St Catherine's in Newcastle and Holy Cross in Sunderland provide a range of professional care services including:
Our staff team includes recognised Dignity Champions who each provide leadership and guidance to ensure our residents are cared for with the utmost dignity and respect at all times.
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. Our homes are fully compliant with CQC regulations, with Holy Cross gaining a rating of 'good' under the revised regulations in its recent inspection. Both homes have been awarded the top quality rating by their respective local authorities.
Our services are founded in the Catholic faith and each home has its own on-site chapel; however, we warmly welcome applications from all denominations.

in Sunderland and can accommodate up to 56 residents.
Holy Cross has a choice of lounges and dining areas where residents and visitors can meet, dine and socialise. A wide range of recreational entertainment is on offer and residents can choose to take part in a varied programme of therapeutic sessions and events led by our dedicated activities coordinator. There are excursions to local places of interest and entertainers regularly perform at the home. For the comfort and convenience of our Holy Cross residents there is a library, small shop and hairdressing salon for weekly appointments, all on-site. Free Wi-Fi and supported Skype sessions are also available to our residents.
Visiting priests attend the home daily to celebrate Mass in our beautiful and spacious St Jeanne Jugan chapel, a special feature of Holy Cross that is integral to the home and is particularly valued by our residents.
Holy Cross is set in attractive, landscaped grounds, which have won several Sunderland in Bloom accolades and which extend across the entire front of the building. Accessible pathways, patios and seating areas enable residents and visitors to enjoy the award winning views in peaceful, private surroundings.
