Opened in 1976, Mill Lane care home is located in the pretty seaside town of Felixstowe in Suffolk. The home, which was once the local doctor’s surgery, has been sympathetically extended and refurbished to now offer a choice of welcoming reception rooms with attractive patio areas, all available for our residents and their guests to enjoy.
The dedicated team of staff offer expert care to residents. Nothing is too much trouble and they are always doing their best to respond to queries and questions. The staff treat each resident as an individual and the care is very much person-centred. For peace and tranquillity, well maintained gardens surround the home providing quiet a haven from the bustle of the nearby town.
Daily activities and entertainment are a core part of our quality care at Mill Lane. 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:
- Visiting entertainers
- Flower arranging
- Reading time
- Needlework and sewing
- Themed nights
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 are asked on the day what they want to eat – there is always a good choice and the chef will do their best to make sure everyone is happy. The kitchen is well stocked. We hold regular residents’ meetings, and part of those will involve speaking with the chef about likes and dislikes.
Our chef fully assesses all dietary needs, allergies. special diets, through to preferred portion sizes and mealtimes. The catering team prides itself on producing food of the highest quality, using local suppliers to create fresh, homemade dishes each day.

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.
