Brockwell Court Care Home in Consett
A Warm Welcome to Brockwell Court Care Home, Consett
"I have stayed here for respite over two months; I can not fault the home. I have enjoyed my stay, and all staff from carers, cleaners, laundry and activities have been excellent. The room is great and very clean, the food has been excellent, there is nothing negative I can possibly say."
You’ll find Brockwell Court Care Home right in the heart of Consett, near to the bus station and with it’s own private car park, making it convenient to visit loved ones.
Our Care team offers residential care for those who need help with daily tasks, as well as residential dementia care where we support our residents to maintain their independence and individuality, encouraging social activity and building relationships within the home. We also provide nursing care for people with complex medical needs.
At Brockwell Court we put the residents at the centre of our focus and encourage them to get involved with every part of their care.
We enjoy regular visits from children at the neighbouring nursery and school and share events in our landscaped gardens with them. We hold regular activities within our home, benefiting from a large conservatory space in which most are held, as well as organising outings in our mini bus for residents to enjoy.

Why did you decide to join Four Seasons Health Care?
The company has support for all staff across various departments, meaning there is always someone to ask if I need further advice on a matter.
What do you enjoy most about your job?
I enjoy my role as I get to see the residents every day and how they are supported. We offer a range of care here at Brockwell Court and seeing someone getting back onto their feet after a fall for example, is a credit to the staff team and the rehab support they can provide. No two days are the same in my role; I enjoy the challenge and am constantly learning new skills as a result.
What are your favourite hobbies and pastimes?
Aside from working and having two small children, most of my time is spent taking photos, reading, and trying to visit every National Trust park in the country as my children try to find the biggest slide they can!
Are there any highlights in your career you are particularly proud of?
I have been lucky enough to be part of a fantastic team here at Brockwell Court and we have taken the home from being "Requires Improvement" to "Good" with CQC. I was also nominated for the "HM of the Year" award within the company, and was lucky enough to support one of our residents to attend an awards show in Birmingham last year, after she was nominated for "Resident of the Year" too.
What do you feel is your biggest achievement outside of your career?
Having survived 2 babies 15 months apart! They’re now 3 and 5 and the best of friends.
What are your Qualifications?
These include a nursing degree, and Level 5 award in Leadership & Management.
What top tips would you give someone when looking for the right care home?
Know that this is one of the hardest decisions you'll have to make - there's a certain amount of guilt associated with choosing a care home for a loved one and we can support you through this time. Trust your instincts; a good care home will welcome you to visit and look around as often as you like whilst making this decision and support you with the process.
