Daily activities and entertainment are a core part of our quality care at The White 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, and we have a close relationship with the local school.
Some of our regular activities include:
- Tea parties
- National fundraising days
- Arts and crafts
- Pamper days
- Sing-along afternoons
- Annual events
- Coffee morning outings
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 focus on providing residents with what they want, and we are confident we can cater to every specific requirement. We also hold a monthly residents meeting where residents can become actively involved in the menu and our Chef is always trying new recipes alongside the traditional foods and dishes.
Our chefs and nutritional leads fully assess all dietary needs, including likes and dislikes, allergies. special diets, through to preferred portion sizes and mealtimes.
Situated in the pretty town of Beccles on the banks of the River Waveney, The White House is located close to the town centre in a quiet and peaceful area. Accessible from London via the A145 and A12 roads, it lies just 16 miles away from Norwich and 33 miles from Ipswich.
Beccles is a charming market town which is well worth a visit. Once a Saxon fishing port, today the town boasts picture postcard riverside houses and historic streets filled with shops and cafés. Places of interest include Henstead Exotic Gardens, Beccles Public Hall and Theatre and the Beccles and District museum.
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.
The White House provides residential care on a short or long-term basis within its 31 rooms spread across two floors. Offering spacious rooms with en-suite facilities, all the rooms are decorated to a high standard and are exceptionally well furnished.
We encourage our residents to bring items of their own furniture and possessions to complement those already provided and to help make their room an individual retreat.
