WHAT WE CAN OFFER
Services & Amenities
We take great pride in the quality and range of the amenities and facilities that we provide in-house at Lambton House. We work closely with carefully chosen external service providers to offer a wide variety of optional services.
We work closely with families to offer special requirements and requests where needed. If you would like to discuss any other services or requests in more detail please get in touch.
A home in every sense
Lambton House boasts 57 private en-suite bedrooms as well as a range of communal areas. It is situated in the open countryside on the outskirts of Bournmoor within a few miles of the historic city of Durham. The initial property was built in the early 20th century but has been substantially designed and purposely extended to suit the needs of our residents.
Set in two acres of land with well attended gardens and mature trees, our large sensory garden has been developed for our residents to enjoy at all times of the year, particularly in the spring and summer months.
We are aware that our service users have given up a good deal of their independence on entering a group living situation. Therefore human or technical assistance is offered only when required. We maximise the abilities our service users retain for self care, for independent interaction with others and for carrying our tasks of daily unaided. We encourage everyone to maintain their social contacts.
Privacy & Dignity
We strive to retain as much privacy as possible for our service users by giving help in delicate situations as discreetly as possible with a range of locations around the home for services users to be alone or with selected others. We guarantee privacy whilst using the phone and opening/reading mail and whilst in the company of visiting friends and family.
Disabilities can undermine dignity and so we aim to treat everyone as a valued individual. We encourage services users to present themselves to others as they would wish through their own clothing, their personal appearance and the demeanour in public

The chiropodist visits the home once a month or our residents can ask for a private booking themselves and arrange a visit when required.
Clergy & Churches
We work closely with the local community that has a number of churches of all denominations and local clergy attend the home to provide services.
Most items like books and toiletries are on hand for our service users but we also offer a mobile shop for residents to purchase treats and additional toiletries.
Dentist & Optician
The optician visits twice yearly when a list of residents needing treatment has been compiled or if an assessment has been recommended. Dental visits are also facilitated.
Hairdressers and beauticians call to offer services to both ladies and gentlemen, including haircuts and treatments, nails, facials and hand/foot massages.
We know how difficult it can be to get back on your feet after an illness, which is why we have put together a bespoke package to help regain your independence.
At Lambton House we recognise the importance of food, not just as a source of nutrition but as something to be enjoyed and celebrated – the dining experience is focused around you!
Mealtimes should feel special and this is why we fully dress the Dining Rooms on evenings to recreate the feeling of a local restaurant where your meals would be individually plated in the kitchen and delivered to the Dining Room.
Our menus are rotated every four weeks, you will have a choice at each mealtime and are invited to choose your portion size at every meal and discuss your personal preferences. Our menus offer traditional meals, but they do say variety is the spice of life and our Dish of the Day gives the opportunity for you to sample new dishes.
