Hargrave House Care Home | Stunning care home

Magnificent care home in beautiful grounds

Hargrave House is a stunning listed building set in three acres of beautiful grounds. The building itself dates back to the late 1700s and became part of Scimitar Care group in the Autumn of 2000. Hargrave House has 58 exceptional bedrooms all with ensuite bathrooms. The care home is situated 10 minutes from junction 8 off the M11. The home has been fully refurbished by Scimitar Care. 

The care home is in the picturesque and charming village of Stansted Mountfitchet on the Hertfordshire borders. The building is magnificent and has been structured into two wings. The Hargrave Wing housed by the original building and the Alice Grace wing that was added later in the 1990's and is sympathetic in keeping with original building. The Alice Grace wing has been designed specifically to cater for those requiring dementia care. 

It is not easy to describe the wealth of features contained in Hargrave House, so the only way to appreciate the building is by a visit. The high ceilings, wood paneling to the halls and stairs are exquisite and the home even featured in an episode of TV's Lovejoy a few years ago.
Within the main building is the old hall lounge, with a licensed bar, leading to three separate lounges, the dining rooms and a splendid conservatory. There is ease of access throughout the building which is served by two modern passenger lifts and the Manager's office is situated on the ground floor immediately by the entrance hall, centrally sited between the two wings.

Hargrave House offers different types of Care:

Dementia Care

Residential care is a term used to describe the general care and support provided in a standard elderly care home. It can often be referred to as "personal care" or even "assisted living" and usually involves help with basic needs such as washing, dressing, mobility assistance and so on. This is generally what is required for most of our residents at our Hotels. Often, "residential care homes" are simply referred to as "care homes" where as "nursing homes" are referred to by the Care Quality Commission as "care homes with nursing". 

Respite Care

Providing care for those suffering from the many forms of dementia takes dedicated and skilled staff to be able to manage the many traits of which dementia can effect a person. Even though many families take great joy in providing care to their loved ones so that they can remain at home, the physical, emotional and financial consequences for the family caregiver can be overwhelming without some support, such as respite. Respite provides the much needed temporary break from the often exhausting challenges faced by the family caregiver.
