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.

Hello, I am Kerry, the General Manager at Ashfields. I joined Barchester in 2017 and am an experienced member of the regional leadership team.
I have management qualifications and have many years' experience of managing care homes before coming to Barchester. I enjoy building relationships with residents and their families, responding to individual care needs and reassuring relatives that their loved one is in good hands at Maple Leaf Lodge.
I believe it is also vital for me to build good working relationships with all team members at our home, making sure they feel confident and supported in their roles. I like to guide staff by setting an example of how to provide care and support with the utmost dignity.
On a daily basis I seek to enrich residents' lives by making sure we offer a choice of activities, conversation and entertainment.Get in touch Meet my team
