Baylham Care Centre, Ipswich, Suffolk

At the innovative new Baylham Care Centre, carers aim to offer unparalleled levels of service ranging from respite to long term nursing, from rehabilitation and physiotherapy to Dementia and holistic End of Life care.

Many of the facilities are new to this country. For example, there are wireless communications in each room that allows members of staff to talk to or summon anyone within the building, thereby saving valuable time. Also, they have the capability when the situation requires it to have residents remotely monitored by their doctor, who can determine what, if any, action should be taken. Time spent by staff with the residents is very important; therefore, they have installed many labour-saving systems to ensure this happens as often as possible.

Every effort has been made to cater for the needs of residents. This includes a wide range of accommodation, on and off site facilities, freshly prepared food to meet dietary requirements, relaxing surroundings with sensory gardens, themed reminiscence lounges and stunning panoramic views across the Gipping Valley.

Baylham Care Centre

When mum was taken to hospital for what we thought was dehydration, it came as a shock to be told she was at the end of her life. As well as the trauma of that news, we had the stress of finding a care/nursing home which would provide the most comfortable and stimulating environment for mum. We couldn't have asked for a better care home than Baylham. The design, fitting out, d├ęcor, and operation are all intended to create a friendly, homely environment. The staff are exceptional the care professional and dignified and we were treated as part of the Baylham family even past the end. All care homes, should be like this.

My wife has severe Alzheimer's over the last 18 months we have used Baylham for full respite care and day care twice a week have found the management, care staff and nursing staff to be 1st class, always ready with help and advice when needed. They always give a cheerful greeting and a cup of teas. The care home is clean, bright with lovely enclosed garden, They have even arranged cover if I fall ill.

All of the staff at Baylham behaved with care and compassion. They sought to involve my father in the numerous activities wherever possible and always treated him with dignity. I visited Baylham regularly over 4 months - at different times and days. The standards were always high. The facilities are excellent but most importantly the staff always treated residents with respect. They were very attentive to medical issues - such as the ulceration on my father's leg. I would have no hesitation in recommending Baylham.

My father-in-law was admitted to Baylham Care Centre at very short notice, late in the evening. He was very confused and upset when he arrived but the staff welcomed him, my husband and myself with understanding and kindness. They explained everything to us, taking care to make sure that my father-in-law was included in all conversations. The care given to him was excellent and he progressed well and quickly. By the time I visited him the next day he was already well on the mend. This is a beautiful care home, light, airy, and modern. There are plenty of staff, all of which seem very dedicated, and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone. My husband and I would like to thank everyone involved for the care they provided.

My wife suffered with MS for thirty years, the last ten years or so in residential care. The home she was in before Baylham ultimately proved unsatisfactory, and I was delighted to find an excellent home for her here. The staff were kind, considerate and caring, the facilities were excellent, the rooms are very clean and well maintained, the activities were plentiful and very inclusive to all. Sadly care homes of this standard are difficult to find. I recommend this one very highly.

I would recommend this home. In December my husband went for a week's respite. He was very anxious after having a bad experience in another home. The staff made us very welcome, my husband loved every day he was there said staff were very kind and gentle and is looking forward to his next stay in January. He suffered a very bad stroke in 2011 which has left him unable to walk. He is only 55years old and finds things very hard, but Baylham treats each person with care and dignity. Keep up the excellent work. Thank you to all the staff
