Grangewood

The home is modern, well equipped and clean. Staff are friendly and helpful. Residents appear to be comfortable in their surroundings and rooms are bright and cared for. There is room for home comforts to be fitted in the rooms which I believe helps residents settle in more easily.

My father's health deteriorated very rapidly and unexpectedly, I had to look for a suitable care home that would be able to look after him. My dad is still quite young and this was a very difficult decision to make, however, the manager and the staff made this decision very easy from the outset. The staff are so friendly and welcoming and genuinely care about the residents and are always close at hand should you need advice or help. I can honestly say I would recommend Grangewood care home to anyone thinking about or needing to put a family member into care. My dad is so happy at Grangewood, the staff do a great job of looking after him the rooms are immaculate and the food always looks amazing. The care my dad receives is of the highest standard and staff go above and beyond to help. Well done to you all and a huge thank you.

I did not want my dad to go into a care home and had heard many nightmare stories, but when he was discharged from hospital we needed to find somewhere for respite care. I visited many homes and was particularly impressed by Grangewood where I was welcomed by staff who appeared happy in their work. My dad was not easy to deal with when he first arrived, but staff were very patient and really tried hard to understand his needs and then meet them. The manager is excellent, obviously experienced and very knowledgeable. I actually feel that he is better off in Grangewood than he would be at home. I never thought I'd say that.
