Don't know what type of care you need? Let us help.

Below are some descriptions of care terms you may have heard. Please have a read, then feel free to contact the care home manager Vicky Morris here at South Bebside Care Home in Blyth, to chat through the specific options we have available.

Residential care

This is for those who may need some help with daily activities such as eating, washing, dressing and getting around, or for those who need a more supportive environment if they're more frail.

Nursing care

Someone may need nursing care if they have a certain physical condition or difficulties. This might include those with long-term conditions, those who need rehabilitation, or those with physical disabilities.

Respite care

Respite care, or short-stay care, means someone can stay at South Bebside Care Home whether they need residential, nursing or dementia care - for shorter periods of time: days or weeks rather than months. Respite care is also suitable for those recovering from illness or a hospital stay.

End of life / palliative care

It's vital that everyone gets the right care and support at this important and sensitive time. Our caring and compassionate teams can give residents and their families all the time, space and help they need during this difficult period.

"When faced with such a difficult decision as placing my trust in a special team to look after my husband I peel privileged to have found South Bebside Care home. The staff are open, friendly, honest, support me, respectful and discreet. It is always a pleasure to go in and made to feel welcome. It is like being part of one big happy family. Laughter and humor are also important within an atmosphere and can have a therapeutic effect for everyone. The premises are always fresh and clean as are the staff!! A true Jewell in the care home world."
