Residential Care
Nursing care
Dementia care
Respite care
Palliative care

Three miles outside of Durham, our care home is situated in the heart of Brandon – a beautiful small rural village.

We are in close proximity to all the shops, churches and community centre Brandon has to offer. While still being able to see the top of Durham’s cathedral from our care home windows.

Along with our beautiful spot, we also provide a wide range of care home provisions. Our dedicated team deliver residential care, nursing care, dementia care, palliative care and respite care with true devotion and compassion.

We are more than just a care home in County Durham, we are a forever home. Our care and support evolve as and when it needs to. Providing residents and their loved ones with peace of mind that the upheaval of moving into a care home only has to happen once.

Living life to the full in our care home

We were praised in our most recent CQC care home report for the activities and the lifestyle we promote for our residents. Inspectors quoted: “People were actively engaged in a range of activities and had opportunities to access the wider community”.

This is so important to us. We strongly believe that our residents should spend their time as they choose. We empower them to remain active members of their Brandon community, while reigniting hobbies and pastimes they’ve always adored.

That’s why no two days are the same in Rushyfields. You can find us taking part in exercise sessions one day, to arts and crafts the next.

We even have a range of entertainers from across Country Durham performing right in the heart of our care home. Our residents’ social lives have never been so jam-packed, which is a real highlight for those living in our residential care suites and those living with dementia.

For our residents who are receiving nursing care, we do also provide more intimate one-to-one activities. From pampering sessions in the comfort of our very own hairdressing salon to Namaste hand massages.

And during the warmer weather our team take residents on summer trips out, to places like local garden centres and the beach at South Shields.

Care home review for Rushyfields

Above all, Rushyfields is our residents’ home. A safe and secure care home with a team that truly enrich the lives of our residents with dignified care and inspiring activities.

Our recent CQC report praised our level of safety, effectiveness, caring, responsiveness and management. We also receive high praise from visitors and health professionals. Loved ones even take the time to leave positive reviews on carehome.co.uk – an independent care home review site.

Pricing information

It is usual for residents in care homes to contribute to the cost of their own care. Some people have the resources to pay for their care in full, whilst others make means-tested contributions. Our weekly fees are individual to each of our residents and are subject to a pre-admission assessment, which is required to truly understand the level of care and support needed.

Our 2022 weekly care fees for residential care start from £855 and £996 for nursing care, but maybe in the region of 20% more. This depends on your care needs and the type of bedroom that is right for you, from our standard rooms through to our premium bedroom options.

*If you require more specialist care such as 1-2-1 support your weekly fee could be higher.
