The Old Vicarage in North Shields has recently been awarded a Grade 1 Rating from North Tyneside Council and our newly renovated accommodation has 37 rooms which are all en-suite. The home has been designed to ensure that each and every resident feels that they are part of a wider family, valued, included, at home and with friends. Our home benefits from a TV lounge where residents can watch a favorite program and catch up or there is the quiet lounge where you can read a book or have chat with friends.
We also have a brand new open and airy dining area where residents can enjoy freshly prepared meals and socialise with others. We actively encourage residents to contribute to meal plans to ensure that everyone gets to eat the food they enjoy and we do cater for individual tastes, dietary needs (both medical and allergies) and cultural preferences. We change menus regularly and also have drinks and snacks available at all times.
Other key features of The Old Vicarage are the landscaped communal gardens and patio area, perfect for relaxing on a sunny afternoon. The sensory room, designated smoking areas, lift and wheel chair access and nurse call system.
Independence, respect, quality of life and dignity are all high on our agenda and we truly believe that this shines through in the high level of care we provide to residents and the personal touches we integrate into core services that make what we do here at The Old Vicarage extra special.
