Foxearth Lodge is situated in the heart of the Suffolk countryside near the historical market town of Framlingham. Surrounded by fields and farms, the home will appeal to residents who enjoy country life. The location is peaceful and tranquil and residents can relax and enjoy the beautiful gardens and views.
The warm and comfortable accommodation has been specially designed and built to enhance the independence and quality of life of our residents. We encourage residents to get involved in daily activities throughout the home, and residents enjoy chatting with staff who like to spend time with the residents.
Daily activities and entertainment are a core part of our quality care at Foxearth Lodge. 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 activities
- Charity - Alzheimer’s Society
- Activity days
- Armchair exercises
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.
The chef produces an eight-week rolling menu which contains a variety of foods, residents like to include traditional foods and options for special needs. We adjust the meals as we need to, to suit all types of diet.
We have a daily food menu, which includes breakfast, lunch and dinner. Mid-morning, afternoon and evening snacks and drinks are also served, and sandwiches, biscuits and other refreshments are available at any time of the day.
Our catering team prides itself on producing food of the highest quality, using local suppliers to create fresh, homemade dishes each day.
Located in the small village of Saxtead in East Suffolk, the home is surrounded by beautiful countryside. There is plenty for visitors to do within the area to include a nearby garden centre, local shop and Framlingham Castle. The riverside town of Woodbridge is just a 25 minute drive away and the market town of Wickam is also close by.
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.
Arranged over two floors, our 65 bedrooms can be personalised to make them a real home-from-home, and residents are able to enjoy a selection of lounges, dining rooms and well-kept gardens for relaxing, socialising and entertaining.
All of 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. We also have two double rooms available which can accommodate couples.
Our in-house hairdressing salon provides the perfect sanctuary to keep our residents feeling their best, whilst our vast gardens, bordered by flower beds and mature trees, offer an al fresco setting to enjoy anything from regular exercise to taking tea.
