Befitting a Victorian Manor House, Otterbourne Grange exudes the space and charm that one would associate with a large family home. Stain-glass windows, double volume reception rooms, bay windows, a sweeping staircase, wood panelled reception, and period fireplaces are just some of the hallmarks of the property.
Accommodation is in single or double rooms with a choice of ensuite bathrooms. Approved plans will see the creation of a fourth reception area which will incorporate a large conservatory as well as facilitate a move to suite accommodation with wet-rooms. All rooms enjoy either a south or north facing aspect, and overlook the beautiful grounds.
Rooms are tastefully decorated to reflect the period architecture and are equipped with a nurse-call system, television sets, and where necessary, profiling beds and other specialist equipment. In some cases, residents are assisted to personalise their rooms with their own pieces of antique furniture, art, and family pictures.
Care & Staffing
Otterbourne Grange is registered with the Care Quality Commission to provide full Residential care and also specialist care for those living with Dementia, including Alzheimers disease.
We also provide Convalescent and Respite Care for short periods, and Day Care for those wanting to enjoy the benefits of life at the Home. Our staff are trained to ensure that the care we provide is not only expert, but also sympathetic and tailored to each of our residents' specific needs. We also offer Hairdressing and a visiting Podiatrist, along with a full Activity program discussed below.
Close co-operation between our Team of Carers and local general practitioners ensure that our residents benefit from regular visits, and are monitored and managed according to the detailed care system that we have in place. As always, we are happy for residents to be attended to by their own general practitioner if so desired.
Most of our Team of Carers have been with us for more than five years, whilst there are those that have been at the Grange for more than twenty years. Like some of our residents, they have many a story to tell, and this continuity has helped preserve the ethos and ambience of our very special Home.
Relatives, general practitioners, and even suppliers often compliment us on the jovial and personable nature of our staff. A true sense of "family" exits at the Grange. From our cleaners, through our carers, to management, you will find a happy group of people who enjoy what they are doing. We believe that it is this ingredient that is vital to creating the correct environment for the comfort and wellbeing of our residents.
