Welcome to Granby Rose Care Home
Granby Rose Care Home's setting alongside the Stray in historic Harrogate makes it an ideal location for leisurely walks. It is a 10-minute walk from Harrogate town centre, which is famous for its spas, gardens, architecture, shops, cafes, restaurants and, most importantly, Betty's Tea Room.
Nearby villages and towns provide even more history, with two castles within eight miles. Back at home, our internal garden is a safe area for residents and staff and relatives help them grow flowers and vegetables.
At Granby Rose Care Home, residents are considered part of the family. We put their health and happiness 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.
Life at Granby Rose Care Home
We write up a social activity plan for each resident, based on their life history, which helps us tailor activities to their likes and hobbies.
We also have a team of volunteers to provide an extra helping hand. We aim to help each resident continue with hobbies and can seek support in the community if necessary, for example from the local bowling club. We also have exercise classes, a lay preacher and booked entertainment throughout the month.
The staff here are marvellous, they wash me, feed me, and they never complain.
They are all really nice, they have me doing all sorts. I have been knitting and showing them how, it's really funny.
I am writing to thank you for making my mums life, from her stay with you, a fulfilling and positive time.
I want to write and thank you and all the staff for the highly professional and very kind way that you looked after my mother whilst she was with you.
I am always impressed and amazed at the patience and commitment of all the staff in every situation. Granby Rose is always a welcoming and warm environment for visitors and residents alike.
I would like to thank and praise you and all the staff who care for our friend and ex neighbour. Your home was a credit and I know from what I saw, she is very happy there.

People embark on a career path because it’s something they love, they yearn to develop, grow and blossom in their profession.
Here at Four Seasons Health Care, Care Assistants can up-skill themselves on the organisations Care Home Assistant Practitioner (CHAP) Programme.
On Thursday 20th December 2017, a graduation ceremony was held at Shawcross Social Club in Wigan, celebrating the achievements of 47 newly qualified CHAPs.
Rachael Junge, Managing Director for Four Seasons in the North West of England, said: “Here at Four Seasons Health Care we take great pride in our CHAP Programme, and everyone who undertakes the intense 12 week course. I want to congratulate all of the CHAPs for graduating; your hard work and dedication have paid off. These are the first CHAPs in my area, and I’m absolutely delighted at all of your achievements.
“The Programme is innovative and helps the CHAPs to provide invaluable support to the nurses in the homes.
“All the CHAPs have come through this long journey and I want to thank you for your commitment. I also want to thank the Nurse mentors who have guided and supported the CHAPs every step of the way. Well done everyone!”
The newly qualified CHAPs are now able to provide some general nursing duties such as medication rounds. This benefits the home as it enables the nurse to deal with more complex issues.

Four Seasons Health Care picked up three accolades on Tuesday 5th December 2017 at the Training Journal (TJ) Awards. Winning three categories meant that Four Seasons Health Care led the way, as they were the only organisation to win in multiple categories.
Who were the winners?
The Dementia Care Framework won the ‘Best Change Management Programme’, which is a fantastic achievement and further highlights the positive impact this is having on the lives of people living in Four Seasons homes with dementia.
The Judges commented: “We recognise Four Health Care work in the field of dementia care as innovative and thorough in its approach, being both effective and transformative. It had a bold vision that was well executed in a challenging environment.”
The Care Home Nursing Journal (CNJ), Four Seasons’ very own internal publication to develop nurse knowledge and share best practice won its category of ‘Best Organisational Development Programme'.
The Judges commented: “The design of this intervention, which on the surface appears very simple, completely meets the needs of the organisation and has had significant impact. A particular strength was that Four Seasons Health Care decided to make these resources freely available to anyone, making the impact even greater and is improving healthcare outcomes in care homes everywhere.”
Finally, Louise Morris the Care Home Assistant Practitioner (CHAP) Lead won the main award of the night and was crowned the ‘Learning and Development Professional of the Year’.
The Judges stated: “Louise has had a transformational impact, not only on the learning and development of staff at Four Seasons Health Care, but also on the well-being of residents. Through a review of an existing programme, Louise drove design and improvement which has had significant benefits through improved care, staff practice and confidence and commitment to their work and professional development.”
Congratulations to everyone on this fantastic achievement!

When Four Seasons Health Care’s Marketing Team put out a call that they wanted to make a difference to a care home in a single day, Granby Rose Care Home in Harrogate heeded their call.
They called the team in to ask for help in transforming their garden and courtyard area.
Pamela Rowe, Home Manager at Granby Rose, said: “We called the team in and asked them to help us create a sensory garden for residents and their families to enjoy throughout the summer. It’s safe to say they did a great job.”
After surveying the amount of work , Sales and Marketing Director Charlotte Oppong-Agyare set her team to work mowing, hoeing, strimming, clipping, cleaning, weeding, planting and painting.
Charlotte Oppong-Agyare said: “The team worked really well together to transform the garden and the courtyard. This was a great way to bring the marketing team together and live one of our company values of Making a Difference and contribute to the wellbeing of some of our residents in one of our care homes.”
Once the team had downed tools for the day, and added the final finishing touches, residents, relatives and some of the care team came and checked their handiwork. Some inspected the garden very thoroughly whilst others sat in the courtyard admiring the new vegetable patch.
One relative took the time to thank the team, saying: “I can’t believe the difference you’ve made. On behalf of all the residents and the relatives here I want to thank you. You’ve made a huge difference.”
