Agincare Members Recommended on

We have an environment and facilities you won’t find at other care homes. From our independent living cottage and specialist mental health unit, through to our dementia care unit, we can support a large range of mental health issues.

We really are a ‘home from home’. Many of our residents have been with us for more than 10 years. As their needs have changed, so has the level and type of care they receive from us.

As well as caring for you, we care about your families too. Our door is always open for a chat, and our residents’ and families’ forum gives you a way to support each other. Plus, your family members are welcome in at any time, for a cuppa, or to join us for a meal.

Social activities

We place great emphasis on social activities and maintaining the type of life you have had at home, whether that is quiet and relaxed or an active lifestyle.


At Crecy Care Home you will be served freshly prepared home cooked meals by our team of expert chefs. They ensure all our meals are healthy, nutritionally balanced and, most importantly, locally sourced wherever possible. Meals are served in our superb dining room, but you also have the option for food to be served in your room for a more private dining experience.

Nutrition is an important part of the care we provide. That’s why our catering team take time to get to know your likes and dislikes before putting together a vibrant and varied menu for you to choose from.


There are 31 single bedrooms for people living at Crecy, across three floors of our main house and 5 rooms in The Cottage. All our rooms have ensuites or washbasins in the room. The rooms without ensuites have accessible bathrooms nearby.

Some of our bedrooms have amazing views over the Radipole Lake RSPB reserve, Weymouth and beyond. Others open directly onto the garden with room for a table and chairs.


We love our garden. Most of the bedrooms of the ground floor have direct access to our outside space, with room for a table and chairs.

The secure, enclosed garden has different areas, including a south-facing lawned area, borders, a greenhouse and raised beds planted and maintained by the residents.

Frequently asked questions

Crecy is one of the few specialist facilities in the south-west dedicated to providing mental health care for younger adults 18+ with complex mental health conditions.

The mental health unit, together with the independent living cottage, provides the ideal setting for those who need ongoing care following their discharge from hospital into less secure accommodation, supporting a large range of mental health issues and problems.

When you move in to our home, you have the option to enjoy mealtimes in the communal areas with other residents, or to enjoy some private time in your room. If you live in the cottage, you have your own kitchen to utilise but also have the option to have food cooked by our chefs in the home itself.

Our expert chefs prepare a daily menu with nutritious options for you to choose from based on your likes and dislikes. Our chefs will always ask for feedback, and are more than willing to adapt menus. We are so proud that our kitchen team have received a 5* ‘Very Good’ rating from the Food Standards Agency.

What’s more, our care teams are always on hand to support and encourage you at mealtimes, ensuring you get the nutrition and hydration needed.

Residents in both units enjoy the greatest freedom possible, combined with the highest levels of mental health care provided by highly experienced and trained team.

The Cottage is a self-contained annexe to our main building with its own bedrooms (mostly en-suite), plus a kitchen, wetroom and lounge.

It gives its residents a level of independence, particular to each person, with help on hand when they need it. It also provides ideal community rehabilitation tailored to the people living there.

Our bespoke care and support is available for a single weekly fee. That includes care, accommodation, laundry, meals, housekeeping, social outings and more.

That means no additional charges or hidden fees, just consistent, all-inclusive support for a weekly fee.

Funding may be available from your local authority. Firstly, they will check how much help and what kind of care you need: this is the needs assessment. Following on from that, the free financial assessment calculates the total cost of care and how much you’ll need to contribute.

If you don’t want a financial assessment you can choose to pay for your care home yourself – this is called self-funding.

If you would like to view our home then don’t hesitate to give us a call and we would be happy to arrange a no obligation home visit. Alternatively, we have regular coffee mornings where anyone is able to pop in. This is great opportunity to get to know our team and residents.

Once you become a resident at our home, there are no set visiting hours, so your family and friends are free to come and go as much as they want.
