Nunthorpe Oaks Residential Care Home in Middlesbrough114 Guisborough Road, Nunthorpe, Middlesbrough, North Yorkshire, TS7 0JA
Providing residential care, our home is at the heart of the community in Nunthorpe.
As well as residential care, we support people needing a carer’s break, with long and short stay respite care options. Family and friends often say how Nunthorpe Oaks feels like a home from home. Our team members are devoted to enhancing our residents’ well-being, with a high standard of care and excellent opportunities for social interaction.
Safe admissions into our care homes includes the option for new residents to self-isolate in their own home before joining us.
Our virtual tours enable you to find out more about life in our care home and ask any questions you may have to a senior member of our team.
What are the gardens like?
A real focal point of the service, our secure gardens are stunning and include seating areas, pergolas bursting with colour and a vegetable plot. They are surrounded by wheelchair friendly pathways which are ideal for our more frail residents, and are the perfect spot for visiting relatives to spend time with their loved ones during ‘normal times’. The garden room opens out onto the courtyard, which is wonderful during the warmer weather.
In the summer months, we often hold social gatherings with families and friends on the lawns with Buck’s Fizz, barbecues and garden games. We also have an outdoor ‘visitors’ pod’ in the garden for when family members visit.
What is the food like?
In our kitchen Joan and John prepare delicious, home-cooked food. From fish and chip Fridays to their superb Sunday roast, as well as freshly baked cakes, mealtimes are a real highlight. Our residents also love their fresh fruit smoothies.
Coming soon – our service revamp
Sanctuary Care is investing a lot of money into refurbishing our scheme, in the outer suburbs of Middlesbrough. One floor at a time, our bedrooms are being transformed, with new furnishings and en-suite bathrooms. Our lounges and hair salon are having a revamp and we will also have a brand new bistro café.
Activities to enhance well-being
In our ‘Nunthorpe Oaks Inn’ there is a traditional bar, games, a jukebox and reading corner - the perfect spot for social interaction. We also organise lots of individual and small group activities, like our knitting club, music sessions, bingo and light exercise classes. Not forgetting pamper sessions in the hairdressing salon. The home is also a short walk from Nunthorpe Bowling Club.
During ‘normal times' our residents love watching matches, as well as enjoying visits from youngsters from the local nursery in Middlesbrough, who love spending time with their seniors. Other visitors include students from our local high school, Nunthorpe Academy. During mealtimes they would take our residents’ orders at the table, waiting on them as though they were in a restaurant. We are also able to use our neighbouring scheme’s minibus for outings into the village and wider community in Cleveland and Redcar. Dorman Museum in Middlesbrough is another popular place to visit, as well as the church in Nunthorpe.
It is usual for residents in care homes to contribute to the cost of their own care. Some people have the resources to pay for their care in full, whilst others make means-tested contributions. Our weekly fees are individual to each of our residents and are subject to a pre-admission assessment, which is required to truly understand the level of care and support needed.
Our 2021 weekly care fees for residential care start from £838, but may be in the region of 20% more*, dependent on your care needs and the type of bedroom that is right for you, from our standard rooms through to our premium bedroom options.
*If you require more specialist care such as 1-2-1 support your weekly fee could be higher.
A local respite service
Our home provides flexible respite breaks, both short stays and longer breaks for older people. With tailored packages, we can support people in need of a short break from caring for a family member. If you are a partner in your senior years, or a son or daughter; carers often need a little respite themselves. These breaks are also the perfect way to trial the home if you are considering care options, whether privately or publicly funded, making that transition feel more natural.
Nunthorpe Oaks is a residential care home, providing personal care to older people requiring assistance with day to day tasks. We also provide additional support to some of our residents who have Alzheimer’s as well as age-related memory loss and other forms of dementia. We work closely with the district nursing team in Middlesbrough who support our residents who have conditions such as cancer, motor neurone disease (MND), Parkinson’s, has suffered a stroke or have multiple sclerosis (MS). This enables us to provide care and support for people with a wide range of conditions.
