Out and about for Sanford

The residents at Sanford House in East Dereham have been out and about this month.

Firstly, it was off to the Queen’s house in Sandringham, the most famous stately home in Norfolk. Unfortunately she was out, so the residents and staff enjoyed learning about the history of the house from the knowledgeable guides who were in every room! Everyone really enjoyed looking at the antiques and furniture each room. The architecture was amazing, with lots of portraits hanging on the walls and arms of armour collections.

The sights of the gardens were beautiful and rolled on for miles, we took in lots of fresh air walking through them taking in the sites and wildlife.

A week later the residents were out again, this time to visit nearby Wroxham, where a fish and chip lunch was followed by a lovely relaxing boat cruise on the Norfolk Broads. This trip was part of our wish list, and granted two of our residents their wishes of a trip on the broads. We all enjoyed commentary from the skipper showing us points of interest on the route, and watched the birds and wildlife as we floated on by.

Sanford House provides specialist residential and dementia care in a purpose built environment for up to 40 elderly people.
