Life at Exning Court

At Exning Court, you choose the lifestyle that suits you.

In the morning, we’ll give you a call to check you’re okay, or pop by to drop off your newspaper. After breakfast in your apartment or the restaurant, you might choose to meet friends in one of our lounges or communal areas, 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, you could pop into Exning village and join in the many activities such as the monthly film night, or visit Newmarket for a spot of shopping or lunch.

In the afternoon, you might join us in the lounge for one of our regular social events, or you could take part in a quiz, visit the onsite hairdresser, or relax in our peaceful gardens. 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.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is the national independent regulator of all health and social care services in England.
