We are proud to offer high-quality care and support to people with complex needs in Sunderland, and to have created 100 new jobs for the local community.

A supportive and empowering environment

Charlotte Lloyd, Director of Commissioning said: "We are thrilled to announce the opening of Hylton Grange.

"Our new care home is designed to provide a supportive and empowering environment for adults with complex care needs.

About Hylton Grange

Hylton Grange specialises in supporting younger adults living with dementia, acquired brain injuries, complex mental health conditions and physical disabilities. 

Hylton Grange is split into three, ten-bed communities, as small group living provides a more homely, supportive, and responsive care environment. Each of the 30 bedrooms has its own en-suite wet room.

The units have lots of communal space with their own dining room, lounge, quiet lounge and a sensory bathroom. 

Residents can also enjoy an activities hub, therapy, room, hair salon and large accessible gardens for socialising with others. The home has its own therapy room providing a dedicated space for rehabilitation.
