Castle Grove is registered with the Quality Care Commission for 26 places as a care home with nursing.
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 recently been re-recognised as Investors in People.
We specialise in pro-active care. We do this by regularly monitoring and assessing each patient. Bampton enjoys a dynamic up-to-date modern 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 residential and 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. Residents are encouraged to bring their own furniture and memorabilia. Pets are also encouraged, and where necessary, help is available to walk and feed them. We also make a special feature of birthdays, special occasions and feasts. Flat access into Bampton encourages independence and a useful choice of shops, post offices, library, tea rooms etc.
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. We were finalists in BBC Radio 4’s Food Programme Awards 2002.
