Aycliffe Care Home
Location and contact details
Aycliffe Care Home is situated in Newton Aycliffe, County Durham, just a five minute walk away from the town centre.
It has received a lot of positive feedback about the warm and friendly greeting it gives to visitors . The setting is well known for its generous hospitality!
Staff engage in a very honest, natural way with the residents. They really care about them. They always make sure they look presentable – that the ladies have their make-up on and their clothing and accessories match, that the gents are shaved and their hair combed.
When members of staff pass the residents they’re always very positive and affectionate, at the same time treating them with respect and dignity.
Aycliffe has a full-time activities co-ordinator who keeps the residents active. There is a film club. The local church has a weekly listening service. There is also a resident committee which produces a newsletter.
There’s plenty going on outside the home as well. Residents often get a taxi to town to shop, go to a café, the library, the leisure centre or perhaps to the ice cream parlour. Residents have regular trips out for example to the petting zoos.
