A home from home

We are one large family at Uvedale Hall and we treat all of our residents with the utmost respect while providing the highest standard of care. Residents’ wellbeing is at the heart of everything we do, and this is reflected in the amount of love and laughter we share within the home.

Our devoted staff, many of whom are long serving, are available constantly to provide professional care that respects the rights and dignity of every resident. Residents are regularly assessed to ensure they receive the best care to suit their needs and we work hard to make everyone at the home, including visitors, feel well looked after.

Activities and entertainment

Daily activities and entertainment are a core part of our quality care at Uvedale Hall. 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:

  • Quiz events
  • Local school visits
  • PT sessions
  • Bingo
  • Music and movement classes
  • Singer and entertainers
  • Games room
  • Garden club
  • Visits from the local Vicar
  • Knitting afternoons
  • Cookery
  • Art & crafts
  • Fishing club
  • Minibus trips

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.

We cater to the needs of all our residents so they can get what they like to eat, when they like to have it. Residents are welcome to dine communally or eat in their rooms according to their daily preferences. Food is sourced locally where possible, which is of importance to residents, especially those who have always lived locally.

Our chefs and nutritional leads fully assess all dietary needs, including likes and dislikes, allergies. special diets, through to preferred portion sizes and mealtimes.


Uvedale Hall is located in Gipping Valley in the attractive Suffolk town of Needham Market. It is a convenient spot for visiting the nearby towns of Ipswich and Stowmarket and Needham Lake is also close by, providing a perfect location for walking.

With easy access to and from London by train, visitors to the area can enjoy a number of landmarks such as the East Anglian Museum, Stonham Barns Owl Sanctuary and Hadleigh. There are also lots of pubs, a post office, antique and boutique shops in Needham Market.

Health and wellness

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.

Our accommodation

Uvedale Hall is an attractive Georgian home with accomodation arranged over two floors. Residents can enjoy a choice of two elegant lounges and a south-facing conservatory with beautiful views, while a spacious garden with a pond offers plenty of opportunity to enjoy nature.

All our 29 bedrooms are fully furnished with en-suite facilities and tasteful decor. Residents are encouraged to bring items of their own furniture and possessions with them so that their room can become truly their own.

      Terms and Conditions

      If you will be funding your stay privately, please click here to view our Resident Contract of Admission for Self-Funders.

      If a Local Authority may be funding your stay, please click here to view our Resident Terms and Conditions for a Local Authority Funded Stay.

      Your Local Authority might locate/suggest a care home that is/your Local Authority believes is suitable to meet your care and support needs, that is of a lower cost than our required weekly fee. In this circumstance the Local Authority is unlikely to agree to fully fund your stay if you choose to select our care home instead of the less expensive establishment it has sourced for/suggested to you. In this event, private ‘top-up’ payments will be necessary in order to address the shortfall between our weekly fee and the weekly fee funding available from/offered by your Local Authority.

      An additional top-up payment will almost certainly be required if you select, or we only have available, a non-standard room in the care home and your Local Authority is only prepared to pay for a standard room. If you select, or we only have available, a non-standard room in the care home, the additional cost for that non-standard room will have to be met by top-up payments.

      Owing to the fact that your financial means will have been assessed by your Local Authority, it is very likely that the Local Authority will require private top-up payments to be made by a third party from their own funds. Although the Guidance to the Care Act 2014 states that a Local Authority ought itself collect top-up payments, some require us to collect such payments on their behalf. Should the Local Authority require us to collect top-up payments, we would issue the third party who is to fund the top-up with a contractual agreement for their review and signature.

      If a Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) may be funding your stay, please click here to view our Resident Terms and Conditions for a CCG Funded Stay.
