Life in a care home, may be very different from how you imagine it.

You want to feel confident you are choosing a home with the highest standards of care and comfort, without compromise.

We’re extremely proud to be recognised as one of the leading providers of nursing and residential care homes, across the North East of England. With an outstanding reputation for our dementia care, and other specialist areas.

We have 14 care homes in total, covering all corners of the North East of England, including Newcastle, Northumberland, Sunderland and York. Which means we bring together a great deal of experience in looking after the people who stay with us.

While each of our care homes has its own individual style and range of facilities, our homes also have many things in common: friendly, highly experienced staff, a warm, welcoming atmosphere with facilities and support created with your needs in mind. So whatever you are looking for in a care home, you can feel confident a Wellburn home is the right choice.

Our standards of excellence are founded on the fundamental principles of care without compromise.

A community where friendships flourish, creating a sense of home sweet home.

You may be starting to consider care options for yourself or a loved one. It’s never an easy subject to think about and can be a difficult time for the whole family, but life in a care home may be different from how you imagine it.

Our homes offer you the excellence and experience that you deserve. Whether you come for a long-term stay or just a short break, we’ll do everything we can to make our home feel like your home.

Friends and relatives are welcome at all times – in fact, we actively encourage them to stay as involved as possible to ensure that your time here is fulfilling and happy.

We’re here for you every step of the way. We’ll talk you through the process and how we can help with possible concerns you may have. There are several ways placements can be funded and we’ll direct you or your loved one to the appropriate agency if this is required.

With this inclusive approach, first-class hospitality and industry-leading standards of expert care, we are proud to say that we represent quality and value.

We promise never to let our standards slip below excellent. This is care without compromise.

CARE WITHOUT COMPROMISE
Providing care without compromise means recruiting the very best staff. Our registered nurses and care assistants are supervised by our home managers and provide 24-hour support, based on your individual care requirements.

Our chefs deliver a delicious menu of home cooked dishes and look after your nutritional requirements, while our activity co-ordinators ensure you can get involved in as many of our activities as you wish.

We also have many other experienced staff, looking after all the other aspects of running our homes, including our dedicated gardening team, keeping our award winning gardens in tip top shape.

TRAINING OUR STAFF
We aim for all of our staff to be  qualified from NVQ level 2 or higher, along with specialists at the forefront of dementia care. As well as being highly trained in their jobs, our staff know how to treat and care for you as an individual, remembering the little things which are really important to you.

COMFORTABLE LIVING
Across all of our fourteen homes, four of which are Grade II listed buildings, we offer tastefully decorated bedrooms, with individual colour schemes and furnishings, plenty of comfortable sociable areas and attractive outside spaces which residents have the opportunity to enjoy.

We will also help you decorate your room with your favourite ornaments and photos.

ONGOING INVESTMENT
We continually re-invest profits back into our homes, whether that’s to enhance existing communal areas or bedrooms, expand the space and facilities, invest in up-to-date equipment or provide training for our staff.

We are always looking for ways to improve our homes and since 2012 we’ve invested more than £4 million in building work and refurbishment, throughout our homes. Investment in this area is something we pride ourselves on.

We couldn't be more proud of our region and it's where our roots are firmly planted.

OUR COMMUNITY
We’re proud of our region and our roots. We believe the North East has so much to offer and our communities are unrivalled for their friendliness and warmth. These communities in which our homes are built are very important to us and our residents; in most cases, this is the community in which our residents have grown up and lived in.

WELLBURN FRIENDS
We have an active policy to embed ourselves and our activities in the local culture as much as possible through our Wellburn Friends initiative. Created to reinforce our message that we’re not just another care home, we’re your local care home. Wellburn Friends range from resident’s families to local suppliers, schools and groups. Friends that have been built up over years of trust and new friends who have just discovered Wellburn, are all part of the family.

OUT AND ABOUT
To get our residents out and about amongst our friends and local community, we have a dedicated fleet of vehicles for weekly outings. These can range from a day trip to the beach or an evening at the theatre.

THE WELLBURN POST
We’re also extremely pro-active in getting involved with local groups and businesses to show our support and thank them for theirs. One of the many ways we do this is through our quarterly publication The Wellburn Post. Each issue is packed full of news, stories and features, with regular contributions from residents families, local schools and communities.

Part of our ongoing commitment to our region. Your region.
