A care home in south east Northumberland is opening its doors to the public this week.

Northlea Court Care Home, in Cramlington, is taking part in Care Home Open Day on Friday, June 19, to encourage local people to visit such accommodation in their community and work together to develop better relationships.

As part of the event, Northlea Court is hosting a family fun day with a variety of games and activities, including dominoes, board and card games, and bowling.

Sandra Smith, manager at the home, said: “This is a great way to show the excellent services on offer and the fantastic work that goes on at Northlea Court.

“Some people still have misconceptions about care homes so we are keen to dispel any myths and for people to come and have a look around, meet the staff and our residents.”
