Welcome to Eastlands Care Home
You'll find Eastlands Care Home in the quiet village of Taverham, just north west of Norwich.
Here we provide high quality 24-hour person-centred care for older people. We enjoy excellent relationships with the GPs, district nurses and all other professionals who visit the care home.
We offer a warm, safe and friendly environment, and support people in living as independently as possible.
Ours is a purpose-built care home, set in nearly two acres of grounds backing on to a golf course. We're just a short distance from shops and other amenities.
Inside there's a bright spacious feel and light decoration. All our bedrooms have nurse-call alarms, TV points, telephone points and fire-safety devices; and nearly all have en-suites. We love residents to personalise their rooms to make them more familiar and homely.
Life at Eastlands Care Home
Our activities coordinator organises a weekly schedule of pastimes, diversions and outings residents can join in if they choose to. This includes bingo, crossword afternoons, flower arranging, crafts, and film and games sessions. Residents are consulted on which activities they want to take place.
Outside entertainers visit, and we work very closely with the nearby community. The local vicar comes by to offer monthly communion, and at other times as residents wish. We also accommodate all other religions.
Our in-house shop travels around the home weekly, and residents can see the display and request anything at any time. The nearby library visits monthly, and newspapers are delivered daily.
The move from home to Eastlands was supported by the staff in a caring, sensitive and supportive manner.

On Monday 27th March 2017 Four Seasons scooped the ‘Flu Fighter Social Care Award’ at the prestigious Flu Fighter awards.
The Flu Fighter award celebrate the great achievements of flu teams and organisations who promote the importance of flu vaccinations to everyone in their organisation.
Four Seasons was shortlisted for the ‘Social Care Award’ after being nominated following the success of the internal Flu and You campaign. Before being presented with the award, Daniel Mortimer, Chief Executive for NHS Employers said: “Four Seasons Heath Care launched its campaign with the goal of reducing the occurrence of flu in its colleagues. They created leaflets and flu packs that provided details about the importance of the flu vaccination and how to get vaccinated. This worked really well and they had an extra 1,600 colleagues vaccinated, which increased uptake by 22% this season. Well done.”

Martin Murphy, Regional Manager for Anglia has been crowned Regional Manager of the Year for the South East of England in the Four Seasons Health Care Awards 2016 and is through to the national finals.
These are the 1st Four Season’s Care Awards and this year over 700 people were nominated for awards by care home residents, colleagues and visitors. All entries have been of a very high standard making the judging process a difficult one. However, a winner had to be chosen and the nomination for Martin demonstrated how he continues to make a difference and provide special resident experiences on a daily basis.
During the judging process for the Regional Manager of the Year award, the panel was looking at a number of different factors including the individual demonstrating exceptional leadership skills and the ability to prioritise the day to day challenges of the role. This individual has supported their homes and helped them to achieve the company’s strategic priorities whilst managing external stakeholders and keeping special resident experiences at the centre of everything they do.
Victor was nominated by a colleague. His nomination read: “Martin has a huge wealth of knowledge and is very passionate about the work he does. He always explains clearly what he wants you to do, ensuring that you understand every aspect before leaving the room. I’ve seen firsthand how Martin interacts with the care teams, residents and families and it is truly a sight to behold. He’s always willing to share his knowledge and support anyone through their care journey. I want to personally thank Martin for all the support he’s given my during my time here.”
As the winner for South East England, Martin is automatically through to the national Four Season’s Care Awards finals. He will meet a panel of judges in for the last round of judging and will then join finalists from across the UK in Birmingham for a special event to celebrate their achievements and discover if they have won a national award.
Jo Vasey, Managing Director for Four Seasons Health Care in South East England, said: “The determination Martin has not only for himself but for his care teams to be the best has had a positive impact on the quality of care we provide in our region. The praise and commendations he’s had from various teams are something he should be proud of. Well done Martin. This award is well deserved.”
The Care Awards were open to employees from all Four Seasons homes across the UK and central team members to celebrate their commitment in the delivery of high-quality services to 14,000 residents cared for in more than 300 locations.
The 14 categories have been created to recognise excellence in a variety of roles across the organisation ranging from ‘Registered Nurse of the Year’ to ‘Care Home Manager of the Year’. We also wanted to recognise the hard the dedication and commitment from our residents, their relatives and volunteers.
Tim Hammond, CEO of Four Seasons Health Care said: “The award categories are all really important as we want to highlight the fantastic people we have working here in our organization. However, I believe it is important to acknowledge the special people who go above and beyond to help others in the community, and this is why our ‘Resident or Relative Contribution’ and ‘Volunteer of the Year’ awards are so important to us.
“I look forward to seeing all of our Regional winners at the National Finals in December.”
