Caring for a loved one can be immensely rewarding but it can also be very tiring on the family. At Southcare Homes we provide short stays of a few days or longer, enough time to provide a short respite for a carer to “recharge the batteries”.
We offer 24-hour care for all residents. A unique personal care plan is prepared for each resident and it is reviewed regularly. All information, data and records relating to residents remains confidential and is protected. Visits to the dentist, optician and physiotherapist are arranged when required.
Palliative care, or end of life care, is care where a recovery from illness is not expected. At Southcare Homes we understand how upsetting this final stage of life can be for everyone. We offer compassionate and sensitive care.
A homely place with plenty of flair.
Awarded OUTSTANDING in ‘Caring’.

Hello, I'm Iwona
Registered Care Home Manager
Grasmere Rest Home
I joined the care sector in 2013 because I wanted to make a difference in people’s lives. I started as a care assistant, looking after vulnerable adults. I slowly worked my way up the ranks and was supported by some amazing people along the way. Now, I’m really enjoying being the new manager at Grasmere. The care team are really dedicated to excellence and their commitment is contagious. I really enjoy spending time talking to with my residents and their families. The most rewarding part of being in care, for me, is helping those in our care make the best decisions for them and support them in leading fulfilling and happy lives.
