Laurel Lodge is a beautiful Victorian House converted into a residential home with facilities to care for up to 32 residents.

Its location in the leafy residential area of Ipswich Road gives our residents freedom to explore the nearby Norwich city centre, as well as independent cafes and shops in Lakenham just a short distance away. Our staff are always on hand to assist our residents if they would like to go out but require a little extra support.

The home benefits from a beautiful accessible garden complete with paved walkways; a patio area with seating, raised flowerbeds, and a stunning collection of roses giving it the atmosphere of a traditional manor garden.

Every bedroom in Laurel Lodge benefits from an en-suite toilet with washbasin. The garden facing bedrooms which have recently been renovated, also have a shower. The home has a number of communal areas including the aforementioned garden; a dining room, a salon, and a lounge.  Residents have the option to eat in the dining room or in the comfort of their own rooms if they choose.

Laurel Lodge has a fun-filled activities schedule with all of our entertainment being tailored to our residents likes and interests. Person-centred care is at the heart of everything we do, and we believe it is important to know our residents and what matters to them, to provide the true atmosphere of home whilst they are in our care.


This bedroom is situated within Southwell Court in Cambridgeshire, and aims to show the high quality accommodation we offer across the group. Size of room may vary across different homes, but all of our rooms include all the attributes mentioned within the virtual tour. Outside and communal galleries feature our residential facilities throughout East Anglia. This is an example of a standard bedroom within the Black Swan Care Group.

Dining is a hugely important factor in many lives, it is more than simply sustenance. Culturally, both food and dining are at the core of our most joyous experiences in life; weddings, festivals, birthdays and holidays to name just a few.

We encourage our residents to invite their loved ones into the home for lunch, dinner and even breakfast so that meal times offer the same opportunities for socialising as they would’ve done throughout each individual’s life.

What is unique about the dining experience we offer here is ‘choice’, which extends beyond simply WHAT you wish to eat, it includes WHERE, WHEN and WHO WITH. Not only do our residents have a superb choice of meals each day but they have the freedom to eat them wherever they like, whenever they like, and with whomever they choose.

We often incorporate food into our activities, providing buffets at parties and BBQs during summer garden parties. We have even hosted ‘Come dine with me’ style evenings in which favourite meals are pitted against one another, diners then voting for their favourite.

Our catering staff are highly skilled and in addition to their knowledge within hospitality they are subject to our programme of care related training, this gives them a broad understanding of the often complex needs of our residents. Our dining team cater for a diverse range of dietary requirements and have experience in tailoring menus to suit every individual’s specific needs.



Regular activities include flower arranging, art and craft sessions, quiz nights and tea parties. As well as fun events in the home, entertainers often come and visit us too. We have recently been visited by the Salvation Army, musicians and local drama students.

As you would expect, special holidays are incorporated into our activity calendar and birthdays are always celebrated with a party and a big slice of cake!

We invite our residents to join in with choosing and planning activities and encourage those moving in with us to continue with their current hobbies and interests.
