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.

As delayed transfers of care remain at record highs, how can we reduce unnecessary hospital stays for older people? That was the key question at an HSJ event held in association with Four Seasons Health Care.
The roundtable heard that the healthcare system often finds reasons not to deal with care home residents and looked at the success of an innovative collaboration between the NHS and care homes in Belfast.
With a collaborative approach between care homes and the NHS, older people are able to leave hospital and receive expert care, whilst assessing whether their long term future would be in their current home or a local care home. “The idea is that it would provide short term rehabilitation in conjunction with the two trusts in that area. The joint partnerships with the trusts I’ve worked with have just been amazing, and that’s what makes it work”, explained Janice Brown, Four Seasons’ regional manager for the Belfast and Newtownabbey area.
In addition to the improvements from a collaborative solution, South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust reported that the joint partnership approach of providing a bed in a care home reduced their yearly cost by more than half.

Residents and the care team at Elizabeth Fleming Care Home in Hetton-le-Hole had lots of fun raising money for Comic Relief last week.
Lorraine Woods, Home Manager, explained: “We had lots of fun with red noses and deely boppers. Then at 3pm on the dot everyone joined in with a huge sing along singing Sing by The Carpenters. There were some fantastic voices, so much so, we’re considering entering into Britain’s Got Talent. A great day was had by all and we managed to raise some money for a worthy cause.”

Earlier in December, Margaret Bell, a resident at Elizabeth Fleming Care Home in Hetton-le-Hole was awarded the first Four Seasons Health Care Resident Contribution of the Year award.
Unfortunately, Margaret was unable to attend the awards evening, so instead the home brought a little glitz and glamour to her.
Lorraine Woods, Home Manager, said: “The Mayor of Hetton visited Margaret at the home, congratulating her on her achievement and awarding her with a beautiful bouquet of flowers.
“Well done Margaret, we’re all very proud of you. You are very deserving of this award.”
