My father who has vascular dementia moved to the home end of September after been on the waiting list for several months, prior to this dad was on a specialised small dementia unit about twenty miles away, he appeared very unhappy there at times as wanted to be in Skegness near my mum. When a bed came free for dad at Aspen Lodge I was on holiday, on return from holiday I visited my dad at Aspen Lodge and was overwhelmed to see how he had settled so well and he looked so much better in himself as the environment appears to be a lot better for my dad. I am so happy my dad appears to be comfortable in his new surroundings, the staff I saw whilst visiting appeared to be happy and communicated well with the residents

Four Seasons Health Care were well represented at the finals of the British Journal of Nursing Awards earlier this month with four colleagues flying the flag for the organisation.
Gary Cousins was a runner up in the Infection Control and Prevention Nurse category, Colin Sheeran was a runner up in the Mental Health Nurse of the Year category and Joanne Strain was a runner up in the British Nurse of the Year category.
However, further plaudits need to be given to Alana Irvine who was crowned the Nutritional Nurse of the Year, after being nominated by colleagues for her continued commitment to residents’ nutrition.
Alana has been part of the driving force behind Four Seasons nutrition innovations to meet the varying needs of the people in our care. We are able to monitor residents’ nutritional needs, with technology that flags up weight loss, whether a resident has difficulty swallowing or needs assistance when eating or drinking to the care team.
Nutrition is something we take very seriously here at Four Seasons and Alana’s win recognises all of the hard work done across the board in this area.
