Awarded a ‘Gold Standard’ by Sunderland City Council, the highest rating for care homes in the area, Pavillion Residential and Nursing Home is a forever home, providing a wide range of 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 Galleries Shopping Centre in Washington, as well as The Bridges Shopping Centre in Sunderland, which are a short drive away in our residential and nursing home’s 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!
And don’t just take our word for it….
“The care was exceptional. I could not single out one member of staff above another.
Everyone was a star. Mom was cared for with love, respect and dignity at all times, which made leaving her in your care so much easier.”
Carehome.co.uk review from the daughter of a resident - May 2019
“I can honestly say that my decision to place my wife into this establishment was the best decision I have made. The way the staff treat my wife and keep the building is second to none. With my wife being in this establishment, I am assured and sleep easier knowing that she is safe and being looked after by the best staff possible.”
