Sanford House Nursing Home

Sanford House is a purpose-built care home in Dereham, providing nursing care and specialist dementia care for up to 40 elderly people. 

Sanford House is one of our nursing homes in Norfolk and has been specifically designed to create an accessible and safe environment for elderly residents who may have mobility problems. All rooms and services are laid out over the ground floor and the home is arranged in a quadrangle around an attractive courtyard garden. Many rooms feature patio doors accessing into the courtyard area.

 Sanford House, care home in Dereham, has an enviable reputation for delivering excellent care. Our home’s dementia care provision has been designed to meet the University of Stirling’s standards, which are widely acknowledged as providing the best living environment for people living with dementia. Stirling’s Dementia Services Development Centre is renowned as the world leader in this field. The Stirling approach ensures that residents are able to move freely around the home, with bedrooms and communal areas appropriately laid out and clearly signposted to minimise confusion or disorientation.

 Our nursing home is ideally equipped to provide residential support for elderly people living with different types of dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia and Korsacoff’s syndrome. However, staff never lose sight of the fact that, first and foremost, Sanford House is home to our residents.
