  • Britten Court, Lowestoft, opened its doors in late 2014 to provide personalised residential and nursing care for older people.

    Britten Court provides specialist nursing and dementia care for up to 80 residents. A day club adjacent to the home also offers day care and respite facilities for local people who live independently in their own homes.

    Everything the dedicated team at Britten Court do is focused on supporting residents to enjoy a fulfilling life, whatever their needs and abilities. We work with each resident and their family to find out all we can about their life stories, interests and preferences.  We then create care and activity plans that will meet and exceed their needs.
