Uvedale Hall, Ipswich, Suffolk

Uvedale Hall was named after the famous botanist, Robert Uvedale. The property is located in the Gipping Valley in the attractive Suffolk town of Needham Market. The home is convenient for visiting Ipswich and Stowmarket, and Needham Lake is nearby, a perfect location for walking. Whilst Robert Uvedale was renowned for propagating the Cedar of Lebanon tree, it is the hundred year old geranium plant in the resident’s conservatory that attracts everyone today. Residents can also enjoy the garden with its well maintained grounds and central fountain.

Uvedale Hall is one of the finest care homes in Suffolk, offering an unparalleled range of facilities and services in idyllic surroundings.

Uvedale Hall is an attractive Georgian home that has three elegant lounges, a south-facing conservatory and a magnificent staircase, winding round a sparkling chandelier. Accommodation is offered in single bedrooms all of which are with en-suite facilities and are tastefully decorated. Television and telephone points are provided. Rooms are fully furnished, however, residents are encouraged to bring items of their own furniture and possessions with them so that their room can become truly their own.

Care staff are trained to the highest standards and chosen not only for their skills but also for their warmth, friendliness and caring attitude. Staff are available constantly and provide professional care that respects the rights and dignity of the individual.

Residents are regularly assessed to ensure that their needs are fully met. Appointments can be arranged with a visiting optician, dentist, and chiropodist. The home has an in-house hairdressing salon that provides all the usual services plus manicures and hand massages. Catering staff provides delicious meals and snacks throughout the day, and special diets can of course be provided for.

    The Review Score of 8.800 for Uvedale Hall is based on 6 Reviews/Recommendations in the last 2 years.

  • The Review Score (maximum of 10) is made up of a Quality Score (maximum of 5) and Quantity Score (maximum of 5):

    • Quality Score: 5 Points are available for the average rating. For each review the care home / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The care home / service receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5. Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating. (Please note that the ratings of Very Poor and Poor have only been available since the change from Recommendations to Reviews on 7th July 2015.)

      The Quality Score (average rating) of 4.786 for Uvedale Hall is calculated as follows: ( (56 Excellents x 5) + (13 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 70 Ratings = 4.786

    • Quantity Score: 5 Points are available for the number of 'Positive Reviews' for a care home / service. A Positive Review is defined as:

      • Any Recommendation. Before the change from Recommendations to Reviews on 7th July 2015 all feedback was limited to Recommendations (ie positive comments only)

      The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

      1. 3 points for receiving the first Positive Review.

      2. 0.1 Point per Positive Review, up to a maximum score of 1 Point. (ie a care home / service requires 10 Positive Reviews to receive the maximum score of 1 point.)

      3. (Number of Positive Reviews ÷ number of registered beds) x 2, up to a maximum score of 1 Point. ie a care home / service has to receive a number of Positive Reviews equal to half of the number of registered beds to obtain the maximum score of 1 point. eg a care home / service with 40 registered beds has to receive 20 Positive Reviews to obtain the maximum score of 1 point.

        (For Adult Day Care Centres and Extra Care Housing which do not have a registered number of beds, 1) and 2) are replaced by the formula of 0.2 points per Review, up to a maximum score of 2 points. ie a listing needs 10 Reviews to receive the maximum score of 2 points

      The Quantity Score of 4.014 for Uvedale Hall is calculated as follows:

      1. 6 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 6 Positive Reviews = 0.600

      3. (6 Positive Reviews ÷ 29 Registered Beds) x 2 = 0.414

I must say both myself and my family were very impressed from the very start. My husband had been in West Suffolk Hospital for 6 days and was feeling quite low. After just one phone call, made by my daughter, the next day my husband was visited, and arrangements were made to have him at Uvedale Hall the very next day. He was collected from hospital, had a lovely hot meal on arrival, welcomed by a very friendly staff and taken to a pleasant room. His name and momento were put on his door. He enjoyed the 3 week stay, afternoon activities and entertainment and a very caring staff. I know and hope he will come for another respite care whenever needed.

On Deb 10th I had a very bad chest infection as I had no one to look after me, I phoned Uvedale Hall to see if they had a room after speaking to the manager, she assured me she had a room and I could go right away, I was met at the door by her and taken to my room in the lift by a very helpful member of staff and always made very welcome. I was there over Christmas had my meals in my room, my choice, Christmas day my table was laid with a pretty Christmas table cloth also a cracker. The visit from the doctors and medicines picked up is a great help. I found manager and staff very friendly and helpful.
