Our Homes

St Catherine’s in Newcastle and Holy Cross in Sunderland provide:

• Nursing care • Residential care • Recuperative care

Compassion, dignity and respect are at the heart of our care, bringing reassurance to our residents and invaluable peace of mind to relatives.

We provide care that is truly holistic, tailored not only to the specific needs of each resident but to their individual likes and preferences, too.

You will find our staff teams to be both professional and warm, aiming for excellence in everything they do whilst building close friendships with our residents and their families.

We believe that older people living in care should continue to live as full a life as possible, maintaining independence and choice in all that they do.

Meet Our Registered Manager

Registered Home Manager and Director of Compliance

Gill Ennis is responsible for and leads our friendly, compassionate staff teams at both nursing homes, Holy Cross and St Catherine’s.

Having worked for St Cuthbert’s Care for 31 years, Gill is highly qualified in her role as Registered Manager, both academically and practically, having a wealth of experience in a range of care environments, but most importantly, having a genuine commitment and passion for elderly care.

“I was first inspired by my Grandmother to work with older people at the age of 12 when I started helping at the local nursing home…and from there it all began!

I feel so lucky to go to work every day to do a job that I don’t just enjoy, but I absolutely love. The happiest part of my day is speaking with the residents and supporting my staff to become the best they can possibly be.

Thank you for choosing to find out more about our nursing homes. Together with my staff teams, we understand that making the decision to move into a care home is difficult and that feeling you have made the right choice is incredibly important. Each of the homes holds a special place in my heart for very different reasons and it is very important to find out what would make it special for you when choosing your new home.

As a result of coronavirus there may be restrictions on welcoming you to view our homes but we will do our very best to invite you in, whilst keeping everyone safe. My Home Managers, Lesley Oliver and Emma Parkin, alongside their nursing teams are on hand to offer you all the support and advice you may need, alternatively you can get in touch with me directly by using ‘Contact Us’ and I will be happy to help.

Please follow the links below to view each nursing home, meet the Home Managers and learn a little more to help you make the right choice, which I do hope will be either St Catherine’s or Holy Cross. I look forward to greeting you with the warmest of welcome”
