Durham – Croft House

Full Time Care

Full Time Care can appear frightening to people, at The Croft we aim to take the fear away by providing high quality caring staff who understand your needs.


Respite Care

Why not just come in for a few days now and again for a short break and see whether you like it or not? It is an opportunity for your carers and family members to have a short break too!

Day Care

Day Care is another service that the home offers. An opportunity to come in for the day or just a few hours to enjoy the company of other like minded people, to take a bath or to just relax in comfortable and safe surroundings.

Activities & Visitors

Activities are provided to suit you and your wishes at different times of the day. Family and friends are welcome to visit at any time.
