Rushyfields Residential and Nursing Home in DurhamBrandon Lane, Brandon, County Durham, DH7 8SH
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.
Three miles outside of Durham, our care home is situated in the heart of Brandon – a beautiful small rural village.
We are in close proximity to all the shops, churches and community centre Brandon has to offer. While still being able to see the top of Durham’s cathedral from our care home windows.
Along with our beautiful spot, we also provide a wide range of care home provisions. Our dedicated team deliver residential care, nursing care, dementia care, palliative care and respite care with true devotion and compassion.
We are more than just a care home in County Durham, we are a forever home. Our care and support evolve as and when it needs to. Providing residents and their loved ones with peace of mind that the upheaval of moving into a care home only has to happen once.
Living life to the full in our care home
We were praised in our most recent CQC care home report for the activities and the lifestyle we promote for our residents. Inspectors quoted: “People were actively engaged in a range of activities and had opportunities to access the wider community”.
This is so important to us. We strongly believe that our residents should spend their time as they choose. We empower them to remain active members of their Brandon community while reigniting hobbies and pastimes they’ve always adored.
That’s why no two days are the same in Rushyfields. You can find us taking part in exercise sessions one day, to arts and crafts the next.
We even have a range of entertainers from across Country Durham performing right in the heart of our care home. Our residents’ social lives have never been so jam-packed, which is a real highlight for those living in our residential care suites and those living with dementia.
For our residents who are receiving nursing care, we do also provide more intimate one-to-one activities. From pampering sessions in the comfort of our very own hairdressing salon to Namaste hand massages.
And during the warmer weather our team take residents on summer trips out, to places like local garden centres and the beach at South Shields.
