As Barchester’s premier purpose built accommodation in East Anglia, Woodside offers care to frail elderly persons and those with dementia. Barchester’s second purpose-built home in Norwich is the Cherry Trees care home which will have state-of-the-art facilities and is due to open in September. Barchester Healthcare now owns 38 care homes throughout the UK with provision for 2,407 beds.
