My mother spent the last three weeks of her life at Olive House. During that time she received excellent care and died peacefully with dignity. Staff were caring, compassionate and I could not fault any aspect of her care. When it was clear that her needs had increased staff acted to address the situation immediately. As a family we were able to visit Mum freely and spend as much time with her as we wanted. I have no hesitation in recommending Olive House.

My wife and I are currently in Olive House, Newton Flotham, Norwich. It is an excellent home with equally excellent caring staff. The food and rooms are equally very good.
