Newark Care Home offers residential care, nursing, and dementia care plus, subject to availability, respite and convalescent care. The care home has a particular expertise in assisting residents with specific medical needs with a team of highly skilled registered nurses.
Our activities coordinator organises a weekly schedule of activities and entertainment to keep life fun and engaging for our residents. Residents are able to explore the local community and beyond through trips and excursions in our own minibus.
Our chef prepares a delicious menu of three meals a day plus snacks. Personal preferences and dietary requirements are fully catered for so that all residents look forward to mealtimes.
Newark Care is a 61 bedded care home, all with en suite that is split into four units so nowhere appears too large. The care home is fortunate to have a large and gorgeous garden. Newark is a huge part of the local community and residents visit other homes in the area and other excursions.
The home plays an integral part in the local community. Residents regularly visit nearby homes for tea and we return the favour. When we are not out seeing a show at the Beacon Arts Centre, we are welcoming guests from local schools, churches and nurseries.
Newark was also the pilot care home for Morton in the Community. Young people from this group visit Newark weekly to play bowls, Pictionary, walking football and also to reminisce and socialise. Thanks to the success of the pilot, Morton in the Community was allocated funding to continue their work across the local authority.
Moira came to Newark Care Home around 10 years ago as an Agency Nurse. Moira loved the friendliness and the warmth of the home immediately.
Moira has been Deputy Manager at the home and was promoted to home manager four years ago.
Moira says: “I love my job within Newark. I can’t hide my passion for what I do. Newark is a real home with a lovely atmosphere and all of the staff have hearts of gold and are the kindest people I believe I have ever met.”
