Residents from Clere House in Ormesby and Mildred Stone House in Great Yarmouth are settling into their new rooms at the brand new home on Peterhouse Avenue in Gorleston. They will be joined by the residents from Magdalen House over the next few days. In total, 67 NorseCare current residents will be moving over to the new home over a 2 week period.
Lydia Eva Court is a wonderfully designed home built over 2 floors with a beautiful reception and communal areas and gardens. It provides residential care for up to 88 people in 6 separate areas and specialises in caring for people who are living with dementia.
The design allows residents to live in small communities using recommendations from Sterling University. Residents have their own well-appointed room with large ensuite facilities and there are communal areas as well as a beauty parlour and Cafe for people to use when visiting the home.
Outside the home, the landscaped gardens have wonderfully smelling plants and flowers, designed to stimulate all senses. The pathways have been planned to avoid confusion and frustration for residents. There is also a large roof terrace with comfortable chairs and good shaded areas.
Meals are freshly prepared on site by our on site catering staff. Each area of the home has its own dining area where meals are served from the main kitchen. A varied seasonal menu is offered each day and residents are consulted about their preferences when menus are reviewed periodically. Special diets and individual requests are catered for, where possible.
The home took 18 months to build
