Stanley Park

Trusted to care in County Durham


Stanley Park

Welcome to Stanley Park

Stanley Park is a welcoming, purpose-built care home in the small town of Stanley, County Durham. Our skilled and caring team provides a full range of care services for older people, including short-term and permanent residential care, as well as nursing and dementia care. We also deliver sensitive end of life care.

Each of the 72 bedrooms in the home is light and airy, and has en-suite facilities, stylish furniture, and 24-hour nurse call system. Many rooms overlook the gardens, and those on the ground floor have doors which open onto our landscaped gardens.

Residents tell us the sort of home they want here, and we make it happen. We have a pub which is the hub of the home and used for everything from quizzes to karaoke. Some residents are living with dementia, so we have different tactile objects around the home for them to use, and we’ve decorated walls in the home to look like shop fronts.

What others have to say

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

It is a lovely, spacious environment which always looked so clean and tidy every day our family visited. The staff are all so incredible and do an amazing job under, at times, very trying circumstances and always have a smile for residents and visitors alike. My mum was so well cared for and loved by the staff.

The Greener family, relatives of a resident, February 2020

I selected Stanley Park as it was by far the best mainly due to the attention, love and overall care. Mum looked better than I have seen her in over 3 years. Not only was she happy, well settled but her appearance was immaculate. I witnessed my mother dancing and engaging with everyone. Christine and her excellent team are doing an incredible job.

Relative of resident, December 2019

The teams level of attention to all the residents, managing their care and accommodating the varied personalities is just beyond the call of duty and expectation. The care home is always immaculate and full of laughter.

Relative of a resident, December 2019

They all try to get involved. My mum comes across as aggressive but I feel that they're all good with her and make her feel very welcome.

Relative of resident, November 2019

They understand what she needs and what she has. If she is in pain they respond straight away.
