Social Care Awards 2017

ghp Social Care Awards 2017 | 13 Best Residential Care Home - Northamptonshire Grangefield can house up to 20 residents, and boasts a reputation across Northamptonshire for being a remarkable care provider. The home has resisted the urge to provide dementia care, focusing instead on offering stimulating care to elderly people who require help due to their physical frailty. Residents at the home are treated to complimentary hairdressing, chiropody and massage therapy, as well as themed events such as fancy dress, music, dance and sumptuous tea parties. The home organises regular outings to places like stately homes and theatres. Weekly activities include fitness, arts and crafts and games. The home even has its very own pub, which like everything else, is free of charge. The home’s efforts have been deservedly recognised. In January 2017, Grangefield won the prestigious Global Health & Pharma Magazine’s 2017 Social Care Award for Best Residential Care Home in Northamptonshire. The home believes this is independent vindication of their approach to care. In 2012, Grangefield won an award for Best Customer Service as part of the Northamptonshire Business Excellence Awards. This award was open to organisations from different sectors, and by beating so many different companies to secure the accolade, Grangefield proved that kind, wonderful, care homes do exist. A number of factors contribute to making Grangefield different. First and foremost, its staff – a loyal and long serving team of people to whom residents ‘are like family’. The owner, manager, senior staff team, alongside the domestic and catering teams all play a pivotal role in maintaining the high standards across the home. “We also host regular one-on-one resident meetings, group meetings and relative forums. This allows us to remain in continual touch with what our clients want,” explained owner Nikul Odedra. “This, coupled with our beautiful premises, delicious cuisine and a ‘yes we can’ attitude, allows us to stay on top of our game.” In 2008, Grangefield Care Home started to offer care at home to elderly people living in their own homes. This new service, named Grangefield Homecare, wanted to be different from other larger agencies. Since establishment, it has remained small and local – an approach which has allowed clients to receive timely care from the same group of carers, something which bigger agencies struggle to provide. A recent restructuring and operational overhaul is enabling a more focused service to be provided, allowing Grangefield Homecare to take Grangefield Care Home’s good reputation to a new, wider audience. Grangefield Care Home is a beautiful Edwardian home that sits proudly opposite open rolling countryside in the historic village of Earls Barton. It was converted into a care home for the elderly in 1989 and purchased by the current owner, Mr Nikul Odedra, in 2005. SO170021 Company: Grangefield Care Home Web Address:
