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.

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 from Northlea Court Care Home in Cramlington pitted their wits against officers from the local policing team in a bid to earn money for charity.
Residents and officers from Bedlington Police Station played against each other to raise money for the NSPCC Board Game Event.
Sandra Smith, Home Manager, said: “The police were taking part in the NSPCC Board Game Event and asked if the residents at the home wanted to get involved. They naturally jumped at the chance, and enjoyed raising money for the worthy cause. A good time was had by all and under the eagle eye of our adjudicators no cheating was caught.”
