We pride ourselves on being a warm and welcoming sort of establishment, as you’d expect in the north east! Visitors are greeted by staff in a pleasant and polite manner, and always offered refreshments.
Most our residents grew up in this area, as did our staff, and that gives us a huge advantage, both when residents first arrive and as we try to build close relationships with them. When you’re gaining people’s trust it’s that much easier if you can talk about people and places that you both know.
We have lovely gardens here at Pavilion Court. We have verandas on the first floor and two large lounges, so there’s plenty of opportunity for residents and staff to relax and have a natter. And when the residents are not doing that, we have a wide range of activities, such as a gardening club, baking, quizzes and knit n natter. We have mini ponies come in, and we also have a strong link with a cat and dog shelter, which regularly brings pets in. One of our residents is a handyman, so he’s sanding down and painting some chairs, and loving every minute!
We have a thriving residents’ forum, which relatives also get involved with.
We like to keep residents in touch with the local community, and several of them regularly go out to shop, have a coffee, or go to the community centre. We also have a lot of visits from school and church groups.
Pavilion Court Care Home is situated in Cowgate, a pleasant suburb of Newcastle. It has shops and other facilities close by, and good public transport links.

Akari Care is a family of Residential Care Homes spread across the UK, with the largest concentration of homes in the north-east. We choose the word ‘family’ with good reason, because in many ways it epitomises our values. Each Care Home we view as an extended family, bringing together residents and their families, our colleagues in care, clinicians, hairdressers, commissioners and CQC regulators, members of the local community – the list goes on. In this way, we are able to create a warm and inclusive environment in which our residents can feel a real sense of security and belonging, while at the same time retaining their dignity and self-respect.
We never compromise on the quality of our services, nor would you expect us to. Our extended team includes trusted GPs, Dentists, Chiropodists and Dieticians, who all work hard to improve our residents’ quality of life. Our dementia Care Homes have qualified, dedicated staff who help people to maintain their identity and dignity. With a focus on living life to the fullest, our homes offer activities such as hairdressing salons, bars, cinemas, gardening, and cooking courses to name just a few!
We have a dedicated and caring staff, a homely and friendly atmosphere, and high standards of cleanliness and care.
The central focus of everything we do is the wellbeing of our residents, to ensure that they remain physically and mentally active, are fulfilled and happy, and feel cared for and, loved as part of the Bridge View family.
