Don't know what type of care you need? Let us help.

Below are some descriptions of care terms you may have heard. Please have a read, then feel free to contact the care home manager Gail Starling here at Warrior Park Care Home in Hartlepool, to chat through the specific options we have available.

Residential care

This is for those who may need some help with daily activities such as eating, washing, dressing and getting around, or for those who need a more supportive environment if they're more frail.

Nursing care

Someone may need nursing care if they have a certain physical condition or difficulties. This might include those with long-term conditions, those who need rehabilitation, or those with physical disabilities.

Dementia care

People living with dementia have different needs, so either a residential or nursing care home may be best, depending on each individual. Our experienced teams understand the challenges of living with dementia and are trained to look beyond the dementia diagnosis and to see the person, understand them, and help them live their lives as closely as possible to the way they always have.

Respite care

Respite care, or short-stay care, means someone can stay at Warrior Park Care Home whether they need residential, nursing or dementia care - for shorter periods of time: days or weeks rather than months. Respite care is also suitable for those recovering from illness or a hospital stay.

Specialist care

Warrior Park Care Home also offers specialist help for adults and young people with different needs, including:

  • Physical disabilities

"My great aunt has been resident at Warrior Park for approx a year. She died a few weeks ago as she had diabetes and myeloma. The care at Warrior Park was very good. My great aunt had complex nursing needs and was demanding but despite this she was well cared for and happy."
