Welcome to Wansbeck Care Home
Welcome to Wansbeck Care Home in the village of Choppington, Northumberland.
Our home is specially adapted to provide a high standard of care 24 hours a day for residents with varying needs, including specialist support, dementia care, help with everyday living, and those just needing a helping hand to retain some independence.
We also offer respite care to give home carers a much-needed break. Some people stay with us on a permanent basis, while others stay for short periods of time.
Residents can pursue their hobbies in communal and quiet lounges throughout the home. We also have a hair salon where residents can enjoy some pampering, and a small cafe, where families and residents can relax and catch up.
Life at Wansbeck Care Home
Residents get very involved with our activities coordinator to plan our programme of events. This includes arts and crafts, baking and gentle gardening, as well as quizzes and musical events.
We encourage a mix of individual and group activities, and produce a monthly newsletter to keep residents and families informed of stuff coming up. We also enjoy catering for special celebrations for residents, such as birthdays and anniversaries.
We support the UK National Dementia Strategy which ensures key life skills are maintained, building purpose and providing nurture for people with dementia. We organise group and individual activities but in our experience it's the one-to-one sessions residents find most calming and rewarding.
Mealtimes are an enjoyable and sociable part of the day. Each of our dining areas has tables laid with fresh flowers and linen, and menus are displayed to show the choices available. Snacks, fresh fruit and refreshments are provided 24 hours a day.
We have themed meals, including food and wine from around the world, and arrange special meal nights when we invite relatives and friends to come along.
I would like to say that the carers in this home is exemplary by most of the staff. The staff all treat residents with the respect and dignity they deserve. Thank you.
A very homely and friendly environment with caring staff.
I would strongly recommend this care home, the care to my dad and all resident is excellent which is most important. The cleanliness is really good also the food choices are excellent. All the staff are really friendly not only with residents but the families as well.
My Mother since living here is so much happier and physically healthier than she was when living at home with carers attending to her and her attending day centre 6 days a week. The staff are all caring and attentive.
I am very happy here in Wansbeck because I have everything I need and I get my wine and cigarettes with my weekly allowance.

Staff are excellent, giving a high standard of care throughout.
Warm, welcoming atmosphere, food is good, staff are knowledgeable and caring.
I thoroughly recommend the above care home, as the staff work extremely hard to provide first class care.
After visiting several care homes around the Blyth area I was recommended Wansbeck Care Home. My mam has Alzheimer's and is very difficult to manage. The staff at Wansbeck are outstanding in their care, training, communication, fund raising events and there respect for residents and family alike. I would recommend Wansbeck Care Home to anyone.

People embark on a career path because it’s something they love, they yearn to develop, grow and blossom in their profession.
Here at Four Seasons Health Care, Care Assistants can up-skill themselves on the organisations Care Home Assistant Practitioner (CHAP) Programme.
On Thursday 20th December 2017, a graduation ceremony was held at Shawcross Social Club in Wigan, celebrating the achievements of 47 newly qualified CHAPs.
Rachael Junge, Managing Director for Four Seasons in the North West of England, said: “Here at Four Seasons Health Care we take great pride in our CHAP Programme, and everyone who undertakes the intense 12 week course. I want to congratulate all of the CHAPs for graduating; your hard work and dedication have paid off. These are the first CHAPs in my area, and I’m absolutely delighted at all of your achievements.
“The Programme is innovative and helps the CHAPs to provide invaluable support to the nurses in the homes.
“All the CHAPs have come through this long journey and I want to thank you for your commitment. I also want to thank the Nurse mentors who have guided and supported the CHAPs every step of the way. Well done everyone!”
The newly qualified CHAPs are now able to provide some general nursing duties such as medication rounds. This benefits the home as it enables the nurse to deal with more complex issues.
