We are small enough to treat everyone as an individual yet large enough to be able to offer a wide choice of activities and outings.
Home care services coming soon…
Responding to Covid-19 – friends and family can now visit their relatives but with restrictions, please read the following for more info.
We are a family-owned residential care home situated in the North Norfolk market town of Fakenham. We specialise in dementia care, residential, respite and day care.
Woodspring House is a Georgian town house of character. It starts life as a family house and then in the 20th century had various incarnations as flats and offices until it was converted into a care home in the early 1980s by the current owners’ parents. At that time the name was changed to Albany House.
We aim to employ genuinely caring people with a sense of fun and a real interest in caring for the elderly and those with dementia in particular. Uniforms and the barriers that they can create are out and we try to have an informal home from home feeling where the staff are often seen as extended family members.
Our home is specially adapted to make life easier for those living with dementia. The communal areas are on the ground floor and are all within easy reach of each other. There are clear signs to help with navigation and to help maintain independence and to avoid confusion and frustration.
At Woodspring House we realise that moving a loved one to a care home is a very difficult decision. We hope that any worries or concerns you have will be quickly dispelled as they enjoy new opportunities and friendships, activities and outings, and the homely atmosphere that make us special.
We hope that you’ll soon feel as we do that moving in to a care home can be a positive step forward and will give your loved one the best possible chance of enjoying a happy, active and carefree life. Relieved of the day-to-day burden of caring can also allow you . . .
We recognise how difficult and distressing it can be caring for someone with dementia at home. Coping with constant physical challenges and the worries and emotional distress of seeing a loved one changing and becoming a different person can be quite overwhelming . . .
