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.

alzheimersday

21 Aug 2015

Four Seasons Health Care homes across the UK are preparing for World Alzheimer's Day on 21 September 2015. The day is part of the fourth global World Alzheimer’s Month which aims to raise awareness and challenge stigma, and focus on the great work going on all over the world to fight dementia.

The theme of this years’ World Alzheimer's Day 2015 is Remember Me and focusses on helping people to learn to spot the signs of dementia, but also not to forget about loved ones who are living with dementia, or those who may have passed away. In keeping with this theme many Four Seasons homes will be opening a dementia café for the day with a reminiscence theme, and professionals on hand to offer advice and information.

We have received a record numbers of ROCK (Recognition of Care and Kindness) Award nominations this month here at Four Seasons Health Care. We are getting lots of nominations each week from our residents and their relatives and friends, expressing their kind words and heartfelt messages about employees in our care homes. We know there is always room for improvement, but reading these nominations, it is clear to see the positive impact some of our staff make on residents and their relatives.

A number of homes have created their own award ceremonies in which personalities in the local area have visited the home to present the ROCK Awards to members of staff. One of our Home Managers has even compared it to the Oscars because her staff members have received so many awards.

A ROCK award is a nationwide honour that highlights the impact a Four Seasons Health Care employee has made on the lives of people living in one of our care homes. It’s an internal award where staff can be nominated by residents, their relatives and their friends, who have witnessed or experienced employees demonstrating excellent standards of care and kindness within their role.

Nominations can be made via the homes with nomination cards or directly through our website by clicking here.

It was a day of TV quiz shows, indoor games and lots of fun at Downshaw Lodge Care Home, Ashton on Care Home Open Day (June 19th).

Young and old came together to enjoy the wonderful day with lots of family involvement and homemade cakes and Paul Bedford the home’s Activities Leader seen here in the centre of the photo entertained everyone with his Bruce Forsyth impression.

Alison Chadwick, Manager at the home, said: “We always love welcoming visitors and it was great that so many people came along to celebrate the day with us including Age UK. We see Care Home Open Day as a way of showing people what life is like in a care home, and to see behind the doors for themselves. “

Care Home Open Day is celebrated by care homes across the country. It aims to encourage stronger relationships between care homes and the local community. It also provides a chance for people to come and see what life inside a home is really like and get to know some of the fascinating people who live there.
