Meet The Manager

Euan Bell is Home Manager at The Grange.

“For me, kind care is delivering the best possible support with the Resident at the centre of what we do” Achieving this by using a person-centred approach.

As a dedicated healthcare professional, Euan has gained a wealth of experience in providing care and support to elderly people, to enrich their lives. He is a knowledgeable and dedicated leader who is passionate about delivering the highest standards in care and quality of life for Residents.

Outside of work, Euan likes to keep active on his bike cycling around County Durham and North Yorkshire. He also enjoys running having completed the Edinburgh Half Marathon, The Great North Run, Darlington 10k along with many more and he also enjoys the occasional round of golf.

We believe your life at The Grange Care Home, in Darlington, should include the best care, the best of life and the best environment.

All our residents are supported to live an active and fulfilled life. Our person-centred care enables residents to keep on doing the things they’ve always loved – and often the things they perhaps thought they could no longer enjoy.

As part of our Darlington-based community, our residents can help themselves to drinks and snacks, help out in the garden and other hobbies and exercise their usual routines which enable residents to make their lives theirs.

The facilities at The Grange allow residents to enjoy other everyday routines that keep them independent, including having their weekly hair and nail appointment or catching up with family and friends.

Autumna has invited care providers to evidence the infection control measures they are carrying out, above and beyond those laid out by the government, in order to keep residents, staff and visitors safe.

What we're doing to keep residents & visitors safe

All visitors have a LFD test before entering the home. All visits within the home are in a specific area so people are not wondering around the home. All visitors are asked to wear appropriate PPE.

Infection Control Initiatives in place

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.

Wireless Internet access (WiFi)

Yes, our care home has WiFi in all our resident’s rooms.

Mobile Phone Network Coverage (mobile “signal”)

Yes, our care home has mobile phone signal in all our resident’s rooms.

Telephone for external calling
