Meadow House is situated in the Georgian market town of Swaffham in Norfolk. It is a purpose built, single storey home that was opened in 1989 and has built up an enviable reputation in both the local and wider community for outstanding care and is rated Outstanding by the Care Quality Commission. The home has a lovely mix of residents ranging from 20-82 years.
Extended recently, it has been sympathetically designed to offer a range of single rooms, a welcoming reception area, large lounges, dining room and a separate Activities Centre, all of which are available for our residents and their guests to enjoy. There’s lots of laughter within the home and residents are always the number one priority.
Daily activities and entertainment are a core part of our quality care at Meadow House. We pride ourselves on offering a diverse, enriching range of weekly activities and entertainment allowing residents to continue to relish in their favourite hobbies and pastimes or to try out something new entirely.
We involve residents in the planning of our weekly activities timetables and offer one-to-one bespoke and tailored opportunities as requested. We’re also passionate about keeping our homes and residents at the heart of the local community, working closely with community groups, schools and other community connections to keep residents involved in local activities.
Some of our regular activities include:
- Arts and craft
- MS charity week
- Trips to town
- Family events
- Church services
- Local school visits
- Theme days
- Pampering sessions
Dining is an essential part of the care package we provide to our residents, not only from a general health and wellbeing perspective, but we believe residents should be able to enjoy eating what they want, when they want.
Our chef will meet anyone’s needs and we have a slimming club in-house for those residents who may look to lose weight. Residents’ requests are met and the chef has lots of new ideas, providing buffets and cakes for special occasions.
Our chef fully assesses all dietary needs, including likes and dislikes, allergies. special diets, through to preferred portion sizes and mealtimes. Our catering team prides itself on producing food of the highest quality, using local suppliers to create fresh, homemade dishes each day.
Located just outside the pretty town of Swaffham in Norfolk, Meadow House is a 10 minutes walk to the town centre and amenities. Visitors to the area can enjoy a visit to the garden centre, historical landmarks and a variety of local pubs. The nearby towns of Castle Acre and Kings Lynn offer plenty more attractions.
The health and wellness of our residents is very important and we work closely in partnership with local health and wellness professionals to ensure every resident is able to lead a full and enriched life. We are able to arrange visits to chiropodists, opticians and other services if and when it may be required.
Our visiting pod in the garden, with its two entrance points, protective Perspex screens, intercom system and a nurse call button, allows us to safely facilitate visits from friends and relatives when our infection control procedures prevent us from welcoming visitors into the home itself.
Arranged over the ground floor, our 38 bedrooms can be personalised to make them a real home-from-home, and residents are able to enjoy a selection of lounges, dining rooms and well-kept gardens for relaxing, socialising and entertaining.
All of our bedrooms are provided ready-furnished with the essentials for instant comfort, and we happily encourage our residents to bring their own treasured furnishings and belongings if they would like to do so.
Amongst our range of well-equipped areas and facilities, there’s always space for quiet contemplation, or for enjoying the company of kindred spirits, and for relishing in interests and pursuits.
Our beautiful gardens, bordered by flower beds, offer an al fresco setting to enjoy anything from exercise to taking tea.
