Trusted to care in County Durham
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.
If you care for an older loved one at home and need some time away this summer – our teams can help. Right now, we’re offering pre-bookable respite stays up until the end of August 2022.
At Stanley Park we believe in supporting your loved one to continue to enjoy fulfilling experiences every day. That might mean taking part in our different organised activities, or doing small tasks around the home.
Stanley Park provides a full range of care, including dementia care. We always perform an assessment of every prospective new resident before they join us, so we know we can give them the care they need.Read more

I love walking around of the home talking to residents and my team and finding out what’s going on. It’s really fulfilling to see residents enjoying being in a happy environment, feeling safe and cared for.Christine DudleyHome Manager

We are very pleased to be able to say that, as the Spring booster Covid vaccination is being provided to residents in our homes, the additional protection and our continued infection prevention and control measures means we can start ‘living with Covid’ and regain more normality in day-to-day care home life.Read more about our approach
