Don Thomson House Residential Care Home
Overlooking the fields and countryside, our care home is located in a quiet residential area of Dovercourt. The home is in a stunning part of Essex, a short drive from the beach and port.
The home has been a firm fixture of the Harwich community for the last thirty years, first opening the doors in 1989.
A care home for the community
We throw open the doors for a range of celebrations throughout the year, from the annual summer fete with stalls and games galore, the Christmas fayre, complete with Santa’s grotto, and we can’t forget about our scrumptious afternoon teas. The team has even hosted a virtual summer cruise, where residents and guests experienced the traditions and flavours of places all over the world, in the heart of the home. There was a captain’s table, with everyone dressing to the nine’s for a mouth-watering dinner.
For people living in our residential care suites, the home’s community events a real highlight in their social calendar, which for many has got busier since moving into Don Thomson House! And for our residents living with dementia, they are able to experience wonderful activities and events in safe and familiar surroundings.
Inspiring and person-centred activities
No two days at the home are ever the same. Not only do we support residents to stay connected to the community in Harwich, but we deliver group and one-to-one activities based on their individual likes and interests.
Don Thomson House is part of Sanctuary Care. The Sanctuary Care home teams truly believe that families are meant to be just that - families - made up of those we love, so we work together to provide comfortable, safe and happy daily care and you can concentrate on being a family without the worry.
