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.
"I am very happy living at Dolphin View and my brother lives here also."

Charlton Park Care Home in London recently opened their very own beauty salon for residents to spoil themselves in. The salon will not only offer a hairdressing service, but also facilities for a manicure and pedicure whilst you enjoy a cup of tea and biscuits.
The newly decorated salon has gone down a treat with the residents at Charlton Park. The salon allows them to get a new hairdo on their doorstep. They can also opt to have a manicure at the mini nail bar with a choice of many different colours for them to decide from. The room is designed to help the residents pamper themselves if and when they want.
Aileen Nimmo, Regional Business Development Manager, told us “Residents are enjoying all the benefits on offer at the new beauty salon. It has been a real success and we’re so glad to have this facility available at Charlton Park. We’ve had some really positive comments from the residents so far and it’s so nice to see them all be able to pamper themselves”.

A member of the team at The Grange Care Home in Darlington took part in a local competition in order to raise money. The challenge was called Muddy Mayhem which involved a tricky obstacle course with lots of mud and water to add to the difficulty.
Jay Malik, Personal Activities Leader at The Grange, decided to take on the challenge to raise money for the resident’s activities fund. The obstacle course included nets, pools of water, slides and tunnels, all of which were caked in mud and water to make it that extra tough. Jay completed the course in good time and managed to raise a great amount of money to go towards activities for the residents.
Jay told us “It was a fab day and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The muddy slide was definitely the hardest obstacle – it took me a couple of attempts to make my way up. I’m so grateful for all the sponsors – they will allow me to arrange some great activities for the residents”.
Dolores Pooley, Home Manager expressed how proud she was of Jay and she knows the residents are too. Dolores said “It’s great to see how dedicated our team are to making sure the residents get the best out of The Grange”.
