Great Things About The Grand, Nottingham Care Home
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.

Totalling 30 years of care/nursing experience my passion lies with care homes and I have extensive management experience as a home manager including troubleshooting, care home turnaround and Regional management.

Rebecca Thorpe, Residential Lead

Anca Periat, Home Administrator
I started working with New Care 6 years ago when I moved in UK with my husband and our two lovely daughters. I have had two internal promotions and I am so grateful for all the support I had during all these years from management team and all my colleagues. It is such a privilege to make a difference to our residents lives. I love my job and I really enjoy being part of New Care's team.
Ellen Robinson, Home Trainer
Having worked for New Care for 7 years I feel that from the very beginning I knew I had made the right decision to become an employee at New Care. As New Care have inhouse trainers in all of their homes this is a great advantage to the care industry as there is always opportunities for all staff members to learn new things and career develop within the home gaining support and guidance from the manager and home trainer. I aim to provide a top quality training to all staff, by doing this it allows staff to provide top quality care to the residents.
Bridget Peck, Wellbeing 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!
