Nursing Home Durham

Here at Bowburn Care Centre in Durham, we provide quality care to all of our residents. Whether they need residential care with some support with daily living, or 24-hour nursing care, we can help. Our nursing care team is experienced and dedicated and they provide care throughout the day and night with kindness and compassion. If you are looking for a nursing care home in or around Durham, then look no further.

Highly Trained and Caring Staff

Part of our ethos here at St Philips Care is to train, support and nurture our staff so that they have the confidence, training, and foundations to provide high-quality care to all of our residents. During our recruitment process, we look for the qualities that make a brilliant carer, namely, kindness, compassion, and dedication. Our initial training program helps to build skills, and our ongoing training and development, allows our carers to build their skills and knowledge. We support our carers as they advance through their care career with us. This framework of training and support means that the care that our teams deliver is always of the highest quality.

Services and Care Offered in our Care Home

Here at Bowburn Care Centre in Durham, we offer both residential and nursing care. Offering both types of care means that we can offer continuity of care over the years. Many people move into a residential care home, then as their care needs increase find themselves in the difficult position of having to move care homes. Not with us, here at Bowburn Care Centre, we have the capabilities to care for our residents, even as their care needs increase. Whether you are looking for respite care after an illness or operation, or are looking for long-term care, we can help.

Engaging Activities and Social Life for Residents at our Care Home

We have regular activities throughout the day at our care home. Each activity is designed so that it can be adjusted to the capabilities of each resident. Some residents may have disabilities where they need extra support to join in, and we always make sure that they can. Disabilities should never be a barrier to enjoyment or inclusion.

As a group of professional carers, we specialize in the health and well being of people from all walks of life and all ages, and take enormous pride in the high levels of care that we deliver.

Our homes offer a range of support for adult and elderly people whether that is for residential, dementia, mental health or respite care. We pride ourselves on our experienced, highly trained teams which include carers, support staff, and registered nurses and the group offers all of our teams the resources to meet our residents’ daily needs.


St Philips Care focuses each and every care plan on the individual, taking into consideration their personal requirements and tastes.

We take time out to know and understand our residents even before they move in, not only by talking to them but also by including their family and friends during their stay to make sure that we have the best possible plan tailored to each individual.

We consider not only care aspects but also personal interests, social life, working life, and companionships. Special consideration is given to their personal space and bedroom, their favourite meals and dinner choices, understanding, monitoring and developing a personal care plan and generally keeping good channels of communication with family and friends at all times.

CQC overall rating


The staff at Alma McFadyen House treated my gran as if she were part of their family. The house always felt so homely. During a pandemic, the staff showed up every day with smiles on their faces and genius ideas to keep the residents entertained, included, and valued.

Granddaughter of a resident at Alma McFayden

Over the past 6 months, Mum has settled well into her new setting. The staff are attentive and always willing to listen and help out where possible and I feel have a genuine care for all of the residents. On a personal level, it is lovely to see a hand on a shoulder or for a member of staff to be holding a resident’s hand offering comfort or reassurance.

Daughter of a resident at Pine Trees

My husband has been in Roxholm on three separate occasions for respite and he thoroughly enjoys his week there. The staff are very welcoming and friendly as soon as you enter the building and the bedrooms are always clean and comfortable. He says that the food is excellent and I can relax whilst he is there as I know that he is being very well cared for.

Wife of resident at Roxholm

Mam initially entered this care home for 4 weeks of respite due to her struggling to live independently. She has always been against ending up in a care home. She has settled in very quickly informing me that the staff are lovely and can’t do enough for her. She feels safe and well cared for. So much so that she has told her social worker that she wishes to stay rather than return home. Due to her own wish and problems living alone, she may get her wish.

Son of resident at Chilton

Finally! A care home that has provided my son with a safe, happy and beautiful home. What a delight this care home is. The staff are well trained, and their obvious job satisfaction is evident, always willing to keep and ensure their first priority are those they care for. The management takes every effort to ensure that a happy environment is essential. Thank you!

Mother of a resident at Highlands

For my first respite stay in a care home I chose Ravendale Hall; I wasn’t disappointed in my choice. The large country home standing in its extensive grounds was what appealed to me. I was warmly welcomed by friendly and happy, supportive carers. Daily entertainment was always on offer if you wanted to take part as many of the residents did. The food was extremely good and catered for a well-balanced diet. You were offered the choice of two lunchtime meals. My room was bright and spacious. Overall I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Ravendale Hall due to happy and helpful staff along with the cleanliness. Thank you for a very enjoyable stay.
