Located by Rendlesham Forest on the outskirts of the village, Rendlesham Care Centre is one of Caring Homes’ newest care homes in Suffolk, offering state of the art residential, nursing and specialist dementia care for up to 60 elderly people.
Rendlesham Care Centre in Suffolk comprises three self-contained communities in one location, retaining a real sense of smaller scale homely living with the added benefit of easy adaptation to meet residents’ changing care needs. A real highlight of the home is its ‘Forget Me Not’ garden, specially designed to provide a safe and stimulating environment for elderly residents living with a form of dementia.
Rendlesham Care Centre’s dementia care provision has been designed to meet the University of Stirling’s standards, which are widely acknowledged as providing the best living environment for people living with dementia. Stirling’s Dementia Services Development Centre is renowned as the world leader in this field. The Stirling approach ensures that residents are able to move freely around the home, with bedrooms and communal areas appropriately laid out and clearly signposted to minimise confusion or disorientation. Each bedroom features a memory box by its front door, where mementos from a resident’s life help to personalise their room and also remind staff and visitors of the individual’s life story.
Rendlesham Care Centre in Suffolk is ideally equipped to provide residential support for elderly people living with different types of dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia and Korsacoff’s syndrome. However, staff never lose sight of the fact that, first and foremost, Rendlesham Care Centre is home to our residents.
This care & nursing home in Suffolk offers a full range of residential, nursing and specialist dementia support, including trial stays, respite breaks and convalescent care as well as long term care. Residents are encouraged to bring important personal possessions to personalise their rooms. Rendlesham Care Centre in Suffolk operates an open visiting policy, where residents and loved ones may visit at convenient times. In common with all of our homes, Rendlesham’s manager has a qualified nursing background. The home is fully registered with the Care Quality Commission and has ISO9001/2000 and Hospitality Assured accreditation.

Life in a Caring Home is viewed as a continuum of life – an opportunity to gain new experiences and learn new things – whilst maintaining your existing hobbies and interests.
At every Caring Home, there is a dedicated activities co-ordinator who is on hand to support residents in learning new hobbies and maintaining existing ones.
An activities programme is developed by the activities co-ordinators who work in conjunction with the clinical team in reviewing each individuals occupational interests and tailoring an activities programme that addresses them.
For further information about activities please visit our “living with us” section.

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

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 Doucet Partner of Resident/Service User

I visited my brother Barry recently and found him happy and well looked after. The staff are very good and understanding with regards to my brothers needs due to his dementia.

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
My Mum has been resident at Rendlesham for almost 3 years. She has Parkinson's disease and is wheelchair bound. Whilst the home has had its ups and downs, the care provided by the staff has been on the whole exemplary. The home is modern and purpose built but feels very homely and clean. Relatives are made to feel very welcome and I certainly feel 'part of the team' looking after my lovely Mum which is important to me... carehomes.co.uk" - Clare Daughter of Resident/Service User
