Welcome to Downshaw Lodge Care Home

You'll find Downshaw Lodge in the market town of Ashton-under-Lyne, which lies on the north bank of the River Thame in Lancashire.

Here we provide high-quality care 24 hours a day. Residents have varying needs, from specialist support to general assistance with everyday living. Some stay with us permanently, others stay for short periods of time.

We offer specialist nursing care for individuals with dementia, and have a male-only dementia unit. We also offer respite care to give home carers a much needed break.

Residents can pursue their hobbies in communal and quiet lounges throughout the home. These areas are used for relaxing and socialising, and are great places to invite friends and families to when they visit.

International nurse's day

20 May 2015

At Four Seasons Health Care we're proud of our nurses and appreciate the care and compassion they demonstrate in our care homes. To recognise the great job they do every day of the year we marked International Nurses’ Day on 12th May. To help with the celebrations, this year we sent all our nurses a
box of chocolates and a thank you card from our CEO, Tim Hammond.

Nurses’ Day is an important opportunity to celebrate the enormous contribution that nursing staff make every single day. For the past 50 years the celebration has taken place on 12th May, the anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth.

We believe that good care starts with having the right people to deliver it. We work hard to ensure we’re recruiting the right people, and invest in training and development to encourage them to stay – our aim is to be the best place to work in the care sector.

Rydal-ROCK-Award

17 May 2015

On 30th April, two dedicated members of Rydal Care Home’s team of staff were presented with ROCK Awards in recognition of their exceptional care to residents and the high standards they consistently demonstrate within the home.

The carers who received the much admired ROCK Award were Paul Stewart Senior Carer and Ann O’Neill Care Assistant, seen here in the photograph with the Home Manager, Jacqui Hodgson (centre).

“Since starting work at Rydal just a few months ago, I have been impressed by the level of compassion, kindness and commitment demonstrated by both Paul and Anne. All too often the care industry is acknowledged only when things go wrong and I am proud to have some excellent staff in the home. As prestigious as it is, the ROCK Award is only a gesture in acknowledgement of the huge amount of care given by these two fantastic members of staff” said Jacqui Hodgson, Home Manager
