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

Some residents come to us for a brief respite stay, giving carers a well-earned break. Others receive round-the clock residential support ranging from simple assistance with everyday living to specialist nursing. In every case we’re here to provide all the care their own family could wish for. You’ll find us in a quiet location just a short walk from Durham’s charming city centre with its shops and other amenities including public transport. 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.

Connectivity for resident testing, monitoring & communications

Infection control and the safety of both residents and staff often requires quarantine measures and the isolation of care home residents. To test, monitor and allow residents to communicate with relatives, the prevalence of room-level connectivity within the home is becoming increasingly relevant.

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 dietitians 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, Dinner, Lunch.

Dietary Options
Diabetic, Pureed, Vegan, Vegetarian.

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 Hallgarth we run a busy activities programme so residents are never without something to do, including themed days, poetry club, visiting entertainers, and day trips out, often to the Beamish Museum.

We have good community links and receive regular visits from Durham Cricket Club, Grays College, and Rhythm not Blues. Our residents love when people come along and visit as it allows them to interact with people outside of the home.
