Life at Grosvenor Park Care Home
Our dedicated activity coordinator ensures each resident has something stimulating and enjoyable to look forward to each day. There are group pastimes and diversions, and one-to-one activities for those preferring quieter moments.
We run shopping trips to town and local places of interest, and entertainment evenings. Local churches also do regular visits.
Mum was reluctant to enter residential care, she loves it now she is there.
Company of her own age has been wonderful for her and the security has helped her settle well. She now has no worries and seems much happier.
Since my mum came in here, I am quite satisfied and happy with the way she has been looked after.
I can highly recommend this care home. The atmosphere is warm and friendly. My husband has settled very well here and the staff have gone out of their way to make sure he is happy, not always easy!, but they do their best.
I see mum every 3/4 weeks. The staff and management are all so nice. It is one of the best care homes you can stay in. My mum is very happy to be one of the residents here. The staff and management are so very helpful to the residents and the families.
The staff are very friendly and polite also patient with residents. The management go out of their way to help in any way possible. There is always different activities for residents if they want them and the management and staff are always looking for more things to do.
I have been a resident since 2006 and I have been very happy. The staff and carers are excellent. I would recommend anyone thinking of bringing a relative to this home that they will be well looked after.
I would recommend this care home as all residents appear friendly, dedicated and efficient and the residents all seem to be happy and content.
I am quite happy living here, the home is comfortable. The staff tend to my needs and are very good.
The homes is excellent clean & comfortable everyone makes me feel at home. The care staff are excellent with caring attitudes.
The home is lovely and clean in general, management are good the care staff are good.

Colleagues from Laurels Lodge Care Home in Woodside, Havencourt Care Home in Stonehaven and Cumbrae Lodge Care Home in Irvine all came together to do a skydive, raising money for residents in their care and Alzheimer's Scotland.
Tracey Rhodes, Resident Experience Facilitator for Scotland, said: "Everyone was really excited for the jump. One of them hadn't even been in a plane, and they completed it, which was a huge accomplishment. They managed to raise £4,000 which is fantastic. Well done everyone."
Congratulations everyone! We’re all proud of you.

Bob, a resident at Grosvenor Park Care Home in Darlington has a love of gardening, and decided he would use his passion to transform the gardens at the home he and his wife live in.
Bob arranged for some planters to be made from recycled materials, and got to work planting the residents’ favourite plants throughout the garden. All under the watchful eye of his wife Joan. He now maintains the gardens and ensures everyone enjoys the wonders of nature.
Angela Hird Home Manger said: “It is great that Bob and Joan were able to make Grosvenor Park their new home together, they have become very much part of the family. The residents and visitors are all able to enjoy Bob’s hard work and it is much appreciated. Thank you Bob.”

Two Darlington care homes actively using a quality of life programme to improve feedback services for their residents have earned an award for the scheme.
Grosvenor Park Care Home, off Burnside Road, and Riverside View Care Home, off Hutton Avenue, were brought into the digital age with iPads being used to get residents and their families to fill in questionnaires and give general feedback on any aspect of care.
The system, introduced by care home owner Four Seasons Healthcare, has now been recognised with an award from the UK Customer Experience panel as the homes move from paper-based copies to online responses.
Amanda Cunningham, Regional Managing Director of Four Seasons Healthcare, said: “This feedback has enabled our care teams to find and fix issues or niggles.
“When the majority of our residents are of the generation who don’t like to make a fuss, our quality of life programme has helped us to uncover customer needs that they might otherwise not have expressed.”
The Darlington homes are both rated “good” overall by the Care Quality Commission.
