The Paddocks is located in the centre of Swaffham, a beautiful and tranquil Norfolk town with plenty of shops and cafes as well as a weekly market.

The Paddocks offers the flexibility of day care, respite care for short breaks and permanent care for those who can no longer live at home. We have a separate purpose built unit specialising in the care of residents who have dementia type illnesses in addition to support those residents with nursing or residential needs.

All bedrooms are fully en suite, some with patio doors leading onto the beautifully landscaped garden areas. There is also every opportunity to personalise bedrooms with your own treasured possessions.


There is a varied and exciting social calendar of events and activities throughout the home to stimulate and create a sense of wellbeing and independence.

You are always welcome to come and visit the home yourself and meet our dedicated team who strive to make a difference in providing first class quality care.

We are very proud of our garden, which boasts a large fountain and a small woodland area, with ample seating to sit and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. Residents with dementia can freely enjoy our secure seaside themed garden.
