Grafton Manor

Grafton Manor

Grafton Manor is a 19-bedded residential service, which supports individuals with an acquired brain injury (ABI), including traumatic brain injury (TBI) and progressive neurological conditions (PNCs). The home is located semi-rurally, in the village of Grafton Regis, close to Northampton.

We can manage more acute needs including hoisting and PEG feeding, and have on-site nursing input to support our residents with their physical needs.

Our approach

The care provided by the dedicated staff team at Grafton Manor is aimed at helping people who have experienced behavioural and physical changes as a consequence of brain injury, to ensure that they can live as full a life as possible.

We provide person-centred care which is uniquely tailored to the individual’s needs and preferences. Everyone who lives at Grafton Manor has a person-centred plan, designed with input from each resident, their family members, social workers and other professionals. Our rigorous care plans enable our team to meet the needs of every resident and support them to achieve positive outcomes.

Our main focus at Grafton Manor is to:

  • Maximise individual choice and autonomy
  • Promote empowerment and community inclusion
  • Enable the resident to obtain a level of independence that suits their needs and goals

We aim to ensure the people we support live a happy and fulfilled life. This may include support to move on to live independently in the community, whether this is in one of our supported living services or in their own home without requiring specialist support.

Peter's story*

*Name has been changed

“My son suffered a stroke in January and after spending 10 weeks in hospital he was referred to Grafton Manor. I was feeling very anxious due to the fact that as well as physical needs my son also had mental health needs. 

After a period at Grafton Manor the difference in him was amazing, and not just physically but mentally as well, especially his confidence.

The way that discharge was carried out was perfect for my son, as it was done gradually. Both my son and myself will be forever grateful for the care he received while at Grafton Manor and I would most definitely highly recommend this amazing place.”
