Daily Life at Thorpe House

Experience the beauty of our carefully crafted furniture settings at our care home in Griston, Thetford.

Some days call for nothing more than some downtime in the conservatory with a cup of tea and a good book, but when a little extra fun is craved, our wide range of events and activities are sure to delight. From chatty coffee mornings fuelled by caffeine and cake to garden parties and exercise classes and more, we’re always arranging fresh, fun things to do.

We also offer a wide range of activities. In 2022 we built a poppy decorated display of remembrance, put together by residents and staff. For ‘Wear it Pink Day,’ in aid of breast cancer awareness, both staff and residents looked very glamorous with their pink costumes. There’s a lot of laughter at Thorp House.

We also host regular live music productions with visiting musicians that go down very well with our residents. And our Macmillan Day Coffee morning was well supported by the local community. With our activities no one ever complains of boredom here.


Mealtimes at Thorpe House

Thorp House Meal

Whatever their circumstances may be, at Thorp House, we firmly believe in the importance of mealtimes, which is why we offer a first-class dining experience to all of our residents. Mealtimes here are fun, social and of course, extremely delicious - and thanks to our chef, residents can look forward to savouring restaurant-quality dishes that are both tasty and nutritious. 

From Diwali celebrations with stunning Indian food, to entertaining family and friends, mealtimes are a treat. Our head chef has designed a restaurant standard menu for the residents but if someone has a yearning for something specific for their meal, our kitchen will create this. We are passionate about satisfying the tastes of all of our residents and our plates of food can always tempt those with the smallest of appetites to enjoy their meal.
