Get in Contact with Admiral Court Care Home
Admiral Court is a modern care home in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex, which is leading the way in care for those living with a form of dementia. Our General Manager, Rebekah, is the current ‘Dementia Care Manager of the Year’ (National Care Awards) and the home has been recognised nationally for its design innovations.
We provide the highest quality of dementia care as well as nursing and palliative care in quiet and comfortable surroundings. We operate a high team member to resident ratio which affords every resident the opportunity to have care provided at their pace, while our Lifestyle and Activities team ensure that the needs of each individual resident are met. Activities range from the energetic and popular Zumba sessions, to the more relaxed walking and gardening clubs.
Facilities such as the ‘Corner Shop’ and the ‘Little Ship Pub’ encourage residents to continue their everyday routines in familiar settings, while the state-of-the-art cinema and the relaxing therapy room are luxurious retreats. There is also a large café just inside our reception where residents and their family and friends can enjoy fresh coffee and homemade cakes.
Visit us today and see for yourself how we enable residents living with dementia to continue to live life to the full, and perhaps even do things they could no longer do in their own home.
Did you know? We host a weekly day centre for Essex Dementia Care which enables local people living with dementia to experience a day in a care home setting.

I qualified as a nurse in 1990, working on general medical wards and in occupational health, moving onto nurse recruitment and care management. I live in Southend with my partner and two dogs.

I am the Dementia Team Leader at Admiral Court where I lead on the dementia strategy within the home. Before joining Hallmark Care Homes in 2012 I was working in residential care while studying for my NVQ level 3 in Health and Social Care. I am qualified to run Dementia Friends training sessions.
Kirsten Houston - Clinical Care Manager
I am the Clinical Care Manager at Admiral Court and have been instrumental in setting up the nursing community at Admiral Court which now provides a high standard of nursing care to people with palliative care needs and long term chronic conditions. I trained as a Nurse at Southend University Hospital and qualified in 1998, working in Acute Medicine and moving on to work a registered nurse in the local community.
