Our award-winning care offers a full range of residential, nursing and specialist dementia support, including trial stays, short-stay breaks and convalescence.

How we ensure the wellbeing of our residents

Rendlesham Care Centre is home to our residents and we never lose sight of that. The environment is light and spacious with a welcoming atmosphere and relaxing ambience that is carried through everything we do on a daily basis. A highlight of the home is its ‘Forget Me Not’ garden, which was specially designed to provide a safe and stimulating environment for elderly residents living with dementia.

Stirling’s Dementia Services Development Centre is renowned as the world leader in this field and its best-practice approach ensures that residents are able to move freely around the home, with bedrooms and communal areas appropriately laid out and clearly signposted to minimise disorientation.

Who to contact

Joanne Rix
Home Manager
0808 223 5531

As the manager of Rendlesham Care Centre I enjoy nothing more than meeting new people and listening to the stories they have to tell. Everyone is different and this should be reflected in the care they are given. I want to ensure that both the care teams and residents at Rendlesham are happy living and working here. Rendlesham is a lovely home with a real family feel created by the care team and residents that live and work here.

I have been a nurse for over 31 years working in both the NHS and Social Services, with a background in Learning Disabilities and mental health. However for the past 13 years I have worked in the community as an Area Manager providing home care to older people. Whilst working with social services I was involved in supporting people to move on from a care home into individual housing to meet their needs. This was my stepping stone to working in care homes.

Keeping a close relationship with the local authorities and doctor’s surgeries is very important. We continuously improve the lives of our residents through offering wide ranging activities and events  both in and outside of the home, involving members of the local community wherever possible.

I have lived in Brantham for over 20 years and have three grown up children who enjoy my passion for cake making. I get to see my youngest over the holidays on his return from University and enjoy visits from all three of my children.
