Brook Meadows Care

Part of Southend Care, Brook Meadows pride themselves on providing an active and social community.

This stunning new home in Southend - built in 2022 - has been designed specifically for those living with dementia. From the large, light and airy reception to the snuggest lounges, there are many communal spaces available for residents to settle into; lounges with dining areas, books and TVs, and designated quiet areas. It's comforting to know that you're coming to a place where you can feel at home.

The team encourage regular visits from family to spend time with their loved ones, just as they would at home.

Every individual has unique qualities and care needs. First, they make sure that staff get to know you and understand what you need. Then, they work with you and your family to make sure that they are supporting you in the right way.

Brook Meadows House Care Home offers peace of mind when it comes to caring for you or your loved one. With specially trained carers and an emphasis on wellness, with their help, you can stay healthy and active wherever possible. They also arrange hairdressing, medical appointments, and other community services on your behalf.

With spacious bedrooms, you can personalise them just how you like them. Bring your favourite belongings from home or change the décor as you please. Every bedroom has a fitted wardrobe and ensuite accessible wet room.

As Dementia specialists, they provide compassionate and person-centred care. They support residents through activities that stimulate their brain and encourage independence through familiar tasks. They understand that every individual has their own story and experience with dementia. Therefore, they take a more personal approach to residents' memory loss care, understanding what level of dementia they're showing and how it's affecting them.
