OUR PHILOSOPHY OF CARE
At Vida Healthcare we are committed to providing the highest quality care for people living with dementia.
Long Term Residential and Nursing Care
At Vida Grange we are dedicated to providing the highest quality care for people living with dementia. Each of our residents receives care that is specific to their needs and lifestyle, delivered by a highly skilled and dedicated care team.
Our care is ‘person-centred’ which means we take the time to get to know our residents and support them as individuals. By learning about family and friends, hobbies and interests, likes and dislikes, we can make meaningful connections, helping people to feel at home and at ease.
We are passionate about providing the most effective care by keeping up to date with the latest research and best practice in dementia care, as well as drawing on the high level of expertise we have in house. We champion the use of alternative therapies wherever possible for improved wellbeing.
We put values at the heart of our recruitment in order to find the most compassionate carers. Every member of the Vida team receives specialist training in order to deliver the highest quality care.
Each of Vida Grange’s eight houses has a dedicated House Manager to ensure the service runs effectively and smoothly.

Day & Respite Care
Vida Grange offers flexible day care services to older people living with dementia who are still living at home.
Every effort has been made to create a flexible service that suits the needs of the individual to allow them to get the very best experience from their stay. We offer a 6 hour session, however, this can be extended and charged on an hourly rate to support families. Times are also negotiable. Following a comprehensive day care assessment of needs we will develop a plan of care with the client and the family to support a positive experience during their short stay with us. This plan of care may include opportunity for a bath, for example, or foot care / hair styling. It may also extend to medical assessment and social activity and engagement opportunities.
Vida Grange also welcomes respite stays if there are any current vacancies within the home. This will follow a comprehensive assessment of needs to ensure the transition from home to the care home does not cause any undue distress to the client or their family. Unfortunately, Vida Grange cannot offer advanced bookings or respite as the home is usually at full occupancy.
Family & Support
At Vida we strongly believe in family life and the importance of maintaining connections with family and friends to a person’s health and wellbeing. Vida Grange is ideal for friends and relatives to visit and spend quality time with their loved ones. You can drop in for afternoon tea in our garden café, for lunch in the restaurant or for a drink in B’s Teas Coffee Shop anytime.
