The ladies at our Nightingale Hall home in Richmond enjoy a little trip out-and-about town. One of their favourite stops for a well deserved cuppa and a scone is the beautiful, Victorian former railway stop ‘The Station’ - They love a good natter, whilst people-watching over a coffee.
We’re one big family here at Wellburn Care Homes, and our residents are no different - Our Eighton Lodge home in Gateshead took the short trip to Wellburn House to see some familiar faces, and share an afternoon of singing and dancing together. Everyone enjoyed a boogie and a good ol’ catch-up, too.
Our Craghall home in Jesmond took the Wellburn bus for a day-trip to picturesque Keswick this week, stopping by the quirky Cumberland Pencil Museum before a delicious pub lunch on the way home.
Our Glenholme House residents took part in a local community project ‘Sunderland Stories’, where they shared some tales from their pasts, and brought them back to life through arts and crafts on the day - Everyone had a great time reminiscing and creating their very own artwork, too.
After an energetic day of singing & dancing, residents at our Rosevale home rounded off their day satisfying their sweet tooth, with a mix-up from the resident sweet trolley - We think the lemon sherberts went down as the firm favourite!
With all the sun and lovely weather this week, out residents have spent a lot of time soaking up rays in their lovely garden.

Betty, a resident in our Glenholme House care home, took part in our ‘Work Matters’ initiative this week, visiting the children at Busy Bees nursery. Betty used to be a teacher and loves reminiscing about her time in the classroom - She thoroughly enjoyed spending her morning with the children, who loved having Betty help out.
Soaking up the Summer sunshine, both our St George’s and Eighton Lodge care homes picked a wonderful day for their Summer BBQ’s. We had lots going on with our families and friends over the day, with some very tasty food, games & music - Including some very popular pony rides at St George’s. A big thank you to everyone who came along, and our hard-working staff for organising two wonderful days!
Our Garden House home in Berwick made the most of the Summer bank holiday with a trip up to the Eyemouth & St Abbs coastline in Scotland. We were even lucky enough to get up close to the marine-life, seeing a number of seals whilst out-and-about on our travels.
With the recent ever-changing August weather, our Glenholme residents decided it would be a great idea to soak up what little sun we’ve had so far with a stroll around Roker Park - taking in the sights and sounds of the wildlife on our doorstep and taking the time to talk to our lovely neighbours, too.
Residents at our Rosevale home spent the afternoon getting arty, crafting their very own peacocks with feathers from our very own resident bird, Jeremy.

Our brilliant team at our Craghall home loved helping Stewart to achieve his goal of a river cruise on the Tyne today. Stewart is originally from the North West of England so it was great to be able to introduce him to the Tyne! One of our other residents, Margaret, had a great time trying to teach him some Geordie dialect- a big challenge but an absolutely fantastic day!
Today we went along with Shirley, Dawn and some of our residents fromRyton Towers Care Home’s knitting club, to present a cheque and all of the beautiful, hand made baby clothes they have been busy making for RVI Tiny Lives (Special Care Babies).
