St Mary's Court Care Home, Braintree, Essex

St Mary’s Court – part of the local community

It’s the people who make St Mary’s Court so wonderful, from our friendly and welcoming residents, to our dedicated team of care and support staff, and the school children who help us in the garden: we all know we are part of something very special.

A warm welcome for your friends and family

We like to be actively involved in the life of our residents and are always delighted to see friends and family. We pride ourselves on making people feel at home, whether they are an old friend, an energetic great-grandchild, or even the minister and congregation of your church.

We’re privileged to receive regular visits from professional musicians and speakers, a florist, an armchair physiotherapist, poets, dancers, a pet therapist, a carpenter, and many more – and we enjoy entertainment that local school children provide for us too.

We have excellent links with some of our local schools and colleges: we even share our vegetable garden with a primary school so as soon as the first shoots show in spring, the children come over to garden alongside our residents.

We also offer apprenticeships to those attending local secondary schools, before they choose their GCSE options, to help them to decide whether social care is the career path for them.

Older children who attend Braintree Community College bring us their enthusiasm and positivity when they spend time with us, and they tell us they learn a great deal from our residents as well as our team.

Out and about

As part of our activities programme we encourage our residents to get out and about and have our own mini bus which takes our residents to visit local towns, shops, restaurants and other places of interest regularly.

We also hold events which people in the local community are encouraged to attend, such as our summer fete, plus we are actively involved in raising money for local and national charities. In 2016 we raised an amazing amount of money for various causes. Read all about our recent events on our News page.
