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.
"All the staff made my respite stay so smooth. They are all a credit to the caring profession."

Hallgarth Care Home in Durham recently held a coffee morning in order to raise money for the Alzheimer's Society. The team decorated Bailey's Bar, Hallgarth's very own bar, with blue and white balloons, flowers and ribbons to get in the spirit. They also provided plenty of homemade treats for everyone to enjoy with their hot drinks.
The team, residents, family and friends of Hallgarth all joined in the fun to raise awareness and money for Alzheimer's Society. Everyone was invited to spend the morning drinking tea and coffee, enjoy a cake or two, have a chin wag with other guests but most importantly enjoy themselves. A representative from the Alzheimer's Society was also present at the coffee morning - she was able to answer any questions raised and provide information to the guests.
Angela Muir, Home Manager, told us "I'm so glad we decided to hold the coffee morning, it was a great success and everyone enjoyed themselves. Although the weather outside was a bit miserable, the cheer inside was wonderful. We managed to raise an impressive £50 for the Alzheimer's Society from kind donations made by our visitors. The cakes were also lovely and enjoyed by all. We will definitely be holding another coffee morning soon".

Gowrie House Care Home in Kirkcaldy recently held a flower arranging event for the residents to get involved with. The idea was suggested by one of the residents who expressed how much she loved flower arrangement and would like to get other residents involved in it.
The team at Gowrie House thought this idea was great and purchased some beautiful flowers and baskets for the residents to get creative with. Three residents, Betty, Winnie and Betty were very eager to have a go at flower arrangement and show off their talents. The activity was a great success and everyone made lovely flower baskets. These will be displayed in the home for all the residents to admire.
Anjie Restar, Home Manager, told us “For me this activity can grow, the residents really got involved with colour schemes and which were their favourites. We will definitely be doing this again and hoping more residents get involved. The feedback we got was great so we’re really pleased it went so well”.
