“After taking the difficult but necessary decision to place our mum into care, the help and reassurance we received from all staff, from management to carers was outstanding. They keep us updated, provide excellent activities for residents and their approach to the job they do is amazing. I couldn't recommend them high enough and can't thank them enough for the help they gave to my brother and I.”

Rated ‘Good’ by our regulator CQC, Lansbury Court is a purpose-built, single-storey modern care home located in the former mining community of Castletown. Our home provides specialist residential, dementia residential and short-term respite care and boasts a ‘Gold’ rating by Sunderland City Council 2018. Lansbury Court benefits from its proximity to the River Wear and Hylton Castle, with transport links to Wessington Way and a bus service that stops directly outside the home.

Our 56 bedrooms are all decorated to high standards with modern furnishings and fittings and several of them are en-suite rooms. We have a 50s style American diner on the dementia unit of our care home which is very popular amongst residents and visitors, they can often be found enjoying a meal or drink in the diner.

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.

Residents spend a lot of their time taking part in an activity or event or enjoying the home gardens, a pleasant and secure outdoor area. We host a monthly gentleman’s club and many of our other activities are based around residents interests and histories. We work hard to ensure that we are supporting our residents to be as independent as possible and to respond to their interests and hobbies.
