Daily Life at Cotman House
Keeping Things Personal
The beautiful seaside surroundings at Cotman House are matched by the standard of care our team brings residents. We love learning as much as we can about the people we care for, so your loved one’s time is tailored to their individual needs, interests and preferences. This can be as small as knowing when they like to wake up, to how they like their tea, and everything in between.
We give as much independence as possible, letting individuals choose how to run the home and if they prefer dinner in front of the TV, or even dusting their own room, we’ll make it happen. Just as putting their own stamp on their bedroom, we’ll help them to personalise it with the things they love.
I have lived here for over 2 years and have found it very good. Staff are very nice, the home is kept spotlessly clean and the food is excellent.
My experience has been entirely positive. The staff seem genuinely caring and treat residents as individuals.
I have found an excellent standard of care and cleanliness. Nothing has been too much trouble and the staff go far beyond the "call of duty".
Enjoy peace of mind with our all-inclusive care fees so you don’t have to worry about your household bills.
You’ll have as much support as you need, whenever you need it, delicious meals and a wide range of daily activities.
We consistently apply infection control procedures and services that meet or exceed the requirements and expectations of our customers.

Meet the ManagerFind out more about our Home Manager, Rebecca Bewley
Rebecca is our Home Manager at Cotman House Care Home, here's a little bit more about the home in her own words:
As the Home Manager at Cotman House Care Home, I lead a professional team in providing the highest standards of residential care for up to 61 residents. I started my career in care working in domiciliary care, quickly rising to senior carer then coordinator. Following a career evaluation, I decided to move into residential care and started working in a nursing home in Ipswich, where I specialised in dementia and palliative care.
I was then offered my first management role as Deputy Manager of another home and following support from the home manager, I gained my management qualification and I have never looked back.
Care is so important to me as having nursed my husband and mother, I have seen things from ‘the other side’, which gives me an insight into what is important to residents and their family members. Supporting them to make their choices known and discussing the options available to them helps to empower their choice.
I like that every day is different and the highlights for me are making residents smile, walking the home and spotting things that will make a difference to residents lives. Supporting and developing the team around me is also something that is important to me, as this enhances the resident’s lives and drives outstanding care, so they can have the most fulfilled lives possible.
My love of dogs, of which I have 5 plays a significant role in my life. I rescue dogs - mostly blind - through Blind Dog Rescue UK. I like to live life to the full and experience new things, so a couple of years ago I went to work on a ranch in South Dakota & Wyoming herding buffalo and longhorn. In the future I plan to wing-walk on the top of a bi-plane.

Our Head Chef and the team have many years of cooking experience. They craft their nutritionally balanced menus using seasonal produce, and are guided by the feedback provided to them from our residents during their monthly hospitality meetings and individual care plans.
All members of our care teams are given the training and support needed to help them provide the highest standards of care.
Caring Homes has been providing care for over 25 years. Every team member receives our unique ‘Living in my World’ dementia training which is accredited by City and Guilds.
It highlights the importance of meaningful activities and a stimulating environment for people living with dementia, as well as addressing clinical aspects of care.
The ‘Food in my World’ training, also accredited by City and Guilds provides the hospitality team and chefs with the skills and knowledge to stimulate senses and increase creativity in the cooking and presentation of food. This can provide a much-improved dining experience for residents living with dementia and or dysphagia.
The length of time people spend in a care home varies according to their needs and preferences. Our homes offer permanent care to suit your needs or perhaps a respite stay might be required during a period of convalescence after being in hospital. Day Care is also available at many homes to ensure care can continue when a regular carer is unavailable.
