The Martins

★★★★Outstanding

Location and contact details

Vinefields, Bury St Edmunds, IP33 1YA
www.mha.org.uk/ch51.aspx01284753467

The Martins was completely rebuilt in 1999. The original home was one of twelve built or adapted by MHA during the 1960s. This was a period in which possibilities for new homes were emerging throughout the country, while the organisation’s income meant that it was well able to respond to the enthusiasm for such facilities.

Nowadays, The Martins stands in its own grounds, with many en suite rooms looking on to the historic Abbey Garden ruins and the River Lark. Residents can make use of a purpose-built hair dressing salon and a small internal courtyard. In May 2006, the home’s registration changed in order to accommodate increased community dementia needs. It established progressive new places for 22 residents with various types of memory loss.

However, residents at The Martins are not only supported by its staff and state-of-the-art facilities. The home has volunteers from all over the Suffolk area who assist staff daily to provide the best possible care and support for residents. Many also help in the day ime with group and one-to-one activities. It is a family of residents, staff and volunteers who together make The Martins a special place to live.

Privacy and independence, friendship and support - 24 hours a day

The Martins offers care and comfort, compassion and friendship. At the heart of all we offer is our assurance that you will be treated with the respect and dignity that we all deserve, and if you need anything at all, we’re here to help, 24 hours a day.

Whether in the privacy of your own room or relaxing in the company of your friends and neighbours, we will support you to spend your time doing the things you enjoy. Landscaped gardens invite you to appreciate the fresh air, or tend the plants, if you wish.

Meal times are a special part of the day for you to savour tasty food, freshly cooked by our chef to suit you and any dietary needs. And, of course refreshments are available throughout the day for you and your visitors, who are welcome at any time.
