Trusted to care in Seaham


Church View

Welcome to Church View

Our care home in the village of Murton, near Seaham, offers 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.

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.

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.

Life at our home

We think of different ways to support your loved one to stay engaged and independent. Some residents feel a sense of purpose from helping us with our 'daily to do list' which involves setting tables for lunch or dinner, folding laundry, wiping down tables or tidying the lounge. Your loved one is free to do as much or as little as they wish.

We have a lovely home here, and I like nothing more than to get out and about around Church View, seeing residents and spending time with them. We also have a good team, and I’m proud that we continue to have a ‘good’ rating from the CQC. I believe in constantly improving what we do for the benefit of residents and their families, and I’m looking forward to enhancing the home even further, going from good to great.

What others have to say

Here are just some of the comments we’ve received from family, friends and residents at Church View care home.

Just done everything, been brilliant the way they have done it. Judging what I have seen, they have done a fantastic job to keep the home clean and functioning.

Relative of a resident, April 2021

They have kept my mother safe during Corona, done really well in considering the circumstances. I know my mother is getting stimulated and getting good care.

Relative of a resident, April 2021

The friendliness of the staff and the way they make the patients’ welcome. Staff will tell me anything I want to know, my husband had problems swallowing food and the staff kept an eye on him.

Mrs Ella Fenwick, March 2019

The carers go the extra mile to care for her. They get fantastic care; if they need anyone they are there instantly. My mum has dementia, the support is great. The staff are 100% attentive towards her.

Mrs Barbara Rountree, March 2019

The facilities are absolutely brilliant. The staff are very approachable and understanding. The carers and management are brilliant.

Mrs Deborah Haswell, August 2018
