About UsTo be healthy as a whole, your mental health plays a vital role
Chantry House is our specialist nursing care facility which specialises in mental health. Our team of friendly and productive staff care for the needs of all our residents, ranging from illnesses such as Alzheimer’s to behavioral challenges and mental health needs.
Chantry House employs its own fully-qualified nursing care team. Registered general and mental health nurses work alongside specially trained care staff. All staff provide a friendly and welcoming care service in a comfortable and safe living environment. Staff support all residents with their individual needs, helping them to remain independent, combining one-to-one support with regular activities and experiences.
Set in extensive private gardens with family-style living accommodation the home spans across three individually-themed units: Kingfisher, Robin and Nightingale.
Mostly at ground level, all units offer private bedrooms, each with its own en-suite toilet, wash basin and walk-in shower, nurse call system and infra-red movement monitor. Residents with mobility challenges can transfer safely with ease thanks to ceiling hoists in all rooms and lounges.
Importantly, each suite can be personalised to allow you to turn Chantry House into your home. In addition to premium nursing care and well-appointed suites, Chantry House provides a beautifully maintained garden and easy access to the numerous shops and cafes in Saxmundham.
Chantry House fees include 24-hour premium nursing care, fine linens, In-house laundry, freshly prepared meals from our professional kitchen, and regular social functions.
The International Dysphagia Diet Standardisation Initiative (IDDSI) is a global standard with terminology and definitions to describe texture modified foods and thickened fluids used for individuals with dysphagia of all ages, in all care settings, and for all cultures. The IDDSI framework consists of a continuum of 8 levels (0-7). Levels are identified by text labels, numbers, and colour codes to improve safety and identification. The standardised descriptors and testing methods will allow for consistent production and easy testing of thickened liquids and texture modified foods.
We have the facilities to enable our residents to Skype or facetime their loved ones.
