Spencefield Grange is a purpose-built home, situated in a quiet residential area of Leicester within easy reach of the city centre.

The home provides 24-hour residential care for 60 people.

At Spencefield Grange there are 58 single bedrooms and 1 shared bedroom. Of which 57 bedrooms have en-suite facilities, and resident’s are encouraged to bring their own items to make their room feel homely.

Meal times are such an important part of life at Spencefield Grange, and we recognise that appetising and nutritious food is vital to the health and wellbeing of all the residents. We offer a varied, healthy and plentiful menu that is very popular with our residents. Our in-house qualified head chef is committed to preparing fresh, home-cooked food using local ingredients where possible. He is also happy to cater for special dietary requirements. As well as breakfast, lunch and dinner, snacks and refreshments are available throughout the day.

Activities and socialising is an essential part of daily life at Spencefield Grange. So our dedicated Activities Coordinator works closely with the residents to create a varied programme of events, activities and excursions around their hobbies and interests. These include coffee afternoons, music therapy, tai chi exercise, bingo evenings, themed dinner evenings, as well as many more. Residents are always encouraged to remain active and pursue interests, including arts, crafts and reading. We also arrange visits to local places of interest, and our Activities Coordinator makes sure there is something for everyone and all are invited to join in. Our focus is on interaction on all levels, regardless of ability.

Coronavirus Update:

You must have a negative COVID-19 test result within 48 hours prior to admission.

During these unprecedented times of COVID-19, and the pandemic that has ensued, at Spencefield Grange we put the resident’s and staff’s health at the forefront of everything we do. Although we have in place robust policies, cleaning procedures, and acceptance/visiting criteria, we still must go above and beyond to protect the wellbeing and lives of everyone at the home.

Therefore, when accepting a new resident into Spencefield Grange there are a set of criteria that must be adhered too:
1. must have a negative covid-19 test result within 48 hours prior to admission
2. must not be displaying any symptoms of covid-19 at the time of admission
3. must have to self-isolate in one of our dedicated isolation bedrooms for a maximum of 14 days.

With the new covid-19 testing regime and capability introduced by government guidelines for care homes, we always have ample test kits on site. Therefore, if points 1 and 2 outlined above are complied with when coming to reside at the home, we are happy to test the resident again at day 5-7 to check if any symptoms have developed. If that test result is negative then we are happy to end the isolation period for the new resident at day 10.

We understand the impact this isolation has on the elderly and so try to accommodate as best as we can through the 2nd test process mentioned above.

Visiting Loved Ones:
Regarding visiting your loved one once placed at Spencefield Grange, we have a dedicated self-enclosed visiting pod that can be booked by appointment only. On entering the pod the following will be required:
1. Temperature taken
2. COVID-19 Questionnaire to be completed
3. Track & Trace to be adhered too

We understand the importance of touching and hugging your loved ones, due to the current climate we feel that restricting this is safer for all concerned.

Please accept our apologies and feel assured that your loved ones health and well being is our priority.

If you would like any further information then please contact the home directly and speak to the Manager/Senior Carer.
