Donwell House Care Home

Wellgarth Road,
Donwell Village,
Tyne and Wear
NE37 1EE

Located in Donwell Village, a quiet suburb of Washington, we are conveniently located between Newcastle Upon Tyne and Sunderland. We offer residential, nursing, dementia and palliative care.

Our approach to ongoing healthcare for the elderly is about more than simply meeting the care needs of our residents, but about looking after their overall well-being. Our experienced and qualified team of nurses and carers work closely with our residents to help them live an independent life with as much or as little support as they wish.

As part of our on-going commitment to offer the highest quality of care in a comfortable environment, we have recently completed an extensive renovation programme to give our home a fresh, but traditional look and feel.

Your Care

Our team of trained nurses and carers provide exemplary standards of nursing and residential care, including dementia care, in our specialist dementia suites.

We also offer specialised respite care for those who need a little extra support while in convalescence or for a short break. We work closely with each of our residents and their families to create a personalised care plan, tailored to you, your likes and your needs. You’ll find everyone here knowledgeable, friendly and above all, caring. It’s important to us that every resident feels welcome, safe and well looked after.

Your Home

There’s always something going on at Donwell House. With three dedicated Activities Co-ordinators we always have a range of activities planned, as well as regular outings. Ensuring the well-being of our residents means that we always consider what’s important to you: whether that’s a quiet place to relax, or a particular meal that you’re craving, we are here to help. Our Chef creates a varied menu and is happy to cater to your preferences and dietary requirements.

Your Facilities

Donwell House provides a very relaxed and comfortable lifestyle to those who choose us as their home. Our recent renovation programme has created a wonderful, light and airy environment, with particular attention to our dementia suites. We also have comfortable lounge and dining areas for all our residents to enjoy at their leisure, providing high levels of quality and choice, so everyone can enjoy the lifestyle – and home comforts – they wish.
