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.

Four Seasons Health Care were finalists in nine categories at this year’s LaingBuisson Awards, and at the awards ceremony on Wednesday 15th November, the organisation was awarded with a well-deserved award.
The LaingBuisson Awards recognise and celebrate industry excellence and innovative services in the public, private and third sectors.
Four Seasons Health Care scooped the award in the ‘Nursing Practice’ category in recognition of the innovative approach to the advancement of nursing knowledge and nursing education within the care home sector.
Our Care Home Nursing Journal (CNJ) along with our individual Nursing Twitter channel (@FSHCNurses) won plaudits with the judges for being totally unique within the care sector.
Furthermore, there was a recognition of the achievements of the front-line nurses who have written articles, presented at conferences, won scholarships and been finalists at numerous nursing awards in the past 12 months. Again, these achievements are unique within the care sector.
Joanne Strain, Head of Nursing, said: “This is a terrific result for Four Seasons Health Care and real recognition of our growing influence amongst care home nurses in the UK. This is only the start of our journey and I want to dedicate this award to all our tremendous nurses across the FSHC family”.
Carol Cousins, Northern Ireland Managing Director, also commented on the award success. She said: “This award is recognition for inspirational nurse leaders in creating the first clinical nursing journal in the independent care home sector – well done to all involved”.
While CNJ editorial board member, and Clinical Lead Nurse of Cameron House Care Home in Bury, Craig Priestley stated: “I’m so proud we won – the CNJ is one of the best learning resources we have for Four Seasons Nurses. It has shaped and improved nursing practice and helped to improve quality of life – well done to all involved in its production!”
If you’d like to take a look at the award winning journal, it’s available on the Four Seasons website in the publications area.

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.”
