This friendly and caring residential home has been specially designed with older people in mind and caters for people from all walks of life. Established for more than seventy years, Corton House - while providing care for the less able - encourages residents to be as independent as possible. All residents are recognised as individuals with their own needs and requirements.
Address: Corton House, City Road, Norwich, NR1 3AP
Maria, our Activities Coordinator, organises a programme of social activities such as games, musical evenings and parties.
She also arranges outings - some attended have been an art exhibition, garden centres, theatre and a boat trip. She has also involved pupils of the 6th Form from the Norwich School and Notre Dame High School who visit frequently to volunteer. Maria is also a qualified yoga teacher and holds regular exercise sessions for Corton House.
Musical therapists come in regularly to sing and play instruments.
Over the past few years we have been fortunate to work with Norwich Arts Centre and two artists have worked with our residents, assisted by local sixth-formers.
An important part of providing good care includes varied and nutritional food. All our meals are prepared and cooked in our kitchen using fresh meat, fruit and veg from our local reputable suppliers. Our kitchen team has had a local authority 5 star hygiene rating for the past five years.
Dietary needs can be catered for and food is prepared to suit the changing needs of our residents. A vegetarian option is always available. We serve morning coffee, afternoon tea or ice creams when it is hot and bedtime drinks. We also have tea and coffee making facilities in the tea room on the first floor.
We like to make meal times a social occasion but appreciate that not everyone will wish to sit with others. Residents may take a meal in their room if this is their choice.
Our residents’ bedrooms are their own private place and we encourage residents and families to make this their own space. Many residents bring in pictures and even their own furniture to make their room truly homely. Residents’ own rooms have ensuite facilities, many with walk in showers, all rooms are equipped with emergency call facilities and personal television and telephone points if required.
All our rooms are easily accessible with easy wheelchair access throughout the building and with lift access for those on the first floor.
A worship service is held every Wednesday at 10am and alternate Sundays for those who cannot attend their own church.
