The Grange is a wheelchair accessible residential care home providing support and accommodation for up to 27 individuals who have a physical disability or neurological condition.

We support individuals who have cerebral palsy, an acquired brain injury, stroke, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, spina bifida and hydrocephalus, as well as individuals living with Parkinson’s or Huntington’s Disease.

Our dedicated team of highly skilled and trained support workers have experience with PEG/NG care, wound management, and the provision of end of life care. We provide support including personal care, health and well-being, rehabilitation, community engagement, enablement, volunteering and activities.

We are near to Poole Harbour/Quay and Sandbanks Beach, together with being located on the bus route between both Bournemouth and Poole with lots amenities in the local area. There is also a picturesque viewpoint over Poole Park and beyond within walking distance of The Grange.

All our bedrooms have a tracking hoist system fitted and our bathrooms are provided with spa baths. There is also a main passenger lift to support access throughout the home.

We have several courtyard areas and patio for enjoying the summer months and a lovely conservatory for when the weather turns colder.

Alongside our kitchen where we prepare fresh and tasty meals for our residents, we have satellite kitchens throughout the home where individuals can use and maintain or improve their independence with daily living skills.

Our activities worker and volunteer coordinator support the individuals living at The Grange and volunteers also help to support individual interests and provide activities.
