The Gables, Middlesbrough, Cleveland & Teesside

The Gables prides itself on the care and attention given to residents and their families. Carers concentrate on getting to know you and your loved one, enabling professionals to look after physical needs and more importantly delivering what emotional support you and your family need. The Gables accept that choosing a care home is one of the most difficult decisions a family member or advocate can make and are here to help you through that decision, through the move in and beyond.

Excellent care is the key objective of each of the team members. Caring for those who can no longer look after themselves is what they do best, with an approach that takes into account that although there will be aspects of daily care and activity that residents could not manage at home, carers continue to encourage independence wherever possible - thus enabling residents to make the most of what they can do on a daily basis.

Care workers support an active lifestyle alongside professional care as part of a core mission, they endeavour to ensure that both residents and visitors enjoy their time spent at the home. They have all of the usual benefits of a care home environment, including en suite rooms, excellent communal spaces and areas for residents to enjoy quiet times, by themselves or with their families.

Professionals also offer excellent activities at the home, which offer stimulation and engagement to all residents. An activities co-ordinator works with individuals to ensure that they offer activities that will suit each person and sometimes this means that one to one activity is more appropriate than group activities.

The rooms are just basic i.e. wardrobe set of drawers. There is private wash room and toilet. The overall care is excellent. My brother is immobile and needs his meals brought to him and on most occasions help with feeding. This is done by the good and excellent care staff. He needs to be on a soft diet, so the home prepares his special meals for him. There is always plenty of activities in the home but he cannot participate. There is also his own TV in his room. The nursing staff are always on hand if needed and checking he is ok.

The Gables has a homely caring atmosphere into which my father has settled quickly and he now considers it his home. My only concern is insufficient staff particularly nursing staff. Overall I would highly recommend this home to anybody looking for a home from home for a vulnerable relative.

I have always found The Gables to be a very good home for my father. I visited several homes before choosing a permanent place for my father and was immediately impressed by the overall standard of the premises, the accommodation and the staff. Their professionalism and caring has been outstanding and I cannot praise highly enough certain staff members and carers. My concerns have always been listened to and dealt with in a compassionate and prompt manner.
