Welcome to Howdon Care Centre

Swan Lodge and Hunter Hall have joined together as Howdon Care Centre to provide a wide range of services, including specialised dementia care, residential care, short term and palliative care. This means that as people’s care needs change, the well-trained and experienced team will be able to continue to care for them without needing to find a new home.

As a modern, purpose-built home, our facilities are first-rate. Inside, each floor has light, airy lounges and dining rooms and all our bedrooms are en-suite Outside, our landscaped grounds with a sensory garden, are the perfect place to enjoy the fresh air during the warmer months.

At Howdon we put the health and happiness of our residents at the heart of everything we do. Our residents’ needs matter and we go the extra mile to ensure they are met. What is more, we boast a hairdressing salon, a great activities programme and our dementia café gives families and friends a lovely place to spend together.

We can be found among the residential streets of Wallsend, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, which is between Newcastle city centre and North Shields. The shops are close by and it’s easy to get around on public transport.
