Outlook Care have been involved in caring and supporting people for almost three decades and we understand that the thought of moving to a residential home can be a daunting one. We’d like to show you how we have created a home from home, where there is choice and control over how each resident lives their life and where everyone is always treated with courtesy, respect and dignity. We pride ourselves on delivering person centred care. We are all unique and our care plans are as individual as you are. Alongside meeting any specialist needs, your care plan will focus on your dreams, aspirations and the routines that are important to you.
We have designed an amazing building which we opened in 2013. Thoughtful interior design creates a calm and peaceful atmosphere – it’s a place where you can feel instantly relaxed – and it reduces stress and improves orientation with unfamiliar surroundings.
All rooms in our 66-bed, two-storey home are en-suite and, with their high ceilings and large windows, they’re light and airy too – each measures 20 m² which means there’s plenty of space for a favourite armchair or chest of drawers.
Each floor is fully accessible by good, spacious lifts. For added safety, we have installed a fire sprinkler system throughout the building.
On the ground floor there are 30 bedrooms for residents with dementia; all are fitted with the latest Dementia Safe system so residents can be attended to if there’s a problem day or night, while maximising privacy.
Each room also has its own terrace which opens on to secure gardens. To keep it feeling more like home, the ground floor rooms have been divided into two smaller ‘families’ of 15, and each one is completely self-sufficient with its own kitchen, lounge and dining area.
On the first floor there are a further 36 bedrooms for people who need nursing care; each has a ceiling track room hoist for people with high mobility needs. These rooms have also been divided into two smaller family units, with views to the landscaped gardens.
There are two indoor winter gardens and a large outside terrace so residents have access to sunlight year round.
Food is an important part of life at Foxburrow Grange and we like to make breakfast, lunch and dinner special. Our resident chef creates nutritious and exciting meal choices – including a range of firm family favourites – which are prepared daily.

Friends and family are always welcome to enjoy meal times too.
We also have a private dining room that can be pre-booked in advance for family and friends to enjoy a private lunch or tea with their loved one.

Feedback from CQC Inspector
Thanks again for the support given by yourself and your staff during the recent inspection of Foxburrow Grange, it was really good to see the positive impact that the work that you have all been doing has had upon the lives of people living at the service. I have attached some brief high level feedback from the visit:
- Staff understood how to safeguard people from harm and were confident in the action that they would take if any concerns arose.
- Risks to people’s daily lives had been identified, plans were in place to keep people safe and were reflective of people’s current needs.
- Staffing levels were appropriate to meet people’s needs.
- Medicines were well managed – especially given the difficulties that there had been with the current system.
- There was evidence of lessons learned and action plans were place in response to incidents and accidents.
- Staff had the skills and knowledge which ensured that they were able to meet people’s needs.
- Staff had access to regular supervision sessions and annual appraisals
- MCA’s had been completed and we saw no evidence of restrictive practice.

- Both during and after the inspection visit we have received positive feedback about the EOL care and support provided to people and their families.
