Overbury House is situated in the village of Wroxham in Norfolk. The home’s aim is to provide a warm and homely atmosphere for residents where they feel comfortable and well cared for. The home is a period building, filled with light from its huge bay windows and it sits in its own landscaped gardens that contain mature trees, shrubs and a beach scene area.
In recent years, the house has been extended to provide tasteful, modern accommodation. The team at Overbury House are supportive and welcoming to everyone within the home. Everyone works closely together as one big team and the staff work hard to make sure the residents are always busy and happy.
Daily activities and entertainment are a core part of our quality care at Overbury 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:
- Flower arranging
- Pamper days
- Karaoke machine
- Arts and crafts
- Nintendo wii
- Oomph system
- Tennis & bowling
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 talks regularly with residents and families about what they like and don’t like and fully assesses all dietary needs, including likes and dislikes, allergies. special diets, through to preferred portion sizes and mealtimes.
We have a daily food menu, which includes breakfast, lunch and dinner. Mid-morning, afternoon and evening snacks and drinks are also served, and sandwiches, biscuits and other refreshments are available at any time of the day.
Our catering team prides itself on producing food of the highest quality, using local suppliers to create fresh, homemade dishes each day.
Situated in the village of Wroxham right on the famous Norfolk Broads, Overbury House has access to a wide range of lovely walks and boating trips. Wroxham village centre is easy to walk to and has a number of pubs and cafes to visit. Places of interest for residents and visitors include Wroxham Miniature Worlds and Wroxham Barns.
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 welcome visiting professionals such as GPs, chiropodists, opticians and can arrange visits to other professionals 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 two floors, our 48 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 in-house hairdressing and beauty salon provides the perfect sanctuary to keep our residents feeling their best, whilst our vast gardens, bordered by flower beds and mature trees, offer an al fresco setting to enjoy anything from exercise to taking tea.
