South Chowdene Nursing Home in Chowdene, Gateshead
Located in Low Fell, a quiet residential area in Gateshead, South Chowdene care home is surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens. It provides 24-hours nursing care, in addition to personal support to frail older people, people with long-term illnesses, people with disabilities or sensory deficits and people who need support generally.
Care and support at our nursing home 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. More information is built up on admission and over time as we get to know the person and their family. The care plan covers areas like needs, risks, likes and dislikes, so it provides a basis for areas as diverse as deciding about activities programmes, looking at any rehabilitative medical needs and discussions with our chef about diet (who will make sure meal choices reflect individual tastes). Regular reviews with the person we support, relatives, our team and any relevant health professional are an important element of the system.
We are always happy to see visitors or to help callers with advice.
