Innage Grange is an 83 bed home for older people situated in the beautiful market town of Bridgnorth, Shropshire. The home has a unique street interior design that brings the home to life and the “market stalls” encourage the residents to shop and use the hairdressers on a regular basis.
The home has a busy café used by the residents, their families and friends and external professional visitors. A newly decorated hairdressing salon offers hair care, nail care and beauty treatments.
Innage Grange gives you the feeling of being outside while being in a safe environment. Its design enables residents to sit and watch all that is going on and to socialise with each other.
Innage Grange provides a service for residential residents with and without dementia, and has a nursing wing catering for both people living with dementia and needing nursing care, and general nursing clients on two separate units with 31 en-suite nursing rooms.
With this wide range of services it is hoped you can remain within the home even if your care needs change. We have established excellent relations with local GPs and the wider primary health care team. In addition we can offer appointments with other health professionals, such as opticians, dentists and the local chiropodist.
The gardens at Innage Grange are accessible to all with a number of courtyards offering private space, and these truly provide a haven in the summer months.
The meals are freshly cooked on the premises and can cater for all dietary needs and there is always a good choice of food on offer. The home offers lots of opportunities to engage in activities and has established strong links with the local community including some exciting intergenerational work

Welcome to Innage Grange, our beautiful home in Bridgnorth, and a very warm welcome from our manager Claire Childs.
Claire is a dedicated and passionate member of the Coverage Care team and having worked at Innage Grange for the last 30 years, it’s become a huge part of her life. So much so, Claire often refers to it as her second home.
Influenced by her own mother’s career in the health sector, Claire knew from a young age she wanted to follow in her footsteps and become a healthcare professional.
From as young as 13 she worked in a residential home and then at 17 went to college to study health and social care. By the age of 19, Claire was appointed as a care assistant at Innage House and over the years has progressed to become home manager – a position she is very proud to hold.
Like all our managers, Claire is driven to deliver the highest standard of care possible to ensure the wellbeing of residents.
She is passionate about person-centred care and making sure every resident is treated as an individual, with respect and dignity so they can live the lives they want whilst in care.
Claire has a wealth of knowledge and expertise in the care sector and has been responsible for implementing a range of projects to improve the service at Innage Grange over recent years.
She leads a caring, compassionate and dedicated team of nurses, carers, domestic staff and caterers, who like her, feel honoured to care for so many loved ones.
If you or a relative would like to get in touch with Claire for a chat about the services on offer at Innage Grange, contact 01746 762112 or email email@example.com.

Your family and friends can visit at any time, even overnight if there’s a room available and we’ve had advance notice. And yes, please let the kitchen staff know and we make a small charge for meals which will be explained by the teams in the homes when you visit and also on admission within our initial information packs.
Can I go out or on holiday?
Yes, subject to appropriate support and your level of need we can make arrangements for days out too and sometimes for short breaks and long weekends as well.
What does it cost to live at Innage Grange?
The fees charged depends on your needs, accommodation and support and the type of care you’re looking for. Together we will discuss and assess your requirements and the home manager will give you an inclusive cost for your care and accommodation. Any additional charges and also deposit will be discussed and are explained in our contract and other documents which you will need to sign on admission. You may also be eligible for funding from the local authority or the NHS dependent on your care needs and your funding position.
Where can I find funding advice?
We know how complex the means-tested funding position in terms of UK social care is.
If you have assets, assessed by social services above £23,250 in England then it is likely that you will need to fund all of the accommodation care and support costs under current UK legislation. We will be clear on what our fees are on admission.
If you have assets below £23,250 then the Local Authority may fund part or potentially all of your accommodation care and support. Prior to admission we will need to be advised of the fee to determine whether or not the Local Authority contribution is adequate enough to cover the full fees. We appreciate this is sensitive and we talk to you and social services colleagues prior to admission.
It is important to understand each person is different in terms of both their needs and funding position. Whilst we cannot give funding advice we will be clear on your fees and charges. You can also find a wealth of information via Age UK or Age Concern https://www.ageuk.org.uk/
Where can I find more information on dementia?
Dementia affects everyone differently and we can talk to you directly about issues or concerns you might be facing. Alternatively, the Alzheimer’s Society has a wealth of information available on its website https://www.alzheimers.org.uk/
