The centre is well designed and presented. It is welcoming and attractively decorated throughout. The staff are very friendly and helpful and it is very noticeable that they care about the residents. There is access from some rooms to a secured garden, very nice dining/lounge areas, smaller areas with table and chairs overlooking the garden and all are easily accessed overall.

My 92 year old mother has been living at Rendlesham for a year now. She has dementia and doesn't understand why she is not in her own home. So life is difficult and confusing for her and she can easily become unsettled. The staff at Rendlesham make every effort to make her day happy. They are very kind and do their best to provide a stimulating environment for her. She likes her room and enjoys the food... carehomes.co.uk - Dr B Son of Resident/Service User
Dad has thoroughly enjoyed his stay. He thought the food was wonderful, as were the staff and care he received. He felt safe and had plenty of company he would happily come again. As his daughter, I felt entirely happy to leave him in your care, and speaking to him whilst I was away I knew he was in good hands. Thank you.

I expected respite charges to be per night entitling him to 44 hours care rather than the 34 hours we got, however everything else was absolutely excellent. Thank you! I would happily recommend this home to family and friends.

Been asked to do a report very happy to do so. Very good so far. Staff friendly and patient keen to please. Looked at several in the area this one impressed us for mums needs.- Mark J Son of Resident/Service User
I am unable to comment fully as I live 125 miles away from Rendlesham and am unable to visit my mother as often as I like. However I telephone frequently and am very pleased with the attitude and care of the staff. They always phone if mother is 'out of sorts'. My mother seems to be treated very well and for a person with her problems seems to be very happy.
Review relates to November 2014... carehomes.co.uk - Ian M Son of Resident/Service User
My aunt had been living independently until she was 94, but following a fall needed a care home. Rendlesham is in my village, I feel this is fortunate as my aunt is well looked after. I go to see her once or twice a week. She never was a great socialiser so doesn't take part in any activities but she is always contented, her clothes and bedding etc. always fresh. Her physical health is monitored, rooms are equipped with sensors, and she buzzes for assistance to move around... carehomes.co.uk - Simon L Niece of Resident/Service User
My 90+ year old parent arrived on the day their spouse had died under traumatic circumstances. Dementia, anxiety, confusion and a long-standing general lack of interest in personal care conspired to make this a most difficult day ahead of some difficult weeks to come. My parent resented any help and rejected all assistance. Day by day the staff built bridges by being interested in the person but without being over directive... carehomes.co.uk - Dr B Son of Resident/Service User

I would not hesitate to recommend this home to anyone. If searching, look no further, this place is up to a standard by which all others should be judged.- James N Son of Resident/Service User
Joe being a 95 year old man had a severe fall getting out of the car. Once back at home, he wanted to go to bed. He slept all day and all night. I kept checking on him and he was breathing comfortably. The next morning, I found him on his bathroom floor. The emergency service did not consider him a case for hospitalisation (no broken bones, no stroke etc). However, Joe kept being very confused and hardly drank or ate anything for two days... carehomes.co.uk - Mario D Partner of Resident/Service User

I chose Rendlesham Care Centre for my mother 2 1/2 years ago, after a long and detailed search. I have been happy with the care which is being offered. The staff are very caring and are very familiar with my mother's needs, which are increasing with her illness. Also, a member of staff told me he himself no longer feared death, since seeing first-hand how Rendlesham handled residents' deaths!- Gill A Daughter of Resident/Service User
