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!

Easter

12 Apr 2017

The craft and chat club at Hallgarth Care Home in Durham have continued their Easter preparations by making Easter bonnets and boaters in preparation for their annual competition.

Angela Muir, Home Manager, said: “Everyone got stuck in creating their own bonnets and boaters in a variety of different colours with lots of different accessories stuck to them. There were decorations a plenty to choose from.

I had to judge the competition, which was really tough as everyone had worked so hard making them. I eventually crowned Nancy our bonnet champion, for her use of colour and style.

Easter

9 Apr 2017

Residents, relatives and the care team at Hallgarth Care Home in Durham have all been busy preparing for Easter.

They’ve set up their Easter stall, complete with felt rabbits, chicks with eggs, origami bunnies with chocolates, knitted chicks, book marks, jotter books, cards and bags – all which they’ve been preparing since January! All of the proceeds of their hard work will go towards providing special experiences for residents. If you fancy your luck, you could see if you have the winning touch on the Easter raffle. It could be you who wins.

Everyone will be continuing their preparations this week, as they put up their Easter tree – which has grown up from a twig to a colour changing tree! The home will welcome Reverend Peter and Minister Jane to conduct the Easter service, after welcoming the Easter bunny who hopefully won’t be chased away by the Pet Therapy dog Mapache!

Angela Muir, Home Manager, said: “We’ve got lots of things going on for the Easter period for the residents and their relatives to enjoy. We welcome everyone to come in and enjoy the fun here at Hallgarth. The more the merrier.”
