About Richard Cox House

About Richard Cox House

Richard Cox House offers a warm and homely environment with real character and charm. We provide a wide range of communal areas including lounges, cosy corners, dining rooms and more, which you have the freedom to spend time in with others or within the privacy of your own room. Each bedroom is fully furnished but you are welcome to bring your own possessions and make it your own.

Our Activity Care Worker at Richard Cox House is on hand to plan a wide range of activities for you to enjoy, there is always something to get involved with and you can take part in as much or as little as you like.

If you love the outdoors, the award winning garden at our Royston Home is the perfect place to do a spot of gardening or to simply relax and take in the surroundings.

The tranquil environment makes Richard Cox House the ideal setting for the high level of care we bring to our residents.

Welcome to Richard Cox Q Club. Open Monday to Friday from 10am to 3pm, our Royston club offers day guests the opportunity to make new friends, whilst taking part in a choice of activities.

Most of our day care centres are attached to one of our care homes which means that many of the facilities available to our full time residents are also available to our day care guests - such as a visit to the hairdresser (booked directly with the centre). 

Our Q Club Co-ordinator at Richard Cox House is Tracey Daniel, and she would be delighted to welcome your family member into our Royston club. Tracey says “Our Q Club offers a homely environment with a large, comfortable lounge for socialising, as well as a quiet area. We offer a variety of activities, from quizzes and arts and crafts, to gardening, cooking and daily living skills sessions. We also make a point of celebrating special occasions such as birthdays and nation wide events.


Meet our team


Nicky Farey
Deputy Home Manager
I enjoy being part of a team that enables our residents to have fulfilling and enjoyable lives while receiving the care and support they need.



Irene Lovelock
Housekeeping Manager
Keeping the team of Housekeepers running as it should is the Housekeeping Manager. Supervising and organising their teams is just part of it as these Managers work alongside them to keep the home clean and inviting. The comfort of residents is the most important thing to our Housekeeping Managers which is why they work so hard to create an environment in which residents can’t help but feel at home. Multi-tasking and communication skills are some of the most important of the Housekeeping Manager’s qualities as they and their team create a home where resident’s dignity is never compromised and independence is always encouraged. Our Housekeeping Managers ensure that all areas of our home are safe, clean, well maintained and presented in a way to create a warm and homely environment. They have an important role in maintaining our infection, prevention and control standards to make sure our residents stay well.
Marc Gothard
Food Service Co-ordinator

The Food Service Co-ordinator is responsible for ensuring the quality of the dining experience of the residents in the home, making sure that meals are varied, nutritious and of a high standard.

Jayne Bursnall
The Administrator will focus on the smooth running of the home; in whatever area they may be needed. From greeting visitors to recruiting, the Administrator is present in many aspects of life in the home, even if you don’t always see them! To be successful in the role, our Administrators have to be flexible and calm, able to multi-task and always keen to take on a new challenge. It’s often the Administrator that brings the IT skills to a home, helping them to keep everything organised. Above that though, Administrators are communicators, able to speak confidently and listen closely to everyone from Managers and Care Workers to visitors and residents.
