  • Where you'll work
  • Grangewood is a light and airy care home where you’ll discover a strong community atmosphere and gold standard care.

    Grangewood is a purpose-built care home in the village of Shiney Row, close to Houghton-le-Spring in Tyne and Wear. We provide high quality residential and respite care for older people, including people living with Alzheimer's and other types of dementia.

    We’re very proud of having been awarded Sunderland City Council’s gold standard for quality care. The awards cover a range of criteria, including offering residents a healthy, nutritious diet, delivering high standards of hygiene and health and safety, and providing a range of activities to promote residents’ all-round health and wellbeing.

    When you first visit Grangewood you’ll notice the strong feeling of community presence.  The majority of our residents were born in the local area and have lived here all their lives. Most of our team members, some of whom have been here since we opened in 2005, are also local. So often a new resident will move in and immediately be among old friends and familiar faces.

Having a criminal record will not necessarily prevent you from working with us, it will depend on the nature of the role and background of any offence.
