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.
First 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. Click here to take a look at one of our tempting menus! 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.
Foxburrow Grange is owned and managed by Outlook Care. We are a not for profit organisation so we reinvest all of our profits to further develop services to the people we support rather than paying shareholders. We have over 25 years’ experience in providing person-centred services to people with a wide range of specialist support and care needs. We are proud of Foxburrow Grange, where knowledge and experience have combined with the latest research and innovative facilities to bring dementia and complex nursing care together.
