Dene Park House
Location and contact details
Dene Park House Care Home is located in Newcastle upon Tyne, close to the Metro Centre.
Staff are always keen to make a good impression, so visitors to Dene Park are welcomed with a smile and offered ‘a cuppa’, whatever the reason for their visit. This is particularly important if they are looking for a care home for their loved ones – often a traumatic time for a family. Visitors are usually shown around the home and introduced to care staff, the residents and, when appropriate, their families.
Residents have lots of things going on, inside and outside of the home. There are arts and crafts sessions, a knitting club and a resident forum. A local dance class comes in, as well as a theatre group which puts on pantomimes. There are regular visits from singers, and residents often join in. The home is next door to The Victory pub, which can be used regularly by residents if they desire. There is also a bar at the home where residents can enjoy a drink with their visitors.
Residents can get involved in the running of the home, with some residents helping to lay the tables for meals and others helping to hoover.
