Welcome to Archers Court Care Home - A specialist nursing and short term respite care home in Farringdon, Sunderland.
My name is Libby Taws and I am the Home Manager here at Archers Court Care Home in Sunderland. I have worked in the Care Sector for over thirty years and I have been the Manager of this Orchard Care Home since July 2018.
Our care home provides both nursing and short term respite care to elderly residents and was rated as 'Gold' standard by Sunderland Council in 2018. Archers Court Care Home has good public transport links and is located on a main bus route making it easy for residents, family and friends to access.
All staff at our care home are qualified in Level 2 "Behaviours Which Challenge" and have basic skills in British Sign Language. Alongside this, the staff at Archers Court Care Home also take part in Communication and Interaction Training, this teaches us how to better interact with people living with dementia and how we can assist them in reducing stress.
Our care home has a dedicated Activities Coordinator who provides a varied programme of events and activities which appeal to our resident's interests and hobbies. This includes regular trips out on the minibus, visits from the local Farringdon Primary School whom we have a close relationship with and hosting parties at the home for various occasions.
