The Gables has a warm and friendly atmosphere and is run by a team of staff who work hard to provide top quality care. The Gables has been open since the 1940s and is well established within the area. Residents are encouraged to enjoy the promenade and ‘take in the sea air’ and the splendid views of the North Sea.
Inside The Gables are several large spacious rooms with a wealth of architectural detail. Large lounges and tastefully decorated bedrooms allow residents to relax in comfortable surroundings with their family and friends. The grounds are a stone’s throw from the beach and include a sheltered patio, flower beds and a barbecue area.
Daily activities and entertainment are a core part of our quality care at The Gables. We offer a range of activities that are person centred and based on our residents’ individual needs. We encourage residents to continue pursuing their favourite hobbies and pastimes or to try out something new entirely.
Whether you are interested in ships, small boats or people, there is always something to watch at The Gables. 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:
- Giant iPad
- Art and craft
- Beach trips
- Indoor bowls
- Exercise classes
- Cream tea afternoons
- Reminiscence group
- Gardening and patio pots
- Theatre visits
- Annual fete held in our garden
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 pride ourselves on good traditional home cooking and we can cater for any diet. Our chef regularly chats with residents to help plan the menus and we keep a feedback book for residents to log their comments. We offer regular theme days mixed up with traditional foods so every resident can enjoy the things they like to eat.
Our catering team prides itself on producing food of the highest quality, using local suppliers to create fresh, homemade dishes each day.
The Gables and its gardens overlook the promenade at Gorleston, near to the towns of Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft. Located right on the beach, visitors and residents can enjoy plenty of beach trips and there is a lovely hotel opposite the home which serves afternoon teas as well as a theatre on the seafront.
Gorleston is a small town, but there are several shops which can be visited. Situated just three miles from Great Yarmouth with its long sandy beach, the seaside town is home to The Time and Tide Museum which traces local history, The Nelson Museum and the Sea Life Aquarium.
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 four floors, some of our bedrooms have sea views and can be personalised to make them a real home-from-home. Residents can also enjoy our patio and gardens for relaxing, socialising and entertaining.
All our 34 bedrooms are tastefully decorated and 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.
