At Wellburn House we pride ourselves on the caring and empathetic attitude of our staff, which enables us to build up close relationships with residents, their families, carers and friends.
Although we can accommodate up to 90 people, our focus is very much on treating all our residents as individuals and affording them the respect and dignity they deserve. We believe in empowering them as much as possible, encouraging them to remain active mentally and physically. We also specialise in Dementia Residential care.
At Wellburn House, as members of the team, we see ourselves as part of an extended family, which brings together residents, families, visitors, healthcare professionals, and many groups and organisations in the local community. We recently instigated a residents and relatives newsletter, which is a great way of keeping everyone in touch with what’s happening, and also helps to cement that feeling of us all being part of the Wellburn family.
Wallace House Care Home is situated in Dunston, Gateshead. It’s located just a short walk from the local shops, served well by public transport services and is close to the Metro Centre.
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.
