About Us

 Enhanced Care

It has always been essential for us at Enhanced Care North East to provide a different kind of residential, dementia and nursing care for elderly residents and specialist care services for children. Our care services are located in Newcastle, Gateshead, Durham and Teesside in the North East of England. Our accommodation is where our residents feel safe, comfortable and relaxed. We always offer this service at the Local Authority recommended fee level, and we guarantee that we will not charge more than this level or top-up fees

Enhanced Care was founded in 1983 by Gary Lewis and is now managed by a further two generations of his family.

Our staff are at the heart of Enhanced Care North East. Accordingly, we only appoint experienced professionals. Staff who enjoy caring for young and older people as if they are looking after their own children and family. Enhanced Care has continuous, comprehensive training and assessment programmes which always monitor feedback from our residents and their families. We have specialists in daily care for older people and nursing and dementia care.

Our children and young people professionals specialise in autism, autistic behaviour, learning difficulties and emotional, psychological, behavioural and social needs.

Looking to the Future

Enhanced Care is continually developing and improving all aspects of our services. Including, for instance, the maintenance and technology of our facilities, employee development and the latest in therapeutic, nursing, dementia and medical care. Furthermore, we are looking to expand our services, with more homes and increased benefits. If you would like more information, please contact us. We’d love to hear from you.

Our Commitment

We are committed to providing:

  • Care – helping to enable our older and younger residents to maintain a high quality of life, respecting their individuality, independence, confidentiality and privacy.
  • Service – to deliver a consistent standard and appropriate response to the individual’s needs efficiently and effectively helping our younger or elderly residents maximise their emotional and social needs.
  • Value – to make our services affordable and available to the many, not just a few.
