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.
