“To provide scope for independence in a mutually supportive environment and to deliver quality care by appreciating and responding to the changing needs of our clients”.
Castle Grove is registered with the Care Quality Commission for 26 beds in the following categories: Elderly, medical/chronic sick and Elderly, mentally ill (frail).
Our nurse manager is SUE THOMAS, RGN.
We employ 50 highly motivated staff, with a trained nurse on duty 24 hours a day. Castle Grove is committed to the training and development of all its staff, so that benefits may be passed on to our residents. We have been registered and re-recognised as Investors in People for nineteen years.
We specialise in pro-active care. We do this by regularly monitoring and assessing each patient. Bampton enjoys a dynamic up-to-date GP service which reviews our patients’ needs at least weekly. In this way we can address the individual’s care and medical needs and ensure prompt attention.
Being a small and select home offering high quality nursing care, we are able to deliver palliative care to the chronically sick patient.
Our philosophy of care ensures that our patients’ quality of life at all stages is of primary importance. We do this by supplying high quality nutritional meals using local fresh farm produce, creating interesting meals. We also make a special feature of birthdays, special occasions and feasts.
Castle Grove is renowned for its excellent cuisine – the proprietor was for many years a chef at The Dorchester Hotel, London and was also Swiss trained and established the high standard of menus and special meals. For more details of our culinary expertise, please click here.
Castle Grove continues to organise a wide range of activities for residents, future events being published in our “in-house” magazine.
