The teams at Prince George House care home in Ipswich work hard to get to know you and your loved one when they first join us.
Learning and understanding all we can about a new resident – helped by their family – is the only way we can provide the very best of care for them. Knowing what their favourite hobbies are enables us to plan activities that will appeal to them. Understanding the foods they love (and those they don’t) enables our catering team to plan delicious menus. No two people are the same, so no two people should receive exactly the same type of care.
Whether it’s baking, quizzes, sing-alongs or games, the lifestyle team at Prince George House work hard to make sure there’s something to suit everyone. We also understand that some residents may rather spend one-to-one time with their favourite carer, rather than take part in a socially distanced group activity. So whether it's a chat over tea and cake in the cafe or a game for two, we always work to suit the needs of each and every resident at Prince George House.
Everything we do at our care home is focused on ensuring that residents stay happy and healthy. Prince George House is close to the health centres and GP surgeries in Ipswich and we have developed strong links with local doctors and other healthcare providers. We are very much guided by the needs and wants of residents, and are finding new ways of working with our local health care providers such as offering Virtual GP visits to all residents.
