New Ivy Court care home opens in Norwich

Ex-Norwich City Football player Paul McVeigh officially opened Caring Homes’ newest care home this week (Monday 6 July). The local football hero was supported cutting the ribbon by founder of Caring Homes Group Helena Jeffery and Judith Rundle, the first resident to move in that same day.

Chairman of Bernard Matthews, David Joll, also presented a canvas photograph to Helena Jeffery for display in a dining room at the home – the room itself has been named in honour of Bernard Matthews, the well-known Norfolk turkey farmer.

The Norwich care home, Ivy Court, is a true celebration of the county in the East of England; with lounge and dining rooms named after many local Norfolk celebrities. A gift has also been received from local author, Hugh Sturzaker, who signed his book about James Paget for display in this lounge named after the man himself (a hospital in Gorleston is also named after this local medical historical figure). Other local celebrities that have rooms named after them include Admiral Lord Nelson, Jeremiah Colman (of Colman’s Mustard) and Delia Smith, TV chef, author and major shareholder at Norwich City Football Club.

Ivy Court is a stunning modern new care home. It offers residential, dementia and nursing care for 71 older people. Find more information about Ivy Court here, or call free on 0808 202 0478 for your personal tour today.
