Grangewood is a bright and welcoming care home offering gold standard care and a strong community atmosphere.
We are here to support you and your loved one through your journey into care and can offer virtual show-rounds with a dedicated member of the team. In some instances we may be able to offer visits via our garden. If you’re considering care for yourself or a loved one, call us to find out why we’re trusted to 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 quality residential care for older people, including those living with dementia.
The gold standard in care
We are proud to have been awarded Sunderland City Council’s gold standard for quality care. This demonstrates our overall commitment to quality care, including a focus on healthy eating, health and safety and stimulating activities.
Each member of the Grangewood team is passionate about delivering expert care that’s tailored to your loved one’s unique needs. That passion and dedication is epitomised by Senior Carer, Caryn Walmsley, who won the Northern Echo Dementia Carer of the Year award 2021.
Caryn adapts her approach to each resident and always goes the extra mile too. Whatever a resident would like to do to enhance their day – reading, singing, doing puzzles or reminiscence – Caryn will support them to do it so they have a meaningful experience.
At the heart of the community
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.
Grangewood is close to the village library, medical centre and various churches. There's also a post office and a pub on our doorstep, and good transport links to Sunderland, Newcastle, Chester-le-Street and Durham. It all adds to the sense of being at the heart of things.
Your own space
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.
