Had done a recci on this place previous and knew it was an early doors type of explore, it was nice to see this place is not trashed and was a pleasure to walk around all be it a little smelly. You were reminded of the elderly residents, as some of the rooms had bumper packs of granny n grandad nappies :eek:
Visited with d4rk-ins1ght
History:-
Wear Court Nursing Home provided nursing and personal care for 30 older people. The three-storey house was originally a residential dwelling and was converted to a care home in 1993. There is a passenger lift, which provides access to most areas of the home. A stair lift provides access to several bedrooms on the first floor that are inaccessible via the passenger lift. There are twenty-seven bedrooms, four of which are double and are currently used as single rooms. Eight single and two double rooms have en-suite toilet
facilities however, some are not of a suitable size to allow access for wheelchair users or people with mobility difficulties. Corridors and door widths are wide enough to allow access for wheelchair users. The laundry, kitchen, dining room and lounge areas are all on the ground floor with the majority of bedrooms on the upper floors. There is a conservatory to the rear of the building, which overlooks the private and mature gardens. Fees vary and details are available directly from the home. The costs of newspapers, hairdressing, and toiletries are not included in the fees.
The move to close the home came after a fire safety inspection demanded 48 mahogany doors in the property be changed.
Owner Dr David Ratliff requested financial assistance from Sunderland Social Services as he claimed the change would cost more than £20,000, but was refused.
And because he says the authority suspended new admissions to Wearcourt following the fire report at the end of June 2011, it cannot stay open
