Welcome to Gotton Manor (Nursing) Care Home

You'll find Gotton Manor (nursing) Care Home about 2.5 miles outside Taunton, Somerset.

Here our experienced registered nurses and well trained care assistants provide quality nursing care to people over the age of 65, around the clock.

Our property is set in 10 acres of mature landscaped gardens, deep in the countryside. The main building is an old manor house, tastefully decorated, and retaining many original features. There are open fireplaces in the lounge, and high ceilings and a beautiful chandelier in the entrance hall.

Our bright, spacious dining room has French windows leading out to a patio area, where people living here enjoy fine views of the surrounding hills and countryside.

All bedrooms have great personal-safety systems; many of the singles have en-suites. We love residents to bring their own pieces of furniture and accessories to personalise these spaces, and make them more familiar and homely.

Riverside-Fundraising

20 Apr 2015

Staff and supporters at Riverside View Care Home in Darlington donned their walking boots to climb an iconic North Yorkshire hill to raise funds for their residents.

The dedicated team were joined by friends and family of the home’s residents to climb Roseberry Topping, a landmark 330m high hill near Great Ayton.

Despite the poor weather, the team managed to reach the summit and their efforts raised money to spend on activities and trips for Riverside View residents.

The walk was one of a variety of fundraising events organised by staff who continually raise money for the residents fund.

Home manager, Claire Westmorland said, “We battled through the wind and rain and reached the top of Roseberry Topping. Staff and relatives took part and we raised about £400 for the residents fund which was a great success.”

Enjoying-the-tea-dance

15 Apr 2015

Residents from several Four Seasons care homes in Northumberland revived the traditional tea dance when they get together for a social afternoon on Wednesday 25th March at the New Delaval & Newsham Working Men’s Club. They were joined by friends, relatives and staff, as well as members of the local community.

As well as taking to the dance floor, guests were invited to take part in a singalong session and bingo. There was a range of refreshments served and a chance to take part in a free raffle.

Tracie White, Regional Manager for Four Seasons in the North East said, “The social afternoon is a great way for residents to get out to enjoy themselves, to meet people from other Four Seasons care homes and engage with members of the wider local community. We are planning to make the event a regular monthly occurrence.”

The afternoon and early evening dances, with a civilised break for tea and refreshments, are coming back into vogue. Before the 1950s, tea dances were a popular way to socialise; however, they declined in the 60s as the club and disco scene emerged. They are now beginning to make a return to popularity, possibly linked to the success of ‘Strictly Come Dancing’.

Shauna-rooney-staff-nurse

13 Apr 2015

Shauna Rooney, a Staff Nurse at Rush Hall Care Home in Limavady, has been shortlisted for the 2015 national Nursing Standard Nurse Awards.

Qualifying as a nurse only two years ago, Shauna was nominated for the award by Gary Cousins, Infection Control and Clinical Development Nurse for Four Seasons Health Care Northern Ireland, after implementing a successful Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) pilot programme in the home. Shauna also helped other staff members to develop their knowledge of IPC and understand how the theory could be best applied in clinical practice.

Avoiding the spread of infections is important, particularly within a care home environment, as older people tend to have a weaker immune system. Additionally care homes often provide care for residents who may be living with a cognitive impairment and therefore are not as aware of the risk of infection. As a result, staff need to be able to help with hygiene measures to avoid preventable illness.

Gary said, “We are delighted that Shauna is a finalist for the 2015 Nursing Standard Nurse Awards. Her dedication to developing her fellow staff members’ understanding of best IPC care meant that the pilot programme was a resounding success, and we wish her the best of luck.”

The Nursing Standard Nurse Awards recognise nursing professionals across the UK who have demonstrated clinical excellence and whose innovations have helped to improve the quality of patient care. Finalists from each category will attend the award ceremony on 1st May at The Savoy Hotel in London, and all winners will be considered for the overall award, RCN Nurse of the Year 2015.
