When you move house it takes a little while to get used to your new home and surroundings. You will be given a warm welcome when you arrive at Caldey Grange Care Home. We will introduce you to all the other residents, giving you every assistance in moving in and help you to settle down among new friends.
You will find the staff and residents friendly and helpful and will enjoy the family atmosphere of Caldey Grange, a Home for living in, not just staying in.
Why we are here
We all grow older, and it can become more and more difficult to deal with all the problems of living at home, even with home help. Caldey Grange is the answer. We will care for you just as a caring relative would, and we are here 24 hours a day.
Some people need assistance with washing, bathing, dressing, visiting the toilet or taking medicines. Whatever your needs, we are here to lend a hand when you need us to.
Above all, Caldey Grange is a home. A home where your dignity, independence and individuality can flourish in a caring, helpful environment.
