Hi, my name is Jimmy and I am Manager of Heatherfield Care Home.
I have been a nurse since leaving school and my professional qualifications are Registered Adult Nurse and Registered Mental Health Nurse.
I promote a relaxed but professional working environment, always putting residents first, which helps to encourage their independence which in turn, helps them to maintain a feeling of satisfaction and well-being.
I have worked at Heatherfield for over four years in various guises and have been the manager here for one year starting mid-pandemic. To say the last year has been challenging would be a gross understatement, but with the support of our exceptional staff, allied professionals, our residents and their families, we have managed to weather this awful pandemic
With visiting restrictions gradually being responsibly relaxed, it is my hope we will very soon get back to normal and I look forward to meeting new families and seeing old friends very soon.
Finally, I would like to thank everyone for the support you have shown all of us at Heatherfield which has helped to make a truly traumatic time more bearable.

About Heatherfield. Cramlington
Our home is divided into 3 units, catering for individuals with general nursing, dementia nursing and younger physically disabled care needs. The emphasis is on individual care. Only very high calibre of staff are employed with a commitment to ongoing training and the majority of staff have achieved NVQ qualifications.
Each of the 74 single en-suite bedrooms have been beautifully decorated and furnished with carefully selected bespoke fabrics and carpets, giving residents the perfect backdrop to personalise their rooms and make Heatherfield their home.
Many of the bedrooms feature en-suite wet rooms, with specialist furniture and mobility aids where required to ensure the comfort and wellbeing of our residents. LCD televisions and internet access is provided as standard.
Residents can relax in the privacy of their bedroom or in one of Heatherfield’s many communal lounges which offer a range of formal and informal spaces to chat with other residents, family or friends, and participate in activities and celebrations. Residents have plenty of space to socialise, relax and participate in activities throughout the home. There is lift access to the first ﬂoor. The gardens at Heatherfield are beautiful and have won numerous awards. The gardens are fully accessible to wheelchairs.
Our Housekeeper pays particular attention to health and hygiene of all residents at Heatherfield. Our qualified Chef provides a varied and exciting menu to incorporate choice and special preferences.
We have a purpose built kitchen and laundry facilities, hairdressing room and treatment rooms. All of our exits are secure. You can use any area of the home at any time. We put a lot of emphasis on the social side of our residents lives and we provide an activities programme which will take into consideration all of our residents’ views and choices.
We also welcome professionals from the wider community into Heatherfield, with complementary services, such as hairdressing, chiropody and dental care available by arrangement. We work closely with everyone involved in the care and welfare of our residents, from family and friends to GPs, carers, nursing professionals and nutritionists to meet the demands of our commitment to providing the highest quality care.
There is a large car park, with spaces for residents and visitors, and the Home is conveniently located for access to local amenities including a church and shops, as well as local transport links.
