Welcome to RG Care

R.G. Care was established in 2006 when Adrienne Bloom RGN and her mother Shirley Shawe took over the management of Sands Lodge a residential care home for those with a mental health and/or learning disability, their first care home in the chain. With the assistance of Mr Tony Bloom the then Company Secretary the company grew in strength and capacity. Swan Care Home was acquired in 2007 being the first Care of the Elderly home as part of the group, and Lifstan Way another residential care home for those with a mental health and/or learning disability was taken over as a struggling home, due to be closed down in 2013 and in desperate need for an injection of tender loving care. Once part of the group it was nurtured and rebuilt to the high standard expected within the company.

All RG Care homes can be found within the Essex area and have their own story to tell, with Sands Lodge being a place for vulnerable adults of no fixed abode back in the 1980’s to Swan being a public house for the local village before becoming a care home.  Lifstan Way was donated to the NHS by a very lucrative business man for use by the local community. All three properties have become registered and recognised by CQC (Care Quality Commission) as Residential Care Home establishments with a “GOOD” overall rating.

We are committed in responding to the changing needs and wishes of the residents within our care.

We support residents in promoting their voice, choice and control within their own home and the wider community.
