Welcome to Archers Court Nursing Care Home!
We provide specialist care for people living with Dementia, tailored to the individual person.
Based in Sunderland, Archers Court Nursing Care Home is the first home in the Orchard Care Homes group to be entirely made up of our innovative Reconnect communities, offering vital specialist care for people living with dementia.
Close to local amenities and shops in Farringdon, our dementia-friendly care home has 37 spacious bedrooms, all with en-suites and plenty of room to add your personal belongings. Whether you want to bring your favourite pillow, photo albums or prefer to keep things minimal, the choice is yours.
Our recently refurbished care home has large communal living rooms, conservatory, beautiful gardens and even an in-house hairdressers, where residents can be pampered by a trained hair stylist. With a team of activity co-ordinators on hand to organise fun events and days out, there's always something exciting happening at Archers Court Nursing Care Home!
Archers Court is exclusively dedicated to supporting those living with all types of dementia; including vascular dementia, Alzheimer's Disease and frontotemporal dementia. From care assistants to dementia support workers, nurses to the senior team, colleagues at Archers Court Nursing Care Home have specialist dementia training to ensure your loved ones receive the best level of care for their needs.
What is a Reconnect community?
Our Reconnect communities offer genuine inclusion by supporting residents to remain independent, active and engaged in daily activities of their choosing. We've adapted our Sunderland care home to include facilities you may find in many people’s homes; such as DIY work rooms, laundry facilities, arts and craft rooms and gardening equipment - perfect for our green-fingered residents!
Our aim is to support people living with dementia to reconnect with their past and feel happy in their new home, whilst our fully-trained carers and nurses assist with daily care requirements. To ensure your loved one receives an exceptional level of care, our Reconnect communities have a higher ratio of carers, nurses and dementia support workers; all of which have experience in caring for those living with dementia.
Our Reconnect communities encourage positive involvement, giving people a voice and supporting them to live a fulfilled life. We put together comprehensive, individualised care plans to support their medical, physical and emotional needs, whilst working with ground-breaking technology, such as PainChek, to help monitor the residents wellbeing and any behaviour changes.

Types of Care provided
“As a family we cannot thank Archers Court Care Home enough for the care they showed us as a family. Dad was admitted to Archers Court in March 2022, we were welcomed into the warm, bright, clean and airy home, it felt very cosy. Dad had a wonderful time there and enjoyed lots of inclusive activities, along with the other residents. The staff were always very professional yet friendly and approachable, nothing was too much trouble and the care Dad received was exemplary.
In particular, in his last few weeks, Dad's care exceeded all our expectations, we didn't think that was possible, but they took the best care of all the family. Thank you just doesn't seem enough, simply amazing, Archers Court!”

Meet the Manager
Hello, my name is Sharon Easterbrook-Smith and I am the Registered Manager at Archers Court Nursing Care Home. My passion for care started at a young age as I grew up living opposite a residential care home and used to visit the residents there often.
This inspired me to pursue a career in care and in 1988 I began my first role as a care assistant. I progressed to senior care assistant before becoming a manager and joining the Orchard family in 2018.
