Maynell House is located in the seaside town of Felixstowe. It is a superb home with a real difference, offering a wonderful environment for residents to relax or socialise. Set in landscaped gardens, the home is a lovely place to be and the staff work hard to help residents remain as independent as they can with a gentle network of help provided, should they need it.
A high standard of care is provided throughout the home – it is a home for residents, not the staff. The atmosphere is relaxed and easy-going and the staff support residents with whatever activities they choose to do. The home is located in a really nice area of Old Felixstowe on a quiet, leafy road.
Daily activities and entertainment are a core part of our quality care at Maynell 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:
- Summer garden boules
- Gardening club
- Afternoon cream teas
- Visiting entertainers
- ‘Brass on the grass' with Pimms
- In-house scrabble competition
- Arts and craft
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 residents hold all the cards – our chef does an afternoon tea round and chats to residents to find out their likes and dislikes. There is plenty of choice on the menu but the chef will always do something separate for residents who may require it.
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.
Located in the seaside town of Felixstowe in Suffolk, there are a number of beautiful beaches close by and a long promenade. The town is a Victorian seaside hamlet with cafes, shops and ice cream stands a-plenty. Places of interest for visitors include the Spa gardens, the Spa Pavillion Theatre and Boardwalk Pier.
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 four floors, our 24 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 offer an al fresco setting where residents can enjoy anything from regular exercise to taking tea.
