The Sands Care Home

Welcome To the Sands Care Home

The Sands opened 20 years ago on the site of the old Grand Hotel. Purpose built and sympathetically designed to replicate The Grand and complement its surroundings. With jaw dropping sea views, it is perfect to sit back and spend time taking in the environment which will never disappoint at anytime of year. Here at The Sands, we provide accommodation for 96 residents with rooms over 4 floors. The ground floor is dedicated to residential care and the remaining 3 floors to nursing care.

Our Aim

Our aim is to provide a high standard of person-centred care in a cosy, safe and happy environment, while maintaining our resident’s dignity and independence.

The Location

The Sands is located on Morecambe promenade, with panoramic views of the Bay and the Lakeland hills beyond.

The perfect spot to watch the beautiful sunsets for which Morecambe is world famous.


All rooms are single occupancy, most including an en-suite. All bedrooms are tastefully decorated and come with a flat screen TV and nurse call system.

Bedrooms on our nursing floors are equipped with adjustable electric beds and airflow mattresses to relieve pressure.

Residents are welcome to personalise their rooms with soft furnishings, pictures and some personal items and their furniture.

We are registered for 96 people - 75 beds providing nursing care, of both sexes.


Each floor has its own large lounge and spacious dining room over-looking the Bay.

Bath/shower rooms situated on all floors, easy wheelchair access throughout the building.

Ground floor is Residential Care and the first, second and third floors are Nursing Care.
