Foxburrow Grange Nursing and Dementia Care Home – Older People
Working closely with Stirling University’s Dementia Service Development Centre, we have developed a care home which makes fundamental differences to the lives of people living with dementia. Foxburrow Grange in Ypres Road is a five-minute drive from the centre of Colchester.
Residents with dementia
On the ground floor there are 30 bedrooms for residents with dementia and all are fitted with the latest Dementia Safe system. Each room has its own terrace which opens on to secure gardens. To keep it feeling more like home the ground floor rooms have been divided into two smaller ‘families’ of 15, and each one is completely self-sufficient, with its own kitchen, lounge and dining area. Everyone has a memory box filled with personal items which they can dip into whenever they wish.
Nursing home residents
On the first floor there are a further 36 bedrooms for nursing home residents, again divided into two smaller family units, each one having a view of landscaped gardens. There are two winter gardens and a large terrace which give them access to sunlight year round. There are ceiling hoists for people with high mobility needs too as well as a fire sprinkler system throughout the building.
