Welcome to Northlea Court Care Home
You'll find Northlea Court to the west of Cramlington, Tyne and Wear.
Here our team of registered nurses and dedicated, well-trained care assistants provides excellent care around the clock. We offer respite care, residential care, and nursing care to suit a range of needs.
Ours is a purpose-built two-storey home set in its own grounds with a car park. We're on a bus route and close to a small shopping centre, where there's a pharmacy, health centre and pub.
Northlea Court's lovely gardens include a rose arbour in memory of people who've lived here before.
There's easy access into the home and all resident areas are accessible to people in wheelchairs. All bedrooms have en-suites and great personal-safety features. We love residents and their families to personalise these spaces to make them more familiar and homely.
Life at Northlea Court Care Home
Northlea Court's dedicated activity coordinator ensures each person living here has something enjoyable and interesting to occupy their time. Our programme can include pub quizzes, dominoes and exercises.
We also have a church service on the first Tuesday of each month, and communion is offered to all every Sunday.
We looked at other nursing homes but none could compare with
Northlea Court. We chose Northlea for our Mum after she'd had a severe stroke and couldn't return home. She was only with them for a short time but the staff were wonderful. She was treated as a person and not a number. Her dignity and individuality was respected. The whole team are extremely professional and very empathetic to resident's
family and friends. That laced with genuine caring made us feel that Northlea was the next best place for Mum other than at home. When she died everyone at Northlea was genuinely upset and offered us their unconditional support.
My aunt has been in this home for just over 12 months and she is very happy and content and consequently so are her family. The staff are caring, kind and very good-humoured. They have varied activities and take them into the garden on hot days -complete with straw hats and orange juice. I feel so relieved she is such a happy place.
I have worked in health care for more than 40 years. I am so happy with the care, compassion, and humour among the staff in this superb care home. I would know if this ambience was not authentic, thank you to all concerned.
I found the care my auntie received during her short stay at Northlea outstanding. All staff were so patient and caring and treated my aunt with dignity throughout. All staff were approachable at all times and were very supportive with myself and all family members. They made this difficult time so much more bearable for both my aunt and family. She passed away very peacefully in a caring, homely environment.
I have found this home very caring, my mother has always been a very private person, and not a mixer, they have got her to the dining hall and sits in the lounge, she is always saying the staff are very good, she is very well looked after, they always make you welcome when you visit and let you make tea and coffee in the kitchen, my mum has had an awful year , she has vascular dementia, incontinence and cant walk, I thank the staff and the manager so much for all they do, the bed rails around the bed makes us not worry that she will get out and try walking and fall over which has happened before, she gets all her medication on time, the residents all look happy, think the staff are always on the go, but always happy, I recommend this home.
This has to be one of the lovely care homes I have been to. My dad passed away a short time ago, but the level of care, love and dignity was a five star rating from me. Sandra the manager was so helpful. But all of the carers threated my dad as if he was their own. He was safe, clean and so well looked after. I can never thank them enough.
All the staff are excellent and caring. This gives me peace of mind knowing that my father is in a good safe caring place. The care my father receives is outstanding. He loves the activities and enjoys taking part. Thanks to Carol for the activities. And thanks to Lorraine and Roz and all the staff.
My aunt has been a resident at Northlea for three years. During that time I have noticed the calibre of the care staff. They are always caring and empathic effective and professional. They have time for residents and visitors and their friendly approachable demeanour is reflected in a happy caring home. Thank You
Very happy with dad's care. Staff extremely good. Food excellent. Very happy with everything.
Staff and facilities are all good, room is kept clean, tidy and warm. Staff are always cheerful and helpful in all ways and at all times the meals are good.

Four Seasons Health Care picked up three accolades on Tuesday 5th December 2017 at the Training Journal (TJ) Awards. Winning three categories meant that Four Seasons Health Care led the way, as they were the only organisation to win in multiple categories.
Who were the winners?
The Dementia Care Framework won the ‘Best Change Management Programme’, which is a fantastic achievement and further highlights the positive impact this is having on the lives of people living in Four Seasons homes with dementia.
The Judges commented: “We recognise Four Health Care work in the field of dementia care as innovative and thorough in its approach, being both effective and transformative. It had a bold vision that was well executed in a challenging environment.”
The Care Home Nursing Journal (CNJ), Four Seasons’ very own internal publication to develop nurse knowledge and share best practice won its category of ‘Best Organisational Development Programme'.
The Judges commented: “The design of this intervention, which on the surface appears very simple, completely meets the needs of the organisation and has had significant impact. A particular strength was that Four Seasons Health Care decided to make these resources freely available to anyone, making the impact even greater and is improving healthcare outcomes in care homes everywhere.”
Finally, Louise Morris the Care Home Assistant Practitioner (CHAP) Lead won the main award of the night and was crowned the ‘Learning and Development Professional of the Year’.
The Judges stated: “Louise has had a transformational impact, not only on the learning and development of staff at Four Seasons Health Care, but also on the well-being of residents. Through a review of an existing programme, Louise drove design and improvement which has had significant benefits through improved care, staff practice and confidence and commitment to their work and professional development.”
Congratulations to everyone on this fantastic achievement!

Dean Grey’s mother-in-law, Maud recently moved into Northlea Court Care Home in Cramlington from her home town of Barnsley.
Recently Dean ran the 2017 Great North Run in aid of the Northlea Court Residents Fund in his own words this is what motivated him to do it:
"Maud lived in her own flat until recently. Unfortunately Maud suffers from Alzheimer’s and the progression of the disease meant that she was becoming increasingly confused. Her sister was finding it more and more difficult to help and Maud was taken into emergency care whilst my wife and I were away on holiday. It was obvious on our return that Maud wouldn't be able to return to her old flat in Barnsley and she came to stay with us. However, she kept leaving the house and getting lost. Consequently, we were unable to leave her on her own. As we both work, a solution had to be found and we were very fortunate in securing a place for Maud at Northlea Court.
“Although it is fair to say that we were all initially apprehensive she has now been here for a while and is gradually settling into her new home and making friends.
“I cannot speak highly enough of the care Maud has received since she was moved to Northlea and the support and advice the staff at the home have given my wife and I at a very difficult time. The professionalism of all the care workers and nurses is first rate and their efforts to make Northlea Court a comfortable, stimulating and safe home for all the residents are exemplary. I am also impressed that every time I have visited (nearly every day since Maud arrived) I have always been met by a ready and genuine smile. It is comforting to know that your relative is in a place where they will be well cared for and their physical and mental needs monitored and looked after."
Dean's time for the run was 2hrs 33 mins!
Well done Dean for your amazing achievement and thank you for the money you raised for Northlea Court.
