We care, the way you care.
Blenham House has 60 beautiful single bedrooms with spacious ensuite shower facilities, arranged over three floors. There are two lifts which access each of the three floors. The freshly decorated bedrooms have telephone and Internet access, a wall mounted TV and a nurse call system, for prompt assistance. Each floor has its own comfortable open plan lounge with wide screen TV, and dining area with a fully-fitted pantry and also an extra-quiet lounge. The conservatory on the ground floor has a door out into the garden – always a popular place to sit with a cup of tea, or for gardening activities when weather permits.

Events and activities are hugely enjoyed at Blenham House and the dedicated team, full calendar and the availability of their own minibus ensures that the level of participation is high.

An excellent Chef and kitchen team offer nutritionally-balanced, freshly prepared meals. The menu changes on a four-weekly cycle and they try to accommodate different tastes and diets as far as possible. Residents choose where to eat. Some people like the privacy of their own room, whilst others enjoy eating together in the dining room.

From the manager

“"I have been managing the nursing home since 2007 and run Blenham House with professionalism, compassion and most importantly a sense of humour. I have a superb team of qualified nurses, trained carers and ancillary staff alongside me. Our aim is to enable our 60 residents to enjoy the later stage of their lives to the full. Blenham House was purpose built ensuring a focus on quality of care from the start. Our facilities and accommodation are excellent, making Blenham House a very comfortable place to be – ‘like being in a nice hotel’ according to one resident. There is professional nursing care 24 hours a day and an events programme with plenty of variety to keep mind and body active. Our residents can enjoy being ‘home from home’ but with companionship and support whenever they need it." ”
