About Us


A Special Bath FacilityWe are Anne & Andrew Stern. Our home opened in 1995 as one of the area's highest quality Residential Care Homes. It was extended in 1997 and supports 30 residents. We look after elderly residents of either gender who do not require nursing care. We typically have 25 female and 5 male residents at any time, all aged 70 or above. Presently we have24ladies and6 gentlemen.

We took over ownership in March 2000 and along with our Manager Jinny Prodger, aim to run Catherine Miller House as the best care home in Essex. To provide this a dedicated and caring team of staff has been created, and a constant re-appraisal of the changing needs of individual residents is made. Our staff attend regular training courses to ensure their knowledge of care of the elderly is extended and updated. 


We care for persons requiring regular assistance or supervision throughout the day and nights, ensuring their personal needs are fully met. The home accepts residents with a range of disabilities. These include diabetes, mild dementia (without challenging behaviour). We also have residents who are partially sighted or blind. Our home however remains homely in construction and thus we do not have special blind aids around the home.
