Residential Care with Nursing
Residential care enables you to maintain an active and fulfilling lifestyle with the reassurance of knowing that you have a well-trained care team on hand 24/7, with care and support when needed. You will also have your own key worker, someone you can really get to know and trust, who in turn will understand your likes and dislikes.
Our skilled nurses are at the home 8.5 hours a day, every day of the week, but on call throughout all the other hours and never more than 30 minutes away. This means if your care needs should change in the future, we have the depth of skills to support you. Our nurse team pride themselves in delivering the highest standards of care, helping you to maintain good physical and mental health. We will make sure your care needs can be fully met by our team, by finding out about you before come to us.

It’s like having your own community nursing team in house, so you can call on their skills to keep you well and prevent any unnecessary visits to hospital.

Your cost of Care at Potters Grange
Because we are all unique, it’s important that we assess you before you come to live at Potters Grange, so we can be confident we can fully support your care needs and give you complete clarity of your fees.
The weekly figure is dependent on what room you chose and encompasses all your nursing and care needs plus anything that may be descried as ‘hotel costs’, such as all your meals, snacks and drinks, as well as your laundry (personal clothing and bed linen). After an assessment of your needs there may be an enhanced care supplement which you will be made aware of before agreeing to come and stay with us. This is only applied in exceptional circumstances.
“In fact the only things you will need to budget for are down to your personal choice, things like hairdressing or chiropody appointments or your own daily paper, or personal interest magazine”.
We are a long way removed from most people’s idea of what a care home is. What have you got to lose by staying for a short break, enjoying great food and good company in beautiful surroundings?
