Review of Grangewood

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.

Review of Grangewood

Was worried about my mother going into a home but her dementia meant she needed the 24 hour care and Grangewood provides this excellently for her. She has her own lovely room and communal areas are excellent. My mam is always full of praise for staff and I have no cause for concern as they are always very welcoming.

Review of Grangewood

Always a warm and friendly welcome. Staff are very approachable and residents and visitors are both catered for. Grandma always looks happy, clean and well on each visit and her needs are catered for which is the most important thing. The care home manager is very friendly and puts the needs of the residents first.

Review of Grangewood

I visited many other homes in the Sunderland area, this home is lively, residents are happy, staff were excellent and the home manager (Sam) was extremely helpful and supportive. I would encourage anyone to visit Grangewood, you get a real home feel when you walk in the door. I have peace of mind now with my mum and she also has it!.

Review of Grangewood

First time I have visited my friend since she was moved into the care home. I believe her family and her made an excellent choice after visiting many other homes in the area. The atmosphere when you walk in the home is very warm and welcoming. The staff are very knowledgeable and friendly. My friend appears very well and has a more active lifestyle than I do, which is great to see.

Since I came here to live I have met lots of lovely people and have been to some lovely places on bus trips. We are looking at different wall paper at present and the choice is ours for our lounge. We are voting on the best but we all like the same, can't wait to have it done. As long as I don't have to do the wall papering myself.
