All The Comforts Of Home
We strive to make Grace House a home from home, a happy place to live, with a fantastic team of fully trained staff.
Our objective is to ensure that our residents have their choices, independence, dignity and security maintained at all times.
We have 21 rooms, all fully equipped to ensure comfort for the residents. 13 of the rooms have ensuite facilities for convenience and privacy.
A nurse call system, fire safety system and stair lifts are in place to maintain the safety or our residents. Each of the bedrooms have digital/freeview television and telephone points are also available.
Dining Room We encourage as many of our residents as are able to join mealtimes in the dining room. Residents wishing to enjoy their meals in their own rooms are also accommodated.
Living Room We have a spacious living room, fully equipped with televisions for the residents’ enjoyment. It includes comfortable chairs arranged in groups to encourage companionship and conversation.
Grace House employs two full trained chefs who work to ensure that all our residents dietary requirements are met. We offer breakfast, lunch and supper menus and each day residents are offered morning coffee and tea with biscuits and afternoon tea with cake.
We create meal menus which use fresh seasonal dishes, incorporating residents likes and dislikes, and ensure that there is a choice of dishes at each meal time. Menus are reviewed taking into consideration residents’ monthly care plan reviews, regular resident and relative meetings and during the annual quality assurance process.
We cater for specialist diets including diabetic diets and those needing to gain or lose weight. We also take into consideration cultural dietary needs.
We use the BAPEN tool, a National Nutritional screening tool and ensure that we can closely monitor residents weight, and where necessary we use the prescription food chart to enhance diets with extra calories.
A local hairdresser visits Grace Home on a weekly basis, as well as a chiropodist and optician. These services ensure stress-free wellbeing in the comfort and privacy of their own rooms. Each resident also has the option of a daily newspaper delivered by the local newsagent. Laundry facilities are also provided on-site and included in the cost of the residents stay.
