Care home life - what it's really like. Support for those looking for a care home in Sunderland

Are you looking for a care home in Sunderland?  The information below is available to help you make those difficult decisions when looking to choose a care home in Sunderland.

We have gathered feedback from Sunderland care home residents, their relatives, friends and staff who told us what it's like to live in the care homes across the City of Sunderland. 

Click on the pink text below the care home name for further information about each of the care homes in Sunderland, or take a quick look at how the home did on the nine key indicators by clicking on the indicator image. All of the homes have two reports, with the top one being the most recent.  Please note any surveys received after the reports have been published have not been included in the final report.  

Every year we seek to improve how we create and deliver these reports. You can read our latest evaluation undertaken in January 2020 here. We have also reviewed all reports for good practice to share with commissioners and service providers – read here how we are sharing those ideas to support residents to live their best life!

If you live in a care home in Sunderland or know someone who does you can share your views and experiences by calling (0191) 514 7145 or email healthwatchsunderland@pcp.uk.net
