Four Seasons Health Care | UK care homes

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.

Elizabeth Flemming Care Home in Hetton-Le-Hole recently took part in a fund raising event for the Alzheimer’s Society. Staff, residents and relatives all grouped together to take part in the Walk for a World without Dementia event that took place in Hetton-Le-Hole.

Both young and old teamed up to take on the walk with the youngest participant being only 3 years old. Despite the weather being a little off, everyone was happy and enjoyed themselves thoroughly. The walk was started by the Deputy Mayor of Hetton-Le-Hole and his wife who cheered everyone on as they set off on their journey around the park. After all the hard work, the team rewarded themselves with a picnic where the Mayor kindly joined them to talk with residents about their day.

Lorraine Woods, Home Manager, told us “It was such a lovely day and a great way to get the residents involved in fundraising. Everyone enjoyed it and we had such a laugh. It was also good for the Mayor to come and join us afterwards for our picnic; this was a nice experience for the residents especially. The donations were so kind and all funds will go to the Alzheimer’s Society”.

The Elms Care Centre in Louth has recently unveiled their man-made beach located right on their doorstep. The team wanted to create a unique and enjoyable atmosphere for the residents to use on a daily basis. They celebrated the grand opening of the beach with a Hawaiian style beach party and Great British seaside themed refreshments.

The event was a way for residents and relatives to enjoy a day at the beach without travelling to the coast. Children, and adults, played in the sand and created some impressive sandcastles. To add to the fun, bats and balls were available for everyone to play on the sand. The beach even had its own donkey. Families were able to sit in The Elms’ bird watching area and admire the local wildlife in the sunshine. Fish and chips in cones were also on offer to top of the seaside theme; with afternoon tea and cupcakes for dessert.

The project was created by Mick O’Hara, maintenance person, and Guy Evison, gardener at The Elms. Both Mick and Guy wanted to produce an environment for the residents to enjoy at the home that they wouldn’t usually be able to. They worked extremely hard to ensure the beach was created to the high standard they had planned. The beach will be available for residents all year round and become a great place for their visitors to enjoy too.

Tina Goodwin, Home Manager, told us “I’m so proud to have this wonderful development at The Elms; both Mick and Guy worked ever so hard on it. The Hawaiian beach party was a success; it was lovely to see the residents kick off their shoes and sit on the sand with their families. The project was a way of enriching the environment and the lives of our residents as many of them are unable to go out of the home and enjoy the seaside. I can’t wait to enjoy many more days at our seaside with residents and relatives”.

Four Seasons Health Care homes across the UK are preparing for World Alzheimer's Day on 21 September 2015. The day is part of the fourth global World Alzheimer’s Month which aims to raise awareness and challenge stigma, and focus on the great work going on all over the world to fight dementia.

The theme of this years’ World Alzheimer's Day 2015 is Remember Me and focusses on helping people to learn to spot the signs of dementia, but also not to forget about loved ones who are living with dementia, or those who may have passed away. In keeping with this theme many Four Seasons homes will be opening a dementia café for the day with a reminiscence theme, and professionals on hand to offer advice and information.
