Welcome to St Helens Care Home

Welcome to St Helens Care Home, located in the village of St Helens Auckland, County Durham. This purpose-built home is situated 3 miles from the market town of Bishop Auckland in the shadow of the historic St Helens Church and close to local shops and amenities and is well served by public transport.

Each of our 52 ensuite bedrooms is furnished to a high standard offering Residents the chance to enjoy comfort and tranquillity. At St Helens providing independence and choice is very important – One reason we try and encourage residents to personalise their rooms with their own belongings to help them feel at home.

We believe that life at St Helens should include the best care, the best of life in the best environment.

All Marton Care residents are supported to live an active and fulfilled life. Our person-centred care ethos puts resident’s health and wellbeing central to everything providing a truly holistic care package.

The facilities at St Helens allow residents to enjoy other everyday routines that promote independence, from using the spacious communal lounge and dining rooms, utilising the dedicated activities toom to enjoying the secure gardens and views.


‘We believe that St Helens Care Home will be the perfect choice for you. Our dedicated care team work closely with all our residents, to encourage them to take part in activities that are tailored to their needs based on their lifestyle preferences …’


Our home has a busy activities timetable, built around the key goals of mental stimulation, increased mobility and social engagement. Activities include arts and crafts sessions, gardening, exercise classes, cinema nights, quizzes, musical performances, and pamper sessions. Each activity is designed to enhance life skills and give a feeling of purpose and self-worth. There is a great variety of activities to try, with new activities added frequently.

The in-house chefs will prepare exceptional food from fresh, seasonal produce that’s locally sourced where possible. Menus will include a mix of delicious and nutritious options including traditional classic meals, Residents’ favourites and exciting international cuisine.

St Helens Care Home is proud to be part of the Dementia Friends campaign and other charities to support research on what practices best support people living with dementia to positively influence policy and practice for dementia care in care homes across the UK.
