Haughgate House is located in the local market town of Woodbridge in Suffolk. The property was converted into a nursing home in the 1980s and has recently undergone a major refurbishment to provide a range of new facilities in keeping with the 1920s home. Alongside the 12-bedroom extension, there is a kitchen, two new communal day rooms and comfortable lounges with garden views to be enjoyed by residents.
The home is set in a peaceful and tranquil setting with lovely grounds to enjoy. It has a great reputation in the local area for delivering high quality nursing care. The staff work very hard and well together and the staff and residents have good, trusting relationships. Visitors, professionals and family’s needs are always met.
Daily activities and entertainment are a core part of our quality care at Haughgate House. 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:
- Coffee mornings
- Friday quizzes
- Arts & Crafts
- Ladies & Gentlemen’s clubs
- Group activities
- One-to-one sessions
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.
There is plenty of choice offered with all meals. Hot meals are available for lunch and dinner everyday. And cooked breakfasts at weekends. There is a four-weekly rolling menu in the home and this is changed often. Resident meetings take place so that residents can have regular input and requests can be taken.
Our chef fully assesses all dietary needs, including likes and dislikes, allergies. special diets, through to preferred portion sizes and mealtimes. Our catering team prides itself on producing food of the highest quality, using local suppliers to create fresh, homemade dishes each day.
The home is located in the heart of Woodbridge, a beautiful, historic town with the iconic Tide Mill on the quayside and peaceful views across the harbour, gaze out as the sun rises out to sea in the mornings. With shops, cafes, pubs and places of entertainment such as the Riverside Cinema, there is always something to do to occupy visitors.
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 42 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. In addition, we have three double bedrooms available for couples if required.
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, offer an al fresco setting to enjoy anything from exercise to taking tea.
