Known locally as the Old Rectory Nursing Home but now renamed as the Barham Care Centre, it has an unsurpassed reputation for its homely atmosphere and friendly staff.

The home is situated on the edge of Barham village with shops and local amenities a short distance away.

As variety is the spice of life excursions are regularly organised to special events and places of interest.

Although smaller then the Baylham Care Centre with a capacity for 34 residents it offers the same levels of service, these include visits by: chiropodists, dentists, opticians, religious ministers, hairdressers and many more.

Review of Barham Care Centre

The care staff cared for my dad like he was most important, not just another seat at the dining table. he was clean and smelt lovely, shaved properly and his time was occupied in lots of ways by their trained people. Days out, games, singing, service by a local church and pottering in their little garden. Everyone was chatty to dad and smiling which he loved.

Review of Barham Care Centre

All staff gave the impression that nothing was too much trouble, even though they were clearly efficiently going about their work. All took the trouble to quickly learn family names and we were made to feel welcome and comfortable. We felt the standard of care for my dad was exceptional. My two sons who visited their grandad from time to time were surprised to find how lovely all staff were, as they only knew of care homes from the negative press some attract. Took all family wishes into consideration and quickly came to recognise individuals in their care.

I cannot praise the nurses and staff enough, they are all so friendly and compassionate towards all the residents. My mother is really happy there and I would recommend the home to anyone looking to be cared for 24 hours a day.
