Get in Contact with Bucklesham Grange Care Home
Bucklesham Grange is a multi-award winning care home in Ipswich. The home is set in a beautiful location, surrounded by tranquil countryside. We provide flexible care to include quality nursing, residential and dementia care – so if the needs of your loved one change, they are unlikely to have to move home.
Our home is an integral part of the local community and we host monthly support groups for our local Alzheimer’s Society and Suffolk Family Carer Group. Popular activities in the home include film nights, ‘movement to music’ and cocktail parties! Residents are also supported to continue with the everyday routines which make their lives theirs. Whether it’s collecting a morning paper from our on-site corner shop, or simply popping in to our café to make a cup of tea, our care team encourage residents to live an active and independent lifestyle.
Outside, we have stunning landscaped gardens which flow around the home. Our gardens include a greenhouse, a ‘tea pot tree’ (created by our residents) and six friendly chickens! Our green-fingered residents love the gardening, while others prefer to sit out on the café patio area and chat to friends and family over tea and cake.
We are proud to have been recognised both locally and nationally for the facilities on offer and the care we provide. We were awarded as the ‘Best Care Home’ at the prestigious Pinders Design Awards and our General Manager, Carol, was crowned ‘Care Home Manger of the Year’ at the East of England Care Awards.

Meet the team
Carol Rhind - General Manager
I am the general manager at Bucklesham Grange, ensuring that all the team are supported to work at their best every moment, with the residents, their families and our visitors. I qualified as a district nurse in 1998 but my passion has always been working with older people.
Donna Cathmoir - Clinical Care Manager
I qualified as a Registered General Nurse in 1984 then went on to qualify as a Registered Metnal Health Nurse. I have held various posts as a Macmillan Nurse but then moved into working in care homes. I felt at once that there was an area of care where I could use all my skills, knowledge and experience to benefit the residents.
I love working at Bucklesham Grange as the Clinical Care Manager. I have the the time to give the care I believe is important and it is amazing to be working with a Team that hold the same values that I do; recognising that the best care can only be given when the importance of individuality, dignity, choice and the value of all relationships are respected.
