Located in the centre of Ashington, our purpose-built home is set in beautifully maintained grounds and is surrounded by local amenities. We provide care and support to older people, including people living with dementia in our dedicated Memory Lane Community.
Station Court bases its person-centred approach to care around its care planning regime, which involves pre-admission assessments and the drawing up of detailed care plans with the individual concerned and their relatives on admission. Care plans are regularly reviewed and help to form a basis for activities, diet and social contacts, amongst other areas.
The Care Quality Commission is the independent regulator for the care sector in England. On their most recent inspection visit to Station Court they noted (CQC's copyright, reporting on a visit in July 2013) relatives as reporting, ‘I can only praise Station Court… The staff are pleasant, helpful and there is an open door policy – nothing to hide,’ and ‘I can’t praise them enough… the care at the home has been exceptional … very person centred.’
Writing about the home the inspector noted: ‘We saw people enjoyed some very positive interactions with staff during lunch,’ and that there was ‘easy access to occupational resources such as objects of interest, books, magazines, pictures, music and games.’
We welcome visitors at Station Court and would be pleased to see you or to offer advice if we can help.
