Red Brick House Care Home is situated in the village of Prudhoe, about 10 miles west of Newcastle and close to the picturesque Northumberland countryside.

We care for up to fifty people, in a highly professional, compassionate and welcoming environment that caters for all the needs of our residents. What’s more, we treat them with respect, and we know how important it is for them to retain their dignity. We also recognise that they each have individual needs. We work hard to keep our standards high, but we also try to create an informal atmosphere, where we can all relax and enjoy a laugh.  That’s important for our residents, and for us! 

We provide long term care, as well as day and respite care for local residents.  Our nursing staff are trained in specialist cancer, stroke and dementia care.

A critical factor in enabling us to maintain a consistently high quality of care is our minimal staff turnover.  We have a highly professional working environment, but at the same time it is relaxed, friendly and supportive of our staff, so we’re not really surprised that people enjoy working here, and don’t feel the need to move on. 

We do all we can to keep residents mentally and physically active.  To this end, we arrange regular excursions, and we encourage residents who have particular hobbies or interests to continue with them.

One of the best things I can say about Red Brick House is that it’s a joy and a pleasure to work here.  I manage a highly motivated and capable team that is bursting with enthusiasm and energy.  We all get tremendous satisfaction from delivering a really high standard of care to the residents, and I think everyone recognises that by doing that we’re making our own jobs more enjoyable and rewarding.  We build up genuinely meaningful relationships with the residents, and their families, and I think that makes a huge difference to our residents’ general quality of life and wellbeing. 

Most of our staff living within walking distance of Red Brick, and this has helped us to build strong links with families, friends and other health professionals, as well as the wider local community.  The excellent feedback we get from all these people keeps us highly motivated and makes it all worthwhile!
