Shipdham Manor dates back over 200 years and is situated in the village of Shipdham in Norfolk. The home has been tastefully extended and linked to the original coach house to provide facilities very much in keeping with modern day living.The home is situated in beautiful gardens, and is centrally located in the village so that residents can enjoy all of the nearby amenities.
The whole of the care team at Shipdham abide by the same motto – that care comes first and staff members will get out on the floor and help in any area if and when needed. Staff are dedicated to making sure residents continue to live a normal and fulfilling life and will spend time chatting to the residents and helping them to get involved in the day-to-day activities within the home.
Daily activities and entertainment are a core part of our quality care at Shipdham Manor. 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:
- Trips to the Norfolk Broads and seaside
- Themed meals
- Live entertainment
- Flower arranging
- Pottery making
- Crafts and colouring
- Group crosswords
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.
We have a resident of the day who will decide what they would like to eat on that given day. We also carry out surveys about the food and the meals – and we always have alternative options. A picture book helps some residents to choose and the kitchen always makes more than needed so there is plenty of choice.
Our chef fully assesses all dietary needs, including likes and dislikes, allergies. special diets, through to preferred portion sizes and mealtimes. The catering team prides itself on producing food of the highest quality, using local suppliers to create fresh, homemade dishes each day.
Shipdham Manor is situated in the heart of Shipdham, a few miles from the market town of Dereham. The home is situated next to the church and residents can use all the amenities within the local community such as the local post office, village store and pub.
Trips to the Norfolk Broads are popular amongst visitors to the area and residents, and Dereham and Watton are close by for shopping.
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.
Arranged over two floors, our 41 bedrooms can be personalised to make them a real home-from-home, and these include two double bedrooms ideally suited to couples.
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 exercising to taking tea.
