Discover Grange Court
Take a look around Grange Court and meet some of our residents. Grange Court offers 24 hour residential care for ladies and gentlemen.
Inside, you'll see we have a number of communal rooms, including 3 lounges and 2 dining rooms. One of our communal lounges even has a bar with a selection of fine wines and beer available. These rooms are for relaxing and for social activities.
Prior to admission, everyone is assessed by the Staff Manager or their nominated deputy, to ensure we can meet personal and social care needs. Nurses will holistically assess all clients on admission and an individual care plan will be formulated with the client and/or their family. This care plan will be based on historical, current and future needs and expectations, and will follow a process of continual review and evaluation.
An annual review in the form of a written report collated from the home's records, staff information, outside agencies e.g. GP, specialist nurses and input from the client, their family and/or friends will be arranged and undertaken.
Inside the home, we have a number of communal rooms; we have 3 lounges (one complete with bar with a selection of fine wines and beers available) and 2 beautifully decorated dining rooms. These rooms are for relaxing, and for social activities.
All of our rooms are single and most are with en-suite. We also have several luxury suites available at Grange Court, which are complete with dressing areas, sitting areas, designer wallpaper and all individually designed. All rooms are the personal and private accommodation of the person living in that room.
Residents are encouraged to bring their own personal belongings and furnishings to personalise their room. Every room has a nurse call system. Private phone lines are available by arrangement. Outside, we have parking and a garden with seating to the side of the home and a secure open-air courtyard to the rear of the main building.
Residents are offered a menu with a choice of home cooked meals using seasonal fresh produce. We are able to cater for residents with special dietary needs. Drinks and home baked cakes and biscuits are always available. We welcome any suggestions people may have for the menu.
