Woodstock Residential Care Home

Welcome to Woodstock Care Home in Norfolk, situated in the middle of the beautiful rural village of Gressenhall. Woodstock is located just four miles from Dereham town centre and in easy reach of the A47 for drivers. Those travelling by public transport can take the number 21 bus from Dereham to reach us.

Nestled in the heart of this close-knit, friendly community, Woodstock has strong connections with local groups, school children and neighbours. The entire Home is on the ground floor, with plenty of indoor and outdoor space for Residents to relax in.

The dedicated care and support team practice person-centred care, looking after Residents with a range of needs, including people living with dementia. Woodstock has a family atmosphere, with all Colleagues treating Residents with the utmost compassion. Here we empower Residents to live happy, meaningful lives in a safe, supportive environment.

Person-centred care

We approach Residents’ care holistically, looking after all aspects of their wellbeing, including physical, emotional, dietary and spiritual needs. It’s essential for us to work in collaboration with Residents and their loved ones, so they can decide on the type of care they want. Every Resident has individual needs, and it’s our job to meet them.

Residents can rely on us to regularly check in with them to ensure they are happy and comfortable in everything we are doing. Their voice is the most important one, and their requests and feedback shape everything we do. Mental wellbeing has a significant impact on physical health, so we make it our mission to ensure both are taken care of by our caring Colleagues.

Living life to the full

We may be based in a rural village, but we’re still a busy Care Home in Norfolk. There are plenty of daily activities, including musical and reminiscence sessions suitable for Residents living with dementia. Favourites include arts and crafts, music and dance, bingo, quizzes and pampering sessions, to name but a few.

The Home also hosts regular events including a summer and Christmas fete. We have visitors including an entertainer who comes regularly to perform Residents’ favourite songs on his guitar. We also facilitate trips out into the local area, there are plenty of well-loved beauty spots nearby for Residents to visit.

Dining and nutrition

Our dedicated chefs prepare everything on our varied, daily menu fresh on-site. We use seasonal produce, locally sourced where possible, to create a range of dishes for Residents to enjoy.

We ask for input and feedback from Residents, so we can ensure that their favourite foods are included, and popular dishes are served often. All dietary requirements will be taken into account, so Residents can be confident we will respect any cultural needs or personal choices they have.

The B Happie Mission

The B Happie Mission

Our mission to promote happy residents and happy staff is underlined by our groundbreaking ‘B Happie Charter’. We achieve these values by conducting person centred activities and events with a whole home approach, by recognising and appreciating the amazing work that our teams do and by prioritising mental health and wellness.

Electronic care plans

We always strive to innovate and use technology to enhance our provision of person-centred care. Our Home uses Electronic Care Plans which provide instant and secure access to care details and provide a thorough overview of support and activities. Using technology increases efficiency and enables our Colleagues to spend more meaningful time with Residents and improving the quality of interactions and care and support provided.

A message from our Manager

“I have worked in the care sector for over 20 years. I started as a care assistant and have worked my way up gaining experience and qualifications, I have been a registered manager for 15 years within various sized private homes.

For me this is not only a job but a vacation. I have a passion for making differences in people’s lives and for our residents to have a compassionate and high quality of care, and to always make sure that their wellbeing is being prioritized. My daily goal is to do my absolute best to make sure that they live a fulfilled life and they are being treated with dignity and respect.”
