Don't know what type of care you need? Let us help.

Below are some descriptions of care terms you may have heard. Please have a read, then feel free to contact the care home manager Jonathan Cole here at Melton House Care Home in Wymondham, to chat through the specific options we have available.

Residential care

This is for those who may need some help with daily activities such as eating, washing, dressing and getting around, or for those who need a more supportive environment if they're more frail.

Respite care

Respite care, or short-stay care, means someone can stay at Melton House Care Home whether they need residential, nursing or dementia care - for shorter periods of time: days or weeks rather than months. Respite care is also suitable for those recovering from illness or a hospital stay.

"I feel happy to call Melton House my home and enjoy the friendly, relaxed atmosphere. I am enjoying my time here and I would recommend to a friend."

Anne Sugar, Resident / Service User at Melton House Care Home
