Boars Tye Residential Home

Boars Tye is a residential care home specialising in care for those with and without Dementia, including Palliative care, in the village of Silver End, between Braintree and Witham, Essex.

We understand that the decision to move into a care home can be very difficult for everyone concerned and we will try to help you with the complex choices that you will be making. Boars Tye provides residential care within a homely environment for those with and without Dementia. Providing good home cooking, from fresh ingredients, is a priority and meals can either be enjoyed together or, if you so wish, in your own room. During the afternoons many activities are organised, which we hope will satisfy the variety of interests that people have..

Our care home should feel like a real home to each and every person living at Boars Tye. This goes beyond that which is required by the regulations which relate to residential care, namely:

  • The Health and Social Care Act 2008
  • The Health and Social Care Act (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2010.
  • The Essential standards of quality and safety.
  • Care Quality Commission (Registration) Regulations 2009

With this legal framework in mind we have drawn up a Charter of Rights for those people who choose to live at our care home. However our ethos for caring for the elderly goes beyond that which can be required by legislation.

We like to work closely with the relatives of those in our care, always being prepared to listen to their concerns and suggestions. Protection of vulnerable adults is one of our highest priorities and this is viewed as part of our ‘duty of care’ and not just a ‘human right’.
