Frequently Asked Questions
Well, there's no set answer to this as it depends on the room concerned and the individual's care needs. As every room is different and resident's care needs vary we can't have a set charge. But you can rest assured that we offer competitive rates.
Can you cope with special dietary needs?
Most definitely. All our food is prepared on site, plus there is always a choice on the menu, so coping with special dietary needs is easy. If someone has a particular wish we're happy to accommodate it - but pâté de foie gras might have to be treated as an extra!
Can we accommodate resident's personal effects or memory items?
We insist upon it, as it helps to make residents' rooms more homely and more comfortable.
What's the programme of activities?
While there is a programme, we prefer our residents to do what they want to do at their own pace. So many of our residents will be doing something different.
What are the visiting hours?
There aren't any because, within reason, it can be all day every day - whenever you want to call in, you're welcome. You or the residents pick and choose when you see each other.
What's the provision for medical services?
Unless a resident wishes to retain their current GP, as a rule we automatically register patients with our local GP practice – Mendlesham Medical Group (Bacton Surgery).
