Welcome to Archers Park - A specialist dementia residential care home.
My names is Sharon Easterbrook-Smith and I am the Home Manager here at Archers Park. I have been Manager here since 2018 and I have worked in the elderly care sector since leaving school starting as a care assistant and progressing to Management.
Just south of the city of Sunderland, Archers Park is a friendly dementia residential care home, focusing on high quality care for older people, some of whom are living with dementia. Our home was rated ‘Gold’ standard by Sunderland Council in 2018, and our cook, Heather Kerr won the "Catering Hero" award at this years Orchard Care Homes' Heart Awards.
Archers Park is a warm and friendly home with a community feel. Residents are encouraged to personalise their own space with pictures and photographs and they are welcome to bring some familiar furnishings to ensure their comfort. Residents are mainly local to the area and as such we maintain strong community links. The staff are a dedicated team and continue to go above and beyond their duties to ensure service users are at the heart of everything they do. Fulfilment and the quality of life of our residents is very important to our staff. Our proactive Activity Coordinator prepares a weekly schedule of activities including local performers, reminiscence sessions and food related activities based around national holidays or a topic such as fine dining.
