Ashfield Court Care Home is situated in the Forest Hall area of Newcastle. It is within easy walking distance of local shops and amenities and is well served by public transport.

Many people who visit Ashfield Court comment on the warm and homely feel they get the minute they walk in and are greeted by friendly, smiling staff.

It has a people-centred approach and staff like to get to know their residents properly, not just on the surface.

New residents are asked to fill in a ‘This is your life’ book, so Ashfield Court can learn about their personal history – where they went to school, their career, their hobbies, likes and dislikes, and so on. The families are asked to complete if the residents are unable to do so.

With this information, the home can interact with residents in a much more meaningful way. It also helps that the majority of staff and residents are from this area of Newcastle.

There is a wide range of activities for residents but a fairly recent development has been an attachment to the Hen Power project, which gives them access to many arts and crafts activities. Ashfield was chosen because artwork by residents went on exhibition in Newcastle.

A local church organises tea and coffee mornings. Ashfield is the venue for people to sit, have meals and chat with residents and find out about the home.

A Friends of Ashfield group has been set up. It is run by the residents – Ashfield is applying for Lottery funding through Hen Power.

The residents regularly go out into the community and the community comes to them. Once a month there’s a trip out for a pub lunch for residents and their families. Local schools often come in for sing-alongs.

There is a secure garden, which is used regularly by the residents, sometimes for arts and crafts activities, weather permitting.
