Our team are well-trained and highly qualified to ensure the best care is given, matched with high levels of enthusiasm for their roles. We believe every single one of our residents should receive the best and most personal care possible, that is why we make sure our facilities are secure, well-resourced and over all luxurious. We believe in promoting independence wherever possible with our residents, providing them with comfort.


“Wickham House is light, bright and extremely homely. Mum came for respite but is now a resident. The environment is stimulating and encourages residents to participate as much or as little as they want. The staff are extremely kind and well-motivated to create a happy environment. Home-cooked meals fresh from scratch are excellent. Overall I am extremely happy with everything that Wickham House has to offer.”
“I always receive a welcome every time I visit my wife. This homely residence is where my wife has spent the last 13 months. It is reassuring for me to know she is well looked after. The manager and staff offer their full attention at all times. A typical day when I visit – A welcome by one of the staff and I enquire about my wife and her whereabouts. She might be having her hair washed and blow dried or she may be joining in with an activity. Lunch is served around 12.30, after which there is a period of rest before further activities, and then afternoon tea is served. I then say goodbye for now. God bless everyone.”

History Of Cathena Health Care

Cathena Health Care has been in operation as a Care Home since 1995. We have qualified senior team, who are passionate about providing care for all the residents within our Homes, with compassion and dignity. In 1999, as part of our expansion, we acquired Quenby Rest Home in Tendering, Colchester. This has given us the opportunity to provide even more care to those who need it. 

Cathena Health Care in 1999 also opened a Domiciliary Care operation, due to a close relative being given care by another provider that was so shocking it forced us to do something about it and open a company that followed our values of dignity and independence.

In 2014, Cathena Health Care purchased two more Homes from Anchor, in Suffolk. Today, we look after many ederly people and those who are in need of extra care and support. We strive to make sure everyone’s experience with us is the best and encourage personal independence for our residents.
