Beechwood Court in Earsdon has been fully refurbished and is now a Sheltered Housing Scheme. This fantastic new development is made up of 12 self-contained flats which have been designed to provide homely comforts and independence, while being monitored by skilled professionals for any health, well-being or security concerns giving both residents and loved ones peace of mind.

Each of the 12 apartments has a different layout however all are modern and spacious with neutral decors, benefitting from great natural light and views of the gardens. As well as offering a huge range of day care services to residents, we also encourage members of the community to join us in our daily activities.

What is a Sheltered Housing Scheme? – Sheltered Housing is a form of specialist housing for older people and is growing in popularity. It is referred to by different names, but is all designed to meet the needs of frailer older people and has higher levels of care and support on-site. These properties can be rented (like Beechwood Court) or in some cases owned. Services and facilities provided may vary considerably but typically include 24 hour staffing, some personal care, domestic help, an assisted bathroom, a restaurant or dining room and a residents’ lounge.

Why choose us ? – The property is situated in the beautiful village of Earsdon which is close to Whitley Bay and has excellent transport links to the town centre. The local shops are 15 minutes' walking distance and include a post office and a convenience store. There is also a doctor's surgery less than a quarter of a mile away. Other local amenities include a nearby Metro train station and a community centre. We understand that sometimes you like to be alone and at other times you may want to be more sociable. Our properties give you that freedom. At Beechwood Court we run social activities including bingo, luncheons, church services, coffee mornings, entertainment and occasional day trips. You will not need to worry about maintenance and repairs or gardening upkeep as we take care of those.
