Life at the Maple Memory Centre

Delivering premium memory care in Suffolk

The Maple Memory Centre is a specialist care centre located within Brandon Park Nursing Home.

Brandon Park House is a beautiful Grade II Listed country mansion originally built for the Bliss Family in c.1830. The House has had an interesting and varied history with the original owner of Brandon Park, Edward Bliss, holding the position of High Sheriff for the county of Suffolk. Edward bliss was an influential businessman and amassed a great fortune by the manufacture of gun flints during the Napoleonic Wars, before his death in 1845.

The property stayed in Bliss family ownership until 1903 when it was first sold to a private individual. In 1936 the property changed hands again, this time to the Forestry Commission, who passed the property to Suffolk County Council. In 1982, the house was separated from the gardens and was converted into a luxury hotel. The house remained as a hotel until 1992, when it became a nursing home.

Today, Brandon Park stands in two acres of formal gardens and is surrounded by a further 32 acres of beautiful gardens and mature woodland owned by Suffolk County Council and operated as a public open space. In fact, Brandon Country Park is now one of Suffolk’s most popular public assets, with over 180,000 visitors annually. Many of the original features of the house and garden have been preserved for the enjoyment of the residents and visitors alike. The Nursing Home offers premium long term, convalescent and respite care in a stunning facility.

Brandon Park is bordered by the magnificent Thetford Forest, which offers a multitude of wonderful outdoor experiences. In addition, Brandon Park sits adjacent to The Elveden and Euston Estates and Center Parcs holiday resort.

  • Regular days out
  • Community and charity events
  • Various groups
  • Games and puzzles

Daily life at the Maple Memory Centre is a mixture of enjoyable social events and peaceful relaxation and strives to maximise independence for those living there.

In the Maple Memory Centre, we give people back daily, independent activities they were once used to. We put meaningful things in their hands, whether a broom to sweep the floor, or a trowel to weed the garden, or a paintbrush to create a picture. Giving people something to hold that connects them to their own life experience can help connect people back to the wider world again.

Our methods are firmly based on ‘Montessori methods for care’, which aim to promote a non-clinical and homely feel. Staff known as ‘Homemakers’ support those living in the Maple Memory Centre and help to maximise their independence and find real purpose and joy in each day.

The Homemaker may accompany family members to the kitchen to make a cup of tea and butter some toast, or enjoy a game with them whilst listening to the radio and singing along.  There are no set activities because everyone joins in and the day is full of meaningful things, whether pottering in the garden, baking some cakes or enjoying a story together.

Our meals are freshly cooked, nutritionally balanced and served in gorgeous surroundings to encourage residents to enjoy their mealtimes.

We look to the seasons to inspire change in our menus and take care to prepare dishes that reflect food our residents have been used to enjoying throughout their lives as well as encouraging residents to try something new!

We cater for a variety of dietary requirements and benefit from staff with training (up to degree level) in nutrition, who work closely with the care and catering staff to ensure good levels of nutrition are maintained. Food can be enjoyed in your own room should you so choose.
