The Hospital of God has a long and proud history of working with vulnerable people living in the North East of England. Established in 1273 by Bishop Robert de Stichell to help poor and elderly people, throughout the centuries we have taken this founding ethos and developed into a modern organisation meeting a range of 21st century needs.

Community Care

Community Pastimes

At the Hospital of God, we offer a range of services to suit all sorts of lifestyles. If you want help to get out into the community, and access activities you enjoy, our Community Pastimes team may be able to help.

The Bridge

Nobody should have to worry about what to do should you, or a loved one, receive a diagnosis of dementia. The Bridge is here to support and inform you to live well with dementia.

The Heathers Day Centre

Receiving a diagnosis of dementia doesn't mean life cannot be enjoyed. Our day centre at Hartlepool is the perfect place to socialise, explore new hobbies and receive the best possible support.

Minerva House Day Centre

If you have a diagnosis of dementia or memory problems, Minerva House is a safe, warm and welcoming day centre where you can meet new people and enjoy a wide range of activities.

The Heathers

A community space for people of any age living with dementia, those experiencing memory problems or anyone who is isolated and lonely.
