Care Home in Durham Overview

Bowburn Care Centre is located in the former mining village of Bowburn, which offers easy road links to the nearby city of Durham. Residents are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities, from donkey therapy and arts and crafts sessions to flower arranging workshops and games, all of which boost confidence and self-esteem. Other facilities of our residential care include a hairdresser, shop, handy newspaper deliveries for those who like to keep up-to-date with local stories, and a chiropodist. Durham Cathedral is just a few miles down the road, or English Heritage site Finchale Priory offers a peaceful walk by the River Wear and a handy café for refreshments.

    At St Philips Care we give people a sense of place and somewhere they really love to live, making each of our homes fun, friendly and comfortable places to be.

    As a group of professional carers, we specialize in the health and well being of people from all walks of life and all ages, and take enormous pride in the high levels of care that we deliver.

    Our homes offer a range of support for adult and elderly people whether that is for residential, dementia, mental health or respite care. We pride ourselves on our experienced, highly trained teams which include carers, support staff, and registered nurses and the group offers all of our teams the resources to meet our residents’ daily needs.




    St Philips Care focuses each and every care plan on the individual, taking into consideration their personal requirements and tastes.

    We take time out to know and understand our residents even before they move in, not only by talking to them but also by including their family and friends during their stay to make sure that we have the best possible plan tailored to each individual.

    We consider not only care aspects but also personal interests, social life, working life, and companionships. Special consideration is given to their personal space and bedroom, their favourite meals and dinner choices, understanding, monitoring and developing a personal care plan and generally keeping good channels of communication with family and friends at all times.
