Crofton Court Care Home is situated in Blyth, Northumberland. It is in the town centre, next to the Community Hospital. There is easy access to shops and cafés, the library and community centres. There are also very good public transport links. Blyth port is five minutes walk away.

Crofton Court has a lovely, welcoming feel to it. It is very peaceful, light and airy. Visitors often say that it’s not like a Care Home: it’s a home!

Person-centred care is at the heart of our working ethos. Staff interact with residents in a polite but friendly manner. They get to know the things they like and don’t like, as well as their little quirks. The staff are always cheery and good humoured, and that rubs off on the residents. It’s fair to say that we really are one big happy family!

We work hard to ensure that the residents are given opportunities to be as physically and mentally active as they wish to be. We have excellent links with a local Tai Chi group, who come in once a fortnight to give lessons. We also have fortnightly visits from a Just Jhoon group, who do Bollywoood-style exercises sessions, which can be done standing or sitting. They are very popular.

We have a big focus on music, with regular visits from entertainers who play the type of music that our residents like, so we can get them singing and dancing. This is particularly good for those with dementia. We have excellent links with Mind Active – they organise activities here, and our residents go to their social events in the town. Local primary school choirs often come to us, and residents sometimes visit their schools. A local artist does art classes with residents. The latest project is focusing on Old Blyth – again good for our dementia residents. A local church holds regular services here, and a group comes in to read bible stories, usually followed up by a related film.

In short, our residents our very busy! However, some of them do like to watch TV, so we have two lounges: one with and one without a TV.
