Welcome to Grangewood

Grangewood is a purpose-built care home in the village of Shiney Row in Houghton-le-Spring, Tyne & Wear. Our bright and welcoming care home provides quality residential care for older people, including those living with dementia.

All of the bedrooms at Grangewood have en-suite facilities and are stylishly furnished. Each has a 24-hour nurse call system and telephone, internet and television connections. Your loved one is welcome to bring their own treasured possessions and items of furniture to help them to feel more at home. 

Our home has a strong community atmosphere. Most residents have lived locally all their lives - as have many of our colleagues. Often, when a new resident moves in, they're instantly among old friends and familiar faces.

We pride ourselves on the transparency of our care quality and fee information - ensuring you can trust us to care from that very first step.

Relative of a resident, April 2023

There's a real family atmosphere. There are different activities every week, it's like one big family! 

Relative of a resident, April 2023

As well as looking after my wife they look after me as well. When I can't get to the home, they inform me about her day; they take time out to phone me to let me know that she is alright.

Mr R R, Relative of resident, November 2019

They know what he wants and they call him by his first name, they made the transition from hospital to the home as good as it could be.
