A Four Seasons Health Care home is a real home. We really care about people, looking after their health and understanding what makes them happy.
Our care homes are as individual as our residents, but the high standard of care is the same throughout. Our new Quality of Life Programme is a unique way of listening to residents every day to help us deliver the type of care experience they want.

Amanda, a resident at Bearehill Care Home in Brechin wanted to get festive, so she decided she’d like to bake some seasonal goodies.
Karen Millington, Home Manger, said: “Amanda has a real passion for baking. So off she went with a member of the team to get all of the ingredients before coming back home to begin making her shortbread. The results of her baking were absolutely fantastic!”
Here at Four Seasons Health Care we encourage everyone we care for to continue to do the things they enjoy, whether that’s baking, gardening or popping to the shops. Just because you live in a care home doesn’t mean life should be boring.

The main man himself popped into Hallgarth Care Home to find out who’d been naughty and nice during the Durham home’s Christmas Fair.
Angela Muir, Home Manager, said: “We’re very grateful to Father Christmas for popping in during his busiest time of year.
“He got up close and personal with our pet therapy dog Mapachi and his owner Meg. He met resident Mary Murphy, who told him she’d been very good this year, unlike some of the other people in the home, especially the care team! Before he left he visited all of our stalls and gave out early presents to everyone.”
Father Christmas, said: “It was nice to meet everyone at Hallgarth. They had activities suitable for people of all ages. I look forward to visiting them again on Christmas Eve.”
