Daily life

Keeping things personal

At Mellish House Residential Home

The welcoming surroundings at Mellish House Residential Home 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.

Keep doing what you love

At Mellish House Residential Home, there’s something to tickle everyone’s fancy – from the craft room to the lounge, our packed schedule of events and activities, to picnics outside. And if residents prefer to spend one-on-one time with a member of the team, they can read the paper, pop to the shops or have a pint in the local pub. We have strong connections with the Sudbury community, many of our residents invite them to join in our activities or even run their own here.

Meet the Manager

Maekhala Allan

As Home Manager of Mellish House, I lead a professional care team in delivering the highest standards of specialist care for up to 48 elderly people living with dementia.

I have over 23 years of experience across Adult Mental Health, Elderly Mental Health and Adult Social Care services, spending the last 14 years in management roles. I hold SVQ’s in Adult Health and Social Care Levels 3 & 4 and QCF Level 5.

As a people person, caring has always been a passion of mine. This is the aspect that makes my job worthwhile, making a positive impact on our residents and their families lives no matter how big or small, in what has become their home and supporting them to continue a good quality of life.

I continuously work to improve and maintain the care standards at Mellish House and have in the past help to raise thousands of pounds to purchase items that have had a positive impact on those I support, including a wheelchair power pack for someone to get out and about, an electronic massage bed to help with MS symptoms and a wardrobe full of clothes for someone who lost all their belongings in a house fire. It’s these personal touches that can make all the difference.

The local community is very important to Mellish House, I have worked hard to build a good reputation to make Mellish a home of choice, this includes an ‘Oustanding’ rating by CQC and a continuous care team who help deliver an excellent standards of care to our residents.

Away from work, I enjoy reading and spending time with my family and dog. I also love music and socialising with friends.
