Camellia House Care Home in Ware
We are planning the re-development of Camellia House Care Home as the facilities and environment at the home are not aligned to the standards we expect for our residents and staff who care for them. Due to the significant work needed we are sorry to say that we are not able to do this whilst residents are living in the home, so have made the difficult decision to close the home whilst we do this. We currently do not know how long the works will take to complete and will update you as soon as we do.
If you are looking for care in the surrounding area, please contact one of our sister homes below:
Camellia House Care Home, in Ware, Hertfordshire, is centrally located near to all the area’s amenities, including relaxing river walks, shops, and the train station. You’ll find us near to Chadwell Springs Golf Club, south of the River Lea. With 48 bedrooms offering residential and nursing care, we think carefully about the type of room each resident needs.
Our bedrooms are set across two floors, and on the ground floor you’ll find a television lounge, quiet lounge and spacious conservatory, meaning peace and tranquillity is never far away. All furnishings and decor throughout the home are of an exceptionally high standard. We also have half an acre of beautiful gardens with an aviary and fish pond.
We care for the residents like our own family members, and we do it from the heart. It’s almost like a sixth sense: people who are always on hand to help, but with enough empathy to know when to leave you be; people who don’t have favourites, and who are always busy creating the little moments of kindness that make a real difference to life here.
Activities vary each week: from cake baking and cocktail evenings, to bowls club and shopping trips. And everything’s flexible – if it’s sunny we try and get outside, so everyone can appreciate the best of the day. We’ve built excellent links to the community, allowing residents to continue their lives outside the home with ease. Every month we have an organised outing for the residents which could be anything from a pub lunch to a visit to the local donkey sanctuary where we sponsor one of the donkeys. There’s a monthly entertainer who comes into the home too.
Home cooked food using fresh produce is served on a daily basis and special dietary requirements can always be catered for. Of course, when, where and who you eat with is entirely up to you – be it your room, the dining room or the conservatory. Friends and family can join you as often as you’d like (at a small charge) and our extras menu gives you the option to order snacks at any time of the day.
Types of care
Striving for the highest possible quality care at our home is at the centre of everything we do, and helping residents to maintain their independence, dignity and individuality for as long as possible is an important goal for all who work here. Personal needs and desires are always taken into consideration, so that we can deliver the best quality bespoke care to everyone we support.
