Welcome to Elizabeth Flemming Care Home
You'll find Elizabeth Flemming Care Home in Hetton-Le-Hole, Tyne and Wear.
Here we provide high quality care 24 hours a day. The people who live here have varying needs, from specialist nursing support to general assistance with everyday living.
We offer specialist residential and nursing care for those with dementia, respite care to give home carers a much needed break, and dedicated care for young people with physical disabilities. Some stay with us permanently, others for shorter periods.
Our modern purpose-built care home has a sensory garden, two flower gardens, and substantial grounds ideal for walking. We also have a patio area which is very popular in the summer.
The people who live here pursue their hobbies in communal and quiet lounges throughout the home. These areas are used for relaxing and socialising in, and are great places to invite friends and families to when they visit.
Life at Elizabeth Flemming Care Home
Our dedicated activities coordinator ensures each person living here enjoys a full and varied calendar.
Professional performers come in to entertain residents, and we organise trips to local places of interest including the library, park and the museum.
As supporters of the UK National Dementia Strategy we help ensure key life skills are maintained, building purpose and providing nurture for those with dementia. We organise group and individual activities, but in our experience it's the one-to-one sessions that people find most calming and rewarding.
Mealtimes are an enjoyable and sociable part of the day. Each warm and welcoming dining area has tables laid with fresh flowers and linen, and our menus are displayed to show the choices available. Snacks, fresh fruit and refreshments are provided 24 hours a day.
We have highly nutritious and varied menus, and cater for all dietary and cultural needs. All food is prepared using fresh ingredients every day in our kitchens. Depending on how they feel, each resident can choose to have their meals in their own room, or in our dining room. We encourage friends and family to join us for meals or afternoon tea any time.
The staff at Elizabeth Fleming provide excellent care for residents. There is a very friendly, welcoming and caring environment in which staff, however busy they are, always seem calm. It is a small home and staff are able to know residents well and are aware of their individual needs and preferences. Visitors and families are greeted in a friendly way and everything possible is done to support them. There is always access to the manager and nursing staff if families have issues they want to discuss. When a relative has to go into residential care it is a great comfort to know they are being looked after so well.
I find it just like living at home.
Elizabeth Fleming is fair.
My mother has been a resident in this home for over 7 years. I am completely satisfied with the 24 hour nursing care that she has received during that period. She has on many occasions been a difficult person to deal with both mentally and physically and the staff have coped admirably! My mother will be 103 in July 2015.
It's like a family.
I felt fine, it was good to talk about how I felt.
They are alright. They asked if I am happy and I am happy.
It went good- asked how I was feeling and if I was happy which I am.
The home has a good homely feel. The staff are caring, patient and treat each person as an individual, catering to all their needs, making them feel that it is their home. The meals are good with plenty of snacks in-between. The general feel is that of a big family. The staff are always happy and work together to create a happy family feel.
Good food especially on a Friday its alright here. I've been her for years. I like to look at the gardens.

Four Seasons Health Care were well represented at the finals of the British Journal of Nursing Awards earlier this month with four colleagues flying the flag for the organisation.
Gary Cousins was a runner up in the Infection Control and Prevention Nurse category, Colin Sheeran was a runner up in the Mental Health Nurse of the Year category and Joanne Strain was a runner up in the British Nurse of the Year category.
However, further plaudits need to be given to Alana Irvine who was crowned the Nutritional Nurse of the Year, after being nominated by colleagues for her continued commitment to residents’ nutrition.
Alana has been part of the driving force behind Four Seasons nutrition innovations to meet the varying needs of the people in our care. We are able to monitor residents’ nutritional needs, with technology that flags up weight loss, whether a resident has difficulty swallowing or needs assistance when eating or drinking to the care team.
Nutrition is something we take very seriously here at Four Seasons and Alana’s win recognises all of the hard work done across the board in this area.
