The Prestige Group

Purpose built care homes, providing personalised care in a modern environment.

Why Prestige?

Prestige is a mid-size, growing Care Quality Commission registered provider organisation, local to the North East. We are dedicated to the needs, safety, dignity and welfare of the many residents, families and employees who enjoy our specifically designed facilities and person-centred care packages.

Our philosophy is that every individual is unique, even if they share similar circumstances, a similar illness or frailty, or have shared wishes and wants, and we strive therefore to deliver individualised, person focused care and support that meet the residents’ unique requirements and preferences at every point of their journey with us.

By designing our own care environments, by offering bespoke tailored plans of care to you and bespoke learning to our employees, based around the disciplines and specialist care provisions we offer within our highly maintained and superbly equipped care centres, we know we will provide the evolving support specific to your needs and wishes. When you choose a Prestige Care Centre you choose to be treat as an individual even when living among other like-minded persons. Our Care Centres are local to you and are run and staffed by local folk. We provide more than care, we provide history

Auguste Communities – Our future

This year sees the launch of our Auguste Communities. Our Auguste Communities are specialised environments designed exclusively for those living with a dementia or a related syndrome. They will sit in each care centre and we are launching our first Auguste community flagship in 2019

Auguste Deter was a German woman in her early 50s, a wife and Mother and was also the first person to ever receive the diagnosis dementia of the Alzheimers type. It was her life and death and subsequent contribution to our understanding of the pathology of dementia that inspires us to celebrate person before disease. This is our approach long before dementia crept in there was a person, the person remains, yes, changes somewhat but still that loved one, so we begin our care from the person, it only then we compensate for the effects of the diseases (there are many which make up the term dementia not just the Alzheimers type)

Similarly, if you look up the definition of community it reads people living together with a shared purpose – so for us the Auguste communities sums up our philosophy brilliantly. Look for Auguste communities near you. You will be assured of dedicated, evidence based and compassionate dementia caring whenever you see our logo.
