We provide personalised nursing and respite care for older people, including individuals living with Alzheimer's, other types of dementia and mental health support needs. We also offer compassionate end of life care.
At Cherry Orchard, we take a very personal approach to caring for residents – we give each person a say in all decisions about their care and we also involve family members too. Every member of our dedicated team is committed to providing a high standard of care. You’ll find that we all have a very positive, friendly attitude and that this creates a warm, welcoming atmosphere where residents feel settled.
Residents’ rooms are light, airy and spacious, with en-suite toilet and washbasin, stylish furniture, a 24-hour nurse call system and phone and television connections. Some also look out onto our attractive gardens. The home is conveniently arranged on one level, making it easy for wheelchair users to get around.
The home is located in a very close-knit community - everyone who works here is local to Dagenham and most residents have lived around here for many years too. Our shared experiences of living and working in the area make it easy for us to build strong friendships with residents and their families. And we're always available to provide support or a listening ear when it’s needed.
