Widely regarded as one of Felixstowe’s finest care homes, Foxgrove is spacious throughout with generously proportioned bedrooms, and an elegant lounge and dining room combine to create a charming environment for residents. Many of the rooms have recently been refurbished using decor styles from the Victorian era.
The home is situated in a lovely setting surrounded by beautiful tree-lined gardens.
Staff work hard to make sure all the residents feel reassured and well cared for. Our ethos is that we work in the residents’ home and we always put their needs above all else. The atmosphere is friendly and welcoming from the minute you step through the door.
Daily activities and entertainment are a core part of our quality care at Foxgrove. 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:
- Summer garden boules
- Gardening club
- Afternoon cream teas outside
- Visiting entertainers
- ‘Brass on the grass' with Pimms
- In-house scrabble competition
- Arts and crafts
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 daily meals are very much determined by the residents. Our chef does an afternoon tea round and regularly chats to residents to find out their likes and dislikes. There is plenty of choice on the menu, but he’ll always do something separate for residents who don’t like the choices on offer.
Snacks are available around the clock with fresh homemade cakes every day. Our catering team prides itself on producing food of the highest quality, using local suppliers to create fresh, homemade dishes each day and we cater for all dietary requirements.
This handsome Victorian mansion stands uniquely positioned in the seaside town of Felixstowe. There is easy access to all local facilities, with a post office and general store in the immediate vicinity. The nearby cliffs and town centre provide a perfect setting for walks or relaxation although residents are also happy to enjoy the beautifully maintained gardens.
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.
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.
Arranged over two floors, our 20 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.
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.
Our beautiful gardens, bordered by flower beds and mature trees, offer an al fresco setting to enjoy anything from regular exercise to taking tea.
