Ashfields Care Home in Rackheath, Norwich

Ashfields is a purpose built care home in Norwich, situated in a semi-rural location in a friendly village, with a high standard of décor, spacious courtyards, pleasant gardens and modern facilities. There are plenty of local amenities and we are in easy reach of the historic city of Norwich, the seaside town of Great Yarmouth and nearby beautiful costal resorts.

Ashfields Care Home offers high quality residential dementia care in a distinctive 'home away from home' environment. Our expert Memory Lane provides supportive care for people living with dementia and related challenges with memory. Our dedicated and experienced team is passionate about providing quality 24 hour residential care that affords the best possible alternative to those who are no longer able to manage at home. We empower our residents to regain independence, choice and freedom in their lives in a safe and comfortable setting. We also offer respite care and short stays, which you can now pre-book up to a year in advance.

Memory Lane is built upon personalised values to support individuals to thrive in an environment designed to stimulate and enrich their lives whilst giving families peace of mind and security.  Our dedicated team is experienced in responding to the challenges that dementia presents at every stage of the journey. 

These personalised values stretch across the board, not just in relation to the care we provide, but also in our hospitality, housekeeping, maintenance and administrative services.  We aim to improve the quality of life for each and every resident living in our nursing home.
