About Us


The Moorings is a registered mental disorder residential nursing care home. We cater for adults who are suffering from Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, dementia and other similar conditions. 

We provide quality nursing care of the highest standard, treating all our residents with dignity and respect.

At the Moorings we offer a secure, homely and comfortable environment so our residents can lead fulfilled lives.
Situated in a leafy suburb of Canvey Island, the Moorings is set in pleasant surroundings, with panoramic views of Canvey Bay.

The Moorings is an all purpose-build nursing home, comprising of 37 bedrooms, of which 35 bedrooms are for single occupancy, some having en-suites. The home extends over two floors, serviced by a resident’s lift. Some of the bedrooms overlook the landscaped garden and others, at the front of the home, overlook Canvey Bay.


The Moorings is tastefully decorated and features TV lounges and several quiet sitting rooms. The residents are able to relax in the lounges or the dining room. 

Each resident‟s room is their own, and they are encouraged to bring photographs, pictures, ornaments and any other personal items to make their room feel like home. All the rooms are fitted with thermostatic radiators, smoke detectors and 24-hour nurse call systems.

The home is attended by experienced hair stylists and qualified chiropodists. There are regular visits from mobile clothing shops. Religious services of different denominations are also available. The home is visited frequently by a charity registered pet dog.

Additional services such as massage, reflexology and physiotherapy can be arranged as well as optican and dental appointments. Respite care is provided to give the carers a short-term break. 

Food and Dining

We recognise the importance of a balanced, nutritious diet. We offer a wide range of dishes on our daily menu. The meals are made using only the finest ingredients and fresh local produce.

Residents can dine in our spacious dining room or in their own rooms. Our cooks are trained to cater for all kinds of special dietary needs.

Social Activities

At Moorings we encourage residents to partake in a variety of activities. We have a games room where the activities range from snooker, darts, board games, cards, quizzes, music, to indoor skittles. 

 As an integral part of the local community we frequently have visits from musicians and choir singers from local schools. The home has its own mini-bus which is used regularly to take residents out on trips.

Our Staff

The home is run under the management of Lisa Bexton. Lisa is a Registered Nurse. All nursing staff have a formal nursing qualification. All care staff are trained in the care of older people and have NVQ qualifications or are working towards one. The home adopts a ‘key worker’ and ‘named nurse’ practice, where a member of staff takes interest in a particular resident and offers support and friendship.
