Welcome to Woodlands Care Centre

Situated in a pleasant residential area, Woodlands Care Centre is purpose-built and carefully designed to support our residents to live happy, fulfilled and comfortable lives.

Our team cares for our residents with the same kindness and warmth shown to members of their own family. Working closely together, they provide residential care, residential dementia care, nursing care, nursing dementia care and end of life care.

Our care home

Located over three floors, our home includes light and airy, open plan lounges/diners as well as spacious en-suite bedrooms, and a variety of communal spaces such as our café and hair salon.

Our landscaped gardens are designed to be a welcoming place for people to relax on one of the patios complete with outdoor furniture, or to enjoy a spot of light gardening in the greenhouse and raised flower beds.

Activities & events

Supporting our residents to enjoy every day living at Woodlands Care Centre is a key focus for our dedicated team.

By getting to know each person, we are able to tailor our activities and events to their likes and dislikes as well as activities they may like to try.

No two days are the same here and, alongside our usual daily hobby-based activities, we also like to host events which are a little out of the ordinary.

In addition to an array of activities including art therapy, keeping fit with our chair-based exercises, baking, quizzes, movie afternoons and our knit and natter club, we also take great pleasure in welcoming visiting entertainers, schools, nurseries, therapy animals and groups to our home to enjoy spending time with our residents.

Our team and residents love regular day trips out in our own minibus to local garden centres, pubs, Hunstanton seaside for fish and chips and ice cream, and local places of interest such as Ely Cathedral. We also enjoy getting dressed up for our themed days throughout the year — complete with themed menus and decorations!

Dementia-friendly activities

Our team takes a considered approach to dementia-friendly activities and meaningful engagement — supporting our residents who live with dementia to still experience happiness, comfort and contentment.

With an in-depth knowledge of people’s life histories, we are able to encourage positive reminiscence and create a safe and supportive environment where people feel comfortable taking part in both familiar and new activities, trips and events.

We have our own Tovertafel Table which is an innovative magic table, designed for people living with dementia. Fun and interactive games are projected onto the table and the colourful objects respond to hand and are movements – stimulating both physical and cognitive activity and encouraging social interaction amongst our residents, team and visitors.

Food & nutrition

We are proud of the high quality of our meals here at Woodlands Care Centre that are carefully designed to be enjoyable whilst providing balanced nutrition to our residents.

They are lovingly cooked and prepared by our in-house catering team and follow the seasons.

Regularly rotating menus ensure we always have meals which cater to our residents’ likes and dislikes, including those who require modified or specialist diets.

To create a welcoming and pleasant atmosphere for our residents to enjoy their mealtimes, our tables are lovingly laid with crisp table linen, menus clearly showing what’s on offer and cutlery and dinnerware which supports their independence.

How to find us

Whilst the information on our website and in our brochure can give you a flavour of who we are and what life is like in our care home, it can never replace the experience of meeting us in person.

Visiting our care home will give you the opportunity to have a chat with our residents and team, enjoy a tour around the home and really get a feel for whether it would be the right place for your loved one.
