About East Anglia Care Homes
East Anglia Care Homes is a family owned care home business in Norfolk. It provides both residential and nursing care including NHS Continuing Care, Dementia Care and End of Life care.
Its first care home, Halvergate House in North Walsham, opened its doors in 1989. This was a Georgian house which the company converted and extended to provide well appointed facilities for 35 residents in a beautiful setting. All bedrooms had en-suite facilities, TV and telephone as standard, something very unusual at the time. In 2005 the home was extended to add further 15 large bedrooms, all en-suite with showers.
The second care home, Sutherlands in Wymondham opened in 1996. It was designed and built by East Anglia Care Homes and provides facilities for 49 residents. The design profited from the knowledge gained from Halvergate House and also from research into design features that will better meet the needs of residents in the future. The design was ahead of its time then and it is pleasing to note that it still sets the standard for new built facilities.
Having spent over thirty years providing care, East Anglia Care Homes understands what care is about, the needs and anxieties of people who come into care and those closest to them. We work hard to make sure that our residents and their families are satisfied when when our care homes become their choice.
Our homes have been designed to take away that large institutional feel, having instead a warm, homely atmosphere, which we are pleased is very much remarked on by residents, their families and other visitors .
Mr Bharat Raghu
Mr Raghu, the founder of East Anglia Care Homes, continues to be fully involved daily in every aspect of the work of the two care homes. He is always to hand to speak with residents, their families and indeed prospective residents.
Sutherlands is named after one of Mr Raghu’s favourite sopranos, Dame Joan Sutherland, and the operatic theme continues through the home, each suite named after a female opera singer.
Mr Raghu continues to lead East Anglia Care Homes and is currently planning the organization’s next step to develop an Extra Care Housing scheme in Diss, Norfolk.
