Our care home in the village of Murton, near Seaham, offers superb, tailored care and the warmest of welcomes.
The friendly, professional team at Church View provides personalised residential, and respite care for up to 42 older people, including those with dementia. We also offer supportive and sensitive end of life care.
A family home-from-home
Residents are at the heart of everything we do, and we treat each person as an individual. When your loved one joins us, we will find out everything we can about their life so that we can personalise every aspect of their time with us to their precise needs, interests and wishes.
We love to welcome family and friends: you’re welcome to visit your loved one at any time. We've even turned one of our lounges into a living room, with a big box of toys for younger family members. There are different lounges where you can chat to your loved one, or where they can watch television, pursue their hobbies or read the paper. Our lovely gardens are popular on warmer days too, with their different seating areas, greenhouse, and views of the church next door.
Relax in your own space
Each of the bedrooms at Church View is airy, bright and comfortable and has en-suite facilities, stylish furniture, a 24-hour nurse call system and telephone and TV sockets. We encourage every resident to personalise their room with small pieces of their own furniture and other treasured possessions to make them feel more at home. Some rooms have their own front doors, so that residents can get newspapers delivered directly to them for an added sense of independence.
