Safe Visits

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.

Covid-secure visiting

Our number one priority is keeping Residents safe and connected with their loved ones. We have recently created a COVID-secure, indoor visiting space to ensure that Residents can socialise with their family and friends in warmth and comfort.

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

advinia health care

It’s my great privilege to work alongside my fantastic Colleagues at Woodstock. Every one of us is committed to making Residents feel part of our family, and we care for them as we would our own relatives.

We’re fortunate to have excellent support from the local community and volunteers, as well as having a second-to-none team of carers. Knowing that our Residents feel safe and supported with us, and that they are enjoying their lives, means a great deal to me.
