The Haven Residential Home is a registered care home, aiming to provide a high standard of care to our residents, whilst encouraging them to live as independently as possible by receiving care & support consistent with their needs. The Haven is set in approximately one acre of secluded land and is 5 minutes-drive from Colchester town centre. Local amenities include bus stop directly outside, two small local shops and a church; pub and restaurants within walking distance.
We provide care for anyone over the age of 65 male or female, and those suffering from Dementia – OP DE (E), including married couples or partners, who have reached a stage in their lives where they prefer to live in a home where all the support required for daily living is provided. Our caring team of staff provides cooked meals, refreshments, housekeeping and laundry services as well as personal care for our residents.
We have accommodation for 29 residents in single rooms, majority with en-suites. All bedrooms and communal areas are fitted with a nurse-call system and smoke alarm. All bedrooms are fully furnished, but residents are welcome to bring with them items of their own furniture by arrangement.
At The Haven we aim to provide a secure, happy and comfortable home, promoting a high standard of care and understanding of individual’s needs, to offer as much support as required, whilst maintaining respect for privacy at all times, and help maintain personal dignity and independence wherever possible.
The Haven is part of Sohal Healthcare. We at Sohal Healthcare understand that it is a difficult decision to enter residential care accommodation, for both the elderly and their relatives. To move into a community setting after years of independent living is a major change which many people approach with confused feelings and apprehension. In all of our care homes we appreciate this, therefore if you or your relatives are in need of help now, or are planning for the future, we hope we can help in any way and do all we can to ensure the move is as easy and acceptable as possible.
