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.
Award winning care
Four Seasons are delighted to have won, and to be shortlisted for, a number of awards in 2015.
"My mother has received excellent care at the home and we have no faults at all. The home delivers first rate care by wonderful staff."

The team at Nightingale Care Home in Dungannon recently threw a special retirement party for one of their longest serving colleagues. May Doherty, senior member of the Laundry Team, retired from Nightingale after 22 years of faithful service.
To celebrate the special occasion, the team arranged a vintage style tea party for both residents and the team. The dining room was decorated in vintage bunting and table cloths. Some members of the team decided to dress in Victorian style clothing whilst they served afternoon tea and home baked goods. May told us “I forgot where I was, the place all looked so good decorated the way it was – so well presented. It was like I was in a National Trust house having vintage afternoon tea. I have always wanted to do that so this made the afternoon that extra special”.
Hazel Black, Home Manager, said “The party was our way of celebrating the time May has spent working at Nightingale. She has been so dedicated and faithful; this was the least we could do as a token of thanks for the care and consideration over her 22 years of service. Thank you May for everything”.

The residents at The Grange Care Home in Darlington recently enjoyed their afternoon of entertainment which was provided by the husband of one of the residents at The Grange. The team arranged for him to come and sing to the residents and also provided some party food for them to tuck into.
Phil, husband of Kitty who is a resident at The Grange, regularly visits the home to sing to the residents on their karaoke evenings and happy hours. The residents loved having a sing along with Phil and some also got up on their feet for some dancing.
