Balkerne Gardens Trust has provided affordable care and accommodation for older people in the Colchester area for over 170 years. Today, it offers a complete pathway of care from sheltered accommodation through to residential and then intensive nursing care in dedicated, attractive, comfortable and well equipped accommodation, situated in beautiful gardens near the historic city centre of Colchester.
Our goal is to provide unrivalled personalised care, tailored to suit the needs of the individual, through our team of dedicated and fully-trained nursing and care staff.
From initial assessment, continued evaluation ensures the best possible care within a warm and friendly environment where privacy, dignity and choice are respected and care and companionship meet.
In providing this wide range of support and service, the Trust depends on the generosity of local people, businesses and volunteers.
