Life at Poplar House

At Poplar House, you choose the lifestyle that suits you.

In the morning, a local shop can deliver your milk or newspaper, and during the day we’ll give you a call to check you’re okay. After breakfast in your apartment or the restaurant, you might choose to meet friends in our lounge, or take part in one of our regular activities. At lunchtime, the restaurant serves delicious hot meals, or you may want to prepare lunch for yourself, or for friends or family in your apartment.

If you fancy a change of scenery, you might visit the nearby Northlands Park and enjoy its fishing lakes and rose gardens. Alternatively, you could head to Basildon town centre or Eastgate Shopping Centre for a spot of shopping, or even catch the train and spend the day in London.

In the afternoon, you might join us in the lounge for one of our regular social events, take part in our book or knitting clubs, go on a wellbeing walk, or just relax and enjoy the afternoon film. By evening, you may want to take it easy after all the activity! If not, you can always join friends to watch TV, or for a chat, a game of cards or a mutual hobby.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is the national independent regulator of all health and social care services in England. They inspect and monitor care homes, nursing homes and supported housing where personal care is provided and produce reports about them, to help you find a service that suits you.
