Danforth Care Opens Third Care Home in Norfolk

Danforth expands across Norfolk with a third 3rd opening in the county in the last 18 months. Coronation House in Thetford joins Heath Lodge in Holt and Broadlands Lodge in Ipswich already up and running in Norfolk.

The latest Danforth Care Home opened its doors to the public on the 10th of May, with Coronation House opened officially by Mayor of Thetford Councillor Chris Harvey with a ribbon cutting ceremony. The opening has created a further 60 jobs for the area, bringing the total number of Danforth jobs in the county to 180.

All three care homes have been designed to be very ecofriendly, with 80% of the available roof space lined with solar panels, and the homes making their own electricity, and selling what they don’t need back to the grid. The buildings also operate without gas and are A rated for energy, with an underground system running miles below the care homes to heat the home’s hot water, provide underfloor heating and air cooling as a welcome additional bonus for those living at the homes.

The Home Manager Teresa Burgess has a wealth of experience in the care industry, working her way up the ladder from care assistant to manager.

Teresa says: “My vision with Coronation House is to cultivate a relaxed, homely atmosphere which feels like family for all residents and visitors alike. It’s so exciting to see the doors finally open and to see this vision become a reality. We will strive for residents to find purpose and enjoy a fulfilling experience at this next chapter in their lives.”
