Bilney Hall, Dereham, Norfolk

Bilney Hall offers a splendid environment for gracious living. The Hall dates back to the 19th century yet its luxurious facilities are very much 21st century. Generous single rooms, all with en-suite facilities, are tastefully decorated and provide residents with the necessary facilities for a quality life in later years. The Home provides residential care for frail elderly residents and has separate wings for those with dementia. Although all rooms are fully furnished, staff encourage residents to bring with them items of furniture and personal possessions so that their room can be a true home from home.

Bilney Hall is situated in the picturesque village of East Bilney, just a few miles from the market towns of Dereham and Fakenham. Set in six acres of extensive grounds, residents can relax in the stunning walled garden and wooded parkland which surround the home allowing them to really enjoy this haven within the beautiful Norfolk countryside.

Care staff are trained to the highest standards, using an internal training programme, and chosen not only for their skills but also for their warmth, friendliness and caring attitude. They are on hand around the clock to provide professional care that respects the rights and dignity of the individual. The emphasis placed on high quality staff was recently rewarded when the company received ‘Investor in People’ accreditation.

They regularly assess each resident so that they can be sure their needs are met and supply specialised equipment if required. An optician, dentist, and chiropodist visit by appointment, and the in-house hairdressing salon provides all the usual services plus manicures and hand massages. The catering staff provides delicious meals and snacks throughout the day, as well as special dishes for those with particular dietary requirements.

Outstanding anf friendly care
In this home the care is not only outstanding but the staff do everything to make this a home for the residents. They are very good with difficult behaviour. This is my mothers second home and I can't praise them enough.

What more can I say! Bilney Hall is like living in a stately home. Mum and dad are very happy. The staff are magnificent. The activities team, just organised a party for mum's 90th. Everyone without exception is kind and patient. They all deserve a pay rise! Dad missed it because he fell over and broke his pelvis (he has a talent for it) but everyone rallies round (and Queen Elizabeth Hospital are great too!) We count ourselves very fortunate that we found this lovely place for mum and dad's final years (they're 90 and 91)

My wife gradually developed dementia, she is now in her seventh year at Bilney. She can do nothing for herself. Her care at Bilney is very good, all the staff are well trained and very kind to all residents. The management are good and considerate. I would recommend this care home.

This home gave the most wonderful care to my mother during her time there. From the moment my mother walked in to the day she died the care was superb. My mother could not have had a better end of life experience. The family were also treated with compassion and care. Every member of staff oozed empathy and love for the people in their care and treated them with respect. The staff are led in this wonderful manner by the Manager - Alison Charlesworth. If I am to end up in a home, this would be my choice. The BBC should film here to show just how a home for patients with dementia and other illnesses can be cared for. Thank you.

I have known of Bilney Hall for many years and was in no doubt when I had to place my dear friend in care. I knew that he would be well looked after here and I am not disappointed. I have recommended several people to this care home and all to my knowledge are very satisfied with their care. It is a well run establishment with Alison and her staff and the cleanliness is impeccable.

My father was a resident at Bilney for 18 months until he unfortunately died in April this year. He had vascular dementia and I had moved him from his much loved home in Stoke to be near to me. When I could no longer care for him Alison and the wonderful staff literally saved my life by giving my dad somewhere he could live out his life with dignity and respect. He loved it and although I was fortunate enough to be able to visit him daily, he was never short of company or entertainment - if he wished it. I am unable to thank everyone there enough. The staff there are angels and I have not a bad word to say about anyone.
