St Michaels Homes Ltd comprises of two elderly care homes which are adjacent to each other. Howard Lodge and Dudbrook Hall, nestling in beautiful park-like gardens in Kelvedon Common on the outskirts of Brentwood, are surrounded by beautiful Essex countryside with abundant wildlife including deer as regular visitors.
We are a family run company, established in 1991 with directors Sheila Watson and her children Claire, Peter and Sean. Sheila trained as a registered nurse and midwife followed by 25 years midwifery, followed by 5 years as a health advisor to the elderly, and obtained a diploma in gerontology. With this experience care of residents comes from the top down, this can be seen by the way residents are cared for by all staff.
