Experts in award winning care in Colchester
Tall Trees is a modern, purpose-built care home in a quiet residential area close to the centre of Colchester. 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.
Living at Tall Trees is all about enjoying meaningful activities. That might mean taking part in our group and one-to-one activities, or helping around the home. Meaningful activity is different for each person we care for, so we adapt to each resident.
Our Colchester care home provides a wide range of short term and permanent care for older people. Our team receives the latest training, particularly in the area of dementia care, which gives them invaluable insights.Read more
Every day our colleagues live our values of passionate, caring and teamwork to empower residents to enjoy fulfilling lives.

I believe that making the little moments count is all-important to helping an older person to live a meaningful life. We see the difference it makes and it motivates us to do more. I have a very caring team here at Tall Trees, and each of us, whatever our role, understands that we can make a big difference to residents.Alice BandaHome Manager
