Care and Facilities

Appletree Grange provides residential care to our residents and we also care for people at various stages of their dementia journey. We get excellent reviews from families and visitors and you would find it hard to walk down the corridor without seeing a smiling friendly face. All our rooms are en-suite and are decorated to a high standard. We have daily visits from our local GP and nurses who know all our residents very well and are available at a moments notice. Our hairdressers visit twice weekly and we also have a chiropodist who is a regular visitor. Our Home is very much a part of the local community and we have regular visits from the local schools and churches. We also visit our community centre on a weekly basis and the local garden centre, with its home-made scones and cakes, is a must see for all our residents.
