The Wheatfield team work very hard to accommodate the needs of all the residents. For those who have a strong sense of independence, the Home has good access to local amenities and transport links. At the same time, there are many activities to enjoy in-house. Whatever their preferences, we encourage all residents to remain physically and mentally active, to the best of their ability.
We have a wide range of residents, with varying capabilities and needs, and for those with more complex needs we provide nursing packages that are maintained by an advanced Care Team, with respite and palliative services also available.
We are very proud of the service we offer at Wheatfield. Our dedicated staff adopt a whole-team approach and a family-orientated attitude in delivering a caring and compassionate service. There is a strong bond between the residents and staff, many of whom have been with us a very long time. We work hard to create respectful relationships with families, visitors and professionals.
The residents also get involved in the running of the Home. Sometimes they join the Manager on job interview panels. We have a Westerleigh newsletter, and residents help with the post, do gardening, and also help with activities.
We also encourage links with the community, and we have groups come in from local schools, colleges and churches.
Wheatfield Court Care Home is situated in pleasant surroundings in the Westerhope area of Newcastle, within easy reach of the Durham Heritage Coast to the north, and the North Yorkshire coast to the south.

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.
