Care Home with Cinema and Coffee Shops for Residents Opens in Norwich
Broadlands Lodge, a purpose-built care home in Norwich has opened its doors, offering a range of social spaces for residents to enjoy a comfortable lifestyle.
Located close to picturesque Elm Hill, the home has been designed with residents’ lifestyles in mind, with opportunities to embrace the sensory garden, on-site beauty and hair salon, cinema, library and coffee shops to name just a few.
“Exceptional care is at the forefront of everything we do, and Broadlands Lodge will be a true asset to the community in Norwich. We’ve designed the home to be a comfortable, safe and authentic space for residents to live their lives, enjoying everyday activities such as going to a coffee shop or getting a book out of the library” says Sotak Robinson, Care Home Manager at Broadlands Lodge.
The home, which has 66 rooms, each with en-suite wet room facilities, along with smart TVs and mini fridges, is designed to be spacious, safe and comfortable for each and every resident.
Within one inclusive fee, the home also offers the opportunity for residents’ families to come and enjoy daily activities, as well as restaurant quality food cooked by the team’s on-site chefs, with no extra charges.
“It was important for us to ensure the space feels like home for every resident, and that means having their family visit and enjoy their lifestyle with them. Whether it’s nipping to the coffee shop or taking part in one of the daily activities on offer, we welcome relatives to come and enjoy quality time with their loved one”, says Sotak.
Empowering their residents to make their own choices and feel supported and valued is at the heart of the Broadlands team, as Sotak says “we deliver care which is respectful of every resident. Through person centred care, we recognise each individuals’ ambitions and respect who they are, and the life they lived before joining us.”
Broadlands Lodge regularly host events, with the last one occurring in February. The event saw family, friends and prospective residents all enjoying a day of activities including live music, a photo booth and snacks from the on-site chef.
