About St Dominics

St Dominics is a privately owned Residential Care Home situated in Kelvedon, Essex, with excellent rail and road links.

The Home is adjacent to the local Catholic Church. Churches of other denominations are within walking distance.

Following our latest unannounced inspection by our governing body, the Care Quality Commission (CQC) on 24 November 2016 we were assessed as Good overall.  The subsequent report was published on 7 January 2017. View our CQC history and latest report via this link. 

We continue to provide an excellent standard of care and the majority of our residents come from recommendations.

We actively promote “My Home Life” which ensures all residents have a voice and choice in the way a home is run.  Our residents also have wonderful Community Volunteers of which Sarah Openshaw is one.  Sarah visits regularly and helps with reminiscence sessions.

We provide a varied activities programme which caters for the residents in residence at that time.  Activities are organised by the Activities Team with the support of our wonderful volunteers who are often made up of young people wanting to go into the healthcare industry to become nurses, doctors, physiotherapists and such like, as well as occasionally, ex-residents' family members and those who are retired but want to keep active and help within the community.  We have introduced afternoon activities for our dementia clientele as well as a weekly Men's Club.

We also promote integration with the local community, encouraging visits from local schools, local churches and young people’s associations, such as the Brownies and Cubs etc.
