My father has lived at Bucklesham Grange for over five years. The facilities and care provided have always been excellent and he has been treated with dignity and respect throughout by all the staff at Bucklesham. He is always addressed by his name even if the staff member is just passing him in a corridor. If he wants to join in with the wide range of activities on offer he can. If he’d rather be by himself or doing something one-to-one he can. The choice is his. Bucklesham Grange is a very friendly place, for both residents and their visitors. The staff always go “that extra mile” to ensure Dad is as happy and as content as he can be. As a family, we know Dad is in a safe, caring and friendly home. I would thoroughly recommend Bucklesham Grange.

When my mother was in need of full time care she chose (without visiting) a care home because she had heard it was nice. After a month of what I considered poor care, I was able to convince her that Bucklesham Grange would be a far better place to live. Fortunately, she accepted my recommendation. At the time of writing, she has been at Bucklesham Grange for 20 months and neither she nor I have once regretted that decision. The building itself is situated in a premier residential area on the edge of Ipswich and set on in beautifully maintained grounds. The staff have been incredibly caring and supportive and she feels they 'love' her. Within the home, my Mum's room is very nice and opens onto a patio. Residents are encouraged to participate in activities and the food is well prepared. There seems to be an activity/celebration going on most days. There are regular reviews. I have little doubt that the staff have a clear objective to care for the residents and this they do incredibly well.

As a Healthcare Professional, I attended this Carehome, in early December, and witnessed fantastic care being given by four of their care staff. Caring, compassionate and reassuring, they were very clearly genuinely concerned about the residents well-being and so attentive to his needs. So fantastic to see!

My Uncle lives here and is very well looked after. Whenever I call him he is happy and busy with the events that are on offer. They looked after him well during this difficult time and gave us peace of mind.

Dad has Alzheimer's and has been at Bucklesham for 5.5 years now. During this time his care has always been excellent from all elements of staff. We are in regular contact with the Reception and Care Teams, who clearly have close relationships with him. The home is so clean and the rooms and facilities are exceptional! The support through lockdown has been brilliant with regular FaceTime chats and update calls, with their use of the Rels App and Facebook. I have also got to know the Lifestyle team in lockdown, who spend so much crucial time with the residents, engaging and encouraging them, supporting FaceTime calls and visits. Their support has been a real help to get dad talking and engaged in our absence. Everyone at Bucklesham has worked so hard to keep dad and the other residents safe and as happy as possible. Thank you so much for enabling us to keep in touch with dad as best possible and the whole team for all the love you show dad and the other residents.
