Brandon Lodge Care Home in Brandon
A warm welcome to Brandon Lodge Care Home in County Durham
You’ll find Brandon Lodge Care Home in a quiet residential area, just a short drive from Durham city. We are in easy reach of local shops and public transport, making us easily accessible for visitors to pop-in for a chat.
One of the leading care homes in Durham, our Care team offers residential care for people who need a little help with daily tasks, and nursing care for those with complex medical needs. We also provide respite care to give family or friends a well-earned break, and intermediate care as an alternative to a hospital stay.
We have regular visits from our local police dog, Jet, for pet therapy interaction. Pet therapy has been found to greatly benefit our residents, who love to cuddle and stroke Jet. Our home also has a lovely outside garden area, which our residents love to explore and relax in. They particularly like to sit in the shaded outdoor area and enjoy an ice cream.
Your safety is our priority
Although staying safe is always a priority, we have adapted and added new measures to ensure the wellbeing of all residents during these times.Find out how we're keeping your loved ones safe

Palliative and End of Life Care
This is specialist support for people with a life-limiting illness to relieve their symptoms and make them as comfortable as possible. We understand that this can be a sensitive time and teams offer compassionate support, providing advice or an opportunity to talk. Learn More
After a stay in hospital, people who are over the worst can still need a certain amount of care to help with rehabilitation so they can return home with confidence. Our intermediate care beds play a vital role in supporting local health and social care services by offering older people an alternative to an extended stay on a ward. Learn More
