Asterbury Place is an ‘outstanding’-rated care home where residents and colleagues are “like family”.
The team at our Ipswich care home were delighted to receive an overall ‘outstanding’ rating from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) in April 2019, with outstanding ratings for two of the five areas inspected (responsive, well-led).
A sense of belonging
We’re dedicated to enabling residents to enjoy a fulfilling life in a beautiful home where they can live each day in the way they wish, with dignity and respect. Indeed, our CQC report says: ‘The atmosphere in the home was warm and friendly with a sense of community and belonging.’
We’re a diverse home, with residents and colleagues from different parts of the world. However, our colleagues care for every resident like they would their own parent. "They give me a hug when they come in. They're like family," says one resident. We do whatever we can to help residents to feel special – learning words in a person’s native language, or cooking their favourite foods. This too is mentioned in our CQC report: ‘Menu consultation resulted in foods such as yams and green banana being available for people. This gave particular pleasure and comfort to a person who had enjoyed such food prior to moving to the service’.
Keeping busy in our Ipswich home
Our purpose-built care home in Ipswich has 80 bedrooms: each spacious and attractively furnished, with its own en-suite wet-room. Your loved one is welcome to bring their own possessions and items of furniture to make their room feel more homelike.
We organise an array of activities, entertainment, outings and events, from baking and dancing to pub lunches and seaside trips. Residents love animals, and our dog Martha is a big hit with residents. She loves welcoming the therapy dogs who visit, as well as relatives’ pets.
