Local care home renamed by residents and team members

Home news

A care home in Hale Barns has been renamed by residents and team members following completion of its new management earlier this year. 

Halecroft Grange, on Hale Road, formerly known as Sunrise of Hale Barns, is now managed by Care UK, after the provider announced they will be taking over the leadership and management of seven Sunrise Senior Living UK and 19 Gracewell Healthcare’s homes in the UK. 

To help inspire the new name, team members, who will remain in place under the new management, and residents at the home were invited to submit their suggestions based on Hale Barns’ history, places and famous locals. 

Residents were encouraged to reminisce about their favourite memories spent in and around Hale Barns, with team members also sharing their own experiences of the area to help decide on a name.

Suzi Sumegi, General Manager at Halecroft Grange, said: “We’re thrilled to now be part of the Care UK family! All of our homes are named after things, people and places that are part of local history to reflect our desire to anchor ourselves in the local community, while giving future residents an opportunity to reminisce about the area. 

“Hale Barns is rich in history and it’s been fantastic to hear the countless stories residents have from their time spent here. Both residents and team members are delighted with our new name, Halecroft Grange, and look forward to celebrating over the festive period.” 

Care UK is a rapidly expanding provider offering high quality care for both funded and private residents, with more ‘outstanding’ rated homes than any other provider. As well as having a strong reputation for sector leading quality care, Care UK has invested heavily in developing a market-leading hospitality and lifestyle product reflecting similar focus areas to the Sunrise and Gracewell approach.

Designed to enable residents to live active and fulfilled lives, while also promoting independence, Halecroft Grange, which remains open to potential residents, incorporates space for hobby and leisure activities. The layout of the building has been configured into a series of individual suites, each having a dedicated lounge/dining room to help facilitate the creation of close-knit communities and encourage social interaction among the residents. 

Formerly known as Sunrise of Hale Barns, Halecroft Grange provides luxury, life-enabling care for older people. The highly trained, professional team delivers permanent and short-term residential, dementia and respite care.
