The Firs is an independent care home and day-care centre providing exceptional levels of care for younger adults (18-65) with learning difficulties and physical disabilities. In the heart of the Essex countryside, our extensively renovated eight-bedroomed property sits in an acre of grounds and is easily accessible from the coastal areas surrounding Clacton-on-Sea and the main town of Colchester.
Our family-oriented living space offers purpose-built accommodation for eight residents, lots of recreational and ‘quiet’ areas and access to a wide range of learning, therapeutic and leisure facilities such as a petting farm, sensory garden, growing area, ball pool, spa and sensory room.
Our aim is to encourage choice and independence, ensuring every single person in our care is able to fulfil their potential and get the most out of life.
The Firs is owned and managed privately by the Kadar family, providing dedicated care for younger adults aged 18-65 with a wide range of learning and physical disabilities.
Mr Kemal Kadar is the second-generation family member to run The Firs and has spent a working lifetime managing care homes and gaining extensive qualifications and experience. Wife Sanaz, a business graduate has joined The Firs team more recently, bringing her own vision for this remarkable house and allowing Kemal the time to take a more practical approach in the growth of facilities and constant renovation of the eight bed-roomed property, facilities and extensive grounds.
