Welcome to Howdon Care Centre

Howdon Care Centre provides 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.

18 Nov 2015

Throughout October Four Season’s Health Care have been celebrating Older People’s Day, an event which recognises the achievements and contributions that older people make to our society.

As well as a variety of events and celebrations across the county, we have been talking to and filming residents, their families and our staff to hear their ‘words of wisdom’.

Many residents at our homes talked to us about what they have learnt during their lives, and any advice they have to share. We also talked to their families and the team here at Four Seasons about what they have learnt from residents and the older people in their lives.

From lessons on enjoying life and focusing on your family, to some slightly cheekier messages, it has been fantastic to hear from people at our homes across the country. To hear some of the words of wisdom click on the video below.

Howdon Care Centre in Wallsend recently launched their newly developed sensory garden. The garden has been redesigned in order to enhance the specialised dementia care available at Howdon in line with their PEARL accreditation. The team arranged a BBQ to celebrate the opening of the garden and invited relatives and all involved in the creation of the garden.

To make the most of the autumn sunshine, the team thought it would be a great idea to host a BBQ to mark the occasion. A number of local personalities were invited to attend – all of which had some involvement in the creation of the garden. Gary Bell, Chairman of North Tyneside Council, was chosen to open the garden alongside former Chairman, Councillor Tommy Mulvenna who played a huge part in fundraising for the garden. The garden was blessed by local Reverend Emma Duff.

Ruth Todd, Home Manager, told us “The garden will provide areas for all our residents and relatives to enjoy – it is part our of development programme of specialised dementia care. I would like to thank all who attending the opening and all those involved in the creation. I’m overwhelmed by all the time, love and effort that has gone into the project”.

Howdon Care Centre in Wallsend recently received a generous donation from North Tyneside Council. They were chosen in 2014 as one of the main charities to focus their fundraising on by Tommy Mulvenna, Chairman of North Tyneside Council, when he stepped into the role.

Through dedication from the team at Howdon, residents, Councillor Mulvenna and other council members, Howdon was presented with £1300 in donations from various fundraising activities throughout the year. The money will be put towards giving the garden a makeover for the residents to enjoy. It will also help Howdon with our PEARL (Positively Enriching and Enhancing Residents' Lives) accreditation – this is a specialised dementia service recognised by Four Seasons Health Care.

Councillor Mulvenna has since said, “I would like to give a special thanks to the team at North Tyneside Council for their generosity and support through all the fundraising events. The organisations I picked support such fantastic causes and the money we are donating will help to continue the excellent work they do”.

The activities team at Howdon were able to collect the cheque on behalf of the home alongside the Relative’s Support Group Chair Lady.

Ruth Todd, Home Manager, told us “It was such an honour for Howdon Care Centre to be chosen as one of the charities. The money has helped improve all aspects of the home and in turn improve the experience residents gain from us. I can’t thank Councillor Mulvenna and North Tyneside Council enough for their generous support”.
