We care for up to fifty people, in a highly professional, compassionate and welcoming environment that caters for all the needs of our residents. What’s more, we treat them with respect, and we know how important it is for them to retain their dignity. We also recognise that they each have individual needs. We work hard to keep our standards high, but we also try to create an informal atmosphere, where we can all relax and enjoy a laugh. That’s important for our residents, and for us!
We provide long term care, as well as day and respite care for local residents. Our nursing staff are trained in specialist cancer, stroke and dementia care.
A critical factor in enabling us to maintain a consistently high quality of care is our minimal staff turnover. We have a highly professional working environment, but at the same time it is relaxed, friendly and supportive of our staff, so we’re not really surprised that people enjoy working here, and don’t feel the need to move on.
We do all we can to keep residents mentally and physically active. To this end, we arrange regular excursions, and we encourage residents who have particular hobbies or interests to continue with them.
Red Brick House Care Home is situated in the village of Prudhoe, about 10 miles west of Newcastle and close to the picturesque Northumberland countryside.
Red Brick House
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.
