Our central position in Barnard Castle puts us at the heart of community life.
We offer a variety of group and one-to-one activities, all tailored to the interests of residents. Many people enjoy getting involved in the traditional local craft of proggy - or rag rug - making. We display our mats and other crafts at country fairs and often come away with a prize or two.
Something different every day
Music is a big part of everyday life at Kings Court. It’s a great way for people, particularly those living with dementia, to express themselves.
Faith is important to many of our residents. We hold a monthly non-denominational service at the home.
Enjoying good food
Meal times are a highlight at Kings Court. Our chef serves up a choice of dishes that are tailored to residents’ tastes and preferences. We cater for different dietary needs, and if your loved one fancies something that isn’t on the menu, we’ll cook it especially for them.
We’re always updating menus to reflect feedback from residents and relatives. We have a lovely dining room, with attractively-set tables where residents can eat in small groups. On Sundays everyone enjoys a more informal meal of sandwiches and cake in the lounge – we call it ‘teas on knees’. You’re welcome to join your loved one for a meal whenever you wish.
