About Care UK

We run over 120 homes and day clubs across the UK. We provide residential, nursing, dementia and end-of-life care for older people. As one of the UK’s leading care home providers, our goal is to help every employee fulfil his or her potential – with first-class training and support.

Mills Meadow fully opened in 2015, providing residential and dementia care for up to 60 residents. 

A new day club is also open on the same site, offering older people from the local area a change of scene, a chance to meet new people and to do fun activities in a safe and supportive environment.

The dedicated and professional team at our Framlingham care home focuses on enabling residents to enjoy a fulfilling life, whatever their needs and abilities. We work with you and your loved one to learn about their life stories, interests and preferences so that we can create personalised care and activity plans – and even menus – that ensure your loved one receives care that’s as unique as they are.
