Providing retirement care with a Christian ethos 

Care and retirement homes in Norfolk, including Eckling Grange, Corton House and Quebec Hall, are providing loving care with a Christian ethos.

Christian retirement home Quebec Hall at Dereham, in Mid Norfolk, is to hold an Open Day and Service of Thanksgiving on September 18.

Providing a home for retired Christians for around 60 years, the management and staff aim to provide a secure, home-from-home atmosphere coupled with personal care and attention. Above all, they wish the home to be one in which the love of God is readily apparent from the care shown.

The Open Day, to which everyone is welcome, will take place on Saturday September 18 with the Service of Thanksgiving at 3pm. Tea can be taken in the picturesque gardens or in the marquee and you will be able to tour the Hall and visit the Bungalows.

The Hall has 19 rooms and all are bright, airy and en-suite. The Hall has two large lounges, one of which features a balcony that affords good views of the gardens and beyond. The lounge on the ground floor is used extensively for the majority of the Hall's activities including the weekly services.

There are also 43 sheltered bungalows situated in the grounds of Quebec Hall. The self-contained bungalows are well suited to those who are seeking peace in their later years and who wish to maintain their independence.

For more information visit www.quebechall.co.uk or contact manager Mark Woodgett on 01362 692504 or via email at: info@quebechall.co.uk 

Quebec Hall is to be found at Quebec Road, Dereham, Norfolk NR19 2QY.

Excellent loving care and support is provided at Corton House, a care home with a Christian ethos located in the heart of Norwich.

Situated close to Norwich city centre, Corton House is easily accessible for the city and travel links. Residents enjoy peaceful surrounding and large secure gardens. Accommodation includes good-sized living space and en-suite facilities, wheelchair access and newly-refurbished communal spaces. 

Current residents describe Corton House as ‘a very happy place’ and say that ‘food and care are second to none’. Residents appreciate the professionalism and genuine loving care provided by the staff team, who help them to be as independent as they choose to be and receive the support they need when they need it. The home was awarded ‘Good’ across all areas by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) in May 2021.

Corton House has fostered links with local churches over many years. There are regular services for those that want to participate, the opportunity to receive communion and pray with the resident chaplain.

Eckling Grange, near Dereham, has been providing Christian Care since 1963 and its Christian values remain at the forefront of everything it does, according to General Manager Stewart Barber.

“Despite everything that has been thrown at the care industry during the pandemic, we continue to provide Residential and Dementia Care, Sheltered Accommodation and Domiciliary Care, all within the six acres of beautiful gardens,” said Stewart. The Care and Management Team is headed up by committed Christians, and the Pastor.

But what does Christian Care mean – what makes it  different? “In the case of Eckling Grange there is a strong focus on spiritual care, as well as the physical, holistic care in the complete sense,” said Stewart. “Our Pastor, Ian Masson, heads up a team of resident volunteers, all living on-site, whose prime focus is Spiritual Ministry and support for our residents and staff. This includes regular worship services, Bible studies, prayer groups, fellowship times, one-to-one support, staff training and even a YouTube channel so recorded worship/events can be viewed at any time. 135 Christians living together, covering many different denominations gives a rare sense of true Christian unity.”
