Life at Millbrook House

At Millbrook House, you choose the lifestyle that suits you.

In the morning, a local shop can deliver your daily milk or newspaper. After breakfast in your apartment or the restaurant, you might choose to meet friends in our lounge, or take part in one of our regular activities. At lunchtime, the restaurant serves delicious hot meals, or you may want to prepare lunch for yourself or for friends or family in your apartment.

If you fancy a change of scenery, Soham town centre is a 10 minute walk away and has a variety of amenities include shops, restaurants and pubs. Further afield, you could visit Ely and see the famous cathedral, or enjoy a spot of shopping in the historic city of Cambridge. 

In the afternoon, you could join us for one of our regular social events, take part in a game of bingo, or come along to Tea Club, Gardening Club or Knit and Natter. By evening you may want to take it easy after all the activity! If not, you can always join friends to watch TV, or for a chat, a game of cards or a mutual hobby.

I have lived at Millbrook House for some time now and I'm very happy. There is always something going on if you wish to join in, no need to be lonely.
