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.

Four Seasons Health Care were finalists in nine categories at this year’s LaingBuisson Awards, and at the awards ceremony on Wednesday 15th November, the organisation was awarded with a well-deserved award.
The LaingBuisson Awards recognise and celebrate industry excellence and innovative services in the public, private and third sectors.
Four Seasons Health Care scooped the award in the ‘Nursing Practice’ category in recognition of the innovative approach to the advancement of nursing knowledge and nursing education within the care home sector.
Our Care Home Nursing Journal (CNJ) along with our individual Nursing Twitter channel (@FSHCNurses) won plaudits with the judges for being totally unique within the care sector.
Furthermore, there was a recognition of the achievements of the front-line nurses who have written articles, presented at conferences, won scholarships and been finalists at numerous nursing awards in the past 12 months. Again, these achievements are unique within the care sector.
Joanne Strain, Head of Nursing, said: “This is a terrific result for Four Seasons Health Care and real recognition of our growing influence amongst care home nurses in the UK. This is only the start of our journey and I want to dedicate this award to all our tremendous nurses across the FSHC family”.
Carol Cousins, Northern Ireland Managing Director, also commented on the award success. She said: “This award is recognition for inspirational nurse leaders in creating the first clinical nursing journal in the independent care home sector – well done to all involved”.
While CNJ editorial board member, and Clinical Lead Nurse of Cameron House Care Home in Bury, Craig Priestley stated: “I’m so proud we won – the CNJ is one of the best learning resources we have for Four Seasons Nurses. It has shaped and improved nursing practice and helped to improve quality of life – well done to all involved in its production!”
If you’d like to take a look at the award winning journal, it’s available on the Four Seasons website in the publications area.
