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 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.
Woodside House has a dedicated Memory Lane Community that provides a safe, homely environment for people living with dementia, which has been designed following these guidelines ensuring the care we provide supports residents’ freedom of choice. We aim to maintain their life-skills, improving their self-esteem and helping them to maintain and develop their independence while they are living with us.
Staff undertake specialist dementia care training developed by our team of Dementia Care Specialists and academic partners, the Centre for Dementia Research at Leeds Beckett University. Together they ensure our training programmes are informed by the very latest thinking. We ensure that the people we support feel comfortable and safe in their surrounding environment, helping ensure they live life with dementia to the full.
Choosing a care home for a loved one or friend who may be experiencing dementia can be difficult and we have created a guide to showcase how we ‘Enrich the lives of people living with dementia’ in our care home.
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.Read more

The dedicated and experienced team are passionate about providing quality care to each individual living at the home.
Hi, my name is Elena and I am the General Manager here at Woodside. Welcome to our website, please feel free to contact me to talk about what our wonderful home can offer.
I have over twenty years of experience as a nurse and I am very passionate about my work. I have always ensured that residents receive the best care and are treated with respect and dignity.
My vision is to create a 'home from home' environment, where residents are actively involved in organising events, making decisions, and planning their care.
Our door is always open to visitors who want to experience our family-friendly atmosphere and I am always ready to speak to anyone who is starting to explore their future care needs.Get in touch Meet my team
