Cheviot Nursing Home
Our 33 bedded nursing care home, Cheviot Nursing Home, is set in peaceful surroundings in Lexden near the centre of Colchester. It is a large and gracious house, which opened as a nursing home in 1989 and is well equipped to meet the needs of all our residents. All the bedrooms are en-suite, some with French windows leading straight into the lovely garden.
Cheviot provides 24-hour nursing care, and the emphasis is on providing a welcoming, homely environment combined with excellent services.
Our trained catering staff thoughtfully prepare delicious, nutritious, home-cooked meals with fresh, local ingredients, offering a wide choice and balanced diet tailored to individual needs.
Although we provide long term care for most of our residents, Cheviot also offers respite care for short periods. Additionally, our compassionate staff are very experienced at delivering palliative care and pride themselves on providing the highest standards of care and service to individuals at the end of their lives, along with supporting their families.
Cheviot Nursing home is part of the Balkerne Gardens Trust.
Balkerne Gardens Trust offers a complete pathway of support and care, from our Care at Home service, affordable sheltered housing through to residential and nursing care. We also provide respite and palliative care.
Situated in three locations near the historic town centre of Colchester, we have created a warm and friendly environment where privacy, dignity and choice are respected and care and companionship meet.
Our goal is to provide unrivalled individualised support and care, tailored to suit the needs of every person, delivered by a team of dedicated and well-trained nursing, care and support staff in modern, comfortable facilities.
In providing this wide range of services for older people in the Colchester area, we are grateful for the generosity of local people, businesses and volunteers.
