Essex County Care

Our Homes


Scarletts is privately owned, our 50 bed residential care home located in the heart of Colchester. Scarletts currently caters for residential and dementia care. Situated in a private area, Scarletts has gardens that are teeming with wildlife that residents regularly enjoy viewing.

The entire building is purpose built for maximum ease of access and comfort for all our residents. Scarletts staff are all highly trained with exceptional teamwork with their primary focus being the well being and comfort of the elderly.

Located over 2 floors, Scarletts has a very calm and quiet environment. Regular day trips are arranged, many in conjunction with other homes to the nearby sea-side.

The gardens at Scarletts also seem to attract a variety of wildlife as badgers and even the odd deer are known to frequent.
