Woodside House Care Home in Norwich

Woodside House is situated on the outskirts of Norwich with great transport links to the A11 and bus routes straight to the city centre.

We offer a full range of services for the young physically disabled, frail older people and people living with dementia, who are supported in our dedicated Memory Lane Community. We have full 24-hour nursing care using our close contact with relatives and families to ensure that every care need is met, monitored with individualised and detailed care plans.

Our award-winning landscaped garden offers the opportunity to escape from the bustle of city life and enjoy a quiet drink with a loved one on one of our many wooden benches situated around the home.

Activities are another area we believe holds a strong part in the well being of a resident here at Woodside House. Whether it is art, gardening or flower arranging it is all undertaken to ensure our resident’s time here is enjoyable and relaxing.

Woodside prides itself on being forward thinking in regards to the care sector and we take it very seriously. The awards and recognition we have received certainly show the our dedication to our work. All awards we have won are on display so if you are interested come and have a look around our beautiful home and meet our fantastic staff.

Types of care

At Woodside, we provide person-centred nursing care services from the ages of 18+ and for individuals living with dementia. It is important to us that our care services are delivered in a way that celebrates each person’s individuality and helps them to maintain as much independence as possible, so we tailor our services and the day-to-day running of the home to meet the unique needs of each person. This could include personal one-to-one time with staff members when needed, regular visits from our chiropodist and hairdresser or tailoring our menu to meet any special dietary requirements.
