Welcome to Archers Park Dementia Care Home
A specialist dementia care home in Sunderland (Farringdon)
Rated Good by our regulators CQC, Archers Park is a 40-bed specialist dementia care home in Farringdon, Sunderland. Being awarded ‘Gold’ standard by Sunderland Council in 2018 was a fantastic achievement for our home and is all thanks to our dedicated and hardworking team of staff.
With all residents under one GP practice, we are able to have residents care and needs looked after in a seamless way. As many of the residents are local to the area, they help us to maintain strong community links. We also work closely with other nearby homes so that if residents needs do change we can support transfer of care in a hassle-free way.
Our long-serving members of staff often organise many sensory and musical activities along with reminiscence sessions and food-related activities to engage residents and keep them feeling relaxed. Our summer house is the perfect haven on a sunny day, residents can often be found having drinks outside or walking around the secluded garden enjoying the fresh air.

“So pleased my Mam is in Archers Park Care Home. I feel happy knowing she is getting the best dementia care from all the dedicated staff and management at these difficult times. Love watching the pictures and videos they put on the website, the residents look like they are having so much fun, always something going on for the residents.”

Meet the Manager
Hello, my name is Marlena Derda and I am the Home Manager at Archers Park Care Home. I began my career working as a care assistant in 2011 before progressing to a senior care assistant. My passion for medication management and end of life care for residents led me to complete my Level 2 and 3 NVQ.
In 2019 I joined the Orchard family working as a Deputy Manager and completed my NVQ level 5 in Leadership and Management in this time before progressing to Home Manager in 2021. I am overjoyed at the opportunity to manage Archers Park and work alongside the wonderful dementia care staff and residents. I am very excited to strive towards making this home the best it can be.
