Birchwood Grange Nursing Home on Preston Hill in Kenton, near Harrow, is a thriving, multi-cultural home drawing residents of various cultural backgrounds from across north London. We are just a 5-minute walk from Preston Road tube station and close to the woods and open spaces of Fryent Country Park. Our recent inspection by the industry regulator, the Care Quality Commission rated us Outstanding overall, a level attained by only 3.7% of care homes in the UK.
Our diversity is our strength, and our community is both strong and nourishing and the residents thrive on a high calibre of care and companionship. Birchwood Grange has well-grounded community links, and groups of all kinds come to visit us. Local schools, faith groups, voluntary organisations are all regularly coming through our doors. We see ourselves as an important part of our local Harrow and Brent communities and our inclusive approach ensures that family members and friends are always kept informed and join in with us.
No one will forget the experience when approaching the home and seeing the amazing decorative and ornamental flowers and animals, all of which are the inspiration of Mark Bird, our energetic and popular Home Manager. He brings that ‘je ne sais quoi’ to Birchwood Grange with his inspired leadership and enthusiasm and it’s worth a visit just to meet up with him and hear about the home and the outstanding residential care and companionship he and his team provide.
To see what we get up to you might want to view our dedicated Facebook that is kept updated with all the activities and goings on in the home, or call our friendly manager, Linda Simpson on 020 8385 1115.
Taking inspiration from our dynamic manager, our Well-being and Activity Coordinators see to it that there is never a dull moment in our nursing home and actively encourage everyone to be as in involved with life as they can be. Just have a look at our Facebook page to bear this out. If you were a resident here, you would be spoiled for choice. What would you choose?
• Reminiscence Caravan
• Very Ornate Lounge Garden
• Picnic Area
• Sensory Room
• Herb Garden
• Table Tennis Room
I’d go for all of them myself, but whatever the choice (and it’s a hard one) you can rest assured that the residents’ improved well-being is the yardstick by which we judge our success. Our programme of events is open to all relatives,and in fact our residents’ and relatives’ committee plays an active part in guiding the development of home life. And there is plenty going on outside the home too. Residents go up to London, to the local cafés and even make friends with the local firemen at the friendly neighbourhood fire station.
To reflect our vibrant mix of residents and backgrounds, we offer a range of dining experiences, from spices from the east, amazing vegetarian dishes to the more traditional roast beef dinners and the like. We particularly enjoy our meals that are themed around special or noteworthy events; sometimes we even go so far as to put on a wine and cheese tasting evening. We aim to make our mealtimes as varied and interesting as possible, all the while maintaining excellent quality and sound nutrition. After all, we are what we eat. One of our Chefs recently won the title of National Care Home Vegetarian Chef of 2019.
We enjoy growing our own herbs with help from our residents, as it gives that extra touch to the food, but we don’t stop there. Residents like to get involved in the food preparation themselves, and having their input helps our culinary team understand what makes a successful meal. We are always keen to welcome friends and family to see what we’ve been cooking up.
