Keeping our homes happy and healthy


At Gracewell our focus has always been the health, happiness and fulfilment of our residents. It’s why over 95% of our care homes are rated as good or outstanding by the CQC. And in this current climate we don’t believe that should change. That’s why we’ve put in place a range of rigorous measures to help reduce the risk of COVID-19 infection within our homes, so that we can get on with the important job of protecting the independence and emotional wellbeing of those in our care.


"As soon as you walk through the door, you are greeted in a friendly, cheery way and made to feel very welcome by everyone. My father has been at Gracewell of Maids Moreton for just over a year now, and I have nothing but praise for the way in which he is looked after. He is treated with kindness, thoughtfulness and always receives an outstanding level of care...during these difficult Covid times, they have been incredibly impressive in the way in which they have looked after the residents. I can't thank them enough for all their hard work.”

Daughter of Gracewell of Maids Moreton Resident

Roll out of the vaccine

"The ongoing roll-out of the vaccination programme continues to support our own road map out of Covid and enabled us to escalate our campaign to provide meaningful contact between our residents and their loved ones.”

Anna Selby, Head of Gracewell Healthcare's Covid-19 Taskforce

 

So far, team members and residents across numerous Gracewell care homes have received their vaccinations or are booked to receive them.

It’s a new dawn – book your place at Gracewell

There’s no doubt that things are beginning to look a little brighter. The vaccine rollout is going well, we’re gradually moving out of lockdown and we’ve got safety measures in place to enable us to welcome more visitors into our homes. There are warmer days around the corner and we’re looking forward to making the most of them.

And with this new season comes the perfect time for a fresh start. 

Choosing a care home for a loved one - or for yourself - is never easy; there are lots of important things to consider. But after an uncertain period, what better way to start a new chapter than by seeing for yourself what’s on offer at Gracewell?  We’re offering 20% off respite until the end of June, so now is a great time to give us a try.

Join us for a G&T in the garden

The scent of the hyacinths, forsythia in full bloom and bees and butterflies humming round the blossom. Our well-tended gardens are the perfect place to relax with new friends, catch up with family or simply get some vitamin D while you watch the world go by.

And since our gardens are all designed with accessibility in mind, there’s nothing to stop you and your loved ones spending quality time wandering the grounds together. At Gracewell we encourage all our residents to spend time pursuing the things that keep them happy and mentally healthy. And our outside spaces in spring, are a wonderful place to begin. 

Looking after your body, mind and spirit

Our highly qualified nursing staff work hard to ensure the physical health of our residents. Keeping them comfortable and giving them the confidence to live as independently as possible. But at Gracewell we believe it’s our duty to go further than that.

We’ve introduced a programme of stimulating activities that help to exercise not just the body, but the mind and the spirit too. From flower arranging and comedy nights to yoga and massage, we believe it’s never too late to discover new things you enjoy. 

Mixing socially, moving at a level that suits you and finding new pastimes and pleasures, one thing’s for certain: find your place at Gracewell and life will never be boring.

Making every day count

At Gracewell we believe that every day should be the best day. In fact, you’ll notice all of our team are committed to making life fulfilling and enjoyable for the residents in our care. In everything we do, whether it’s leading a fitness class, sharing a letter from a loved one or simply holding a hand, our goal is to make today brighter in whatever way we can.

Moving into a care home should feel like the start of something wonderful, where every day is filled with opportunity. Coffee in the garden with friends. Taking part in an art class. Enjoying a delicious dinner with family. It’s these small pleasures that make life at a Gracewell home such a special place.

Working hard to keep you safe

The world may have changed a lot in the last year, but one thing that has never been in doubt is our unwavering commitment to keeping our residents safe. It’s just one of the reasons that over 95% of our care homes are rated as Good or Outstanding by the CQC.

We’re proud of the way our dedicated team has adapted to the new challenges we’ve faced. We’ve listened to advice and taken time to learn and improve the way we do things. From enhanced cleaning to safer visitor practices to testing, you can find out more about how we’ve stood up to Covid-19 here.

We’re confident we’re doing everything in our power to keep our residents healthy and happy while still enabling meaningful contact with loved ones whenever possible. And we’ll continue to roll out our vaccination programme to staff and new residents, meaning things will only continue to improve.

A care team you can rely on

At Gracewell, it’s not all about the modern facilities and stimulating activities you can enjoy while you’re here. We know we’d be nothing without the people who make it all happen. From caterers to carers, managers to maintenance, we rely on a highly qualified team who make it their duty to treat our residents with the utmost respect and dignity at all times.

We’ll often be found chatting with residents in one of our intimate lounges or reminiscing with our memory care patients over a shared craft project. Because it’s the human touch that is so important to the way we do things.

And it’s that human touch that has been missing from our lives for too long.

Time for a fresh start? Time to take your place at Gracewell and feel good.
