Care Homes

CHS is about offering choice and options to older people living in our care homes. Our homes are registered and inspected by the Care Quality Commission, Cambridgeshire County Council and LINk. Our 3 registered care homes offer older people an individual (person-centred) approach and support plan, comfortable accommodation, delicious home-made nutritious food and 24 hour care and attention from an experienced and well-trained care team.                                                                                                                                                                      All of our catering facilities have achieved 5* awards from the Office of Environmental Health Agency.

Alex Wood House was refurbished in 2011 with works to our Day Centre, conservatory, additonal bedrooms and office space.  Vera James House has also recently been refurbished.

The Care Quality Commission, is a national body which regulates care home services, monitors standards and publishes independent reports on the quality of the service provided in Registered Care Homes across the country.
