St Michael's Home's ltd

St Michaels Homes Ltd comprises of two elderly care homes which are adjacent to each other.  Howard Lodge and Dudbrook Hall, nestling in beautiful park-like gardens in Kelvedon Common on the outskirts of Brentwood, Essex, are surrounded by beautiful countryside with abundant wildlife including deer as regular visitors.

We are a family run company, established in 1991 with directors Sheila Watson and her children Claire, Peter and Sean. Sheila trained as a registered nurse and midwife followed by 25 years midwifery, followed by 5 years as a health advisor to the elderly, and obtained a diploma in gerontology. With this experience care of residents comes from the top down, this can be seen by the way residents are cared for by all staff.

Loneliness and feeling a burden in older age is a great and growing scourge of our society. You will not find lonely people in our care homes – you will find support, companionship and strong bonds of friendship.

St Michaels Homes has been awarded on many occasions for its investment into its staff development and commitment. We truly believe that our staff members are our biggest asset and we treat everyone who wishes to work with us the upmost respect and treat them as if they are one of our own family. 

Should you wish to to work with us then please come have a look at our homes and join a great team of people.
