About New Copford Place

Category: Respite care

New Copford Place is a purpose-built residential care home also providing short-term respite care, staffed by a committed and enthusiastic team. Based in the beautiful Essex village of Copford near Colchester.

Respite care for the elderly is designed to provide a temporary haven for older people in order to give their carer a much-needed break. It also gives the person receiving care a chance to socialise in our home, meet and make new friends, enjoy some fresh experiences, and just benefit from being cared for by a compassionate team in a warm environment.

New Copford Place provides flexible living arrangements for our residents. With light, airy private rooms and comfortable communal areas including three lounges and a spacious dining room, you can decide whether you prefer to socialise or relax in your own space.

We take the same approach for both long term and short term residents. We start by understanding the individual needs of each resident. That’s why we create a personalised care plan for each person, so that our dedicated team can ensure everyone’s needs are met and that New Copford Place feels like home.
