About Us

Our home is set in 22 acres of beautiful gardens and woodland. The main building is Georgian and was previously used by the charity Mencap as a home for people with learning difficulties. We acquired the building in December 2008 and have since completely updated it, but have striven to maintain the original features where possible.

Burlingham House is easily accessible, and is situated just off the A47- 10 minutes drive from Norwich and 15 minutes from Great Yarmouth. We encourage the family and friends of our residents to drop by and visit as regularly as they can. They do not need to make an appointment, nor to telephone in advance.

New features include a dedicated dementia unit with its own secure sensory garden, en-suites to all the bedrooms, and new central heating systems. Other changes include the installation of two lifts, a medical room where residents can go if they feel unwell or can be seen by the dedicated doctor, a hairdresser and a new kitchen.

High standard of care

Our staff are fully trained to provide professional and respectful care of a high standard. All residents are treated as individuals and receive a personalised care plan which is identified and adapted to their specific needs. The identity and independence of the resident is upheld at all times and all staff are intrinsically trained to respect the individual’s rights, privacy and dignity.
