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.

"The friendship shown and care given to my mum allowed her to enjoy her final years and gave us great peace of mind."

Mr David Duncan, relative of resident at Drumclay Care Home

The team at Ringshill Care Home in Huntingdon recently surprised staff member Linda Pollard with a celebration for her 60th birthday. Staff and residents got together to surprise her with a party at the home.

Linda had been on holiday and had no idea what her colleagues were planning. She came back into work to find the home was decorated with birthday balloons and banners. All the staff and residents gathered to give Linda her big surprise and to let her know how special she is to the home. There was birthday cake and other treats for everyone to enjoy. Staff treated Linda to a large canvas print of “Home Sweet Home” which she was extremely grateful for.

“It was a brilliant idea to surprise Linda on her return from holiday, she had no idea what our team had planned for her. The party was great, everyone enjoyed it, especially the residents” said Amos Samasuwo, Home Manager at Ringshill.

Happy 60th Birthday Linda, from all at Four Seasons Health Care.

Over the past 4 years, Hesslewood House has arranged a Summer Fun Day in which all the Four Seasons Health Care local homes join together and compete in various games and competitions to win prizes for their homes. This year the theme was ‘Countries around the World’. Each of the homes went to town with their costumes. Residents, relatives and friends were all invited to come and join the fun day which turned out to be a great day for all.

There were 7 homes that took part in the day; Hesslewood House as China, Beech Tree as France, Broadacres as India, Randolph House as Australia, Brimington as Egypt, Beech House as Hawaii and Layden Court as Mexico. As part of this, both staff and residents competed to have the best costumes, best themed cake, best decorated wheelchair and best decorated walking frame. Each entry was fantastic; all the homes put a great amount of effort into their decorations and costumes.

Alongside the theme competitions, the staff were also challenging one another in various games and races throughout the day. The teams were able to take part in an obstacle course, egg and spoon races, skipping races, relays and 3 legged races which were great entertainment for everyone involved. There was also hook a duck and a raffle to take part in which helped raised funds for the next Summer Fun Day. There was live entertainment by a local musician as well as a wide selection of food and cakes for everyone to enjoy.

The winners all won prizes to use at their homes such as a barbeque, gardening equipment and a water feature. Randolph won the races and best costume, Beech Tree won best walking frame, Hesslewood won best cake and Brimington won best wheelchair.

Jayne Clark, Regional Manager, said “What a fabulous day our region had! It was a really well organised event that went without a hitch. As you can see from the photos, everyone really enjoyed taking part in the races and competitions. The effort put in to the costumes and decorations by each home was tremendous. We are all looking forward to doing it all again next year, plans are already underway!”

“I am just about to retire from Ladymead Care Home, as the Home Manager after 18 years, and it is a dream come true to present this ROCK Award to my fabulous team. Ladymead is a special place and much of this can be put down to the spirit, care and friendship of the staff. The wellbeing and happiness of our residents is their number one priority and you only have to visit to see this for yourself”, said an emotional Anne.

A ROCK award is a nationwide internal honour that specifically highlights the impact a Four Season Health Care employee has made on the lives of people living in one of their care homes. Staff are nominated for an award by either residents, their relatives or friends, who have witnessed or experienced staff members demonstrating excellent standards of care and kindness in their role.
