Pavillion Residential and Nursing Home in DurhamNorth View Terrace, Colliery Row, Houghton le Spring, County Durham, DH4 5NW
Awarded a ‘Gold Standard’ by Sunderland City Council, the home has received the highest rating for care services in the area. Our Pavillion Residential and Nursing Home is a forever home, providing a wide range of person-centred care. From residential to dementia care, nursing and palliative care, residents and their loved ones have the peace of mind that the experienced team will continue to care for them as needs evolve over time.
The home is located a short drive from the beautiful Durham Wildlife Trust’s Rainton Meadows, which our residents love to visit for a stroll, followed by a cup of tea and cake in the café.
The Pavillion has large enclosed gardens, which are currently being landscaped. With a conservatory leading out onto a separate courtyard area, the residents love to take part in activities outside. Over the coming months, the gardens are set to be transformed with new seating areas, sensory planting and more.
So much to do
Activities our residents often like to take part in include Singing for the Brain sessions, which are run by the Alzheimer’s Society and are so beneficial for our residents living with dementia.
We often take our gents to visit a local social club, where they enjoy a pint while chatting and playing dominoes and other games. Members of the team also take some of the residents to church services in and around Houghton-le-Spring. Every Friday morning members of the local church also carry out a special service just for our residents in the heart of our residential and nursing home.
Our residents also like to visit the Galleries Shopping Centre in Washington, as well as The Bridges Shopping Centre in Sunderland, which is a short drive away in our home’s own minibus.
Something we are just about to take part in is an activity which enables residents in wheelchairs to dip their toes into the sea thanks to special new equipment. We will shortly be trying this at our local beach in Seaburn so watch this space!
