Retirement Apartments in Ipswich

Welcome to Waterfield House. Situated in Hadleigh, Ipswich, our unique retirement home offers a space for individuals and couples searching for the perfect balance in senior living in Suffolk.

This beautiful, well established Ipswich care home has a limited number of easily manageable, self-contained, senior living apartments suitable for older people who wish to continue enjoying living independently, with the added benefit and peace of mind that 24-hour care support and access to a friendly and vibrant care home community is right on your doorstep.

Spacious Self-Contained Retirement Apartments

The light and spacious assisted living suites for couples and single persons offers a beautiful and modern, open plan living space. There’s plenty of room in the bedroom area for one or two beds, a comfortable lounge and dining area, a sizeable kitchenette plus a modern, private bathroom.

Our apartment suite tenants can enjoy a generous all-inclusive package which encompasses cleaning, laundry, meals, activities and our CQC monitored person-centred care services. We believe our apartments within our care home are a great option in comparison to perhaps a warden controlled home, general retirement home or remaining at home with the feelings of isolation or insufficient support.

Meet Our Home Manager

Amanda Thackery

My name is Amanda Thackery, the Home Manager at Waterfield House. I have worked at Waterfield House for around nine and a half years, working my way up from Care Assistant. As a Home Manager, I aim to be visible, approachable and a good mentor. I strive to enable a residents’ care journey to be as dignified as possible. I always encourage my team to perform to their very best ability, whilst also allowing them to learn and reflect. I find it important to build a good rapport with residents, staff, relatives, and professionals. Please feel free to approach me anytime. My door will always be open.
