Life at The Grange Care Centre
The Grange Care Home for older people is a large Victorian House standing in its own grounds just a few hundred yards from the centre of the historic market town of Selby.
The house has enjoyed a varied history since becoming a nursing home in the 1960s and was largely destroyed by a fire around the turn of the century. Many local people knew it as a school in the 1940s and it is often referred to as ‘Jumbo Castle’ in memory of its original owner, believed to be a tea merchant, who built the house in the late 19th century.
Many of the house’s original features, including the ceilings, ornate covings, and stained glass windows in the main house have all been retained along with the staircase and large landing which is popular with those seeking quiet relaxation.
Having undergone extensive refurbishment and redecoration, the home has 28 bedrooms, some with ensuite, dedicated to caring for residents with dementia. The Grange has a dedicated activities organiser and we enjoy regular visits to the home by local school children and choristers from the Cathedral.
