Speak to us today about respite care
Bucklesham Grange is a multi-award winning care home in Ipswich which provides residential care, nursing care and dementia care. The home is set in a beautiful location, surrounded by tranquil countryside. We provide flexible care which includes the highest quality nursing, residential and dementia care – so if the needs of your loved one change, they are unlikely to have to move home.
Our residents are supported to live an active and fulfilled life. Our relationship-centred care enables residents to keep on doing the things they’ve always loved – the things they perhaps thought they could no longer enjoy. So as part of our community, they’ll be able to cook, help out in the garden and carry on with the kind of everyday routines which make their lives theirs.
Life at Bucklesham Grange
This purpose built care home allows residents to carry on with those everyday routine they cherish, including having a weekly hair and nail appointment in the homes luxurious hair salon, catching up with friends over fresh coffee and homemade cake in the vibrant café, or enjoying a walk around our beautiful landscaped gardens. Residents can also enjoy a relaxing massage in the therapy room, have a family get together in the celebrations room, or enjoy their favourite film at the state-of-the-art cinema.
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’, arts and crafts and cocktail parties! Our care team tailor activities to the individual needs of residents so that everyone can get involved.
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.
Meanwhile, our award-winning specialist dementia environments are designed specifically to enhance the quality of life of our residents, offering stability, reassurance and familiarity.
