Grangewood is a light and airy care home where you’ll discover a strong community atmosphere and gold standard care.
Grangewood is a purpose-built care home in the village of Shiney Row, close to Houghton-le-Spring in Tyne and Wear. We provide high quality residential care for older people, including people living with Alzheimer's and other types of dementia.
The best of care
We’re very proud of having been awarded Sunderland City Council’s gold standard for quality care. The awards cover a range of criteria, including offering residents a healthy, nutritious diet, delivering high standards of hygiene and health and safety, and providing a range of activities to promote residents’ all-round health and wellbeing.
Locals caring for locals
When you first visit Grangewood you’ll notice the strong feeling of community presence. The majority of our residents were born in the local area and have lived here all their lives. Most of our team members, some of whom have been here since we opened in 2005, are also local. So often a new resident will move in and immediately be among old friends and familiar faces.
At the heart of things
Grangewood care centre is located in the heart of the village community, close to amenities such as a library, a medical centre and various churches. There is also a post office and a pub on our doorstep, and we’re close to great transport links to Sunderland, Newcastle, Chester-le-Street, Durham and the surrounding areas.
