Risby Hall Nursing Home
Risby Hall offers nursing support to 34 residents. We also offer specialist dementia support if needed.
We practice person centred care enabling all of our residents the opportunity to thrive in long term support. We recommend that you visit us to see for yourselves the home we have created.
We are situated in the attractive village of Risby, three miles from the historic market town of Bury St Edmunds, offering a coffee shop and two public houses. Our home is warm and welcoming, retaining the features of the farmhouse from which it was converted.
All the accommodation is on the ground floor with level access throughout. We have qualified nurses 24 hours per day. and designated engagement, catering and housekeeping staff who support the caring friendly environment for residents.

Risby Hall Residential Home
It is said that first “impressions matter” and I can confirm that my first impression of Risby Hall made me determined to become part of this family after having worked in care for more than 20 years. Like many people, I find the odd stay in a lovely hotel can be a treat but I wouldn’t want to live in one. I like to live at home where I can be relaxed and where I am important to the other people there. I want to do what I want to do without worrying about how this looks to other people. These things would still be important to me if I needed the support of others and moved to a care home. I think most people would feel the same.
I and my colleagues at Risby Hall understand that moving home when you are not enjoying the best of health and fitness is something that most people would rather not do. Because we understand this we aim to make the process of moving as pleasant and reassuring as possible for you and your family and friends.
So if you choose to move to Risby Hall you won’t feel as if you are moving into a hotel because that’s not what we aim for. We sincerely hope that you feel you are moving to a second home. We don’t want to replace your past but we do want to become part of your family and your future.
