Welcome to Elizabeth Fleming Care Home
You'll find Elizabeth Fleming Care Home in Hetton-Le-Hole, Tyne and Wear.
Here we provide high quality care 24 hours a day. The people who live here have varying needs, from specialist nursing support to general assistance with everyday living.
We offer specialist residential and nursing care for those with dementia, respite care to give home carers a much needed break, and dedicated care for young people with physical disabilities. Some stay with us permanently, others for shorter periods.
Our modern purpose-built care home has a sensory garden, two flower gardens, and substantial grounds ideal for walking. We also have a patio area which is very popular in the summer.
The people who live here pursue their hobbies in communal and quiet lounges throughout the home. These areas are used for relaxing and socialising in, and are great places to invite friends and families to when they visit.
Life at Elizabeth Fleming Care Home
Our dedicated activities coordinator ensures each person living here enjoys a full and varied calendar.
Professional performers come in to entertain residents, and we organise trips to local places of interest including the library, park and the museum.
As supporters of the UK National Dementia Strategy we help ensure key life skills are maintained, building purpose and providing nurture for those with dementia. We organise group and individual activities, but in our experience it's the one-to-one sessions that people find most calming and rewarding.
Mealtimes are an enjoyable and sociable part of the day. Each warm and welcoming dining area has tables laid with fresh flowers and linen, and our menus are displayed to show the choices available. Snacks, fresh fruit and refreshments are provided 24 hours a day.
We have highly nutritious and varied menus, and cater for all dietary and cultural needs. All food is prepared using fresh ingredients every day in our kitchens. Depending on how they feel, each resident can choose to have their meals in their own room, or in our dining room. We encourage friends and family to join us for meals or afternoon tea any time.
The staff at Elizabeth Fleming provide excellent care for residents. There is a very friendly, welcoming and caring environment in which staff, however busy they are, always seem calm. It is a small home and staff are able to know residents well and are aware of their individual needs and preferences. Visitors and families are greeted in a friendly way and everything possible is done to support them. There is always access to the manager and nursing staff if families have issues they want to discuss. When a relative has to go into residential care it is a great comfort to know they are being looked after so well.
I find it just like living at home.
Elizabeth Fleming is fair.
My mother has been a resident in this home for over 7 years. I am completely satisfied with the 24 hour nursing care that she has received during that period. She has on many occasions been a difficult person to deal with both mentally and physically and the staff have coped admirably! My mother will be 103 in July 2015.
It's like a family.
I felt fine, it was good to talk about how I felt.
They are alright. They asked if I am happy and I am happy.
It went good- asked how I was feeling and if I was happy which I am.
The home has a good homely feel. The staff are caring, patient and treat each person as an individual, catering to all their needs, making them feel that it is their home. The meals are good with plenty of snacks in-between. The general feel is that of a big family. The staff are always happy and work together to create a happy family feel.
Good food especially on a Friday its alright here. I've been her for years. I like to look at the gardens.

People embark on a career path because it’s something they love, they yearn to develop, grow and blossom in their profession.
Here at Four Seasons Health Care, Care Assistants can up-skill themselves on the organisations Care Home Assistant Practitioner (CHAP) Programme.
On Thursday 20th December 2017, a graduation ceremony was held at Shawcross Social Club in Wigan, celebrating the achievements of 47 newly qualified CHAPs.
Rachael Junge, Managing Director for Four Seasons in the North West of England, said: “Here at Four Seasons Health Care we take great pride in our CHAP Programme, and everyone who undertakes the intense 12 week course. I want to congratulate all of the CHAPs for graduating; your hard work and dedication have paid off. These are the first CHAPs in my area, and I’m absolutely delighted at all of your achievements.
“The Programme is innovative and helps the CHAPs to provide invaluable support to the nurses in the homes.
“All the CHAPs have come through this long journey and I want to thank you for your commitment. I also want to thank the Nurse mentors who have guided and supported the CHAPs every step of the way. Well done everyone!”
The newly qualified CHAPs are now able to provide some general nursing duties such as medication rounds. This benefits the home as it enables the nurse to deal with more complex issues.

The care team at Elizabeth Fleming Care Home in Hetton-le-Hole turned into Fairy Godmothers as they granted residents' wishes as part of World Wish Day.
Lorraine Woods, Home Manager, explained: "We granted each of our residents a wish. They varied from a pamper session, favourite sweets and drinks, CD, DVD to visiting your old home/the place you once lived, visiting a loved one, sending a loved one a card, a scrap book of memories, breakfast in bed and many more. We even managed to grant our resident Alan his wish whilst in hospital.
"It was such a lovely day especially for the person granting the wishes"
