Meet The Manager

Barbara Barnes is Home Manager at South Quay Care Home.

What makes the resident experience at South Quay so special? We believe it’s our real sense of ‘family’ that has kindness, friendliness and respect right at its heart.

Our team provides residential care for those wanting help with everyday activities, nursing care for people with more complex needs and short-term respite stays to give home carers a well-earned break. We also welcome adults and young people with physical or neurological disabilities. In every case we’re here to provide all the care each person’s own family could wish for.

South Quay is situated on the outskirts of Blyth within easy reach of local shops and other amenities including public transport and the A189. All areas of our home are fresh and cheerful with a choice of lively or quiet communal spaces where residents can relax with each other or welcome family and friends.

Support For Companionship, Personal care, Palliative.

Our Building and Facilities

Our home provides interiors and facilities that are modern and welcoming. We encourage all residents to make their bedrooms feel even cosier with personal touches such as cherished pictures, mementos and small items of furniture.

Residents at South Quay have a large lounge for TV or conversation, a quiet sitting room for reading and a spacious conservatory, all perfect places to meet with visitors. In the warmer months everyone enjoys getting together outdoors in our large secure garden with its summerhouse and a greenhouse which is popular with our more green-fingered residents. We’d be delighted to show you around to experience our homely, welcoming atmosphere for yourself so please arrange to pop in for a chat.

The Importance Of Meal Times

There’s nothing quite like traditional home cooking to give everyone a lift.

We always ask residents and their families about their food preferences and dietary requirements. Our chef and catering team then work with dieticians to create meals that are nutritious and tasty, using fresh seasonal ingredients.

To add more variety, we also make a point of celebrating with special meals and events throughout the year. Residents can be served in our pleasant restaurant-style dining rooms or, if they prefer, they can take their meals in the privacy of their own rooms.

We Serve Food At
Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner.

Dietary Options
Vegetarian, Vegan, Pureed, Diabetic.

Activities Are So Important

Another way we can help our residents to feel at home is for them to do familiar things. So our dedicated Activities Leaders gently encourage residents to carry on doing things they enjoy. If someone had a hobby or pastime they did before they arrived, we’ll encourage them to continue it with us. Or perhaps they may like to learn something new.

The important thing is that we treat every resident as an individual. If they enjoy sharing time with others, either in our home or on an organised trip out, they’re most welcome. Or, if they prefer quiet time alone, we’ll respect that too.

At South Quay we run a busy activities programme so that our residents can get the most out of every day, including crafts, visits from singers, and regular trips out. Being so close to the seafront, it makes for a great day out for our residents and their loved ones to spend quality time together.
