Welcome to North Court Care Home
You'll find North Court close to the town centre of historic Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.
Here our team of experienced registered nurses is supported by highly-trained care assistants to provide person-centred care, around the clock.
To meet individual needs, we provide different levels of nursing care. We offer specialised support for people with dementia; and for the frail and elderly, including those with Parkinson's disease and motor neurone disease; and we provide palliative care.
Our home is set in its own pleasant gardens, including a sensory courtyard, and an area which is home to chickens, ducks and bantams. We also have rabbits and guinea pigs. People living here love to spend time with their relatives in our paved sun terrace.
Inside, the property is tastefully decorated and has TV lounges as well as several quiet sitting rooms. All bedrooms have TVs and great personal-safety features; most have fine garden views.
Life at North Court Care Home
Our dedicated activities coordinator ensures each person living here has something stimulating and enjoyable to look forward to. They encourage individual hobbies and interests, and group goings-on too.
There's always a varied and interesting programme, and we take particular pride in the activities and sensory stimulation we offer to people with dementia.
When mum was sent out of hospital the doctor advised that she was at the end of her life. However she has lived at North Court for three years now and I attribute this to the care which she receives there. All the staff are very attentive to her and having a nurse on site ensuring that any medical issues are quickly addressed. She receives the best of care at all times.
The staff and management that work in this home are amazing,they are so kind and they really do take the time to get to know the people who they look after.The management are the best they do every thing in there power to make this a lovely home for our parents, so pleased I choose this home for my mum
I can now recommend this home, as there is a marked improvement, in the atmosphere, in the staff, the garden and in all a very good place to now recommend to anyone that asks.
My 92 year old mother has been resident at North Court for two years. Physically unable to do anything herself and suffering from Dementia, the care staff have given her has maintained her general health and skin integrity. The warm friendly care extended to both of us in making the very best of a heartbreaking situation.
My brother and I are very satisfied withy the level of care given to our mother. She has been a resident in North Court for over 5 years and had severe dementia (Alzheimers). The pastoral care and love shown to mother by the staff is excellent. The food variety is very good too, mother now eats cabbage, onions and a variety of things she refused to eat before moving to North Court. Some of the fabric of the building may be a bit tired bur the loving care shown is excellent.
I can't find words to show my grateful appreciation to all members of staff at North Court for their dedication, loving care and support to my wife Joan.
My husband has been cared for at North Court for more than 7 years and has always been treated with respect and great kindness. The staff really take the trouble to get to know each resident, and I and the family are always made welcome whenever we visit. I would have no hesitation in recommending this home as a wonderful example of great care.
Staff are excellent, they treat residents with dignity and care. They give mum a lot of support and affection which mum loves. Mum feels very safe and secure here and is a lot less anxious than she used to be. The activities here are great thanks to Sharon who's employed as a full time activity lady, lots of arts, crafts and games which my mum loves to do.
My mother in law was very happy here and her care was second to none. The staff were always polite and helpful and treated us as friends. I wouldn't have wanted her to spend her final months anywhere else. Would highly recommend.
North Court is staffed by very caring and considerate staff, always showing respect to my mother. She has been here for the past seven years and I am very satisfied generally with the care and attention she has received. The office staff also deserve a mention, especially Carol, Sharon, Chloe and the other carers are all very good and I appreciate health updates from Rossell and Glossie.

Four Seasons Health Care were finalists in nine categories at this year’s LaingBuisson Awards, and at the awards ceremony on Wednesday 15th November, the organisation was awarded with a well-deserved award.
The LaingBuisson Awards recognise and celebrate industry excellence and innovative services in the public, private and third sectors.
Four Seasons Health Care scooped the award in the ‘Nursing Practice’ category in recognition of the innovative approach to the advancement of nursing knowledge and nursing education within the care home sector.
Our Care Home Nursing Journal (CNJ) along with our individual Nursing Twitter channel (@FSHCNurses) won plaudits with the judges for being totally unique within the care sector.
Furthermore, there was a recognition of the achievements of the front-line nurses who have written articles, presented at conferences, won scholarships and been finalists at numerous nursing awards in the past 12 months. Again, these achievements are unique within the care sector.
Joanne Strain, Head of Nursing, said: “This is a terrific result for Four Seasons Health Care and real recognition of our growing influence amongst care home nurses in the UK. This is only the start of our journey and I want to dedicate this award to all our tremendous nurses across the FSHC family”.
Carol Cousins, Northern Ireland Managing Director, also commented on the award success. She said: “This award is recognition for inspirational nurse leaders in creating the first clinical nursing journal in the independent care home sector – well done to all involved”.
While CNJ editorial board member, and Clinical Lead Nurse of Cameron House Care Home in Bury, Craig Priestley stated: “I’m so proud we won – the CNJ is one of the best learning resources we have for Four Seasons Nurses. It has shaped and improved nursing practice and helped to improve quality of life – well done to all involved in its production!”
If you’d like to take a look at the award winning journal, it’s available on the Four Seasons website in the publications area.

Residents, relatives and the care team at North Court Care Home in Bury St Edmunds have been busy raising both money and awareness for a variety of organisations.
On the 21st September, the home did something special to mark World Alzheimer’s Day. The residents enjoyed a morning of sports followed by a variety show in the afternoon. The team set up an information point in the reception where visitors to the home were encouraged to find out more about Alzheimer’s.
Ieleen Belen, Home Manager, said: “The Alzheimer’s Day was a great success. We had lots of positive feedback not only from residents and their families but also visitors to the home who wanted to understand a little bit more about Alzheimer’s. It was a good way for us to help raise awareness about Alzheimer’s and the help that is available out there.”
A week or so later, the home celebrated the Macmillan Coffee Morning event, which saw a variety of bakes being enjoyed by everyone. The day was a huge success with £200 being raised for this good cause.
Ieleen Belen, Home Manager, added: “'We are so fortunate for all the support we have had and it is so nice to see our tearoom so busy!”
