Welcome to Romford Grange Care Home
Here at Romford Grange we're proud of the homely and welcoming atmosphere in our purpose-built home.
We put the health and happiness of people living here at the heart of everything we do, and our dedicated team of nurses and carers actively encourage residents to take part in all decisions - contributing to everything from the way their rooms look to the therapies they receive.
Residents can enjoy their hobbies in our bright, communal lounges - where they can also watch television, listen to music or have some quiet reading time. Our landscaped gardens have patios, plenty of seating, raised flower beds and a vegetable patch for green-fingered residents to tend to.
Life at Romford Grange Care Home
Our activities coordinator meets with each resident to help plan their social calendar.
There's always something going on, from quizzes to hand massages and music therapy to flower arranging. We invite professional entertainers to visit regularly and we're also treated to performances by the local school children and the wider community.
We also put on themed meals, including food and wine from around the world, and enjoy catering for special celebrations such as birthdays and anniversaries.
I visited 26 homes in Havering and Redbridge to find the best fit for my Nan and Romford Grange was by far the best.
The building has a cosy homely feel unlike a lot that feel either hospital or even prison like.
The care staff actually care and majoritively exceptional, always going the extra mile.
The manager seems to me to have the respect of all the staff. The management and administration have always been friendly, effective, approachable and any issues that have arisen have been resolved as quickly as was possible.
Activities are frequent and varied.Food is excellent.
Circumstances in the past have meant that I spent many more hours in the home than an average relation/visitor and so I have seen precisely how all the staff work day to day.
Overall, I wouldn't want my Nan anywhere else.
After visiting a number of Homes, Romford Grange is most definitely top of the list. All the staff are friendly and yet professional. The care staff really do care and the majority go that extra mile for both residents and their relatives. They have activities that are both regular and varied, catering for all residents. They encourage relations/visitors to participate to help have those quality times together. As sadly I don't live locally I don't get to see Nan as often as I'd like. But when we do, we make sure we spend several hours and can see how hard all the staff work in ensuring that the residents are cared for in every aspect.
I would recommend to anyone else looking for a home for themselves or a relative. Found it through Google, nice to have shop nearby for little bits for relative. A nice feel about the Romford Grange, peaceful, always made welcome.
My daughter has settled very well into the Grange. You cannot fault her care, nurses and carers. The manager is very attentive and caring (which is the operative word). Very good food always. Personal care is excellent. Laundry service very good.
Romford Grange has a real homely feel about it. My mums needs are all catered for from food to medicine's and a variety of activities for her to join in. Staff are very caring and friendly, they treat her like one of their own family. Relatives are treated very well also, and made to feel very welcome. There is an open door policy for talking to staff and management. I am so pleased with Romford Grange. Christmas, Birthdays etc are lovely for residents. I have done voluntary work for a few years. The staff are very special caring people, I have complete peace of mind.

Four Seasons Health Care were well represented at the finals of the British Journal of Nursing Awards earlier this month with four colleagues flying the flag for the organisation.
Gary Cousins was a runner up in the Infection Control and Prevention Nurse category, Colin Sheeran was a runner up in the Mental Health Nurse of the Year category and Joanne Strain was a runner up in the British Nurse of the Year category.
However, further plaudits need to be given to Alana Irvine who was crowned the Nutritional Nurse of the Year, after being nominated by colleagues for her continued commitment to residents’ nutrition.
Alana has been part of the driving force behind Four Seasons nutrition innovations to meet the varying needs of the people in our care. We are able to monitor residents’ nutritional needs, with technology that flags up weight loss, whether a resident has difficulty swallowing or needs assistance when eating or drinking to the care team.
Nutrition is something we take very seriously here at Four Seasons and Alana’s win recognises all of the hard work done across the board in this area.

Martin Murphy, Regional Manager for Anglia has been crowned Regional Manager of the Year for the South East of England in the Four Seasons Health Care Awards 2016 and is through to the national finals.
These are the 1st Four Season’s Care Awards and this year over 700 people were nominated for awards by care home residents, colleagues and visitors. All entries have been of a very high standard making the judging process a difficult one. However, a winner had to be chosen and the nomination for Martin demonstrated how he continues to make a difference and provide special resident experiences on a daily basis.
During the judging process for the Regional Manager of the Year award, the panel was looking at a number of different factors including the individual demonstrating exceptional leadership skills and the ability to prioritise the day to day challenges of the role. This individual has supported their homes and helped them to achieve the company’s strategic priorities whilst managing external stakeholders and keeping special resident experiences at the centre of everything they do.
Victor was nominated by a colleague. His nomination read: “Martin has a huge wealth of knowledge and is very passionate about the work he does. He always explains clearly what he wants you to do, ensuring that you understand every aspect before leaving the room. I’ve seen firsthand how Martin interacts with the care teams, residents and families and it is truly a sight to behold. He’s always willing to share his knowledge and support anyone through their care journey. I want to personally thank Martin for all the support he’s given my during my time here.”
As the winner for South East England, Martin is automatically through to the national Four Season’s Care Awards finals. He will meet a panel of judges in for the last round of judging and will then join finalists from across the UK in Birmingham for a special event to celebrate their achievements and discover if they have won a national award.
Jo Vasey, Managing Director for Four Seasons Health Care in South East England, said: “The determination Martin has not only for himself but for his care teams to be the best has had a positive impact on the quality of care we provide in our region. The praise and commendations he’s had from various teams are something he should be proud of. Well done Martin. This award is well deserved.”
The Care Awards were open to employees from all Four Seasons homes across the UK and central team members to celebrate their commitment in the delivery of high-quality services to 14,000 residents cared for in more than 300 locations.
The 14 categories have been created to recognise excellence in a variety of roles across the organisation ranging from ‘Registered Nurse of the Year’ to ‘Care Home Manager of the Year’. We also wanted to recognise the hard the dedication and commitment from our residents, their relatives and volunteers.
Tim Hammond, CEO of Four Seasons Health Care said: “The award categories are all really important as we want to highlight the fantastic people we have working here in our organization. However, I believe it is important to acknowledge the special people who go above and beyond to help others in the community, and this is why our ‘Resident or Relative Contribution’ and ‘Volunteer of the Year’ awards are so important to us.
“I look forward to seeing all of our Regional winners at the National Finals in December.”

Last week we profiled some very special residents who shared their birthday with the Queen. Now we thought we’d show how our homes raised the flag to celebrate Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth II’s 90th birthday.
South Park Care Home in York held a spring fair, complete with sweet stalls, a hot dog stand and homemade cakes. The residents had a fantastic time, and were even joined by members of the local community who raised a glass for Her Highness. The home held a raffle with lots of fantastic prizes. Everyone felt like a winner and the day was rounded off beautifully.
Regency Care Home in Whitefield had a slightly more serene celebration. Residents watched the Queen on TV as she made her way up the Mall – some it appeared had very similar fashion sense to Her Royal Highness – and raised a glass to her health. The residents then took a look at a Royal Scrapbook detailing how things had changed in the 63 years Queen Elizabeth has been on the throne. Later on the residents enjoyed a quiz which had a royal twist.
Hesslewood House Care Home in Hessle celebrated the Queen’s birthday with a little bit of nostalgia. In 1981 the Queen opened the Humber Bridge. At that time Hesslewood was an orphanage. One of the maintenance men at the home was working at the orphanage, and alongside some of the children welcomed Queen Elizabeth II as she opened the bridge.
Church and Manor View Care Home in Doncaster had a royal visitor in the shape of team member Joanne Morley, who came dressed as the Queen. The residents and their families were also joined by local radio station TMCR who turned the home into a royal disco, at which everyone danced the afternoon away.
Up in Berwick-upon-Tweed at Hillside Lodge Care Home residents settled down and watched a film all about the Queen. After the movie the residents all donned their Union Jack hats and waved their flags as they sang ‘God Save the Queen’ quickly followed by Happy Birthday, before enjoying a well-deserved cup of tea and slice of cake.
At Croxteth Park Care Home in Liverpool the residents took to the garden for a party, all thanks to the lovely spring sunshine – and the team. The garden was decorated with bunting and the residents raised a glass to her Majesty’s health.
There was a stamp of approval at Hallgarth Care Home in Durham as resident Margaret Dawson aid tribute to Her Royal Highness by creating Queen Elizabeth II’s portrait made solely of stamps from the realm. Entertainer Colin Summer helped the afternoon go with a swing. The ‘Queen’ made time in her busy schedule to make a special guest appearance and after blowing out her birthday candles, she settled down to a slice of cake and cup of tea with the residents.
Up in Scotland the sun was shining too. At Cumbrae Lodge Care Home in Irvine everyone took to the garden for a party, complete with bunting, party hats and a BBQ. Everyone had a fantastic time and sang a special rendition of Happy Birthday for the Queen.
Meanwhile, over at Laganvale Care Home in Moira residents basked in the spring sunshine whilst having a royal BBQ before tucking into a beautiful birthday cake.
At Courtenay House Care Home in Kings Lynn the celebrations started with the team dressing up in the iconic 1920s fashion. Everyone sang the national anthem, before having another good old sing song this time focussing on classics from the 1920s. It did seem like a step back in time at the home.
Romford Grange Care Home in Romford threw a street party fit for a Queen, which included guest appearances from Soap royalty, June Brown (aka Dot Branning – Eastenders) and the Pearly Queen. The Court Care Home in Ballymoney also threw a royal birthday bash with residents wishing Queen Elizabeth II man happy returns.
Meanwhile at Marlborough Court Care Home in Thamesmead residents embraced their arty nature, creating all the decorations used to adorn the home, before settling down to a royal banquet all in honour of Her Majesty’s 90th year.
At Woodview Care Home in Lincoln they marked the Queen’s birthday by having their very own bake off competition. Cakes, brownies and flapjacks were presented to a panel of very willing residents to judge the competition. Entries were marked on both their appearance and taste and awards were given to best decorated, best taste and best overall bake. Best overall bake went to a carrot cake which was made by administrator Sarah.
Balmoral Care Home in Sheffield celebrated the royal birthday alongside some fluffy friends, as Pet’s At Home brought some rabbits for the guests to enjoy. Residents and the team dressed up and had a right royal time.
At Botham Hall Care Home in Huddersfield residents sat down to a royal tea party to commemorate Her Majesty’s birthday.
Other parties were held at other homes across the UK, including Highstone Mews Care Home, Hartwell Care Home, Ladyville Lodge Care Home and Cherry Trees Care Home. Meanwhile Laurels Lodge Care Home in Woodside held a party which everyone near and far attended. A resident's relative said: "the party was brilliant, the decorations was out of this world, a lot of work was put into it, and the food was great. The people were amazing, everybody was having fun and Norman who played the music was very good to the residents.”
Flower Park Care Home in Doncaster welcomed the community and the all of the royal family, including Princes William and Harry to their royal tea party, which then turned into a disco. Everyone had a fun afternoon.
In Nottinghamshire, at the Old Vicarage Care Home, everyone nominated resident Audrey to be Queen for the day - complete with tiara and pearls. The 'Singing Major' came in to entertain everyone, and got them all singing and dancing. Everyone then settled down with a glass of fizz and slice of cake - cut by Queen Audrey - to round off the day.
Everyone at Four Seasons wishes Her Majesty many happy returns.
