Derham House Care Home in Upminster
Situated in beautifully maintained grounds in the outskirts of Upminster, Derham House has many natural advantages: plenty of local amenities yet within easy reach of London, Lakeside Shopping Centre and the beaches at Southend on Sea. At Derham House, we provide a range of accommodation and services for older people in need of support, from respite care to 24-hour nursing care and residential care.
We also provide specialist support for individuals living with dementia in our bespoke Memory Lane Community, where care is focused on independence, dignity and choice, with a person centred approach. We have also invested in a 'Magic Table' for our home, an interactive light projector designed to support people living with dementia through mentally and physically stimulating games.
We think you'll find we're ideally suited to meet your needs. Why not arrange a visit and see for yourself!

Types of care
The care we provide is delivered in a way that promotes independence for those who live in our home. Where possible, it is important that residents are encouraged to perform daily tasks independently or with minor support. Our services are devised with individualised treatment in mind for each person, so getting to know everyone and understanding their needs is imperative to delivering bespoke, person-centred care.Read more
