Our care home is located in the former mining community of Castletown, and boats a ‘Gold’ rating by Sunderland City Council 2018.

Many of our staff at Lansbury Court Care Home, have been with the home for over ten years and are experienced in caring for people with physical disabilities as a result of a stroke. We are regarded highly for our End of Life Care and are supported by District Nurses to provide catheter care.

At Lansbury Court Care Home we bed facilities for 56 residents, with several ensuite rooms, all decorated to high standards with modern furnishings and fittings. We also have a 50s style diner on the dementia unit of our care home which is very popular amongst residents and visitors.
