Epworth Grange is a home in every sense for people with residential and dementia care needs. It had an extensive, GBP 470,000 refurbishment in December 2017.
It is just a short distance from the town centre of Bury, with its multiple In Bloom awards, art and regimental museums, heritage railway and famous open air market (which is only one of its shopping opportunities). But even within itself alone, Epworth Grange has plenty to offer.
All but one of the private single bedrooms have en suite facilities, while the lounge and activity room are attractive, pleasant places to socialise.
There are four dining rooms spread throughout the home for mealtimes; residents, of course, guide the rotating weekly menu to ensure that meals are nutritious, delicious and, crucially, what they enjoy. The Food Standards Agency has given the home five stars; residents rate the meals as "very good" and the care regulator has noted the "relaxed and unhurried" pace of mealtimes.
People can have an appointment with the visiting hairdresser in the hair salon, and enjoy the two connected gardens (both are safe for people with dementia) and conservatory.
Epworth Grange currently has a CQC of GOOD in all areas. We are one Carehome.co.uk Top Twenty most recommended homes in North West with a rating of 9.9.
Pension, 28 days holiday (inc. bank holidays), Life Assurance, Discount Scheme, free uniform and DBS provided.
