The space and layout of Walcot Hall really sets it apart from other care homes. Set in beautiful and spacious grounds, the home has a purpose-built extension, large rooms with en-suites and patio doors leading directly outside.
Walcot Hall is run by a team of regular staff who are committed to always putting the needs of residents first. People love the social side of things at the home such as chatting, listening to music and enjoying the entertainment. There is lots going on and residents can choose to join in with as much or as little as they like.
Daily activities and entertainment are a core part of the quality care at Walcot Hall. 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’ve even had mini donkeys enter the lift and visit residents in their rooms!
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
- Donkey visits
- Poetry reading
- Musical entertainment and workshops
- Music and movement classes
- Board games
- Flower arranging
- Excursions to local attractions
Dining is an essential part of the care package we provide to our residents. Menus are seasonal and we also send out feedback forms to residents to give us ideas of what they like and what they would want to see on the table at mealtimes. We believe residents should be able to enjoy eating what they want, when they want – our kitchen is always open.
Our meal experience is excellent, with our chef and catering team working hard to create meals that are both nutritious and tasty and appeal to the needs and wishes of our residents. Residents at Walcot Hall can experience restaurant-style dining in our dining rooms, which overlook the beautiful countryside.
Our chefs and nutritional leads fully assess all dietary needs, including likes and dislikes, allergies and special diets, through to preferred portion sizes and mealtimes.
Located in a small hamlet adjoining the market town of Diss in Norfolk, Walcot Hall is very much a local home for local people. Served by good public transport links, the care home is ideally situated for visiting and enjoying family days out, both in Diss and its surrounding area.
Local attractions include Banham Zoo, Framlingham Castle and Bressingham Steam Museum and Gardens. The town centre is easily accessible and offers a selection of local cafés and pubs. There are also several garden centres close by.
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.
Every room at Walcot Hall has a stunning view. Arranged over two floors, all of the rooms overlook the lake, garden and surrounding countryside. The care home offers a selection of carefully designed and furnished single and double rooms with en-suite facilities and rooms can be personalised to make them a real home-from-home.
All of the 40 bedrooms are ready-furnished with all 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.
