The Grand is a true home from home.
A ‘New Generation’ care home, The Grand is a purpose-built 82 bed care facility, situated on Greythorn Drive in West Bridgford, Nottingham. Expertly designed, the home meets all CQC requirements and provides the highest standards of safety, comfort and care. Benefiting from a prominent and spacious corner location, The Grand is an attractive building that blends traditional brickwork with contemporary full height window features, reaching from the ground floor up to the top floor.
Internally, the attention to detail is impressive. The high specification and décor of The Grand have been carefully considered by an interior designer, creating stylish yet comfortable and practical spaces with infection control built into the environment. Arranged over four floors, the care home only offers bedrooms with en suite wet rooms. It also provides a beautiful lounge and dining room on each floor, as well as an assisted spa bathroom. Additional facilities include a library, exercise area and a hairdresser with nail bar.
It is fresh, elegant and welcoming; a home for life.

Great Things About The Grand
Our Care Philosophy
“To build and operate homes that celebrate the wonder of people and provides a quality of care that is delightful.” It is our aim at The Grand to enable all of our residents to maintain the highest level of independence and achieve their full potential whatever that may be – physical, intellectual, emotional or social. We believe this philosophy can be achieved by providing professional, person-centred care, nurturing each resident individually exploring and understanding their needs with the appreciation that care requirements may change and that the team will be responsive to those changing needs. We are there every step of the way.
In line with our care philosophy at The Grand, we have a “Magic” table or “Tovertafel” in the dementia community. There is significant literature on the positive effects on dementia of play. From our observations, the impact of the “Magic Table” is extremely positive for residents living with dementia. Residents and their relatives alike can play freely on the “Magic Table”. In addition, this is a particularly useful opportunity for involving children to experience positive play with their older relatives. New Care is one of a small group of providers who are leading the way in the UK, by purchasing the “Magic” table as part of our overarching strategy to provide opportunities for our residents living with dementia and their relatives to have fun together.
In order to develop the wellbeing aspect of the service at The Grand, we have invested in ‘OOMPH!’ well-being. Oomph! provides training to our entire staff team to deliver a 360 degree approach to wellbeing, demonstrating a positive impact at all times. The training and support packages enable our staff to deliver everyday mental stimulation, regular, fun physical activity and new experiences & connections for our residents. We have enabled all team members at The Grand to provide a set of complementary services to enhance the mental, physical and emotional wellbeing of our residents.

Bridget Peck, Wellness Coordinator
I have worked for New Care for over 4 years. When I first walked into The Grand I was amazed that a care home could look like a hotel; I was lost for words. I began as a Senior Carer and then transferred to the Wellbeing Team. I was then given the opportunity to lead the Wellbeing team. New Care is a very family orientated and person centred company; nothing is too much trouble to meet the resident’s needs and wishes. I look forward to coming to work each day, and I can’t believe I get paid to do a job that I love!
