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.

There’s been fun all round at Howdon Care Centre in Wallsend over the past week as they celebrated Dignity through Action day, Chinese New Year and Shrove Tuesday. The team have been extremely busy arranging various activities for residents and family members to get involved in.
To celebrate Dignity through Action Day (Feb 1st), the team decided it would be a good idea to create a canvas which contains thoughts about dignity and what it meant to different people. Residents, relatives and visitors all got involved to share their opinion on dignity. There was also a buffet throughout the day which everyone tucked into.
As part of Chinese New Year, everyone enjoyed entertainment provided by a Chinese Dragon magician who wowed the audience with tricks and mystical illusions. To get everyone in the spirit, the catering team put together a traditional Chinese meal with prawn crackers and fortune cookies for everyone to enjoy.
Of course not missing out on the fun of Pancake Day, Howdon enjoyed a pancake picnic in which residents could choose and prepare their own fillings to go in their pancakes. Some strange combinations were made but everyone was full up to the brim with pancakes by the end of the day.
Ruth Todd, Home Manager, told us “We’ve had a wonderful week here at Howdon and the fun doesn’t stop here as we have loads of other events coming up!”

To celebrate the late Robert Burns, Willow Lodge Care Home in Newcastle upon Tyne celebrated his life with readings of his famous poems and traditional Scottish music. The team invited families to join at the home with their loved ones for an evening of entertainment and hearty food.
The team thought it would be a wonderful idea to invite a local bagpipe player to come in and perform for the guests to get everyone in the Scottish spirit. The home was decorated with tartan and red to add to the theme. The catering team made some Scottish treats for everyone to try whilst Robert Burns’ poems were read.
Lindsay Johnson, Home Manager, told us “Willow Lodge had a wonderful evening for Burns Night. Everyone got into the spirit and really enjoyed our bagpipe performance. The Scottish theme got everyone talking and sharing past memories they had of various holidays and day trips they had there which was great to listen to”.

St Catherines Care Home in Bolton put together a Digni-Tea party as part of the recent Dignity through Action Day – February 1st. The team invited residents and family members to join at the home for an afternoon of cream tea and entertainment.
To add to the day, the team invited local singer, Keith Moore, to come and perform for the guests. In the interval, cream tea and scones were served to everyone which went down well. To recognise the importance of dignity, everyone wrote down on a paper tea bag what dignity means to them. These were then all put into a large teapot for people to read.
A relative told us “We enjoyed the whole afternoon, singing and dancing to the music. We were made to feel extremely welcome by all the team. Cream tea and scones between the music was a great idea! A good day had by all”.
