At Cotman House Care Home, we provide residential care for up to 61 elderly residents in Felixstowe, Suffolk. Cotman House is built into the cliffside directly above the pier and faces due south, offering superb uninterrupted sea views of Felixstowe bay with all the sea traffic in and out of the Haven Ports.
Cotman House offers residential care – including trial stays, short stays and convalescent care, as well as long-term care.
Care is provided closely in line with each resident’s person centred care plan, this not only details specific healthcare needs, but also important events that have happened so far in their lives, and preferences in every day aspects of life. We appreciate the positive impact that family involvement can have in a residential care setting and we welcome active involvement and feedback from family members.
Cotman House retains the services of a local general practitioner, district nurses, chiropodist, optician and pharmacy to ensure that the professional nursing and healthcare team are supported to deliver continuity in every aspect of the care we provide.
We are conveniently located within easy level walking distance of all the amenities in the town centre– including a post office, shops, library, community centre and bus routes. We are also within easy reach of all the town’s medical facilities – with four different GP practices, a local general hospital and minor injuries unit.
Cotman House Care Home is named after the well-known and prolific architect Thomas W. Cotman (1847-1925) who designed many of the most famous buildings in Felixstowe. His works include the Railway Station, Harvest House (Felix Hotel), the Orwell and Bath Hotels, both Barclays and Lloyds Banks – plus many others.
Thomas Cotman also designed and lived in the original bungalow that forms the lower two floors of Cotman Lodge. He was the nephew of John Sell Cotman, the famous Norwich water-colour artist.
Cotman House Care Home has a reputation as being one of the top residential homes in Felixstowe and we operate an open visiting policy, so residents and loved ones can visit at the times that are convenient for them.
