At Runwood Homes, we specialise in high quality care for older people including those living with dementia and who require general nursing. We have 62 residential care homes across England and a number of Day Centres including services in Wymondham, Aylsham, Horstead (Norwich) and Hadleigh.
We care for over 4000 residents in the Runwood Homes group, and our employee team is an even larger number. The size of our team is an indication of the extent and quality of care that we are committed to and reflects our philosophy of treating all our residents with dignity and individuality.
With 75%-80% of our residents living with a level of dementia, Runwood has a special Dementia Care Services Team, made up of experienced experts in dementia care, who continually monitor our homes to ensure the highest standards are maintained.
Dignity for Everyone, Everyday
Our innovative Dignity Campaign is Runwood’s way of making ‘person centred’ care our own. We strive to provide care which supports, promotes and does not undermine the resident’s self-respect. We believe that dignified care promotes the residents well-being, and creates an inclusive, friendly environment in all our homes.
At Runwood Homes, we are always looking for people to join our high quality teams. We care about our staff, and invest in providing opportunities for advancement, as well as a friendly, rewarding, working environment.

Training and Development
Training and continual development is the foundation of employment with Runwood Homes. We want our residents to receive the best possible care, so need a well skilled, knowledgeable team to deliver this. Our aim is also to ensure our people have job satisfaction and the opportunity to develop skills that will enable career development.
We take a blended approach to our training delivery, offering e-learning, face to face training and coaching sessions. We understand that people learn in different ways and our skilled learning and development team are able to deliver this. Our development programme will enable you to move ‘up the ladder’ and progress your career with Runwood Homes. We offer QCF’s for all job roles from level 2 up to level 7 manager and the advanced e-learning and leadership courses will support your development and prepare you for the next steps. There is no limit to how high you can go, and currently, two members of the board of directors started their careers working as Care Assistants.
We implement regular supervision and appraisal, and continued support is in place for all employees, to ensure they feel supported and that good care practises are being delivered. Many of our residents are living with dementia and require close personal attention. We refer to this as ‘Person Centred Care’ and have a skilled and dedicated dementia services team who will support staff with dementia training, from introductory to advanced levels.
