The Red House is a non profit making residential care home for the elderly, delivering the highest standards of care in a happy friendly and homely environment, in which the dignity, privacy and independence of residents is respected and preserved. All residents receive individual care plans based on their own personal needs and requirements.

Conveniently positioned in the centre of the attractive market town of Sudbury, the magnificent Georgian listed building sits proudly within an acre of beautiful and well-maintained gardens, which are surrounded by an enchanting curved red brick wall. The Red House offers a secluded and truly idyllic setting for our residents to enjoy.

Our beautiful home dates back to the 16th Century, and is one of the finest houses in Sudbury. It has an incredibly rich and interesting history that we enjoy sharing with our residents and visitors. More about the history of our building can be found here.

We continue to follow the regularly updated government guidelines

* All residents have now received their second vaccination and 99% of staff have received at least their first vaccination

* All staff and residents are routinely tested every week

*Designated infection prevention and control lead and enhanced cleaning

* Full supplies of PPE

* Social distancing in place

* Safety measures for new residents


As from 17th May residents are now able nominate up to 5 named visitors. To reduce the risk of infection they should have no more than 2 visitors at a time or over the course of one day and all visits inside the home will continue be supported by testing and wearing PPE.

We understand how important it is to stay in contact with family and friends and we are still welcoming visits in our external visiting room.We also have ipads that can be used to video call so you can keep in touch.

Residents continue to be able to visit their family’s garden or take walks in parks or public gardens & will not have to isolate when they return. Residents should be accompanied by either a member of care staff or their named visitors and continue to follow the government guidelines of washing hands regularly, keeping social distance and remaining outside.


We are still running daily activities to ensure that resident’s hobbies and interests are supported and  we are taking measures to ensure that we do this safely.
