Meet The Manager

Janet Wright is Home Manager at St Helens Care Home.

You’ll find St Helen’s Care Home is situated in a pleasant area in Bishop Auckland. We have good transport links outside the home, making us easily accessible for visitors to pop-in for a chat.

Our Care team offers both residential dementia care and 24-hour nursing dementia care for residents who require it. We also provide respite care to give family or friends a well-earned break, and specialist care for residents suffering from mental health conditions, where we help to re-establish their mental wellbeing, sustain independence and prepare for a move into supported living or their own home.

We have good links with the community and receive weekly visits from the local church hall. We also have visits from the ‘Jelly tots club’, where residents read the children stories every week.

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.
