Our Home

Welcome to Ashwood Court Nursing Home

Ashwood Court, one of the highest rated dementia nursing homes in the Sunderland area on, is a purpose built care home accommodating up to 30 residents in comfortable, homely en-suite rooms. The home is split across 3 wings; male only EMI, mixed EMI and younger adults with mental health conditions.

Moving a loved one into a care home is a big decision and we understand how stressful this can be. However, it may be the best option for someone who is struggling to live alone, has a complex medical condition or has been assessed suggesting that a care home is the best choice.

In the same time, for some elderly people moving into a nursing home can simply be a decision based on the benefits that living in a care home can offer, such as a feeling of security, companionship, regular activities, ongoing support or nutritional, balanced meals.

Whatever the reason for choosing a care home, this can prove to be the best option for your loved one and it can also help reduce the stress and assist with your own health, social life and general wellbeing.

Here at Ashwood Court, we offer a wide range of services suitable for different needs and choices.

What Our Clients Say

My Mam became a resident at Ashwood Court over 2 years ago following concerns about her care in 2 previous care homes. The friendly staff are extremely patient, kind and understanding towards Mam, despite her challenging behaviour at times, and she has settled in very well. The home and ensuite rooms are kept spotlessly clean and tidy and the meals are now of good quality and have a 5 star rating since the new manager took over recently.

As a family, we are all relieved that Mam is now being so well cared for and is safe and secure in her world. When I visit, the staff are so friendly and always offer a 'cuppa' or even a meal if required and answer any questions or concerns I may have. I would like to say a huge thank you to the Manager, nurses, carers, domestics and kitchen staff for all your hard work and dedication, it is very much appreciated and especially in these challenging times. I would highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a placement for their loved one.

What can I say about this wonderful home, my mam has lived there for 6 years, very sadly but peacefully she passed away today 23rd October. The staff have been beyond amazing, their care and compassion has restored my faith in humanity, they're not only staff they're family , nothing has been a bother to them , they have cared for my mam and us over the last few days with extreme professionalism but above all kindness and compassion, we have laughed and cried together and we are so very very thankful, these people are quite literally angels without wings, thank you from the bottom of our hearts just doesn't seem enough, but thank you.

My father was taken into care at Ashwood Court last November due to worsening of his dementia and the physical and mental toll this was putting on my mother who was his main carer. This was a difficult time for all of the family as my father is much loved but we realised he was no longer safe to remain at home. Though it took some time for both my parents to accept the move the staff were there to support and offer excellent care. This includes emotional support for my mother who visits nearly every day.

The staff, including the cleaning and catering staff, are like a second family to her. Now under new management, it is obvious the manager wishes to instil high standards of nursing care and this evident in my fathers improved physical health and dementia care.
