Life at our home

Afternoon teas, film nights, music concerts and making dreams come true – if you can dream it, at Davers Court we can do it! In the summer we take rickshaws around the town, we go bowling and we love to get over to the seaside towns of Felixstowe or Southwold, which are an easy journey. Living here is whatever your loved one wants it to be.

Colleague, March 2022

Our Head Chef and her team have developed new recipes and enticing snacks and drinks to help maintain a good diet and hydration.  Our kitchen also provides scrumptious food for all the staff in the home to make sure we are all happy, healthy, and hydrated. Our kitchen truly is at the heart of our home! 

Colleague, March 2022

We would like to thank you all for taking such good care of our relative. She relies totally on all of your caring staff to help her have a peaceful and happy stay. It takes special people like yourselves to care for the residents. You are all stars.

Relative of a resident, June 2021

Very impressed with Davers Court staff, facilities, and communications. A very friendly team who are prepared to help in any way possible. We feel she is safe, treated with respect, warmth, and we would recommend all the team involved.

Relative of a resident, June 2021

I cannot fault the care for my mum or the communication - especially during Covid. The staff are amazing, friendly and approachable. I don’t think they can do more they are brilliant. With my relative they found that she was dairy intolerant and found alternatives like dairy free ice cream for her.
