About Our Care Home:

Located in the former mining community of Castletown, Lansbury Court Care Home benefits from is close proximity to the River Wear and Hylton Castle, with transport links to Wessington Way. Our staff, many of whom have been with the home for over ten years, are experienced in caring for people with physical disabilities as a result of stroke, and we are regarded highly for our End of Life Care. Our staff are also supported by District Nurses to provide catheter care. Our residents spend time in the communal areas which are used either for socialising or taking part in an interesting activity session. We welcome friends and relatives as often as they wish, and they are often found taking part in an activity or event, or enjoying the home gardens, a pleasant and secure outdoor area.   We work hard to ensure that we are supporting our residents to be as independent as possible and to respond to their individual interests and hobbies. We have access to a minibus and regularly enjoy visits out to the local community or further afield.
