Welcome to Courtenay House Care Home
Courtenay House Care Home offers different levels of care to suit a range of needs, including long term nursing and residential care, or shorter respite stays. The home has well trained, attentive care staff supported by registered nurses, providing a high standard of care 24 hours per day.
Situated close to the market town of Fakenham, Courtenay House was formally a traditional farmhouse which has been carefully modernised and extended. It is in the rural village of Tittleshall in its own gardens, with views overlooking farmland. Residents can enjoy spending time in the enclosed courtyard overlooking the aviary, the communal lounges, the quiet lounge or their own room. The fully furnished rooms provide comfort and residents are encouraged to personalise these to meet their individual needs.
Life at Courtenay House Care Home
We have a dedicated activities coordinator whose aim is to provide stimulating group and individual activities for residents.
This may include quizzes, games, trips to local places of interests, arts & crafts and reminiscence. The home is also visited weekly by two local PAT (Pets As Therapy) dogs which everybody thoroughly enjoys. Residents thoughts are regularly sought to ensure activities are meaningful and relevant.
Our home has established links with local groups including playgroups, the Brownies, churches and local schools who are always welcome visitors. Our nutritious home cooked food is prepared by our chef, and varied diets can be catered for.
My mother has been in Courtenay House for 2 and a half years and has been wonderfully well looked after. However in the last few weeks my mother had a major stroke and the care has been exemplary. She died in the home on 7th September. The care in her last days could not have been improved upon. They looked after everything right until the end. They also looked after me, I never felt I was on my own. A great home.

Friday 16th June marked Care Home Open Day, a day that actively encourages people in the local community to pop into their local care home and find out what’s going on.
The theme for this year’s open day was friendship, and Four Seasons homes and their local community certainly forged some long lasting friendships with their local communities through a variety of different events.
The events included:
- The Prince’s Trust heading into Kingsmead Care Home in Swindon sprucing up the garden
- Ty Eirin Care Home in Port welcomed in local school children and councillors for a fun filled afternoon
- A Jazz band kept everyone entertained in Pontypridd at Ty Gwynno Care Home
- It was a more sleepy affair at Whittington Care Home in Chesterfield as the team turned up for work in the PJs before having lots of fun with residents, relatives and visitors to the home
- Music and dancing was definitely on the cards for many of our homes as Benarty View Care Home in Kelty, Gotton Manor Care Home in Taunton, Benholm Care Home in Forfar and Laurels Lodge Care Home in Woodside, all had musical entertainment (and an assortment of other activities) for their guests
- Campsie View Care Home in Glasgow had their own petting zoo for everyone to enjoy
- The Laurels Care Home in Hetton-le-Hole held a country and western themed day which everyone thoroughly enjoyed
- Jazz was the music of choice at The Cedars and Larches Care Home in Ilkeston’s festivities.
- Redwell Hills Care Home in Consett, remembered the friends they’d sadly lost and released some balloons with messages in their honour.
The photos you can see above are just a snap shot of what happened at our homes during Care Home Open Day. It’s great to see from the pictures that everyone had lots of fun.

Residents from Courtenay House Care Home in Kings Lynn, enjoyed a Christmas trip out to the nearby market town of Fakenham.
John Watts, Home Manager, said: “The residents thoroughly enjoyed the trip to Fakenham. They indulged in a bit of Christmas shopping, and admired the Christmas tree display before enjoying the carol service. When they came home they continued to sing the carols that they’d heard. It was lovely and festive listening to them all.”

Courtenay House Care Home in Kings Lynn is celebrating the success of two of its Care Assistants after they successfully graduated from the Care Home Assistant Practitioner (CHAP) programme.
John Watts, Care Home Manager said: “Everyone here congratulates Donna and Esme on their success. We’ve all supported them every step of the way and it’s great to see their hard work pay off. They are a great asset to the care home, and provide fantastic support to the residents here. They’re a great part of the team. Well done again! I can’t wait to see you putting your new skills to use.”
The newly qualified CHAPs are now able to provide some general nurse duties, such as medication rounds. This benefit’s the home as it enables the nurse to deal with more complex issues.
Jo Vasey, Four Seasons Health Care Managing Director for the South East of England, said: “We’re all really proud of every single CHAP and nurse who mentors them through the programme. Here at Four Seasons we’re committed to developing our staff and this is one way we can do that. Well done again! All of your hard work and dedication has paid off.”
