Every person is special and unique. It follows that every person has slightly different needs.

At Rectory Court we offer residential care and short term respite care – maybe to give carers or family members a break or to re-charge your batteries after an operation or hospital stay.

We are determined to be the difference in senior care, both in the luxurious quality of our home and the outstanding care we provide.

It’s all about you. Our personalised care plans are shaped around the needs of each individual we look after – everything from the meals you enjoy to the hobbies you love and your personal routines.

Whether you need simple support with daily activities such as mobility, washing or dressing, or more complex round-the-clock care, our fantastic team, who put the ‘extra’ into ordinary, are always on hand to assist you or offer reassurance and advice to family members.

Our compassionate care team are equipped with new technology which allows them to update daily care records instantly, so they can devote more time to getting to know residents’ personalities, preferences and concerns, as well listening and responding to your or your loved one’s needs.

We like to think we offer something special that illustrates the difference between good care and great care. But don’t just take our word for it. Discover the difference for yourself – come and visit Rectory Court today. We’d love to meet you.

Joined April 2019

My role is to support residents and families who are looking for a care home for their loved one.  This journey usually choice or by necessity is often a difficult one.  I feel very privileged that this is my job as I get a great deal of satisfaction from helping people in any way I can.  I joined the team at Rectory Court in April 2019. Having worked in a similar role for the past four years. Originally I was an Estate Agent before I moved into the care / retirement sector in 2015 and have honestly never looked back.
I am from Wirral in Cheshire where I worked for a corporate estate agent for most of my working life with some time in banking.  In 2015 myself and my husband relocated to Essex due to an opportunity we couldn’t miss, later moving to SE London to be closer to family just before we got married and had our son in 2018.  When I am not in work I like to make the most of quality time with my husband and son.

I’m excited to be part of the team at Rectory Court. I have over 7 years’ experience as an activities organiser in the care sector, it’s a job I love. Prior to this I was running my own business.

I enjoy interacting and chatting with the residents as part of my role and creating stimulating and fun activities that reflect the interests of the residents here.

I have recently taken an NVQ 3 in hairdressing and spend a lot of my spare time cutting and colouring my family and friends' hair.

Head Housekeeper

My working experiences include working in a care home environment, 4 & 5 star hotels and also leisure centres for the past 30 years.

Myself and my highly-experienced team, are really enjoying making sure that very high standards are maintained, so that residents, visitors and staff have a clean, safe, welcoming environment to live in, visit and work.

In my spare time I enjoy reading and writing music, socialising with friends and family and walking my dog Edna.

The Importance Of Meal Times

We wouldn’t call our food restaurant standard because we aim for something more personal. At Cinnamon we believe in delicious, home-cooked food, attentive service and understanding what each resident enjoys. Every meal we serve has to be something we’d be proud to present to our nearest and dearest at a special family gathering.

Our restaurant menu evolves with the changing seasons and tastes of our residents who help to plan each meal by offering our chefs feedback and ideas. From the quality of the fresh, locally sourced ingredients and nutritional balance to the attractive presentation, we’re there to listen and make sure that each meal feels like something special, not an afterthought.

Relax and enjoy yourself in our sociable residents’ dining rooms or take an active part preparing food in our life skill kitchens. Enjoy a healthy snack in the comfort of your en-suite room. Catch up with guests or fellow residents over a tasty treat in our comfortable lounges and cheery cafés. And if you’re hungry later on, there’s always a selection of fruit, snacks and hot and cold drinks to enjoy.
