Connectivity for resident testing, monitoring & communications

Infection control and the safety of both residents and staff often requires quarantine measures and the isolation of care home residents. To test, monitor and allow residents to communicate with relatives, the prevalence of room-level connectivity within the home is becoming increasingly relevant.

Key Information for St Cross Grange.pdf
Our Building and Facilities

St Cross Grange is a 64 bedded home with a range of different styles and types of room suitable to meet the needs and tastes of most potential residents. The majority of the time our home is nearly full and when we do have availability it is often for a short period of time because the home is very popular and has a very good local reputation. For that reason it is hard to give specific details about any individual rooms available, the best way to find out more information is to pop in and see the available rooms for yourself.

The home is split over 3 main floors all serviced by 2 lifts in the centre of the home, there is a nice dining room, a main lounge, a club room and a hairdresser.

I feel very lucky and honoured to be doing a job that I love.

I enjoy making a difference in people’s lives. I enjoy workingwithin a large team, providing person-centred care to residents. My hobbies include baking, reading and travelling.

Senior Care Assistant

After working in domiciliary care for 18 months, six years ago I decided to move to a care role at St Cross Grange. Working in health and social care means that I hear stories old and new, I earn a sense of achievement and I genuinely get to make adifference to someone’s life – no matter how big or small – every single day.

Care Assistant

I ran a pub for 10 years and got on well with older people who visited. I moved to the south 7 years ago, applied to work at St Cross Grange and never looked back. I love the fulfilment you achieve in helping to look after our residents and getting to know them. Every day is different!
