St Mary’s House is an elegant Georgian property, which has been suitably adapted to provide modern-day care facilities. The house is situated in the market town of Bungay providing easy access to all local amenities. Many rooms have delightful views over the Waveney Valley and surrounding countryside.
We believe we offer a friendly home with a family atmosphere, whilst providing the highest standards of facilities and equipment.
We aim to create a friendly Home with a family atmosphere and to preserve the quality of life of the people who use the service.
The home has adopted a Residents Charter of Rights. Our philosophy is based upon a belief that all people have the right to be treated as individuals. Whilst we require staff to work within basic guidelines and routines this must not institutionalise care. This will be monitored at regular intervals, in full consultation with all people, relatives, staff and visiting professionals.
The specialist needs of people suffering with Dementia will be met by our staff that are knowledgeable and sensitive to their needs. Staff are regularly sent on courses specialising in early and late on-set of dementia. The main tenant of care for these people is the maintenance of dignity, orientation in time and place, safe management of aggression and challenging behaviour and the maintenance and retrieval of skills pertaining to activities of daily living and communication. This is achieved by stimulation, interaction and a supportive environment for both residents and staff.
