Hargrave House

  • Care Provider Information

    Hargrave House is an original Listed building in three acres dating back to the late 1700s with a purpose built addition and was acquired by Scimitar in the Autumn of 2000. The Care Hotel has 58 ensuite bedrooms, situated 10 minutes from junction 8 off the M11, and was refurbished and opened by Scimitar in January 2001.

    It is situated in the charming picturesque village of Stansted Mountfitchet which dates back to Saxon times. Although the building is large and imposing, it has been structured into two wings, The Hargrave Wing housed by the original building and the Alice Grace wing added later in the 1990s yet still sympathetic and in keeping with the magnificent original.

    It is not easy to describe the wealth of features contained in Hargrave House, so the only way to appreciate the building is by a visit. Suffice it to say that the high ceilings and wood paneling to the halls and stairs were attractive enough to be featured in the Lovejoy antiques television series a few years ago.

    Within the main building is the old hall lounge, with a licensed bar, leading to three separate lounges, the dining rooms and a splendid conservatory. There is ease of access throughout the building which is served by two modern passenger lifts and the Managers office is situated on the ground floor immediately by the entrance hall, centrally sited between the two wings.

My Father-in-Law has been a resident in Hargrave House for 3 years and although initially reluctant to go into a home, my F-i-L is happy, settled and well looked after in a respectful and helpful manner. The home looks after many residents with dementia and helps these individuals with memory games and daily activities suited to the individual's capabilities and hobbies. The staff are very friendly, caring and kind to the residents and make everyone welcome. When looking for a care home, my husband and i visited 15 in total and this home had an open door policy allowing anyone to visit at anytime. The home is lovely in both decor and atmosphere and there are daily activities for the residents as well as entertainment and trips out. The food is also very good with a 3 course lunch with optional sherry /alcohol (in-house bar), as well as the option of cooked breakfasts and an evening meal or snack. The home also puts together a detailed care plan for all the residents, with the help of their family, GP and carers, so that their every physical need, wish and want are catered for, as well as knowing how to communicate best with the residents.
