Life at Bowburn Care Centre
Morgan House in the former Northumbrian mining village of Bowburn, is a new purpose-built care home for older people with easy road links to nearby Durham city centre. Whilst the home is at the heart of the quiet village, the A1 (M) is just a few minutes away.
The two-storey building which specialises in residential, nursing and dementia care has four units named after the coal seams well known in the village – Hutton, Tilley, Low Main and Harvey.
Each 20-bedded unit is a self-contained community and has its own lounges, dining rooms and fully-equipped bathrooms with the latest facilities to ensure the health and safety of residents with limited mobility. Each bedroom has en-suite washing facilities.
Regular activities are organised to enable residents to pursue new hobbies and maintain familiar past-times such as art and crafts, flower arranging and games. There are also visits from musicians and entertainers and trips to local landmarks and attractions.
REQUEST A CALLBACK
My mum had been a resident at The Grove since last September and I would just like to say how much she enjoyed it there.
She was kept clean and well-fed.She always said that the meals were lovely couldn’t ask for better.She had clean clothes on everyday.
The staff were always kind and pleasant.When I visited every day they always opened the door to me with a warm welcome and a smile.
Nothing was too much trouble for them.When mum took ill in May they were very concerned, sent for the doctor when he was needed.They couldn’t do enough for her or me while I stayed with her.The staff really did look after her in her final days.My brother and I cannot thank the staff enough for their kindness and thoughtfulness.
