Healthcare Homes- Bank

Healthcare homes have 37 Residential and nursing homes spread across East Anglia and the South of the country. The business was launched in 2005 with the main objective to ensure residents receive the highest possible standard of care; where dignity is respected, talents and interests are encouraged and where life is lived to its fullest potential.

Our Home

Aldringham Court is a unique ‘art nouveau’ building set in three acres of well-maintained gardens and woodland. Surrounded by spectacular rhododendron bushes, the grounds abound in wildlife with doves, pheasants and even muntjacs. The spacious accommodation includes a beautiful conservatory overlooking the woodland setting, dining room and a quiet reading room. 

The home is situated in a beautiful location near Aldeburgh, home of Benjamin Britten and the famous Aldeburgh Music Festival. It is only two miles from the wonderful Suffolk Heritage Coast where residents regularly go for outings. Although ideal for residents wishing a quiet, peaceful location, the Home also encourages participation with the local community.
