We care about living life.

Grove Place Nursing Home

At Grove Place, we are developing a purpose-built nursing home, comprising a specialist nursing and dementia care home, coupled with close care apartments. The proposed accommodation will comprise 30 specialist nursing and dementia bedrooms, along with generous shared communal facilities, stunning landscaped gardens and car parking. The building will also include 20 close care apartments. The mix of accommodation proposed will naturally complement the type of accommodation currently provided in the Village for a more independent lifestyle and will extend the range of continuing care offered at Grove Place.

Our Philosophy

Purpose-built, boutique nursing homes that are smaller and more intimate are key to the well-being of our residents. By offering a real choice we can create truly personalised experiences in vibrant and caring environments. We are committed to providing peace of mind through safe, responsive care monitored by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
