About Aldringham Court

Aldringham Court is a large Grade II Listed house with a huge amount of history. Despite its age and size, the home is a warm and comfortable place to be. The rooms are various sizes and most have amazing views of the extensive woodland and gardens. The size of the home allows enough space for residents to enjoy whatever they want to do.

The accommodation includes a beautiful conservatory overlooking the woodland setting, dining room and a quiet reading room. The home is run by a long-standing team who all work well together. The staff really get to know the residents and there is a fun culture promoted throughout the home.

Activities and entertainment

Daily activities and entertainment are a core part of our quality care at Aldringham Court. We pride ourselves on offering a diverse, enriching range of weekly activities and entertainment allowing residents to continue to relish in their favourite hobbies and pastimes or to try out something new entirely.

We involve residents in the planning of our weekly activities timetables and offer one-to-one bespoke and tailored opportunities as requested. We’re also passionate about keeping our homes and residents at the heart of the local community, working closely with community groups, schools and other community connections to keep residents involved in local activities.

Some of our regular activities include:

  • Themed days
  • Outdoor cinema
  • Community fete
  • Monthly Library visits
  • Book club
  • Arts and crafts
  • Exercise classes
  • Live wildlife streaming
Dining

Dining is an essential part of the care package we provide to our residents, not only from a general health and wellbeing perspective, but we believe residents should be able to enjoy eating what they want, when they want.

Our chef Adam fully assesses all dietary needs, including likes and dislikes, allergies. special diets, through to preferred portion sizes and mealtimes. A monthly nutritional meeting helps create the menus, which are also determined by regular input from the residents. We have regular themed days so everyone can enjoy a selection of diverse foods, with written and picture menus used daily for all residents.

Our catering team prides itself on producing food of the highest quality, using local suppliers to create fresh, homemade dishes each day.

Location

Aldringham Court is located in the village of Aldringham in Suffolk and is very close to the coastline of Thorpeness and Aldeburgh. Minsmere and Lowestoft Marshland nature reserves are both close by and are great attractions for visiting families. Other places of interest are Ipswich and Norwich which are both about an hour’s drive away.

Health and wellness

The health and wellness of our residents is very important and we work closely in partnership with local health and wellness professionals to ensure every resident is able to lead a full and enriched life. We welcome visiting professionals such as GPs, chiropodists, opticians and can arrange visits to other professionals if and when it may be required.

Safety

Our visiting pod in the garden, with its two entrance points, protective Perspex screens, intercom system and a nurse call button, allows us to safely facilitate visits from friends and relatives when our infection control procedures prevent us from welcoming visitors into the home itself.

Our accommodation

Arranged over two floors, our 41 bedrooms can be personalised to make them a real home-from-home, and residents are able to enjoy a beautiful conservatory overlooking the woodland setting, a dining room and a quiet reading room.

All our bedrooms are provided ready-furnished with the essentials for instant comfort, and we happily encourage our residents to bring their own treasured furnishings and belongings if they would like to do so.

Amongst our range of well-equipped areas and facilities, there’s always space for quiet contemplation, or for enjoying the company of kindred spirits, and for relishing in interests and pursuits.

      Terms and Conditions

      If you will be funding your stay privately, please click here to view our Resident Contract of Admission for Self-Funders.

      If a Local Authority may be funding your stay, please click here to view our Resident Terms and Conditions for a Local Authority Funded Stay.

      Your Local Authority might locate/suggest a care home that is/your Local Authority believes is suitable to meet your care and support needs, that is of a lower cost than our required weekly fee. In this circumstance the Local Authority is unlikely to agree to fully fund your stay if you choose to select our care home instead of the less expensive establishment it has sourced for/suggested to you. In this event, private ‘top-up’ payments will be necessary in order to address the shortfall between our weekly fee and the weekly fee funding available from/offered by your Local Authority.

      An additional top-up payment will almost certainly be required if you select, or we only have available, a non-standard room in the care home and your Local Authority is only prepared to pay for a standard room. If you select, or we only have available, a non-standard room in the care home, the additional cost for that non-standard room will have to be met by top-up payments.

      Owing to the fact that your financial means will have been assessed by your Local Authority, it is very likely that the Local Authority will require private top-up payments to be made by a third party from their own funds. Although the Guidance to the Care Act 2014 states that a Local Authority ought itself collect top-up payments, some require us to collect such payments on their behalf. Should the Local Authority require us to collect top-up payments, we would issue the third party who is to fund the top-up with a contractual agreement for their review and signature.

      If a Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) may be funding your stay, please click here to view our Resident Terms and Conditions for a CCG Funded Stay.
