You’ll find us in a lovely country house just south of the city of Norwich. We’re surrounded by woodland and overlooking a picturesque lake. Regular visitors to the grounds include a herd of deer and a group of peacocks!

There’s plenty do see and do in nearby Norwich, including an excellent shopping centre, restaurants, pubs and parks. There’s also a castle in the middle of the city and a cathedral with the second tallest spire in England.

Enjoy activities

A resident at The Grove bakingThe home offers a range of activities for residents depending on what they want to do, including arts and crafts, quizzes, sports, fishing and lakeside exploring. We also hold events in the home, including themed evenings and Chinese and Indian cuisine nights. You’ll have the chance to be social, get creative or enjoy exercise — you choose.

Group activities aren’t for everyone and you might just want to do things on your own. If so, we can help. If you need support, one option is to find a volunteer to come along with you.

Whatever activities you’d like to do, you can always talk to one of our team about the different choices available to you.

Katrina's story

Katrina, a resident at The Grove‘My name is Katrina and I’ve been at The Grove for about a week. I was living at home before.

‘Moving here has been absolutely brilliant! One thing that has really changed is I have overcome my fear of using a hoist. I hated using it at home, but here it doesn’t scare me. It’s made a big difference because now I know I can get onto my commode with the staff’s help.

‘I also feel so much more confident and less nervous. I feel like I could do anything now if I put my mind to it.

‘The staff have been great and have encouraged me to try new things. Since I’ve been here I’ve been feeding myself, which I’ve never been able to do. I can’t read at the moment but I want to learn how to read. I think I’ll be able to do it here.’
