The care home has a delightful setting, in a secluded valley just 2 miles south-east of Durham City, away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre. Set in 15 acres of well-maintained grounds, complete with a woodland walk and copious wildlife, the care home offers peace and tranquillity to those who desire it.
For those who like to socialise, there is plenty going on. Concerts, Music Evenings, Video Nights, Bingo and Coffee Mornings are just a few examples of regular events in the Care Home. Participation is entirely voluntary; no-one is under any pressure to join in.
In addition, the charity owns a mini-bus, which is used for shopping trips to the nearby supermarket and to Durham City. The mini-bus is also used for excursions to local places of interest and the theatre.
Just a few yards from the Care Home, the charity has its own Chapel, built in the late 12th Century. There is a Chaplain on-site, who regularly conducts religious service both in the Chapel and in the Care Home itself. Applications are welcomed from all older people, regardless of faith or lack of faith." Show less
