Care Homes in Bury St Edmunds

If you are looking for a residential care home in Bury St Edmunds, TrustedCare can help.

Nestled in the Suffolk countryside, Bury St Edmunds is a historic market town. Boasting Suffolk’s only cathedral, St Edmundsbury Cathedral, as well as a host of sites of historical and architectural interest, shops and a twice-weekly market, the town’s allure has not faded as the centuries have passed and its many delights are still enjoyed by people of all ages.

At TrustedCare, we are here to help you to find a care home in Bury St Edmunds that will feel like home. We understand that, for some, researching, refining and comparing homes can be a daunting challenge, even with the help of TrustedCare’s directory. If you would like help, get in touch with our Care Liaison Team. Each Adviser is trained, friendly and compassionate and on hand to help you to find a shortlist of homes that feel right. If you want, they can even arrange for you to view the homes that you have identified as most appropriate; all you need to do is turn up!

Understandably, the cost is a huge deciding factor when searching for care homes in Bury St Edmunds. The average cost of care in Bury St Edmunds is £1,112 per week but this greatly depends upon individual care providers. To find out if you are eligible for some funding support from your Local Authority, we recommend getting in touch with them to request a Financial Assessment.

By clicking onto the profiles below, you can check the specialisms to see which care types the homes support such as respite care and dementia care. Often, we get asked what the difference between a residential care home and a nursing home is; care homes have Carers on hand 24 hours, whilst nursing homes also have a Registered Nurse on duty round the clock.

We know that this time can be a stressful and emotional one and we are here to eliminate as much of that stress as possible, leaving care seekers to focus on their loved ones. We are confident that, with our help, you will find the right care home in Bury St Edmunds.
