Residential care, nursing care and dementia care, specialising in the Montessori for ageing and dementia care approach.
At Foxburrow Grange
Foxburrow Grange provides residential, nursing and dementia care. This extends to people needing nursing care ranging from those with dementia, including early onset Alzheimer's, to a wide range of health conditions, such as diabetes, epilepsy, stoma care, stroke, heart conditions, Parkinson’s, Huntington’s disease, Percutaneous Endoscopic Gastrostomy and palliative care.
At Foxburrow Grange we use the Montessori approach towards caring for the many types of dementia. By providing individualised care, we support our residents so they are able to get the most from each day. We have created a special environment that has been prepared to enable individuals to do as much for themselves as possible, with meaningful routines, and activities.
On the ground floor are 32 bedrooms for residents with dementia, with a further 37 rooms on the first floor for people in need of nursing and/or dementia care. Every room has an en suite wet room, and all rooms come fully furnished. Residents are more than welcome to bring furniture to make it more homely.
As well as providing exceptional care services, we are also a community hub – we welcome you, your friends and families, voluntary organisation and schools with open arms. A well-being co-ordinator is responsible for a varied programme of activities across the home. We also have in-house catering, housekeeping, maintenance and admin teams to complement our staffing.

We are disappointed to have received an ‘Inadequate’ rating from the Care Quality Commission following an inspection on 13th, 14th and 15th March 2023 at Foxburrow Grange Nursing Home in Colchester. Following the inspection, we have taken and implemented immediate action to address the areas of concerns raised. All actions are now complete and we have advised the Care Quality Commission of our action plan. We look forward to a re inspection at the earliest opportunity.
We will continue to deliver safe and good quality care within the home. This is our priority.
