Grangewood is a bright and welcoming care home offering gold standard care and a strong community atmosphere.

Grangewood is a purpose-built care home in the village of Shiney Row, close to Houghton-le-Spring in Tyne and Wear. We provide quality residential care for older people, including those living with dementia.

Our home has a strong community atmosphere. Most residents have lived locally all their lives - as have many of our colleagues. Often, when a new resident moves in, they're instantly among old friends and familiar faces.

Grangewood is close to the village library, medical centre and various churches. There's also a post office and a pub on our doorstep, and good transport links to Sunderland, Newcastle, Chester-le-Street and Durham. It all adds to the sense of being at the heart of things.

All of the bedrooms at Grangewood have en-suite facilities and are stylishly furnished. Each has a 24-hour nurse call system and telephone, internet and television connections. Your loved one is welcome to bring their own treasured possessions and items of furniture to help them to feel more at home.
