At Prince’s Court we make every effort to ensure that all our visitors receive a very warm, homely and welcoming greeting when they arrive. We have a wide range of visitors, from people looking for a Care Home for a loved one through to Health and Social Service professionals, and we make sure that they all receive a professional, but at the same time warm and friendly service.
Our staff are hard working, very professional, committed and caring, and they interact extremely well with residents and their families. Above all, they take pride in their work.
We try to foster close and meaningful relationships with the families and friends of residents, encouraging them to visit and get involved in activities as much as possible.
We think it is important for staff to get to know as much as possible about our residents: their individual needs, their likes and dislikes – to really know and understand them on a personal basis.
Residents and relatives are encouraged to get involved in the running of the home. To this end, we hold resident meetings, where we discuss what’s happening in the Home and try to get them to be part of the decision-making process.
One of our priorities is to keep the residents physically and mentally stimulated, and to enrich their lives as much as we can. We try to give them the best quality of life that we can, depending on their abilities. This can involve simple things such as chatting with them, or doing person-centred activities, such as dancing. We also try to get them to laugh – we have a great sense of humour here in the northeast, so we’re good at that!
Prince’s Court Care Home is situated in North Shields, a short drive from Newcastle and close to the Royal Quays Marina, where cruise liners come and go. There is also a large retail park close by.

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.
