Welcome to Melton House Care Home
You'll find Melton House in the market town of Wymondham, Norfolk. Here our team of district nurses, supported by GPs, provides person-centred residential care to elderly people, around the clock.
We recognise that each person living here is an individual, and work to help them live as independent a lifestyle as possible.
Our purpose-built property is half a mile from the town centre, and in easy reach of shops, public transport and other amenities. Inside, it's brightly decorated to help create a warm, welcoming atmosphere.
We have a combination of single bedrooms and bedrooms big enough for sharing. All have great safety features and TV points; many have en-suites.
We love residents to choose their own colour schemes for these spaces, and to otherwise personalise them to make them more familiar and homely.
Life at Melton House Care Home
Melton House's activities coordinator works with each person living here to organise weekly pursuits and pastimes of their choice. These can include bingo, gardening club and puzzle afternoons.
Our local vicar pays regular visits, and we look to help meet all other faith requirements.

As delayed transfers of care remain at record highs, how can we reduce unnecessary hospital stays for older people? That was the key question at an HSJ event held in association with Four Seasons Health Care.
The roundtable heard that the healthcare system often finds reasons not to deal with care home residents and looked at the success of an innovative collaboration between the NHS and care homes in Belfast.
With a collaborative approach between care homes and the NHS, older people are able to leave hospital and receive expert care, whilst assessing whether their long term future would be in their current home or a local care home. “The idea is that it would provide short term rehabilitation in conjunction with the two trusts in that area. The joint partnerships with the trusts I’ve worked with have just been amazing, and that’s what makes it work”, explained Janice Brown, Four Seasons’ regional manager for the Belfast and Newtownabbey area.
In addition to the improvements from a collaborative solution, South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust reported that the joint partnership approach of providing a bed in a care home reduced their yearly cost by more than half.

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.”
