Making care special is at the heart of Barrington Lodge Care Home in Bishop Auckland. Our philosophy starts with getting to know each person as an individual and understanding what they need, so we can provide the right kind of care to match. It's simple: the more we know, the better we care.

Our aim is to help people stay as well as they can for as long as they can.

"The staff at Barrington Lodge are excellent they are caring and adapt to each clients needs. My mother is currently in respite and came out of hospital bed bound. She was encouraged to regain her independence within a safe environment and can now walk short distances and can do basic tasks. Even though she has dementia she loves the staff and feels safe.

Even though she may be moving to day care I would not hesitate to recommend this home to anyone having to face the difficult decision of where to place a loved one. Should I have to place my mother anywhere permanently in the future I will come back to Barrington. The home manager and her assistant are both extremely helpful. First Class care."
