Welcome to Hallgarth Care Home

You'll find Hallgarth Care Home set in a quiet residential area, close to the heart of the beautiful, historic and bustling city of Durham.

Here our highly trained team provides specialist end-of-life care at a time when residents and their families need extra help and support; and also short-term respite care. We work hard to ensure everyone living here is comfortable and well looked after.

Ours is a purpose-built care home. Catering for every personality and lifestyle, we offer several communal areas and lounges, plus places where residents can pursue their hobbies or relax. We also have our own spacious bar, which is a great place to socialise or invite friends and family to when they visit.

Just as you you'd expect in a hotel, all our various bedrooms are warm, bright and comfortable. We have standard rooms, plus five large ‘cathedral suites' with en-suite wet rooms, elegant decor, flat-screen TVs, and patio doors leading out on to our garden.

We love residents to bring their own furniture and possessions to give their rooms a homely feel.

We pride ourselves on being an established and essential part of the local community. Our strong relationship with the church and other social groups is a great comfort and pleasure to many who stay with us.

Life at Hallgarth Care Home

A carer and a resident

This is an excellent care home. Residents needs are paramount. Everyone especially the most frail and vulnerable are treated with respect, kindness and gentleness. They are also given a rich, stimulating and interesting environment to live in.

Ruth McArec, Volunteer at Hallgarth Care Home

The beds are excellent, the food is very good but it is not cooked how I would cook it! The people and staff are really nice here, the rooms are nice and there is a warm and friendly atmosphere.

Monica Langman, Resident / Service User at Hallgarth Care Home

I meet with the residents and their family and friends fortnightly, known as poetry pat. Poetry is used to evoke memories and encourage "talk", gain the social life facilitator is the mainstay of this group, encouraging the residents to participate and enjoy these sessions through her sense of humour and the sheer enjoyment which she radiates from her. She really loves her work from the art she does to trips to the seaside, to shows, special celebrations and so much more. Hallgarth is so lucky to haver her!

9-CHAPS-Graduate-Northern-Ireland-2017

20 Sep 2017

Here at Four Seasons we value all of our team members. We encourage and support them to complete courses to help them develop their skills, enabling them to further enhance their career.

One such way for Care Assistants to do this, is for them to complete the Care Home Assistant Practitioners (CHAPs) 12 week training programme. Whilst completing this course, the Care Assistants can learn how to support nurses with certain duties potentially freeing the nurse to deal with a more complex issue.

Nine of our Care Assistant in Northern Ireland enrolled onto this programme, and on Monday 4th September they successfully graduated as Care Home Assistant Practitioners.

Carol Cousins, Managing Director for Northern Ireland said: “The graduation of the 9 Care Home Assistant Practitioners in Northern Ireland is a hugely significant achievement as these special pioneers are the very first in such a role across the Care Home sector here.

"Having Mary Hinds the Director of Nursing from the Public Health Agency and HSC in NI along to present the awards has reinforced the positive impact that CHAPs have in delivering the best experience of care for our residents."

More information about our CHAPs Programme is available in our careers section.

Hallgarth-Care-Home-Durham-Botanical-Gardens-Sept-2017

16 Sep 2017

Head gardener Mike and Pam from the Durham Botanical Gardens gave residents from Hallgarth Care Home a guided tour, full of inside information, facts, history and answering a lot of questions.

Angela Muir, Home Manager, said: “Beryl was so surprised when she stepped onto a viewing platform to see the height of the plants closely related to rhubarb; they were over 6 feet tall! She used to eat it raw as a child straight out of the ground. She said it would take her a long time now to eat a six foot rhubarb stick with her false teeth!

“Sheila was delighted and got such a surprise when Mike said that when the leave had turned brown off a particular tree and started to fall, if you crumbled them in your hand and smelled them, they smelt of toffee. Sheila was also interested in the slice of a bee hive, we watched the bees dancing in a figure eight. She found it fascinating watching them all coming and going and learning the bee systems and how a hive works.”
