Re-opened in 2011, Alexandra House is a state-of-the-art three storey home with panoramic views of the seafront. The home offers up to 47 places for residential and dementia care with a range of facilities including landscaped gardens, en-suite shower rooms, conservatory, balcony, air conditioned communal areas and family rooms - fit for a king (or queen).

On 19 May 1905, during his visit to Dovercourt to inspect the local militia, King Edward VII stopped for dinner with his officers in the Alexandra Hotel, now Alexandra House.

The home is set in delightful grounds on Marine Parade to the east of the town centre, adjacent to Alexandra Court retirement living apartments.

Alexandra House is committed to providing alternative therapies such as reflexology and music therapy, which does much to help promote the well-being of each individual, while our Chaplain offers pastoral support to all, whatever their beliefs.

Funded through charitable support, every MHA care home also prides itself in being able to offer unique and memorable opportunities and activities for residents to quite literally help them 'seize the day'.

There’s a wide range of social events, so you never need to feel bored or lonely.

Meal times are a special part of the day for you to savour tasty food, freshly cooked by our chef to suit you and any dietary needs. And, of course refreshments are available throughout the day for you and your visitors, who are welcome at any time.
