Welcome To Moorlands
MOORLANDS is a family run business offering a full range of services for older people in Darlington and the surrounding area.
Moorlands was established in 1989, the original residential home was in Moorlands Road in Cockerton Village (hence the name), before we moved to Stanhope Road North in June 2000. As well as a nineteen bed care home we provide day care services, a full range of domiciliary services, an old fashioned meals on wheels service and a laundry service.
The business is run by Michelle and David Smith with youngest son Greg now also helping out. Our philosophy has always been to provide a professional, competent service with the emphasis on caring family values. Every one of our service users is valued by us as an individual with their own strengths and weaknesses which are considered when deciding exactly what help and support we can offer.
Our staff are our greatest asset and are all highly valued by us. We have held Investors In People since 2001 and are accredited users of Jobcentre Plus' two ticks disability symbol. All our staff are chosen for their ability and their caring attitude, they are CRB checked and undergo ongoing training and supervision throughout their employment.
Moorlands is registered with, and inspected by, the Commission for Social Care Inspection and copies of our inspection reports can be accessed via their website www.csci.org.uk. We are also inspected by Darlington Social Services and have contracts with them and Newcastle Social Services.
