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.

As delayed transfers of care remain at record highs, how can we reduce unnecessary hospital stays for older people? That was the key question at an HSJ event held in association with Four Seasons Health Care.
The roundtable heard that the healthcare system often finds reasons not to deal with care home residents and looked at the success of an innovative collaboration between the NHS and care homes in Belfast.
With a collaborative approach between care homes and the NHS, older people are able to leave hospital and receive expert care, whilst assessing whether their long term future would be in their current home or a local care home. “The idea is that it would provide short term rehabilitation in conjunction with the two trusts in that area. The joint partnerships with the trusts I’ve worked with have just been amazing, and that’s what makes it work”, explained Janice Brown, Four Seasons’ regional manager for the Belfast and Newtownabbey area.
In addition to the improvements from a collaborative solution, South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust reported that the joint partnership approach of providing a bed in a care home reduced their yearly cost by more than half.

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.”
