Manorcourt Homecare, the homecare services division of residential care provider Healthcare Homes, which is based at Langham, near Colchester, has relocated its branch previously based in Saffron Walden.

The team has moved into new, larger, premises in Great Chesterford in order to expand and meet the needs of more people living in the area around north-west Essex.

Manorcourt specialises in providing care services for people who wish to remain living in their own homes for as long as possible.

Services include providing personal care routines such as bathing and dressing, domestic tasks such as washing, ironing, cleaning, cooking and shopping, live-in care for short- or long-term periods and respite placements into residential care homes.

Emma Domb, registered manager of the Saffron Walden branch, said: “The demand for home-based care is continuing to grow and so we have taken the decision to relocate from our former site on Hill Street over to Rutland House in Great Chesterford.

“By doing so, it gives us the space to recruit additional care staff so we can continue expanding the reach of our services to even more people around the local area.”

The Saffron Walden branch is currently providing care and bespoke support packages to more than 80 people in the area.

Mike Osborne, managing director of Manorcourt Homecare, added: “Whether you require assistance on a regular or temporary basis, our flexible range of home-based care services means that we can provide as little or as much support as needed, for as long as it is required.

“This relocation to Rutland House means we will be in the best position to be able to expand the services even further, in order to meet the growing demand for at-home, personal care and related support services.”

Healthcare Homes, which was founded in 2005, has 23 residential care homes located throughout East Anglia and registered for more than 1,000 residents.

Its Manorcourt division has 15 homecare branches and two day centres which carry out more than 1.5million visits a year to people requiring home-based support and care services.

In total, the Healthcare Homes group employs more than 2,000 staff across Suffolk, Essex, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire.
