Mallard Court Care Home in Bridlington

Mallard Court provides 24-hour nursing care and personal support to older people, older people with disabilities, older people with sensory loss and older people living with dementia, offered expert support in a dedicated Memory Lane Community. We also offer respite care and short breaks.

Set in its own extensive, wheelchair accessible gardens, located just a mile away from Bridlington town centre and half a mile from beautiful blue flag beaches, the home is sited on a quiet residential estate and is easily accessible by road.

Care and support at Mallard Court is delivered through personalised care planning, a process that begins with assessment, carried out before admission where possible, and completed with the individual concerned, together with relatives. Information is built up on admission and at regular reviews. It covers areas like needs, risks, likes and dislikes, so it provides a basis for areas as diverse as deciding about activities programmes and external contacts, looking at any rehabilitative medical needs and discussions with our chef about diet (he will tailor meal choices to the individual). Regular reviews and updates with the individual, relatives, our team and any relevant health professional are an important element of the system.

We welcome visitors and we’d love to show you round.

Our Team

The dedicated and experienced team are passionate about providing quality care to each individual living at the home.

Sarah Kirk

General Manager

Welcome to Mallard Court, I am the General Manager here.

Having trained as a nursery nurse from leaving school, I had the opportunity to work in France before returning to the UK, where I qualified in Assessing and Teaching before setting up a children's nursery from scratch. I had the opportunity to look after some stars along the way in doing this. I learnt my skills as a manager very quickly which lead me into my nurse training. Once qualified I joined another home working as a Senior nurse and Home Trainer, and was selected in the Barchester Care awards. For the last 8 years whilst working for Barchester my carer has continued to develop to where I find myself at Mallard Court.  My spare time, yes I have some, is spent with my daughter and step daughter, and the many challenges they throw at me in their teenage years.
