Piper Court:

Piper Court Care Home is situated in a housing estate in Stockton-on-Tees. It is a traditional working-class community made up of hard-working, warm and generous people.

The welcome we give to visitors reflects the friendliness that is evident in the wider community.  As people come through the door they are greeted with a smile and asked if they would like a drink, no matter who they are.

When staff interact with residents, we don’t want them to be someone they’re not.  Lots of our staff are from the local community, so interaction should be just as it’s always been.  This is such a close community and we want to encourage social rapport, so not only are staff very warm, they use colloquialisms.  We get the families involved too – it’s a very eclectic approach.
