House and Home
Jesmond’s modern, purpose-built property opened in 2008 and today, offers 65 en-suite bedrooms, each equipped with a nurse call system, fully electric comfort bed and LCD TV with Freeview service.
Jesmond’s spacious environment has been designed to create a safe and supportive home for all residents. It also promotes wellbeing for those living with Alzheimer’s and dementia.
The home offers several sociable spaces to meet friends and family, perfect for enjoying friendly catch-ups with a complimentary beverage. Jesmond’s in-house service provides refreshments throughout the day, enhancing the relaxing environment and enabling residents to sit back and enjoy the tranquil surroundings.
Jesmond has a beautiful, enclosed garden which blooms with colour and scent throughout the high days of summer. Residents often take ownership of the gardening and have created wonderful al fresco areas to appeal to all the senses. Our garden house provides a calm sanctuary on long, languid summer days.
