Care home admissions during the Covid-19 pandemic

Safe admissions into our care homes includes the option for new residents to self-isolate in the comfort of their own home for 11 days, before joining us in the care home where they will be tested for Covid-19 and supported to self-isolate for 3 more days until the result of the test is known.

Set in an attractive spot of Nunthorpe village, you will often see pheasants wandering through the residential care home’s magnificent gardens.

The extensive gardens are a real focal point of the home, not just for our residents but for an abundance of wildlife, including the local rabbits and squirrels! With pergolas bursting with colour and even a rhubarb patch, our residents love to sit outside and admire the views. The home’s garden room opens out onto the wheelchair friendly patio that surrounds the area.

In the summer months, we often hold social gatherings on the lawns with Buck’s Fizz, barbecues and some very competitive games of bowls. The home is also a short walk from Nunthorpe Bowling Club, where our residents enjoy watching matches.

There is so much in the area for our residents to do. The care home has its own minibus, so we take residents to places like the seafront at Whitby, where they love to eat fish and chips while taking in the sea breeze. Dorman Museum in Middlesbrough is another popular place they like to visit.

Much closer to home is Nunthorpe Oaks Inn, which has been specially created by transforming one of our lounge areas. With a traditional bar, residents can enjoy a drink while playing games and socialising with not only each other but their visitors too.

One big extended family

The families of our residents are as much a part of Nunthorpe Oaks as our staff and residents. Some of the loved ones of residents who are sadly no longer with us still visit regularly because the home and the people here have such a special place in their hearts. One lady comes in every week to run our quiz, while another comes in for sing-alongs, accompanying us on the piano. We have one gentleman who joins us twice a week for dominoes and crossword challenges.

By far the most popular visitors to the care home are youngsters from a local nursery in Middlesbrough, who join us every single week, come rain or shine. Their laughter fills the rooms as they spend time with the residents, creating works of art using playdough or playing musical statues. They will often show our residents new moves during a mini disco and also join us when we welcome creatures and critters from ZooLab along for animal handling workshops.

Other visitors our residents love to spend time with students from our local high school, Nunthorpe Academy. They are currently doing their Duke of Edinburgh’s Awards. At the moment they visit at tea time and take our residents’ orders at the table, waiting on them as though they were in a restaurant which is lovely to see.

We also have regular volunteers and work experience students from the Middlesbrough community who join us. Whether simply popping in for a chat with our residents over a cup of tea or accompanying us on walks, our residents love to welcome new faces into their care home.
