Kerrianne Colling

When it comes to delivering exceptional care with love and a deep sense of compassion, the amazing people who form our Cherry Wood Grange team, in Chelmsford, are everything.

Here at Cherry Wood Grange Care Home, we will care for your precious loved one with the same tenderness and kindness shown to our own family members.

Through a reassuring touch of the hand or a light embrace, we provide comfort and a sense of safety day and night, caring for our cherished residents whilst giving gentle encouragement to build confidence and independence wherever possible.

To us, these things are second nature, assisted by our detailed knowledge of each person we care for and born by an intense desire to help, as well as strong caring values.

The depth of our knowledge goes way beyond our training and awareness of each person’s medical and physical needs. Whilst these are crucial elements to ensure we are able to provide good care, it is our detailed understanding of who each special individual is now, who they were, and what hopes and dreams they have for their future that enables us to provide exceptional care.
