trust them to do what I would do, whether I'm there or not. They have kept them safe with cleanliness and health policies. They've been strict with visiting but in line with Covid rules, they've followed them to a tee and put other practices in place to see relatives. They are kind and supportive.

Relative of a resident, April 2021

Communication is good and helped her settle in and gave me guidance in what she needs and general all-round care. They are in regular contact with me about anything.

Relative of a resident, April 2021

They know me by my name, and I always thank them. They all speak to you when you go in and the manager always welcomes you. They’re really friendly and they have the patient's welfare at heart.

Relative of a resident, April 2021

They’re really kind, caring and helpful not only to the residents but they go the extra mile. They're lovely, they keep me informed and check with me with everything to do with my relative. We're kept up to date and they do Skype calls so I can see my mum and see how she is. The manager always speaks and knows everyone’s name. They are just like a big family, they are lovely and really good at what they do.

Relative of a resident, April 2021

She always looks and smells lovely. She has to have two people to clean her and lift her they work really hard to keep her looking and smelling lovely. They have to do it in a manner in which to not irritate my mum and they do so singing and chat to her whilst they do this.
