We understand that finding suitable care and accommodation for yourself or a loved one can often be difficult, confusing and sometimes upsetting. We realise that in this day and age, people's perception of care for the elderly is tainted by the image of an institutional, impersonal 'old peoples home' or 'nursing home'. As one approaches an older age, such fears can often inhibit the desire to find appropriate help which can be hugely detrimental to both their health and life.
We recognise that during old age, life can become increasingly difficult due to a gradual decline in health, mobility or with the onset of dementia. This can hamper the ability to find services, support or information around homes that can provide appropriate care for their age and can lead them to search for services such as nursing care which may actually be inappropriate for their needs, adding further confusion.
Scimitar Care is different. As providers of outstanding elderly residential care homes in Hertfordshire, Essex, Cambridge, Enfield and London, we opened our first residential care hotel for the elderly in 1973. Our goal then was to help afford a standard of accommodation and level of service to match the expectations of the most discerning resident. Over forty years later our reputation for care and quality is second to none.
